    I was trying to make a backup of the entire system. using the backup utility in xp pro the wizard gets me to where i am to select a drive and the only drive showing is my G drive (memory stick) . It does not list my DVD or CD drives and if i browse it just asks me to put a memory stick in drive G. Is there a way to configure this to default to another drive? I originally had xp home and did the backup no problem and then installed xp pro and came across this problem. any ideas? thanks

    in case anyone is interested the answer is, i just needed to go 1 step futher and a box opens that allows you to select any drive. I just quit to soon on that one.
