This is one of my gripes about MS XP. it does not do what should be one of the basic jobs on a PC. It is still living with Win95 software. As it cannot backup to CDR or CDRW or DVDRW. The only way to use it, and you are limited by the size to a DVD size, copy to Hard drive then copy the file to a DVD
