ummmmmmmmm if you have a spare 650 gig CD you don't need....
I have a 6 month old Gateway 710. It came with backup/burn a cd/dvd software -- a light package called Nero 6 Express. I have a fairly large backup to do, one requiring at least three 650 gig cd's. When I tried to do the backup, I discovered that this version of the software doesn't let you "insert disk 2, disk 3," etc. One disk is all it will take, and I get a message that my cd is not large enough to take more than 650 gigs. I looked into this and found that Nero recommended I updatge to Nero 6 Ultra. ($60-$90)
I'm seeking advice on whether, since I have to buy new software, perhaps there is better software, both for backup and for burning cd's and dvd's. Perhaps separate utilities for the two different functions? Roxio Creator 7 is one package that will do both. Any suggestions or advice?
