Program to regularly Burn Data to CD

I would like to regularly back-up several folders on my home computer's local and networked drives to a data DVD.  
Ideally I would like the PC to prompt me a specified intervals (probably monthly or quarterly, for a CD or DVD) in order that the PC might perform this backup for me.  How can I accomplish this?

Try SyncBack, which is freeware, or SyncBackSE, which is not free, but is not too expensive.  (I've been using the SE version for several months now, and it works fine.)  Either program is capable of backing up to a DVD.  Here's an FAQ on that: http://www.2brightsparks.com/help/index.php?action=kb&article=217   Also, either program can back up according to a schedule that you design.  Here's the FAQ on that: http://www.2brightsparks.com/help/index.php?action=kb&article=272

Good luck.
