I tried making one without the USB drive and there was no reaction from the computer, like it was waiting for the USB. If there's a way to do it with DVDs there should be some instruction for it.

answer 2
you need to have a minimum 32gig usb drive, or sd card. I expect you can back files up on dvd's as well as there is a burner.Also, I saw standalone backup storage drives in-store that stated they could be used as well.

It depends on the quality of the music and the size of your pictures. But you can get a lot of mp3s and jpgs in 320gb. A lot!

answer 2
Absolutely. Music doesn't take up a lot of space and neither do pictures. Movies can take up space after a while. I usually go ahead and delete them after I watch them or burn them to a dvd. My old desktop had a 250gb hard drive and usually had three or four movies on it and my wife had over 10,000 pictures before I got a new hard drive.

On your desktop, there is an icon that says "Help?", double click it, and then 2 choices appear: Identity Card & User's Guide. Open the User Guide and there you go! If you want to put a copy in a place you prefer, then just save a copy once you open it.
