Question about Dell Latitude C610 Notebook
It's usually called writing or copying to a disc, rather than downloading, and the simple instructions are here. But that may not be what you're asking.
It would take a lot of discs to back everything up. Dvds will be more compact, but you need to choose what you're going to save. The windows files will be found on your windows installation cds, or you can create your own updated windows recovery disc according to instructions specific to your OS. (see here & here for xp)
You can use a backup utility like Cobian if you're wanting to save the data to be able to restore it back in the future, or simply have a security copy. (See here or here. ) That will save application data, but you will probably have to reinstall applications and programs, so make sure you have access to the installers.
Some utilities like Acronis True Image or Norton Ghost make an image of the entire hard drive that can be saved to disk or usb drive. Instructions for how to do so are specific to the program you use.
If you're reformatting the computer's hard drive in order to do a clean installation of windows, this article may be of interest to you. Also here and here.

You can either go to the file you want, righ click, and send to disk
Or go to control panel, maintenance and find the "back up your Hard Drive" option and set disc drive as the drive to back up your files on. It may take a few disc to do this.
