Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64-Bit

Welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

What sort of error did you get? What exactly were you backing up. Were you using your computer during the backup?

In all honesty, you're far better to use an external hard drive rather than DVDs for backup purposes.

Have a look at the video in this link: Backup and Restore - Windows 7 features - Microsoft Windows

...and these links. Be sure to see the related links at the bottom of the tutorials.

Yes a cheap external (USB) HDD is really the way to go - faster(!!!) and more reliable.
Even though CD/DVDs are physical media, your rewriter only needs to go out of alignment enough not to read one disk and you've got problems.
