[QUOTE=sstandley;2456886]I’m trying to do a system backup to a DVD+RW disc on my laptop using a Sony DVD+RW DW-Q58A
I’m running Windows XP. I am using the system backup facility and attempting to save to dvd. The DVD drive changes to CD drive when I insert the blank DVD disc.
I’m getting the following message…
The back up file could not be used "D:/backup.bkf"
Please ensure it is a valid path, and that you have sufficient access
The drivers are up to date.
Can anyone shed any light on what’s going on?
So is that the default save name?? What blank media are you using? Also it’s not advise to use RW but R media for storage. Is that burner the laptop burner or addon burner?? Can you be more clear as to what you mean system backup? Are you making a system recovery cd or backing up data files?
