Hi again everyone, I still need help burning a DVD on my laptop, with the newest update TI 10 home, the burn stops about 5 minutes after starting giving me the error 00040003 (if my memory serves me) telling me the problem could be poor quality media.(but it could also be the air between my ears) . I have tried several name brands, and burners also. The same burner and media works perfectly on a desktop PC. I did get some good advise yesterday, about burning an image to an external hard drive. However I do need to put the backup (image of C drive) on a DVD just like a restore disk of yesteryear. This is precisely why I bought True Image. Someone must have solved this before. Please help Thank you in advance, .... jimmy BTW... I am a mear novice that can change out hardward, no A+ or anything like that.
