I understand that you want burn more than one CD or DVD but unable to do so and have to restart the computer.
It may happen due to the age of the computer or CCD/DVD ROM. When you burn CD/DVD the lens on it become hot, so sometimes it may become unstable and need a restart. It also depend upon the setting of the software also, as it might have set it restart mode after the CD is burned. In this case, I would recommend you to check the setting of the burning software for an option which says "Restart after burning is completed".
Personally i wouldn't save your text files to CD/DVD unless you catalogue them properly. they can also take up quite a lot of space.
A CD will hold up to 700MB of data to it. A DVD will hold up to 4.5GB which is a hell of a lot of information especially if you just save text documents.
You can use Windows Media center to burn a data CD/DVD which is probably the easiest way to burn a data disk.
Alternatively you could get an external hard drive to save your file to. This would save plenty of money when it comes to writable media like CD's and DVD's and would also cut out the problem of burning a disk.
The plus side to an external hard drive is that none of the data is stored on the computer hard drive itself and it is usable on other computers in case you don't have access to your own computer.
There are a lot of different solutions to this question, but the easiest in my opinion is a program called "DVDFab". It will let you either rip a DVD to your computer's hard drive or another DVD. I would also recommend getting a media player called "VLC Player". It will allow you to watch the DVD files (.vob) If you have any issues, the support forums on DVDFab's website is incredible.
the cd-dvd drives will only work if you have a good non-microsoft burning program. Your computer came with such programs--one or two. find out by installing a freeware program called Belarc advisor. It will show you all hardware and software with ids and version numbers. You didn't mention if your computer was an Acer. If it is, you have a copy of all the software saved on the hard drive. or did you purchase the DVD drive separately? if Acer, you can find and reinstall your original program using Acer eRecovery
Management. (You can read about your Acer by clicking on "All Programs"
and then on "AcerSystem", where you will find your manual, where you
will find the following info: The eRecovery allows you to
backup/restore the factory default image, and reinstall any
applications and drivers. (In this instance you want to reinstall your
CD-DVD burning programs). You just need to select the Burn Disc button,
then select the application you want to burn to the disc--in this case,
you CD-DVD buring program you identified with Belarc, burn it, then
reinstall it. (You might want to burn all the applications the computer
came with, just to have them for backup). That should get you going
again. Let me know if you run into any problems.
