Has anyone beaten this frustrating error message?
I want to install XP SP2 and am trying to do a back up first. I have tried various trial back up programs but get stalled every time. The Windows XP Back Up apparently won't let you save to removable media and although I have 2 x 40 gig hard disks I do not have enough room on either for a full system backup. So I am using blank DVDs.
I have most recently installed a trial version of Acronis True Image 8 but when it prompts for a drive to save the back up image file to when I select my DVD drive (with a brand new DVD in it) I get the message "D:/is not accessible. Incorrect function"
There is nothing wrong with the DVD drive as far as I know as it plays commercial DVD without problem and will burn using some DVD making software I have. I am using a DVD-R disk but I have tried with -RW and I think also +R. All to know avail.
When I look at the Properties of the drive with the blank disk inserted it says the file system is "RAW". I am wondering if I need to format the DVD disk in some way.
Anyone out there got the answer or any suggestions?
