Peter,

I jumped on the CD-R band wagon about a year ago and have been very happy
with this data storage medium.  The recommendation for me at the time  was
to use a program called Adaptec Toast.  This program came with the CD-R
writer that I bought (the brand name of my drive is Smart and Friendly and
it cost about $350.00 US).  It has worked flawlessly since I bought it.  I
just drag the files to back up into a window in the Adaptec Toast program
and say write CD and it does everything else by itself.

My CD writer is connected to an 8600 PPC.  The data must first be copied
onto the hard drive since the CD writer needs data at a constant rate and
for me only the hard drive is fast enough.

Hope this helps and good luck.
