OK, so this is a really dumb question about backing up to CD/DVD.
Having lost a whole load of irreplaceable photos when my old laptop went belly up, I'm really paranoid about security and backing up now.
Question 1) Although the CDs are RW, does this mean I can keep adding info to them over a period of time (like a floppy - miss them!) or can I only keep re-recording over the same lot of information?
Question 2) With a DVD-R is it possible to copy from multiple CDs onto 1 DVD?, or again, once 1 CD has been copied does that then prevent othed CDs from being copied onto the DVD?
Question 2a) Since my Laptop only has 1 DVD/CD drive, will I have to buy a second CD drive to read from while the DVD is being written to, or can this be done via the HD?
Although it probably won't take too long to creat 4Gb oh photos, I relly don't want to leave them lying around on my HD... just in case.
Sorry to ask suck a dumb newbie question
