Windows Vista
Dell Inspiron 1545

I am trying to restore using two CD's I made in backup and restore center - one was a continuation of the other.
I have the disc in the drive, and I click 'restore files'
It tells me the disk containing the backup is unavailable. I do not see an option to change where the computer looks for the backup.

Viewing the files on disc one did not give me anything usable.

Googling has showed me several different ways to backup, but very little about how to restore (aside from 'click the button and follow the instructions'.)

Any advice?

how are you trying to use them?, try rebooting with the disk in the tray see if it boots to the disk.
if it don't you may have to reset in bios to boot from cd/dvd 1st... http://techpaul.wordpress.com/2007/08/03/how-to-boot-from-a-cd/
reset when done..

good luck

I was going into the backup and restore center, clicking the button that says 'restore', and not having any luck.
As it turns out, this post wound up being moot. I've upgraded to 7 and am now having a whole other list of headaches. :)
Thanks for the help anyway, I'm off to try to get help with this new problem.
