I just downloaded True Image 8.0, and my first attempt to create an image has run into the E00640068 ... Error #1722 problem. I've reviewed the existing threads, and can't see a suggestion that would apply to my particular situation. I'm running on a 5-year old Compaq Presario (256Mby, 1 GHz, Win98SE). I wanted to write to my newish Optowrite DVD+-RW DD1601 drive, which reads and writes both CDs and DVDs. I have Nero, including InCD4 v. 22.214.171.124. I have successfully backed up data (a few GBy) to a Fujifilm DVD-RW. I don't know whether or not Fujifilm formats their blanks, or in what way. I assume that by the time Nero is through with a DVD it must be formatted, though. I get the dread error 1722 both with a DVD-RW I have used, and with one fresh out of the box. My True Image is 8.0 trial version, which claims to be fully operational though with a 15-day life, which began yesterday. My build is 796, which the Acronis site says is the latest, so I guess updating isn't my problem. I notice that some suggested cures involve activating some kind of scheduler, but I see no such files in the Common Files/Acronis directory structure, so wonder if these suggested cures are for WinXP rather than my Win98SE. I would go the Acronis support route, but note that that is reserved for users who have paid, something I don't intend to do unless I can find that True Image will work on my machine. A small side note: in preparing to make the image, before the 1722 error, True Image estimated its usage in terms of CDs, although the disk I had in the drive was a DVD. Is this relevant? Sorry to be wordy, but I wanted to forestall being directed to the threads and links I've seen recommended so far to some other users. Thanks for any suggestions.
