    Hi guys,
    I'm still fairly new to OSX and Mac's, and now that my Powerbook has some school papers loaded onto it ready for back to school, I need to start backing up my files. I have a Superdrive, so I figure having a DVD set aside for backing up files would be my best bet, since I might be able to get all school work I do over the next few years on one disc. Anyways, I'm just wondering how to copy my MS Office documents onto a DVD. Do I somehow move them to iDVD? I'm sure it's a relatively easy and common thing to do, but being new to OSX, I don't know. Please help!

    Thanks!

    Duff-Man says...DVD's can hold movies, but they can also hold data. Just as you may burn a data cd or an audio cd you can do the same with a superdrive....just make a data cd....you should be able to this with the built in burning capabilities in the finder....oh yeah!
