    I have read the instructions & followed them on how to burn to DVD.

    If I run a backup it burns fine to CD. If I install a DVD it runs thru the paces & says that it completed successfully but the DVD is BLANK. I have tried 4.7/8.5/+r/-r & even some RW's. No diff. Sometimes I get an error saying the disc needs to be formatted & when I hit the format button it can't access teh drive cause it's busy?

    Pls help I need the xtra capacit of the dvd's.

    Hello Selkov,

    Are you using the "direct" method or the alternative "two-step" method? If it's the direct method and you are using InCD as the third-party packet writer then you can only use DVD+/-RW disks. Also, under the InCD format "Options", ensure you tick the "Enable the advanced format options" checkbox, after which you can then click the "Advanced" button. Under the "Advanced format options", make sure the UDF file system you select for preformatting the DVDs is no higher than UDF 2.1 (I use the UDF 1.5 (recommended) setting).

    You say you have read the instructions but have you seen the additional advice in Posts #3 and #5 of this previous thread titled <Why can't I burn my backup to DVD+R?>.

    Regards

    I am trying to use the direct method.

    But I can not get any of them to work.
