    Hi all,
    Is it possible to create a guide for 'Dummies'? I am a newbie and have always used Norton Ghost before. After trying to use the latest version of Ghost, I gave up (just not worth the effort to troubleshoot for days on end).
    I had heard some great thinngs about TI and decided to give it a go.....
    Guess what, even more problems than Ghost!
    All I really want to do is burn a backup of my C drive(and my other drives as well) to some DVD+RW's. I have now ended up burning the backup jobs to another drive and will burn them via drop and drag (Nero), but why is it hot possible to do it direct?
    I have searched the forums and tried everything (new INCD tool, formating UDF style, etc) but nothing works.
    My first error is W000040011 insert the media marked “Volume 1”, when I hit retry nothing happens. Clicking cancel results in getting the next screen (the correct one) with the proceed button!
    Then I either get an error message 'Disk is full', with the poor media thing (I am using Verbatim DVD+RW, so thats BS) and/or the 'error writing to the file'.
    This disks have been formated according via Nero INCD and are EMPTY!
    I am more than a little frustrated and am hoping some wise soul can help out.
    My system specs are:
    Win XP Pro SP2 (all the updates) system restore turned off for all drives
    P4 3.0
    1 Gig ram
    Asus P4C800 MB (bios 1016)
    2 Maxtor SATA hard disks Promise 2+0 stripe
    TI 9 build 2302 (latest)
    Thanks in advance,
    Bobsen

    That's one of the weak points of TI - trying to write directly to a DVD. It works for some and not for others. Save your sanity - continue to write the image to the hd first then burn it to dvd. I wouldn't even recommend the drag and drop method where you have to first prepare the media for packet writing. Just use Nero to burn standard data files to the dvd - it will treat your .tib files as such.

    Thanks for the feedback, I was hoping there was one of those 'just click on the red button' solutions but who knows maybe in the next build.....
    Regards,
