Backup to CD-RW nightmares

Anyone else having  CD-RW backup nightmares?  I am trying to use BackupMyPC to write my data.  Keep getting these "cannot write the required backup fornat to the media" errors, even with different media. Then , the next time I use the same media, it write it fine, usually after formatting.  Then I go back and try to read it and it says the media does not contain a valid backup set.  Also,  I lost my catalog due to a virus recently.  Now, none of the CD's I backed up to are recognized by BackupMyPC, because there is no catalog.  I can use these same CD's to drag and drop data with  Cd createor 6, no problems.

I am ready to go back to tape and trash the BackupMyPC software. !  Anyone have suggestions?
