    Hello lanker,

    Thank you for choosing Acronis Disk Backup Software.

    Unfortunately, we are no longer able to provide technical support to customers who are using Acronis True Image 7.0 because we have released a new version and do not develop the old one anymore.

    However, you may try 15 days trial version of Acronis True Image 8.0 and see if you are able to create the image to DVD.

    If you decide to keep Acronis True Image 8.0 after the trial period, we recommend you to purchase upgrade.

    Please also note that the current version of Acronis True Image does not write to DVD disсs directly, instead it utilizes third party UDF packet DVD writing software. We may recommend you to install a UDF packet DVD writing software such as Ahead InCD or Roxio DirectCD, format DVD disсs by means of this software and then use formatted disсs with Acronis True Image.

    Please also follow the next link to get more information about writing on DVD: http://www.acronis.com/products/trueimage/faq.html#20.

    Please note that a possible workaround is to create image archives on local or network hard drives specifying the image archive split size and burn them to DVDs later.

    Thank you.
