Having read about the image corruption problem on this forum it seems that the solution remains as elusive as ever. Many people have absolutely no problem with TI and are very happy with it. Others just can't use it due to consistant image corruption. As you may have seen elsewhere I have moved a hard disk between two computers with dramatically different results - a DELL 4600 with 2.8GHz P4 has no problem whilst a self assembled computer with ASUS A7V133 with AMD Athlon 900 (1200MHz) just will not create images without corruption. There has been speculation about the corruption problem being due to various factors such as image size or external disk drive chipsets. Let me speculate about the motherboard and processor. Do you have an ASUS motherboard and/or an AMD processor? If so, please comment about your image creation success or failure. If not, do you also have a consistant corruption problem? Maybe your comments, with details of motherboard and processor, will help shed more light on the problem.
