PLEASE SUPPLY RELEVANT INFORMATION:
Operating System Version: XP
Problem Application Name & Version: XP Pro
Problem Hardware Make & Model:
Error Messages:E:\backup.bdf could not be used



When I attempt to back up my files to my R/W CD wich is E drive I get the above message. It will allow me to go to A drive, but I would need a gross of floppies to do that. I even reduced the quantity to be backed up and get the same message. My CD is a black R/W.

Hi,

You need to use a packet writting type application, like Roxio's DirectCD, to format the cdr(w) to be written to from Windows Explorer or other apps.

What software are you using to burn CDs?

Hi,

Oh ya! I forgot WinXP has cdr capabilities built-in!

Is the "IMAPI CD-Burning COM Service" service started?

Hello,

Yes IMAPI is started. I use the drive to save other things, documents, photos, but the backup wizzard doesn't. The rest of the message is 'please insure it is a valid path'.
