    Hi Philli, Try putting a new CD in your r/w. If Nero opens up, close it. Now go to Windows explorer and find the files you want to copy. Highlight the fie(s) rt click>copy, then in windows explorer find the r/w drive. Highlight or double click on the r/w drive and in the blank space rt click>paste, then rt click on the page where the files to be copied are and select 'Write these files to CD'...(you could drop and drag on desktop as well .. open the r/w file on desk top, find files to be copied and drag to the open r/w window. After you do this, in the upper left of the window there will be 'Write these files to CD' click on that and follow the simple instructions. Hope this helps.

    How are you burning? If you are using Nero Back Up then the only way to retrieve the files is using restore. That will then overwite the existing files on the Hard drive.
    If you just want to keep a copy of drivers etc then burn the CD as data (CD_ROM ISO)
    Take control of your life. Leave others to control their own.
