How can i make my Lite-on-SOHR-5238s CD-RW burner read and burn stuff on a DVD+R/DVD-R? Cause when i put it in my computer doesnt recognize it.

Hi Justin If it's a CD-RW burner then you can't burn any DVDs in it. You need to get a DVD burner instead - they are very cheap now.

most backup software can do this.

If you have about an hour to wait, you can use the shareware version of winrar to create a multi-volume .rar compressed file. You can set the target file size (in this case 700mb) and it will split it up automatically.

Note that when you restore the data in the future you would have to copy the data all into a single folder before restoring it.

Another option you have is to buy an aftermarket backup/archiving program. nearly every one except the free one with windows will let you burn to cd/dvd.

They will have the lightscribe logo on them if they are compatible. They need to have a special ink embedded on the lable side.
