Backup4all does not need third party drivers or other cd burning software or DVD burning software installed (like ActiveX, ASPI, etc) to be able to burn a CD or to burn a DVD. The application has a built-in CD, DVD, and Blu-ray burner to backup to CD, DVD or Blu-ray discs directly.
Backup to CD is really easy if you use Backup4all, you just have to set the backup destination to the CD burner drive and run the backup. Backup4all has its own features especially useful for backups to CDs.
Backup to DVD has become increasingly common due to mature technology and cheap DVD burners, this is why the backup to DVD method is so popular (and with the release of Blu-ray discs, which basically have the same physical dimensions as standard DVDs and CDs, backing up to DVD will become one of the most used backup methods).
