The same thing happened to me. I never got it to work as it should. I used Win 7 and got it done in a few minutes with no problems at all. Give that a try.

I meant Windows 7. But whatever version of Windows you are using will have built in backup and recovery options. It will make a recovery disc with the hassels of Dell Data Safe Local. The discs serve the same function.

I am having the same problem. After inserting the DVD-R as instructed nothing happens. The symbol just keeps spinning showing no indication that a process has begun. Can anyone out there help with this? thanks, JB
