I have a new Dell with a CD-RW drive(D), a combo CD-RW/DVD-RW (E), and a 3.5
inch floppy (A).
My question is why when I use the "send to" command to save files am I only
given the A and D drives to select from. no E as either CD or DVD.

Generalized answer. I have read them sites previously and do not remember
them addressing THIS question.

Microsoft Windows XP gives you the option to enable CD recording for only
one device at a time. As such, my guess is that the "Enable CD recording
on this drive" check box is selected for your "CD-RW drive(D)" drive.

If you enable the CD Writing Feature for your "combo CD-RW/DVD-RW (E)"
device, the Send To target should automatically change to reflect the
selection.

[Or at least that is what happend when I just tested your scenerio on my
computer of similar configuration. That is, I enabled the CD Writing
Feature for my CD-RW drive. And WinXP automagically: deselected the "Enable
CD recording on this drive" check box on my combo DVD/CD-RW Device, and
changed the Send To target to reflect my selection.]

To enable or disable the CD Writing Feature run Windows Explorer,
right-click the device and click Properties. Then click tab labled
Recording.

Earlier I had gone thru them and checked both as enabled for recording
thinking I would then be presented with a choice when I attempted to "save
to". Mine worked exactly as you stated.
Thank you Carrie.
