Default backup disc

can someone give me a step by step to creating a backup dvd (preferably) or cd for my computer.
i am trying to backup my documents and settings.
it copies fine into my documents, but when i try to move it to the disc it will not let me.
what am i doing wrong?

start>programs>accessories>system tools>backup
click next until it asks you where you want to store it and put it on your desktop, then let it run and copy that file to cd.
