Hi I have just had a custom built PC made for me and she is a Babe! But this is my first PC with a DVD drive. My Question is - Can I make backups on DVD as Data that's including Music & Photos, and in the event they are needed can I just slip in the DVD and reinstall everything from the data DVD. (I know i won't be able to play the stored music etc but thats ok. I would just like to know if I can store music & photos as data and reinstall from disc?

Thanks in advance,

Backing up on DVD is no different than backing up on CD, even music backed up on DVD can be played as normal. If you want to back up the system to DVD for simple reinstall then you should use software like Ghost or True Image to back it up with. But for day to day file, pic and document backup any burning software will do it.
