    I still use Roxio 5 Easy CD Creator - came free with both my Dell Workstation and Laptop.

    Uses the basic and original Adaptec engine copying software: in fact, Adaptec no longer sell their CD copying product as all proprietory rights have been sold to Roxio.

    Roxio software is a very robust and simple to use program.

    To back-up files to CD is a snap, as you can Drag 'N Drop in Explorer, when the disk is left open and continue to add files until the disk is full.

    Not sure about the price: seems fair.

    Brian, Easy Media Creator 7 will work for you (depending as all software of course upon the system and equipment installed). I currently use it and have had no problems. I do not believe that it has a "backup" feature. But you can copy and burn files/folders. I paid $69.95 so I think the price you quoted is about right. Of course there are a number of other products that will work for you also. As Paquadez mentioned, Windows XP should be able to burn to CD also. I have found that a lot of people have not be able to get the Drag n Drop feature in Windows XP to perform burns. The burn feature in Windows XP was licensed from Adaptec (Roxio purchased Adaptec) and if you removed the Adaptec Easy CD Creator software (as I did) then it usually took the Windows XP Drag N Drop ability away also. Nero's latest version (6.x Ultra I believe) should also work and it has a back up feature also. Make sure you get the right version.
