Backing up to CD with 98SE

  lester1 00:17 22 Jul 2003

Trying to back up I keep getting the message "The media is write protected" Any help out there?

The only help I can give I'm afraid is that whenever I do a backup to CD-RW the disc has to be formatted in UDF. Trying to backup to an unformatted disc wont work for me. Make sure your Disc is formatted. Cheers. :-)

If you are XP it will not let you Format, You have to disable XP burn software and use NERO InCD or DirectCD part CD Creator software

it will let you format a CD-RW disc

just pop the disc in and open the explorer view of the Disc, if there is allready media/data on the disc then just click on the left hand side the link that says "Erase this CD-RW"

If the above doesn't help please give mo info. What type of CD are you using? CDR or CDRW? What software do you use to burn with?
