     I made this utility in order to make easy backup on CD/DVD of user specified files. In order to burn the backup files on CD, I’m using the “XPBurn” component, a little bit modified, to burn my files in the user chosen directory. The “XPBurn” component can be found in the following site: You do not have to downloaded, the code it’s included in the ZIP file. Because of the use of “imapi” component this application is only for Windows XP and Windows 2003. Code modified in order to support CD\DVD Volume Name (CD Name) thanks to Hannes. Watch out: Do not use Virtual Drives.

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
