Norton Ghost Menu - File Name to copy Image to does not list external hard drive

HI, I'm using Ghost 8.0..
I've prepared the Dell Optiplex GX  520 to create standard image that I need to save in the external hard drive.

After picking the drive ( local C:\ ) that I want to make a copy..  , it does not give me the option to pick the external hard drive physically attached to the computer as the drive to tsave the image file to..  

I'm seeing A:\  and CD-DVD drive..
what should i do to proceed with this.. my goal is to keep the image file on the seagate external hard drive.. thx in advance.

Hi Myinzu,

Nortons Ghost 8 doesn't support USB external drives out of the box (by default).

What you need to do is create some form of Boot CD or USB stick that you can boot from (which loads up USB drivers) and then run the ghost32.exe program to image out to your external drive.

You can download free boot disks from here... http://www.allbootdisks.com/

Hope this helps,

thanks a lot.
I had to change the SATA Drive Operation Mode to Combination to see the external hard drive ..
I used the bootable floppy disk and another one with ghost application on.
