I spent a half an hour searching the forum for info. on this before posting. Maybe I'm not a good searcher. After booting from the v10 rescue CD and choosing the "Full" option, I discovered this on two different systems: a desktop and a laptop: On both systems, choosing the Recovery operation, all optical drives appeared as you would expect. I can restore from any of my optical drives. On both systems, choosing the Backup operation, no optical drives are shown even though there are two different burners in the desktop and one, again different brand, in the laptop. Booting into the "Safe" option, no optical drives appear in either system whether or not Recovering or Backing up. Booting from the v9 b2337 rescue CD and choosing "Full" option, all optical drives are available in Recovery or Backup (of course, only the burners show in Backup). Burners: Laptop CD-RW: TEAC CD-W28E 8x8x24 (Laptop is an IBM ThinkPad T23, undocked) Desktop CD-RW: ASUS Model CRW-5232A3 Desktop DVD-RW: NEC ND-3500A Desktop MB: ASUS P4C800-E DELUXE. Latest BIOS 1023. Looks like burning directly to CD-R or DVD-R isn't possible for me with v10 Rescue CD on two of my systems. Got another one to try it on.
