hi there - i have recently been experimenting at work with TI Corporate Workstation 8 build 1158 and used it on a couple of different systems there. one has a usb2 addon card the other has usb2 built into the motherboard. I have tried booting up using the rescue cd TI makes and it works fine for creating an image of a 40gb hdd of which only 1.5gb are used to a secondary internal drive, or to a network resource. But when i use the usb drive, it sees the contents of the drive. as soon as i actually try to create the image however, it gives an error - "completed with errors" immediately. I have tried using the usb addon card, as well as the usb 1.1 ports on both systems as well as different usb cables. no go - 5seconds into the backup it gives that error. even formatted the usb drive just in case - it is a 40gb seagate fat32 filesystem. the hdd being image is also a 40gb fat32 drive. i cannot understand how it can see the contents of the usb drive but not write to it.
