Hi,

I have two questions.

1) I am wanting to burn movies to a CD-R. I know this is known as a VCD. I usually burn movies to a DVD but would like to learn to burn them to a CD. Is there much difference in quality and can I (once burnt) play them on a DVD player?

2) I am wanting to back up my laptop to cd. Is this possible? How?

Thanks in advance.

What's the source of the movies?

As far as backing the laptop up to CD, the best option is something like Acronis True Image. It'll make an image backup on a set of CD's that will restore a completely bootable image if necessary. It's available for $30 downloaded purchase from www.newegg.com, search on Acronis.
