    To burn to DVD you need to follow the instructions in FAQ#27 plus search for some helpful hints from Menorcaman which I linked to in apost yesterday (a search for DVD will bring it up).

    I can't seem to find FAQ#27. Sounds like a fairly simple thing to do. I click on FAQ and then search but I get no responses. Could you post a link to FAQ#27? Thanks.

    Regards

    To burn to DVD or CD media, you have to format the media for packet writing. However, that method of saving images is the MOST problematic of all the options available. Also you should upgrade to the latest build of version 9, which is build 3567. And you will probably need more than one dvd disc to save your image, which adds another facet for TI to stumble on.

    Research carefully before going ahead with saving to dvd media, unless it is the 2-step method.

    Hi wawadave,

    You will probably find what you are looking for in this previous thread titled <Fails to see DVD Drive>, especially the embeded links contained in my reply at Post #8 therein. Note that there is typo in one of the links, in that the highest UDF file system that TI can recognise at the moment is UDF 2.01 not UDF 2.1 (there is no such thing as UDF 2.1).

    Regards
