Try uninstalling DLA completely, then reinstall it and update to the new version.
Have you changed brands of discs recently?
Please post back and let me know if you need more help.
Hi Osprey, Thanks for the prompt reply, I am still using the same box of discs (don't use many)that I previously had no problem using and regards your suggestion about sonic, I came installed with the computer but I wasn't supplied with a software disc. I wouldn't even mind purchasing some other software but I am unsure exactly where my problem lies, could it even be the burner?. Regards, Coco
Latest update, tried to copy a file onto a CD/r disc (not a rw this time), it held the file in the computers memory but a pop up informed me same message I couldn't have access to e:\ CD drive (see my administrator for access. I got feed up switched computer off, logged in a couple of hours later, got a small icon at the bottom of the screen asking if I wanted to burn the file to disc, said yes this time it worked!. But when I load a CD/rw the screen says same old no access to folder E: message. This is weird. Regards again Coco
Yes, all files on any CD, regardless of the method used, are read-only. DLA cannot delete files on the disc, but it can ignore them. A simple workaround is to use a version number in the file name.
Let me suggest some strategies for keeping your files.
If you are simply looking for a way to make your files portable, then a flash drive is a much faster and more convenient solution than a CD. A $10 flash drive can hold far more files than a CD.
If you need a way to archive files permanently, then CD-R or DVD±R media is preferred over any RW media (better long term stability).
