DVD burning for backups on Windows XP

I had to recreate Synop’s DVD backup burning capabilities today. After some searching and digging around I’m using:

Here’s a quick sample backup script that we use:

del "E:\backup\burning\FridayA.iso"
del "E:\backup\burning\FridayB.iso"
"C:\Program Files\cdrtools\mkisofs.exe" -v -J -R E:\backup\burning\FridayA\ > E:\backup\burning\FridayA.iso
"C:\Program Files\cdrtools\mkisofs.exe" -v -J -R E:\Backup\burning\FridayB\ > E:\backup\burning\FridayB.iso
"C:\Program Files\Windows Resource Kits\Tools\dvdburn.exe" D: e:\backup\burning\FridayA.iso
"C:\Program Files\Windows Resource Kits\Tools\dvdburn.exe" H: e:\backup\burning\FridayB.iso
"C:\Program Files\cdrtools\open_cd.exe" d
"C:\Program Files\cdrtools\open_cd.exe" h
