The other day I played the same Cd only to find that all photos were now 'coasters' and were stills.
I've since tried to copy and 'burn' my latest photos and the XP programme will now only copy to disc, ending up with all being coasters and no slideshow.
On searching for info I found this;
microsoft web site;
Fix a balky Burner and it goes on to say you shouldn't need to do anything special to get it working under Windows XP home edition (or professional). etc/etc
It then goes on, make sure that the feature is properly configured, which I have done and it ok.
It then says if the drive is configured correctly but you end up with coasters instead of readable CD's check to make sure Windows XP Service Pack 1 was installed. Problems in the original release of Windows XP resulted in problems with certain CD-R drives, these issues were fixed in SP1.
I don't appear to have SP1 update on my puter, strange becasue I have it set on automatic downloads, however I went to the update site and it tells me that I can't now download SP1 and SP1a isnot available unless you have SP1.
I have SP2 update and it says all problems have been fixed with this update, obviously the CD burning problem has not.
Anyone able to advise or help. please.
