In order to determine whether the image is any good or is corrupted, open the Ghost Explorer and then use the "verify" function to see if the image you created is any good or not.

That would be my first step.

Are you using original ghost 9.0 cd to do restore? if you use copied cd, it used to give such error. The ghost cd should recognize the v2i if it was original created by its cd. Just asking to get more information.

I am trying to do a mount of the v2i image file. I have also tried doing an image restore to another drive and it looks like it is going fine but when it is done. there is no data on the new drive.

There are a few of hardware required for ghosting I am trying to recall. Such as if you have cpu P4 with HT, so disable this function in bios before ghosting. Have you tried creating backup DVD? I used to do that with ghost 9 and had no issue so far.

The image was corrupt so I used Ontrack data recover to recover the raw data. I had hoped for an easier solution...such as a way to repair the ghost image. Thanks for all your help..!!

Glad to hear you got your raw data recovered.  There is an option which I always check in Ghost to verify the image right after creating it.  This gives me a better confidence that it will restore if/when I really need it.  This won't help you now, but keep it in mind for the future.
