hi, wonder if someone has had this experience. after a fresh OS install, i wanted to create a restore dvd disc using Drive Image 2002 (DM2K) or Acronis True Image 7 (TI7).
DM2K will reboot and do the actual imaging and burning outside of windows.
TI7 however will image the harddisk and burn without having to reboot, ie it does its job within windows.
both apps failed to burn successfully. DM2K would fail to close media properly, resulting in coaster. TI7 3 attempts all fail at the 4% mark and it says “probably due to bad media” error msg.
i’ve tried TDK 4x DVD+RW and 8x DVD+R, all fail.
burning other stuffs however there have been NO problems so far, using the bundled Nero Express (which i’ve upgraded to 184.108.40.206) or Alcohol 120%.
benQ firmware is U7 (the latest as at 11-mar i believe)
i’m on winXP Pro with SP2
i also have daemon-tools and patin-couffin driver installed, not sure if this is the culprit. … and other bread & butter apps like winzip, acrobar reader, ACDsee, diskkeeper, AVG antivirus, Spybot S&D, Adaware, etc… which i think are harmless.
first time using winXP SP2 and first time have this problem with both DM2K & TI7, so i wonder if it’s SP2.
i can ofcoz… image my HD to another partition and burn that image file separately using Nero. it’s not so a problem about making my backup, but want to solve this burn fail mystery when burn directly from DM2K/TI7.
anyone can shed some lights… much appreciated.
thanks in advance.
