I am trying to backup to a cd-rw. When I am asked to enter a backup file
name, I entered D:\BACKUP.bkf
I then get a message "The backup file name could not be used. Please ensure
it is avalid path, and that you have sufficient access.

What am I doing wrong?

Joel,

NTBackup cannot not write directly to CDs. You need to save the file to the
hard drive and then burn the .bkf to a CD.
