Why can't I write Juno or Quicken to a cd?


I have a CD Writer. I am able to create CD's (photo's) use it for backup files (My documents, Word, Excel, etc) However, when I try to "backup" Quicken or Juno, I get a message

"unable to write to Drive D"

I've asked a question here before, never received an answer. Please answer this one. Thanks JB

To record any type of file (data, text, image) onto a CD-R blank disc, you need a computer, a CD-R, or CD-R/CD-RW recorder, and a special computer program referred to as authoring software When you purchase a CD-R recorder, either separately or as part of a computer system, authoring software is usually packaged with it This authoring software allows you to record digital data, audio, or images onto blank CD-R (or CD-RW) media Typically, authoring software comes with disc creation 'wizards' and onboard help menus to help you successfully record your digital files

One example of authoring software is Easy CD Creator To learn more about it, visit the Roxio site at

CD/CD-RW writer manufacturers and authoring software providers offer excellent resources via their online support where you can learn more about digital recording.
