    Hello, I have a problem with acronis true image 2009, vista, trekstore datastation g.u usb drive 1TB.

    I am able to create an image of my first drive by using acronis under vista and I store it on the usb-drive (NTFS or FAT32). But If I try to do this by using the bootcd, acronis tells me, that there is a problem. It can not write on the usb-drive, because of a writing error or a rights-problem!? Why can't acronis write on a usb drive using the bootcdo_O Please help.

    If you are not using the latest build of ATI 2009 which is build 9646, then its not surprising if you have a USB drive problem. Builds of ATI 2009 prior to build 9646 has a bug affecting USB drives.

    Press the ALT key to get the menu which will tell you which version you are using.

    So which build are you using?

    I got the newest Build from the support yesterday. Same problem.
    >>Failed to write to the sector 6,293,496 of the hard disk 1<<
    >> File ... cannot be created because of the logical drive is read-only. Please choose another drive<<
    It seems to be a driver problem using the Linux-boot CD.
    The boot CD seems to have a problem with the usb drive.
    Is there something I can do?

    Does the error come up immediately or does the backup run for a while first?

    Have you checked the drive in question for any errors (chkdsk /r)?

    Have you tried the quiet acpi=off noapic option detailed in Section II of the PLEASE READ BEFORE YOU POST thread?

    The error occurs emmidiately.
    I tried chkdsk /r -->no errors.
    I tried the switches.

    It seems to be a problem with the driver of the usb-drive (Trekstor Datastation u.g 1TB).
    I could also be a problem with the Computer. Dell Dimension E520. It seems to use a kind of raid controller. I don't understand it, because I dont have any RAID, but there is a RAID controller on board.

    Does the controller have a mode setting in the BIOS? If so, what is it set at?

    I know Dells can be rather skimpy on BIOS options, but some controllers will let you select RAID mode without having any RAID drives setup. Perhaps if the controller is in RAID mode and you can change it to IDE/SATA or AHCI, it will work properly.

    Note that if it's in RAID mode, Windows will probably be using the RAID drivers. Changing the mode of the controller may make Windows change the drivers or cause booting problems.
