I'm a complete dunce, I know

...but bear in mind that my previous home computer was bought in 1993, and only had a 3.5" disk station (which was state of the art in them dark days!).

Every time I logon, my computer (which will need to be named at some stage) tells me that it has found some WinXP updates for me to install, but warns me that I must first create a backup. My computer (see that it needs a name?) is issued with 2 optic -CD/-DVD/-RW stations. The manual, written in badly translated German, says all I need to do is place a disk in the station (does not specify which) and run the Windows Backup Wizard.

So I've gone out and bought a packet of CD-RW high speed disks. I open up one station and place a disk inside. I open up the wizard and it tells me G:\backup.bkf, which it comes up with of its own accord, is an invalid file name and destination. So I try it in the other station. Same result.

What's wrong? I don't know. These disks, do they need formatting first?

It's amazing how many accumulate, isn't it? At least if you are sacked, it's not for porn, but for pics of a man in a nice coat.

There's a difference?
