|Most new computers do not come with a floppy drive they only have a CD or DVD, it would be of great value if we could backup to disk, its not always safe to copy to a hard drive as you would know if you have ever had one crash.|

|You already can do it, all you have to od is chosse where you want the backup file saved. I use several different forms of backup for security reasons, and it's all in where I tell it to go. |

|I must say I've never tried to backup directly to a CD but all you need to do is burn your backup file to one if you can't.|

|DVD Profiler doesn't support CD/DVD Burners, I just tried it and get a 'cannot create file' error. You have to put your backup somewhere on your hard disc and then burn it to a CD as lithurge said.|

|Actually, you need a CD packet writer installed on your PC. Windows XP doesn't come with one by default. This allows you to "drag-n-drop" (like a floppy) files onto a CD-ROM. The CD drive becomes one big floppy drive (also called 'drive letter access').|
In general, most programs will then allow you to write directly to the CD. Some programs may still refuse to write to the CD with a packet writer installed.
