Let's get past this fast.
While it's well covered, discussed to death in the quicken forums the fix is to backup to somewhere on the hard disk then burn that to CDR or copy to some USB memory key. I will not duplicate web content about the trouble of backup from Quicken directly to CDR/W.
Still Need Help, Have Other Questions
I've read over the Quicken forum and want to make sure I understand what I need to do. It sounds like to me that I should do 1 or 2 of the following:
1)Back up to hard drive then copy to CDRW
2)Back up to USB flash drive then copy to CDRW
If that is correct then I want to know the names of some programs that I can download for free to format the CDRW's. It sounded like to me that you have to format CDRW which I didn't know.
Please let me know if I am missing anything else I would need to do.

Move forward? I know many want a longer document about this but since it's been done so often I took the short version.
Question wasn't answered
I did ask a question. What are the names of some free download programs that will format a cd-rw? Once I know this I think I should be good to go.
CDBURNERXP should be fine
If your machine came with a CDRW drive...
It usually comes with recording software.
Treat the RW disk like a ...
regular CD-R disk. That allows you to make a disk that casn be read on almost every machine with a CD reader while formatting and using packet writing software requires any other machi9ne to have the same packet writing software (and incidently allows data to "disappear").
If you are just looking for the name of some backup software I'll suggest Acronis True Image.
For reasons no one will reveal...
Quicken fails to backup to INCD or Roxio's DirectCD drives. This is why I just move forward fast.
Possibly too fast Bob as ...
s/he still seemed fixated on using packet writing (thus my mention to treat it lik a regular CD-R and avoid packet writing.
Acronis does back up Quicken files if one chooses to pay for the product rather than use what is already available as you explained how the backup could be done.
Quicken and packet writing...
Has some thousands of posts about failure. To save ourselves the grief I headed for the nearest exit.
