    I've been told by many that NeroExpress is the "easiest" way to Save jpg files to a CD.

    I've read the Tutorals ...which seem to talk about Audio files more than jpgs. Nonetheless this is the proceedure I followed

    1.Opened StartSmart then NeroEspress

    2. Screen said "What would you like to burn?. I chose Data

    3. Blank Nero screen opened with the Add button

    4. Went to My Pictures and clicked on the Folder with the jpg pic files --> then Add

    5. Slide that file to the blank Nero screen and hit next

    6. Hit Burn....it went through all the girations of a burn and said "Burn (or something like that) is Complete

    7. I withdrew the burned disc from E Drive and placed it back in. Then the screen came up giving the options of burning several ways but nontheless it said "blank disc"

    So what am I doing wrong??? First everyone agree I should be using the Saving DATA route? I've used Memorex CD-RW discs...do they need to be initialized first before burning to? If so how do I do that?

    To say I am confused and frustrated would be an understatement. If anyone would be kind enough to help me I would greatly appreciate it

    Nero StartSmart offers you to do a Photo Slide show -- just click that and the proper Nero Express module will open up for you !

    You do have an up to date version of Nero 6 ultra with all the modules ?

    Thought I'd add a followup so you might better fully understand.

    I'm trying to save to a CD. I don't know what kind of burner I have as its an internal. I have used both Memorex CD-RW (4X), Maxell CD-R and Memorex Pocket CDs...all with no success.


    I have an Emachine with all the bells and whistles. Yes, it did come with Roxio Creator and yes, I did uninstall it.

    I downloaded a CEM copy of NeroExpress and have been told by many its a slam, dunk. Not so....I follow the directions as given by many as well as the turorial and while the line fills up with a lot of green vertical lines and its says burn was a success.....Its not. After I exit and reinsert the disc and and the screen tells me its a blank disc.

    Now before we get into Nero....isn't there a way to save to a floppy and CD using just Windows XP? It seems to me that would be part of the OS.

    I would appreciate anything someone can offer me.

    Hope this answers your question. I may remind you that I am a REAL newbie.

    <<You do have an up to date version of Nero 6 ultra with all the modules>>

    I will use the slide show as you suggested but that is to see the pics, not to save, from what it sounds. I may be wrong.

    To answer your question. I do not have Nero6 Untra. I have the one or COM. Its version 6.3.1

    Nero 6 ultra latest version is 6.6.0.8 ~~ You can download this on a Free trial for 30 days. !

    In it you will see what am talking about.. a pictorial that shows what can be done with the software.

    ******************************************

    Now if you are talking about STORING on discs your images just like if it was a hard drive ~~ that's feasible by either using a plain CD-R or a Cd-RW .

    The difference being that on a CD-RW you will be able to delete and replace any images at will. On a Cd-R you will be able to add to it.- ~providing you leave it open for later use ~ -.., but you will never delete.

    ************************

    An OEM version does not necessarily have all the module (programs) you may need , and it may have a Nero Express with restriction .

    I'm amazed. I stand in awe. I went to the SlideShow module from NeroExpress..did the obvious and wham bam I have the pics on a PocketCD. Thanks so much my friend.

    Curious though. I wonder why going the DATA route didn't work. I assume I can save data to a CD in the same manner.

    Now looking forward to learning what Manage does. Is this man excited!!?
