I am having trouble using Norton Ghost to back my HD up before I upgrade to a newer and faster model. I have a M6805, and I have an external DVD burner hooked up to it VIA USB 2.0. Problem is that the ghosting process gets to about 5-7% and then stops. IS there a way to do this that I am just missing. I want this done on DVD so that I don't have about 15 CD's with my backup data on it. Please someone throw me a bone on this one.


Thanks.

What version of Ghost?

As far as I know, Ghost 2003 only allows to write to an external hard drive or similar storage. I don't think external CDs or DVDs are allowed under ghost 2003.

I suggest to get an external enclosure for the hard drive, and then clone the drive directly (partition to partition suggested as opposed to drive to drive). Furthermore, I strongly advise to set up the new hard drive in 2 partitions. Use one for programs, and one for data and ghost images.

The reason to have 2 partitions is that this way, next time you make a backup make it to store the image in the second partition. It should be very fast. Then, from windows burn the images normally. You have now your backup in DVD and in hard drive, handy if you need it. If the disk crashes, the DVD backup is available.

Norton Ghost 2003 works with most burners that I've tried (DVD & CD), but occasionally you'll run into one that gives you some anomolies. I've used the +/- capable versions of LG, IO Magic, and some others successfully with -R media, so you might try a different burner or make the backup to a hard disk or partition, and then burn it to DVD with something like Nero.

I don't doubt it works with most of the burner out there.... if connected to the IDE cable. He has the burner in a USB enclosure.
