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.

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.

This notebook uses the Intel HD Graphics with 128MB of dedicated graphics memory and support for Microsoft DirectX 10.1. It should be able to play Sims 3 without issue, though some games may not run on high detail settings.
