Windows 7: Looking for "chain burning" software?

Looking for "chain burning" software?

Problem: I've got an enormous folder totally filled with lots of small files, and I want to back it all up to DVDs. It will take about 60.

If I want to do it now, I have to manually add files through Nero/whatever, remember where I left off, etc, time-consuming and could easily mess up.

What I want is a program that will let me say "Hey you, burn C:\Backups\", to which the program replies "k, insert Disc 1", burns as much as it can fit on, then says "Insert Disc 2", etc etc, until it's all done, hassle-free.

I haven't been able to find anything like this on Google, but it's such a simple idea that SOMEONE must have done it by now. So can anyone help me out by suggesting a program?

Why not try a backup program?

The one I use is GFI the home version is totally free and has the sort of options you want.

I installed that program, but the DVD option is greyed out and unavailable, even with a blank DVD in the drive.

Supposedly you can do this using a free trial version of Corel Digital Studio 2010 here is the link Digital Studio 2010 | Digital Studio 2010 It comes up in a search on goggle under burn large files in a chain. Haven't tried it myself but it's a free trial.
