    I'm going to accept the advice of one of the contributors to this forum who splits his image files into 1492 MB chunks and burns up to three .tib files per DVD-ROM (ISO).

    But I'm rather uncertain about the settings offered by my burning software (Sonic DigitalMedia) - and I'd better get it right when burning my system images!

    - TAO closed or DAO closed?
    - I guess Mode 1 is ok?
    - *ISO + Joliet* or *ISO + Joliet + UDF* or *ISO Level 2*?

    Best aplication to burn Images to CD/DVD is ImageBurn. It's also freeware!

    Any way use
    - DAO (disc at once) closed (Multisession CD/DVD can provoce problems)
    - Mode1 (2048 byte)
    - Iso + Joilet (doesn't realy matter in case of iso burning)

    Tommy, so grateful for the info! Thanks for advising to get ImgBurn - I've just installed it. There are an awful lot of settings in there, I hope I'm picking the right ones for my system images!

    Acronis produces image files with the ending tib?
    If so, of course you get this error message, because IMHO tib it is _not_ an image file in the common sence as *.iso, *.img, etc. So forget everything i told before.

    In this case just burn the file as a comon data file with your standart burning program (DAO Closed - no Multisession) to the CD/DVD.

    I use Nero 6009 and it has never failed to write an image to DVD from TI9 with nero's default settings.

    Good choise, but i think you can't burn it in this case in the sence of a common img file. If you do the files which are inside the image file will be burned extractet to th CD/DVD.
    I think a restore with Acronis won't work than, because it needs the unextracted Image file, no?

    It works just fine everytime. I have restored with the images burned direct to DVD with nero and it always works.

    Yes, thats what i ment. You burn it as a data file not as an image file in the comon sence.

    Thank you Tommy for clarifying this. I've just asked Sony DigitalMedia to burn the .tib files to DVD with the setting you said and TI has validated them. So I should be allright :D

    ImageBurn will turn out to be useful in other circumstances, I'm sure. Yes, I wish I had Nero but it's a question of budget, you know? mine isn't that plentiful at the moment. Sony DigitalMedia is anything but sophisticated but it seems to be doing its job and came free with my Dell.

    Cheers all!
