    I realised i have 40gb of music on my external HD that is not backed up at all and well really should be

    what im looking for a is an application/method of telling the computer i want the ''music'' folder to be backed up onto dvds, so it would like copy as much as poss to the first dvd, and simply keep telling me when to insert the next one as it backs up all the data

    any easy way to do this rather than dividing it all up myself?

    You could try Carbon Copy Cloner! Cause with that you can specify what you want added, and you can make it different image sizes

    Roxio Toast 7 has disc spanning built-in. I love the feature. It can also break up single multi-GB files across DVDs as well as spanning multiple files.

    If you are looking for free, try SilverKeeper. It won't burn DVDs but if you are backing up to an external HD, then it's great and automated.

    I beleive only the latest version (7) of toast is able to do this. Is that the version you are using?

    If you have Toast 7 it's pretty easy...

    drag/drop your files into the Mac only format
    click red record button
    insert blank after blank when prompted
