I am having a lot of trouble backing up my files.

  1. I am having a lot of trouble backing up my files such as digital pictures, word docs, etc. I need to do this before I start go through the cleaning process and possible reformat. I am using an external DVD burner since the tray on my PC's CD drive is broken. I am putting the files on DVD +R and the process goes fine except when I eject the disc and try on another PC the files are not there. What am I doing wrong?

    I`m not sure what the answer to that is. Therefore I have moved the last couple of posts in this thread, to a new thread entitled "I am having a lot of trouble backing up my files." in our Storage and networking forum.

    how are you backing up the files?
    what program are you using?

    some backup utilities lock into certain hardware, and hides it for some security reasons.
