    I decided to trial TI. I have a LiteOn 8x burn and was looking forward to using blank 4g dvds to back image a simple ide 60g drive with 14g used space. I tried a Maxell and a memorex dvd with no luck (coaster). These things ain't cheap. Below is the error I get after about 2 min into the process. Sorry I couldn't get pic to u/l. It said failed to write data to image archive. Help please.

    Hi, BG

    Did you click Manage Attachments when you tried to send the Image.

    Hi, BG

    Ti will can not write [create] an Image direct to a DVD.

    It is best to create an Image on a Partition of which you are not trying to Image [to 2HDD] using the highest compression.

    Then Reboot. [just for safety]

    Do you have Nero Burning Software [best IMHO]? [or some other]

    Please also have read this thread:- Recipe for imaging to DVD+RW?
    All so this bit:- #23

    Hope this is of some help.
    Take Care,

    Thanks ... I will try this. To bad the program leads you to believe it will burn to a dvd.

    Hi, BG

    I think you must have read it wrong or misunderstood something, scroll down to How can I use Acronis True Image 7.0 to write the images directly to DVD disks?:- Acronis FAQ

    But I would advise not to using it, UDF as it is more trouble then it worth.

    Take Care,
