Is there a program with which i can backup large amounts of data (eg 100GB) to CD-Rs?

This is just a one time thing, after that, all backups will be incremental.

The Programm should be
 * easy to use,
 * have the option to compress or not compress the data on the CD-Rs,
 * write the CD-Rs on its own,
 * manage the numbering
 * have a complete filessystem on the CD-Rs, so you can just copy one file
 * option to split large files (>700MB) into pieces
 * handle large amount of files

....

Tape solutions are NOT applicable!!

No, there isnt such a program. There are plenty of programs that will do what you wish, but NONE that includes a CD-r Application. www.freshmeat.net has them all.

Impossible. DO you realize what is required to write a CD-r program. That is why ALL programs uses cdrecord as their backend.
