    Hello mdsmith

    Please have a quick read of this Acronis TI <Online FAQ>.

    In a nutshell, you can create an image on DVD using either of the following methods:

    1. Image direct to DVD using DVD+/-RW media. Ensure that your UDF packet writing software (Nero InCD) is running and that the DVD RW has been UDF formatted prior to creating the image. Leave TI to split the image automatically across several DVDs as per the TI FAQ.

    or (and possibly more reliable)

    2. Image to separate partition or second HD, choosing to split the image manually at a fixed size of 635MB. Use your Nero Burning ROM (not the InCD drag-and-drop facility) and burn a maximum of 7 .tib files per blank ISO 9660 DVD+/-R or RW. Do not split the image to a fixed size of 2GB as stated in the FAQ as you will receive an error message advising that the file size exceeds the ISO 9660 limit. See my post <here> for background to these recommended file sizes.

    Whichever method you choose to use, I recommend unloading all non essential applications from the taskbar in order to reduce the likelyhood of DVD write errors.
