I have Vista Home Edition and have always backed up files to DVD-RW disks. Recently when I try to do this the file appears on the DVD in pale form with a downward pointing arrow. When I open the file, the pics/documents seem also to appear in pale form under a heading saying "Files ready to be written to disk". Also when I next switch on my laptop I get a bubble box and an icon telling me that there are files ready to be written to disk and to click on the icon.The files I have previously tried to transfer are waiting there. I am not sure what is happening or how to handle these two situations, on the pc and on the disk.
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
