backing up Photos

Hi Guys, I know this is probably a really easy question, but I am looking to put all my photos on a DVD disc as I have about 4500 pictures and also my music as I want all my files backed up as I would like to re install, so can I put photos on a DVD disc??

Yes quite easily, raggy 2. How many you get onto a DVD depends on the file size of the pictures.

With that many files of music and photo's,i would say get an External drive.Going to be quicker...and can be used again to store those backups,not to mention a system backup if you wish so.

I should have said: Create a "Data DVD" using your installed burning softaware. If you don't have any burning software other than Windows' built-in application, you could use the excellent and free CDBurnerXP, which also allows you to burn DVDs. click here

What sort of files are they you are trying to burn? Are you trying to burn them as DATA?

Are you trying to burn as a Data DVD, raggy 2?
