I have belatedly read some previous threads about using TI (v10) to write an image to more than 1 dvd, and like many others I have ended up with a pile of bird scarers, having got fed up with constantly re-inserting 1 disk after the other. I even got my image down to 4,575gb, thinking it would fit onto a 4.7gb dvd, but I have read it needs to be more like 4.3gb. I've also read about the 2 step method of backing up an image in smaller chunks, but as I really wanted TI to burn directly onto one disk and add copies of itself in case I ever needed the whole kaboodle (I should say that I have 2 hard-drives, so this will be my defence if major things go wrong, which they did once before - a fire!). I also don't yet have nero loaded as I took it off to reduce the image size. So out I went and bought 5 very expensive double layer 8.5gb DVD+Rs. But at my 1st attempt TI treated it like a 4.7gb dvd and ejected it before it could hav ebeen full and asked for another dvd. In frustration I aborted the backup and it will soon be another bird scarer. In explorer it says its full up, at about 4.7gb. But now I am wondering, did it just want me to push it in again so that it could write to the 2nd layer? I think TI is supposed to accept 7.5gb dvds, do I have to tell TI that I am using a larger dvd? My pc is a Dell, which I bought about 8 months ago (yes, after a fire trashed the last one), so it should have a dvd writer that copes with a double layer. Shouldn't it?? Before I add even more to the dvd mountain, can anyone tell me if I'm doing something wrong? Many thanks inhope and anticipation.
