Ghost v8.3 doesn't restore large images from DVD

I made a bootable DVD twice :

first DVD:
-----------
image.gho has size 2Gb, and image.001 has size 1.5Gb

restoring the first part goes ok, bur when Ghost is about to proceed
to image.001, it comes with 'decompression error 10'

second DVD:
---------------
image.gho has size 1Gb, image.001 has size 1Gb, image.002 has size 1Gb, and image.003 0.5Gb -> same result

those images are valid; they can be restored perfectly when they are restored from hard-drive.

the DVD was burned with Nero 7 and verification turned on. the images are located in the bootpart.

the weird thing is also that ghost 8.3 display a small image (18Mb)
with a different icon when it's on DVD. (he doesn't recognize it as a ghost-image)

My PC here is a pentium D with S-ATA harddrive and a
Sony UDMA DVD-drive with no additional drivers in the config.sys

Symantec won't support that version of Ghost if I'm correct.

help is very much appreciated.

So... Yo create images on HDD then burn'em to DVD??? VHAT???


Create Floppy boot with ghost... open NERO Express... File... New... (<-Left side) CD ROM (Boot)... on Boot tab select option "Bootable logical drive (Must fit on the CD!)... Burn CD...

That CD will boot with Ghost to create/restore images directly to CDs/DVDs... Kay!!!

No comments can be removed by mortals (you and I), you have to go to CS and ask for it... if you want to edit your question, that too can't be done, had to ask CS, or extend you question in comments...

ghost reports an error with filenames like this :

31-10-2006  16:48   2.147.476.178  XP.GHO
31-10-2006  16:49   1.690.720.515  XP000001.GHS

this works fine (using whatboy's method) :

 Volume in drive G is GHOST_001      Serial number is C2BB:1871
 Directory of  G:\*.*
