Backing up my computer
Don't get your knickers in a knot; it solves nothing and makes you walk funny.

I have a new external HD but can't for the life of me work out how to save stuff to cd because it always comes up with some bs about formatting my disc and then spits the cd back at me - It is currently in the 'too hard' basket until I can get a friend to come over and help me.

Yes, very good advice. I use rewritable DVDs as a third backup.

If you use rewritable CDs or DVDs they do need to be formatted first.

In the case of DVDs, this is generally done by using Nero or similar, depending on what software was bundled with your DVD drive.
If you are using rewritable CDs, Windows can do the job for you. Just insert the disc and a window should pop up, asking what you want to do.
