Missing Copy to CD Link in My Pictures

Burning data or music to CDs is now a normal part of most people's computing tasks and almost everyone has a CD burner installed in their computer. Windows XP has a built in burning capability allowing you to create your own CDs without having to by any third party software. Although it's pretty basic, it usually works fine for most people.

If you use Windows XP to copy your images to a CD from the My Pictures folder then you may use the Copy to CD link under Picture Tasks.

If for some reason the Copy to CD option has disappeared its pretty easy to get it back. Here is how you do it:

Check to see if the CD-RW or DVD-RW is functioning properly in Device Manager.

If so then make sure your CD-RW is enabled for CD recording

1. Open My Computer
2. Right click on the CD-RW drive and click on Properties
3. Click on the Recording tab
4. In the Desktop CD Recording section, make sure the Enable CD recording on this drive is checked.
