What operating system? If you are backing up to optical media (CD/DVD) what brand and burning program are you using? Have you made any software/hardware changes recently? Download CCleaner, http://www.piriform.com/, and run the registry cleaner, it might help.

What kind of different media did you try?

Could be anything, from malfunctioning hardware to some sort of computer virus. Make sure you check and control every application and Windows is updated.

By the way, stop using ALL CAPITALS… Around the internet it is considered very rude and also looks like you are shouting constantly. No need for the sms-jive-language as well.

[QUOTE=ladyobx;2541690]as far as this jive thing I have no clue what that means.[/QUOTE]He’s talking about SMS acronyms/abbreviations like [I]E-1, b4[/I], which not everyone is familiar with :wink:
First thing to start with is the question you haven’t answered yet: what kind of media/brand have you used ?
Also, what kind of burner/model do you have (you can e.g. look in the Device Manager, DVD/CD-ROM drives) ?

tyvm means thank you very much. I understand that. Language and abbreviations evolve constantly.

But, at least to me, it seems you don’t even put any effort in the conversation. That saddens me and might lead to a different kind of help that you might have asked for. It also might trigger another emotion inside you, making you angry, thinking i’m an old fart that should stop lecturing people about how they write stuff.

Perhaps you were busy, perhaps stressed, perhaps having the best cup of tea in your life when you typed tyvm, but text does not show that emotion. It only shows four lazy letters …tyvm…

Get over yourself. Not everyone is as perfect as your not. I sure don’t want any advice from you if you can’t keep up with simple computer abbreviations or take them personally. :rolleyes:

All right, now that we’ve got the pleasantries over with, lets see if we can help with the actual problem.

Try Whappo’s suggestion of the registry cleaner. Then give us a clue as to which disks and burner you are using and the speed at which you are trying to burn.
