Default Send To


I have a DVD r/w drive and a CD r/w drive.

At present the Send To function only identifies DVD r/w Drive (E
I want to add CD r/w Drive (F

1. Went to the "Send To" folder, opened browser, selected CD r/w Drive (F and it came up with just F:/

2. Tried to rename it as as CD r/w (F but ":" is not allowed so called it CD Drive (F)

3. Then tried sending a file to to this new shortcut and it came up with "this is a read only CD" (which is not true as I can load normally from the DVD drive)

4. On further investigation it is suggested that the following registry keys (2) be changed from 1 to 2.

HKEY_CURRENT USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Current Version\Explorer\CD burning\Drives\Drive Type

But this did not change anything: I still cannot get the Sent To CD to work properly. Help!

I think I have partially solved my problem

My Computer"
Select either CD or DVD
Right click to properties
select "allow recording"
Send to selects one or the other
But cannot put both availble to chose from on the "Send to" pane
Or does someone know how. pleae?l
