Norton Ghost 2003 - Program Fails Prior to Spanning to DVD Discs...
Posted on 2006-10-25
I thought that I would be a wise guy and try imaging my C:\ to be responsible and all that. I installed a copy of Norton Ghost 2003 on my 1.0GHz, w98SE machine and tried to ghost the image after reading the well-known Ghost instruction manual found at ghost.radified.com .
Well, I THINK I know what is supposed to happen, but when the process starts (in MS-DOS mode), after correctly identifying the drive and the target media (Samsung DVD drive--handles all approp. media discs), the program hangs after beginning w/ the operation: checking directory structures...
Interestingly, all my DVD discs (Memorex) appear to have a 44-byte file on them that is recognized by the extension .cda. They are all brand-new discs so I don't know what to make of that.
I don't have the time or skill to look into this endlessly myself and must rely on the talented people here. Do any of you have an idea what could be the problem here (besides the user himself)?
Thanks so much,
