When I try and burn my back up data on to CD/DVD each time I out the cd or dvd in it says please enter a blank dvd or cd. The CD/DVD that I have tried to use are brand new and sealed so I cant understand this. Can anyone help?

Right click on your CD drive choose Properties/Recording Tab, and make sure the box Enable recording on this drive is ticked.

Which backup system are you using?

My back up is acer

I'm sorry I can't help, I know nothing of Acer. If you are running XP, have you tried it's own built in Backup System. It is available i both XP Pro and Home but it isn't obvious in Home and is not installed by default.
