backing up files

  kane_2001 13:40 02 Dec 2003

Im formatting my PC and have managed to backup all my documents etc that I wish to save but I have over 5Gb of music stored on my PC. What`s the best way to burn these to disk ( Im using Nero 5 ). Ive tried dragging the folders but they are obviously too big . Is there a way of doing this without using loads of blank discs that will be wasted for example a different format to change them to? PLEASE HELP

If they're at present in the form of MP3 files then burning them to CDR as Data will take approx 7-8 blank discs.

Alternatively,you could use Partition Magic or similar to create a partition into which the music files could be moved whilst you format and reinstall on the rest of the HDD.
