I tried to use Microsoft Backupu utility in order to save my data to a DVD-RW drive. It doesn't allow me to use the media and states to look at the path or access. The computer is brand new and I am using new CD-R media. Can anyone help me with this problem? Any other good backup utilities that you suggest?

No, I just bought this laptop from Dell and it did not come with any software. I have found out that u cannot backup any data to a cd or dvd. U can only back it up unto another disk drive.
