    I'm afraid you can't. You'll need to create a new image using either of the following methods:

    1. Image direct to UDF formatted DVD+/-RW, leaving TI to split the image automatically across several DVDs as per the TI FAQ or User's Guide. Unload all non essential apps from the taskbar before commencing and burn at a slower write speed to minimise chance of errors.

    or (and possibly more reliable)

    2. Image to separate partition or second HD, choosing to split the image manually at a fixed size of 635MB. Use your normal DVD burning software (not UDF packet writing) and burn a maximum of 7 .tib files per blank ISO 9660 DVD+/-R or RW.

    I'm not sure I understand the question. I'm not aware of ANY program out there that can take your existing 26GB image, split it into correct size parts and burn them direct to DVD.

    As I indicated in my previous reply, TI can burn a new image to DVD+/-RW provided the disks are UDF formatted and your packet writing software is installed (which it will be if you've UDF formatted the DVDRWs).

    Regards

    UDF = Universal Disk Format. In order to use packet writing software (drag-and-drop capability) such as Nero InCD, the CD+/-RW or DVD+/-RW needs to be UDF formated by your packet writing program.

    TI = An abbreviation for True Image (sometimes written as ATI -Acronis True Image).

    Re: dvds maded but still have problems

    Hello dreamer12,

    Thank you for using Acronis True Image (http://www.acronis.com/products/trueimage/).

    Please note that Acronis True Image doesn't support DVD-R format and does support DVD+R, DVD-RW and DVD+RW formats.

    Also you don't need to reinstall Windows in order to restore the image you have created. You should boot your computer from Acronis rescue media (CD or a set of diskettes), run the "Restore Image" wizard and follow the instructions.

    If there appears error when booting from Acronis rescue media please contact support@acronis.com.

    Thank you.
