this may be a silly question, but here goes.....
Is Windows Media Player 11, suitable for writing photo files to a CD or DVD? I'm asking because I haven't done this before!
I have an external Seagate 500GB hard drive which I'm also using, but feel it would be a good idea to store my main images on CD or DVD?
Another question, how do I archive my raw files? Do I just leave them on the external hard drive?
I look forward to your replies. Be aware that all this stuff is new to me.

I would not use Media player for this, it is a video and music player.
Many versions of windows come with a built in Burner piece of software, Xp and vista should. Also you often get some form of burner software with a new drive.
I would suggest using something like Nero or Easy CD.
And I back up the same files to DVD as I do to a hard drive. RAW files go across OK.
I use an external hard drive but I also back-up onto cd's and dvd's. I backup everything, jpegs,raws,psd's etc.
thank you for your useful replies.
I believe I do have Nero on my PC. Just got to figure out how to use it!
Photo story 3 works well and is free.
Thank you Chris and Paul,
Chris, worry not. One day I would like to be able to create a DVD for showing images.
Lol you have a point there Chris
