    Friends,

    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.


    Frank.

    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.

    Strawman, franken,

    thank you for your useful replies.

    I believe I do have Nero on my PC. Just got to figure out how to use it!
