When I run Acronis TrueImage 6.0 I get the following error when I specify where I want the image saving. I've got a blank CD-R in drive D waiting. Any ideas? TR

Sorry, should read 'above error'. TR

It mite not work, If you are trying to save it from DOS as Dos needs CD-ROM Driver support. if you have another partition I would suggest you save it there at a size that will fit on a CD

No, I don't have another partition. My system has 13.2Gb of free space and my image is 2.65Gb, could I put it on the C drive temporary, then copy it to cd-r through Nero, then delete the temp. image on the C drive? TR

try better quality cdrs.any drive not ready or disc write errors i have had before,and that includes acronis TI,have been because of poor quality discs.

I normally use ASDA cheapies, but for this I bought TDK which were twice as expensive. Wondering if it's because it wants updating to the latest version 349, I'm on the cd version 335. Downloading it now, will report back if it resolves the problem. TR

No, didn't resolve it, I've also sent an e-mail to Acronis technical support. Don't know how long it'll take them to respond. Have now tried 3 different type of disks but still the same, I take it that TDK are a decent make? TR

Acronis support didn't come back to me and I'd be surprised if they answer tomorrow so can anyone suggest a cure? TR
