Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Copy to a blank CD

\015 I have a Dell Dimension E520. I am not able to copy to a blank CD in "CD Drive D." I hightlight a document, then I click "Copy to", then "CD Drive D," then "copy." What comes up next is a dialog box that says, "D:/is not accessible, incorrect function."What's my problem? Incidently, I am able to copy onto the "stick" that I plug into a USB port.
