    Has anyone experienced the problem that a CD-R medium can not be written to create a BOOTABLE Rescue Media after updating to the V8.0937 build ?

    Strangely enough a CD-RW is written correctly by V8.0937 and is also bootable in some hardware DVD dual layer drives, but also not every manufacturer type. That is why I wanted to create a CD-R bootable media and found that my IDE CD writer (which worked perfectly for the build V8.0826) just does not write the image when using the "Create Bootable Resucue Media" application of V8.0937.

    Help...!

    One workaround would be to simply make a copy of the working bootable CD-RW using your burning software to a CD-R.

    No problem here with build 937 creating a CD-R boot CD.
    Try another blank CD-R. Used or formatted CD-R disks won't work.

    Hello Frank Greiner,

    Thank you for choosing Acronis True Image.

    Please accept our apologies for the delay with the response.

    We recommend you to update third party CD writing software if any to the latest version available for free on its respective web site. If this does not help, please try the following workaround.

    - Eject any disc from the burner prior to starting the program;
    - Proceed until the program asks for a disc;
    - Insert a disc and then click the OK button to close the tray automatically.

    Please also try to create the bootable CD in safe mode.

    If he above workaround will not help, please contact our technical support team and they will provide you with a solution as soon as possible.

    Thank you.

    Not being able to read all brands/types of media is usually a sign of outdated drive firmware. Check your manufacturer to see if there is a current version available.
