    Hi,

    I am struggling with some of the same issues that others have posted about; but, I haven't seen answers that make sense.

    I recently purchased True Image 8. I upgraded to the most current build (771). (Although I am confused why that build wasn't current when I downloaded True Image this weekend.)

    I have formatted DVD+Rs with Roxio Drag-to-Disc as recommended on the Acronis website. There doesn't appear to be a problem; however, when I get part way through the archive process, I recieve an error message stating: E00070004: Failed to write date to the image archive file. A possible reason may be poor quality media." I receive this message when the process is anywhere between 20% and 40% complete.

    I have tried two different types of DVD+Rs. I have tried this process almost a dozen times with the same results.

    Are there specific parameters that should be used with Drag-to-Disc when formatting the DVDs? (If so, what are they?)

    I have done two image archives to different hard drives with no problem on either. I copied the 650 MB files from the hard drive to DVDs using Roxio with no errors. I would think that this process would somewhat validate the DVD media, and the DVD burner.

    Any thoughts?

    Jeff

    I'm having the same problem. I wonder if its an incompatiblity between true image and roxio's latest drag to disk?

    If you search this Forum you'll find Roxio Drag-to-Disk has given more people problems than you can shake a stick at. The general consensus is that you're far better off using Nero InCD.
