Yesterday the german Acronis Support told me that imaging to DVD from within the boot rescue environment is NOT officially supported, it "can work sporadic". I had luck with TI 91 home Build 3694 and an elder SONY DRX 510 external burner. Another drive, a brand new HP 840u won't work. Now, with TI 10.0 our SONY Drive doesn't work anymore. It isn't seen on the workplace window. If you press ALT-F11 at the rescue CD Bootscreen you can change the Linux kernel parameters. If you delete the default parameter "quiet" you'll see all the linux boot messages. At the end you'll get a linux prompt (#). There you can scroll up and down with shift-PgUp/shuift PgDown to read the messages . If your DVD is not working, you can find messages like <6>hub.c: new USB device 00:1f.4-1, assigned address 2 <3>usb.c: USB device not accepting new address=2 (error=-110) <6>hub.c: new USB device 00:1f.4-1, assigned address 3 <3>usb.c: USB device not accepting new address=3 (error=-110) If you ask google for "usb.c: USB device not accepting new address=2" you can find a lot of theads with this subject. It seems that there is a timing problem between the linux kernel and the USB 2.0 Port. Some people have reported there can be a chance if you press ALT-F11, then delete the "quiet", let Linux boot and start Acronis at the prompt with the command "product". So far, I had no luck with that. I tried TI10 with two Drives (Sony, HP) on 5 different PCs (HP Kayak, Compaq Deskpro, and a noname). I asked the german Acronis support for a "whitelist" of working DVD-Drives, but they wouldn't tell me at least one name. Perhaps we can build such a list here? If somebody was able to image directly to a external DVD (within the boot rescue environment, not windows!) please post your environment, especial your Drive Type here. Thank you all, regards from switzerland.
