I am new to this forum and to Acronis (1 day). I have made an image of my "C" drive, partition 1 and saved it on an external Maxtor One Touch drive. It verified using the check feature in TI8. No problems that I am aware of. I tried to burn a new image directly to a DVD -R. After going through the process, TI8 reported that it had successfully created the image (4 DVD's). However, when I tried to have TI8 check it, it showed the DVD to be blank. Windows explorer also reports it blank. I verified that I am using the latest build of TI8. I have read many posts here this morning on this subject, and thought it wise to ask this question of this knowledgeable group. Many thanks for any assistance/suggestions you may offer.
