    I've installed True Image 8 and wold like to be able to use my external dvd+rw drive (HP dvd writer)_ for creating bootable recovery cd's (or dvd's). Unfortunately, the drive does not show up as an option. I've u8nistalled and reinstalled, but to no avail.

    In addition, I've tried to use my other (internal) CD burner, but have been getting error messges indicating problems burig t that drive as well. i am running Windows XP SP2l; and have Roxio's Easy media Creator versiojn 7 with drag to disk running.

    Any thoughts would be helpful.

    I am suffering the same problem. Win XP SP2 Using ULead on a Pioneer DVR-107BKSW DVR -/+ R/RW. Cannot write image to DVD R/W DVD R or CD. Very frustrating after laying down the hard earned.

    Sent details to support but am not holding my breath.

    I´m having problems with TI on a internal dvdrw, it works with cds but when I try to burn directly to a dvd+rw it fails.

    From windows, can you drag and drop files onto your DVD drive?
    If no, then Acronis TrueImage will not be able to write directly to DVD either.

    Either way, the perferred method is to image your HD first, and then author a standard DVD. (Rather than mess with the packet writing stuff required for direct-to-DVD burning)
