Your version of Nero is well out of date. It may be that it doesn't fully recognise the DVD writer/disc you are trying to use.

Personally, I would never entrust a backup to a DVD.

Its updated to the latest on nero site,and its not a system backup just some apps and stuff i doloaded and wont to save.

Regarding it not being a system backup, I wouldn't trust even a shopping list to be safely backed up on a CD or DVD.

Use the DVD (UDF) format to write 2 GB or larger files to DVD. The standard data DVD format is DVD (ISO) and the ISO standard does not allow any file over 2 GB in size to be written to DVD.

Ok, using UDF worked ok got 3.5 odd gig copied,just 1 thing tho when it started to burn it said somthing about might not be able to read a mutlisession or the second session on anything less then xp,would this mean i wouldnt be able to use the disc on 98se machine?
