Hi I am trying to do a backup of my PC but whenever I try and save to a CD then the Dialog window informs me that I must first format the disc;no matter what I do it is not able to complete the format. I don't know what I am doing wrong? Can someone help please? Thanks

Please tell us what you are trying to backup. Is it the whole pc including op system settings or just some data ( word files, music, photos etc..) Also how are you backing up ? What program or method are you using ?A CD will only contain approx 640Mb of data so not enough for the whole system.

Thank you for the reply, I am having a problem here;trying to do a system image back-up and realize now that the disc won't hold enough data.Then I bought a USB (16GB)but when I tried to do the backup it says that I ca'nt because the drive is not NTFS?? I think I'm lost.
