Hi, I'm not sure I'm in the right place but I couldn't figure out where else to go...
I need to burn an attachment from my mail containing an image to a cd and don't know how.
Could someone help me, please? Thanks in advance.

    Hi Charla,

    1. Start by saving the attachment to (perhaps) your desktop. I don't use Mail, but I suppose you save the attachment by clicking on it, and the File>Save. Or perhaps you can just drag the attachment from Mail to your desktop.

    2. Insert a blank CD-R into your computer. A window will come up giving you the option to name the CD (you can if you want). Leave the "Action" as Open finder.

    3. A finder window will open, and you will see the CD in the left-hand column. Drag your attachment from the desktop to the CD icon and drop it on the CD icon.

    4. Click on the CD Icon and you should get a window asking you if you want to burn the CD. Click "burn", and it should burn.

    Hope this helps.

    Hi, Bob. I figured it out myself but it's really nice to have someone tune in with a bit of help.
    Thanks for responding.
