    Is it possible to back up to DVDR, because it seems only to want to back up to cdr?

    Thanks

    Thanks,
    I was a little concerned because it only gave option for 3-1/2 or X # of cdr's
    I will try DVDRW < I was hoping to do it with lesser costing media.

    I am trying to back my entire drive and the DVDrw did not work, in fact my drive supports DVD+R DVD-R DVDrw and DVDR dual layer, I have tried all these formats and the prog still wants to use 24 cdr's. Any ideas?

    Thanks

    disregard the previous posts>
    After reading some of the stories and problems about using this software on this site, I think I will pass>

    Acronis: Please delete my user info and serial#, I need a software pkg that use new technology(DVD) support and less beta testing by users.

    Thanks anyway

    Hi X,

    It's simple to use DVD+RW or DVD-RW disks. All you have to do is format them first with your packet writing software. For Roxio Easy CD Creator use Drag-to-Disc and with Nero use InCD. Other software packages have their own packet writing that allows formatting a drive so that you could drag a file to it in Windows Explorer.[/QUOTE]

    Thanks, JMK
    That is why it wont work for me. With other things I do with video on my machine, I cannot use packet writing. But that explains why it wont reconize the dvd issue. I have resolved it anyway by using Nero and backed_up to 4 dvd's.

    Thanks again,
    XtremeX
