    There is nothing in there about my issue. This is the second time I look through these articles. This is why I posted my question. Thank you anyway.

    It helps if you at least let us know what you have done so we don't end up being redundant. For example, did you create a Burn Folder? Did the error occur when you tried to place the file in the Burn Folder? Are you trying to write one file at a time directly to the CD? We are not mind readers. We don't know what you are doing.

    Okay, I open iPhoto then I put in a CD-R into the slot. It opens on my MacBook. I then click on a photo and drag it to the CD icon. I burn this one photo. Everything works. It is burned. Then I repeat my previous actions, but this time I get the message stated in my original question.

    That will not work. Once you burn anything to the CD it is closed. No more data may be written to it. What you need to do is to create a Burn Folder on your Desktop - Click on the Desktop then press COMMAND-SHIFT-N to create an untitled folder on the Desktop. Instead of dragging your images to a CD drag them into the new folder. Watch carefully how much data is in the folder since a CD only holds a maximum of under 700 MBs. Just select the folder. Press COMMAND-I to open the Get Info window. The size of the folder should be displayed in the upper panel. Ideally keep the total amount to few MBs to allow space for the disc's directory.

     

    Once you have the images that you will burn in the folder put in your fresh CD, open the Burn Folder, select all the files (COMMAND-A) and drag the entire selection to the CD's Desktop image.
