Hi.  I can tell you some suppliers, including Dell, will ship XP on a computer 
if that's what you want.  Certainly the 2GB of RAM now virtually standard, will 
be made better use of, though I know one of Vista's tricks is to utilize USB 
sticks for extra memory.

Can't help much with your second question, except to say to write to a CD in a 
writable drive it must of course be a CD/RW and must be formated or prepared to 
act like a floppy or writable drive.

  Hi all,

  I've got two queries, i hope someone's got the answers;

  First I'm about to get a new laptop.  Until now I've only used XP but 
apparently all new PC's and laptops have vista as standard.  I'm told vista 
isn't very user-friendly for jaws users.  Can anyone confirm or correct this?  
Can you use jaws on a computer with vista?

  Second I've hit a problem; i can play CD;s and DVD;s, i can read and copy 
files from CD's and DVD's, but i can't write to CD or DVD either via the send 
to submenu or by copy and paste, the drives don't even appear on the send to 
submenu.  I've put new CD and DVD writers on my computer.  Any ideas?

  Thanks in anticipation;
