    I bought TrueImage 9.0. Have a USB backup disk, etc.; the backup seems to work, all this is no problem.

    But I've tried to create a bootable CD and each time I get a message, "Error Writing CD". But the bootable CD contains the following files:

    Directory of E:\Recovery Manager

    04/08/2006 08:32 PM <DIR> .
    04/08/2006 08:32 PM <DIR> ..
    04/08/2006 08:32 PM 1,795,580 bootmenu.exe
    04/08/2006 08:32 PM 22,528 bootwiz.sys
    04/08/2006 08:32 PM 198 f11.cfg
    04/08/2006 08:32 PM 664,755 kernel.dat
    04/08/2006 08:32 PM 4,850 mouse.com
    04/08/2006 08:32 PM 10,060,109 ramdisk.dat
    04/08/2006 08:32 PM 25,303 splash.run
    7 File(s) 12,573,323 bytes

    Anyone have an idea what the problem is?

    Thanks.

    Did you try booting with it?

    Mine has 7 files, 12,580,864 so maybe one of the files is not complete or it could be a different build number.

    u could try a different brand of media or maybe shutdown all background processes before burning it.

    I'm going to get more media and try your suggestions.


    Thanks.

    Hi Ron,

    If the problem persists, install TrueImage on another computer that has a CD writer and make the Recovery CD there. The Recovery CD is not machine dependent, so it can be made anywere.

    Of course, to comply with the Acronis license, uninstall TI from the second machine after you have made the CD.

    First, I have only one computer. It seems like a huge effort to uninstall TI, install it somewhere else, make a backup, uninstall, reinstall, etc.

    (And if the image is not machine dependent, why not include it with the distribution or have a downloadable image on the web siteo_Oo_O??)

    Hello Ron,

    Some more well known workarounds in this <previous Acronis Support reply>. As far as recommendation #4 in the reply is concerned, Roxio's Drag-to-Disk UDF packet writer is a known killer.

    Regards
