One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.
There are several more benefits to being a registered user, but you'll have to join our little community to find out all the "secrets".

With the iTunes compression, 350 songs will take up about 1.3 Gigs of disk space.  That's about double the capacity of a CD, but less than a third of the capacity of a single layer DVD.  So, your computer told you the truth ... use a DVD if you want to copy the entire music folder at one time.

You might try breaking up the music and copy 150 songs at a time to a blank CD ... see if that will work.  If that works, then you've narrowed the problem down to burning a DVD.

I use CrashPlan - unlimited online backup of data for $50 per year.  Plus, you can use it with up to 5 computers.
