Decay modes of the charmed mesons, D0 and D+, are studied in e+e- annihilation data at 4.03 and 4.41 GeV c.m. energy. The products of cross section times branching ratio are measured for the K-π+, K-π+π+π-, KSπ+π- and K-π+π+ final states. Upper limits are established for the Cabibbo forbidden decays via π+π-, K+K-, K+K- π+, K+π+π- and π+π-π+. The K-π+π+π- final state is shown to be dominated by K-π+ρ0.
