hi, i just have get an external drive SONY DRX-710UL, 3 days ago. one of my goals is to make image copies of systems disks from few computers, and one is a notebook pc. that's why ii have taken an external drive (there s an usb an a firewire ports on this SONY) my problem : acronis true image can't work with a dvd ! in fact it works with cds but no with dvds ! and i have tested the drive with nero. no problem. but if i put a dvd+R, ATImage says this : E00070004 probably poor Failed to write data to the image archive a possible reason might be poor media quailty i have to say that before he invited me to put a cd but doesn't invite me to put a dvd in the message ! i have updated the firmware of the burner, nero too (last version) and this is the 8.0 version of Acronis True Image (evaluation) somebody knows what's going on please ? Do you know if Acronis True Image is able to work with dvds ? Perhaps i should give back the drive. or perhaps i m going to try fisrt with another kind of dvd+R. because i got the less price dvd ! i have tried with win 2000 system and with xp system. my mother board is an asus a7n8x deluxe i have 512 Mo of Ram if somebody can help me... thanks !
