How To Save Documents In CD Form

There are numerous ways that documents can be saved. You can save your documents on a diskette, on your hard disk, on a USB flash drive or on a CD. Saving your documents on these different devices and different mediums is pretty easy and can be done with very little trouble.

Things You Will Need

You will need to have a CD or DVD burner installed on your computer. You can't save documents on a CD unless your computer is capable of writing on a CD. You also need the CD or DVD that can be written on or saved on for this purpose. The CD you use can be in a writable or rewritable format. Writable CDs can only be used once and cannot be reused for other saving purposes. Rewritable CDs can be used multiple times where you can write and erase the contents on it over and over again.

How To Save On A CD Or DVD

Saving documents on a CD or a DVD is just as simple as saving on a diskette or on a USB flash drive. Here are the steps:

1. When you click on files you will then need to click on the phrase marked Save As or you can press Ctrl+Shift+S.

2. This will then have a window pop up with the options for saving you will need to save your files to your blank CD.

3. You will need to click on the area where you have to choose the location where you will need to save your files on. In this case, you will need to choose the CD or DVD option in the drop down selection.

4. Click on this and you will then be prompted to type in the file name and the type of document you will be saving.

5. Another way you can save files onto a CD is via the My Computer route. You can click on start then my Computer. From here, you can then open the folder that has your files in it.

6. You then open another window using the same steps, but this time you click on the CD-ROM icon. Place the files you want written on your CD under the files Ready to be Written to the CD heading.

7. Confirm this action by clicking on the write these files to CD phrase under the CD Writing Tasks heading.

You can save your files on other mediums as well, with CDs and DVDs as being only one of these choices. Just make sure that the files you will be saving don't exceed the memory that the CD you will be using has.
