Back up problems

  Dazza40 20:34 23 Jun 2005

Since I installed a Lexmark P3150 printer with card readers I seem to be unable to run the back up program. When I select the CRRW drive I get a message "Drive F:\is empty when there is a new CDRW in the drive. It appears to me that the card readers overwrite the CDRW drive?

PC is running oin XP. Any ideas?

What backup program are we talking about?

The standard XP back up utility

Try right-clicking onto the drive and select "properties".... Click onto the "Recording" tab and then make sure that the "Enable recording on this drive" tick-box is ticked and click OK

I may be wrong but I thought that the standard XP back up utility doesn't support direct backing up to CD, so it may not be anything to do with the printer or have I misunderstood the problem? Have you previously been able to do this?

I understood that to use the XP back up facility you had to back up to your HD and then burn the resulting .bkf file to CD.

I forgot about that... I don't think that Windows Backup can backup onto removeable media... well, execpt floppy disks
