    Hey guys, is there a way to set the default drive when you want to burn a backup of your library to a disc/DVD? Right now it keeps wanting to use my cd/rw drive, and I really don't feel like using 10 discs for a backup when I can fit it onto two DVDs. I've done it before, but for some reason now itunes doesn't want to see or find that drive (Although windows sees it just fine).
    Is there a way to change what drive to use? I have looked under every heading I can think of, figured it would be under "preferences" but nope..Help please!:confused:

    You have to right click your dvd drive's properties then set it as your primary burner.

    Windows will only allow one primary burner as default.
