    Backup to CD/DVD fails

    Hi All,

    I have MythBuntu 12.04.1 and Linux 3.2.0-38.

    Going to Applications>System>Mythbuntu Control Centre>Backup and Restore> Getting Started>Backup>Backup Now>Directory: offers the choice of BU destination.
    When destination "Other..." is selected the directory of the cd/dvd "UDF Volume" is selected as the Storage Location.
    The "Yes backup the database?" is checked then "Next", "Apply", "Apply" are clicked. The progress dialog shows progress and eventually terminates back in the initial tab.
    It appears as if a BU to CD/DVD has occurred.

    But the CD/DVD has no BU files!

    How do I BU to removable media for off site storage?

    Thanks for your help.
    Glen

    Are you using a CD-R or a CD-RW?

    Hi,
    Yes I am using a CD labeled "CD Recordable" and it works on Win?

    Files like *.txt and *.jpg are written and can be deleted on win 7, but are not visible on the mythbuntu machine.
