Error when using win2k server backup to write to DVD+RW disk

I've got a DVD/RW drive in my server.  Nero is the installed software, plus InCD for UDF/packet writing.

The disk is formatted using InCD, and I can copy files to it using explorer.

I want to create NT backup jobs that will write to this disk, but every time I try it (logged in as ADMIN...) I get an error:

E: is not a valid drive, or you do not have access.

Any thoughts?

I have to say I don't know how NTbackup handles it's backups, but you should give it a try, I assume it can format the drive into the filesystem NTbackup wants it to be.

Too bad...

Yet, you can try making a backup to disk and then copying the backupfile to a DVD.
