    In the past I have used CD writer on my friends, desktop/ laptop and if I needed to write some file on CD, I just used to do copy and paste and after that write these files to CD.

    Recently I bought my own laptop and I noticed that I can't do copy and paste on my laptop, it will not except this command.( May be I have disabled some running services). Each time I will have to open Record Now( my CD burning software) and only through it, I can write any file to CD. Another problem is that after I have written even a small file on CD by Record Now, I can't write anyother file alongside the previous file. Although the previous file is small but my disk will appear all occupied. Is this a software issue or hardware? I mean I need to upgrade my CD room or CD burning software?
    I will be thankful for the help.

    I thought copy/paste was only possible with packet writing, like DirectCD (Roxio) and InCD (Nero).

    Make sure the burner has CD recording enabled. Right click on the drive then properties-record-enable recording for this drive. See if that`ll work for ya.
