**On Edit** (Solved?) - how to burn Adobe Cloud file to CD R? - (calling "Dude Lebowski"?)

New to Adobe subscription, Support was off for the weekend, works M-F 24 hrs, fine, so waited. Previous issues of how-to make changes have been sort of resolved (Saved to Cloud) now ready to Burn to disc.

I was expecting superior tech knowledge from Adobe, so was surprised when the tech said he had no idea how to burn a disc, had done it sometime long ago. He took Remote and was able to copy the file to the desktop (the Cloud version with changes is still there tyvm) for me to drag it to wherever the Burning happens. He said 3-4 times that he didn't know how to burn. I asked who I was supposed to ask. He said, "Microsoft."

So went to Windows Media Player and found a window about burning to Drive E (but called DVD). The message said "files ready to be burned" and listed the Cloud name, nothing saying to PROCEED with the burning.

*******Did a Search in Windows and got a forum for something like this but didn't solve it. ******Funny part, there was one answer from "Dude Lebowski" ------is this our DUer who posts here and has helped me a couple of times?!1

Anyway. As far as I know, my changes are safely in the Adobe Cloud. So, how do I burn to the E drive and why is it called DVD instead of CD, and when I was in that window it said it was an audio file (not a documents file). As usual, thanks. Maybe LEBOWSKI will fix things.

**********ON EDIT: o.k., the burning seems to have worked - via "Manage/Tools" in the Ready-to-burn window.

1. LOL ...

I gotcha.

You probably actually have a DVD- rom drive, computers haven't had a straight CD-Rom drive in them for a LONG time. It's fine a DVD burner will also burn CD's.

I'm assuming you have a reasonably new Windows version, yeah?

1) Pop a totally blank disc into your drive and close the door
2) You'll get a window pop up asking what you want to do with discs, choose the 'Add Files' option.
3) You should get a window asking how you want to use the disc, like a USB drive or with a cd/dvd player. For this experiment, choose the 'with a cd/dvd player'. this finalizes the disc after you write to it and maximizes the number of other devices that can read from the disc. Then click 'Next'.
4) You'll then get a window saying 'drag and drop files to this folder'. Hopefully you know how to get to this cloud storage spot within the windows file environment. If you DON'T, then go into Acrobat and save that file LOCALLY, like on your desktop.
5) Drag and drop your file into the appropriate area for the burning mechanism. If you lose that window, you should be able to get back to it by selecting the DVD drive (probably D: ) in the windows file menu.
6) Once it's in that list (ignore the popup if you get one after dragging in the file) you can right-click in that window and choose 'Burn To Disc'.
7) The windows burning software will take you thru some stuff, just use default values.

2. Yea, most of those steps look familiar. Big question now, are you the "Dude Lebowski" in Windows?

In the Windows Community (old post).

Anyway, some of those steps I stumbled through on my own up to the problem dragging to the burn window that didn't seem to drag from the Cloud.

As I said, the Adobe tech only did the putting the file on the desktop. After mucking around back in Media Player, tried the "Manage/Tools" option and there was a "Finish Burning" option and that's what seemed to work.

Thanks. So, are you the one in the Windows Community????!1

3. Doesn't ring a bell, but ... maybe?

Glad you got it sorted.

4. I hope this is part of a larger Adobe subscription...

...for other of their programs you need, because there are other tools for creating and using PDFs that don’t require a subscription — in fact, you may even find what you need for free.

I have the Adobe photographer’s subscription (Photoshop/Lightroom) because I need it for work and it’s only $10/month, but they really should be making their software available as one-time purchases; having to pay every month for life or lose access to your previous work is one of the worst “features” of modern capitalism.

5. Paid a year in advance. Using it to archive all of my stuff.

It's a one time thing, 3000 pages, got them all to disc and shredded the paper. I'm 74 and putting things in order. Have finished the lifetime past papers.

If I scribble more this year or more, a year at a time will be worth it.
