I'm new to TI, and picked the product because it looks like it can back-up just about anything on a hard disk. I just got a new eMachine T3092, comes with a NEC ND-2500 DVD RW drive. I want to backup the HD image before I go thru the initial XP boot, installation, and configuration. Thought the TI bootable diskettes would let me do it. No such luck! Tried the demo, and it looked good. Paid for the real thing, downloaded, installed on my old T21 running WIN2000, made the bootable floppys, started up the new eMachines, floppys load fine. I tell TI to backup the HD, put the image on the DVD, it sez, 'ok', thinks for a bit, opens the DVD burner, I put a brand new maxell DVD-R in, and the following message comes up: E00040004: Disk is Full. A possible reason may be poor media quality. Please press Retry to continue with Volume 1 or press Cancel to ..... I read the fine print in the doc, and it sounds like TI doesn't really handle DVD burning very well. So, what are my options? 1) Would still like to make a DVD, but I'm thinking I will never find DVD burner type software that will work off a boot disk, Acronis', Microsoft's, or anybody's boot disk. 2) Does TI have the same kinds of problems burning CDs? or can the Acronis boot disk software handle it? If I image the HD to 4 CDs (Acronis' calculation), can I put them all together later (such that I will be able to 'Explore Images')? 3) If I thru an old HD in the new eMachine as a 2nd drive, can I put an image on it? The old drive would be a lot samller than the new one (20Gb vs 160Gb), but it is way bigger than the size of the image Acronis calculates (a little over 2Gb)? Can I later copy this to a DVD? Help ... I need a fast tutorial on the tricks. Oh, I've upgraded to build 771.
