"Restore files" fails on disk selection

I am using Vista Home Premium 64 Sp 1 on HP s3500f.

I used DVD-RW to backup using Backup and Restore Center.

When I wanted to restore a couple of files, I could only get so far.

Here's what's happening...

1 - I used "Advanced Restore"; ... "Files from an Older Backup"

2 - "Show backups older than 30 days"

3 - I then select backup on Disk 1 from 12/12/08; Add files I want to
restore, in the original location - Then Start Restore

4 - Restore Progress halts with error box (no error code)
"The disk in the drive is not the requested disk.
"Please insert the disk with the following label ... Disk 5"

Of course Disk 1 is where I found the files and from whence I listed them to
restore. Substituting Disk 5 gives the same message.

I am sure it is something dumb I am doing, but I am stumped.
