Can anyone recommend an easy way to burn photos on to a CD. I load photos in to my pics library (PC) and then I try to select the photos that I want and I end up with copies of my photos. What am I doing wrong?

I purchased Roxio Easy CD & DVD Burning. Now I just drag and drop the files into the Roxio icon on my desktop and BAM it is done. Since purchasing this software I have never had another argument with my computer over burning files to DVD. The money has saved me from many headaches that is for sure.

I'm not sure how different 7 is from Vista.

I do not put my pictures in the picture library. I prefer to put them in a folder on my desk top. Open the folder and click the "burn" button. It prompts to but a cd in. Close the cd door and it formats the disk then transfers the files in the folder to the disk.

i have windows 7. Right click on an individual photo, when it asks where you are copying to, go down to the list of options until you get to your CD drive and select that. You will know if you were successful when a little window pops up in the lower right of your screen saying "You have files to be written to CD" or something like that. Click on that when you are done selecting photos, and follow the steps to copy (burn) onto CD. That's how it works for me. You can click on multiple images at once and then follow the same procedure. Hope that helps.

I used Picasa ( a free google based program) and it works like a charm. I use the 'create gift cd' feature. I also use it to email, and to purchase pics from my local walgreens, or other quick processor.

Thanks I will try all the suggestions. I know that I must be making it harder that it is. I am so not a computer person.
