    :mad:I had a thread on this before w/no helpful responses. Thought I'd try again. My computer w/VISTA is set up to backup files on Sunday night. For some reason, this can't be done because the computer apparently can't tell there is a formatted disk in the disk drive. I have tried 3 different never-used-before disks. I formatted them even tho my computer also doesn't automatically give me formatting options. I can burn photos, documents to disks but the backup doesn't work.

    Since I seem to be the only person who accesses this site who has this problem, the thread might as well be closed.

    If after 24 hours you don't get a response, you are allowed to post a response saying "BUMP" to put your thread on a list where it will be seen more easily.

    Sorry I don't have a helpful answer to your problem, but with that advice, someone who does may be able to help sooner.

    Is your desktop on at that time and if not, do you have it set in the bios to come on for that event?
    What program are you using to schedule the backup?
