I just made a Windows Vista backup CD, but when I go to write the files to the CD, it is way too big to fit on a CD-RW. Is there anyway I can get them all to fit? I know a DVD would hold it, but it will only accept CD's with the write wizard. Let me know if anyone knows how to do this.

What make and model of computer do you have? Some computers have a "switch" that will change the drive from CD to DVD (my Toshiba is that kind). If this is similar, go to My Computer, right click on the CD drive, and select Properties. There should be a Recording tab in the Window that opens and in that tab should be a check box to enable/disable the CD/DVD (or switch between them). On my Toshiba you have to disable the CD recording function in order to get the DVD function to work.

Sounds like there's a problem with the hard drive (IMO). I'd suggest downloading a bootable utility from the manufacturer of your hard drive and testing the drive for problems.
