    phillips dvd

    After much agony I found the Dantz tut called "How to Auto Configure a CD-RW Device". I followed the instructions and configured the drive for a DVD. It seemed to work fine doing a backup until I got 149 errors. Here is a sampling: Trouble positioning: "Backup" (11777), error -206 (drive reported a failure: Dirty heads, bad media, etc.) Trouble positioning: "BackUp" (11777), error -206 (drive reported a failure: Dirty heads, bad media, etc) Additional error information for Device "Philips DVD+-RW - rdi" [0:0] Sense > 700003000000001200000000110000000000 (Philips | DVD+-RW DVD8631 | CD21) I'm thinking now to do the Tut only for a CD/RW and see how that will work. Also there is a problem with Recovery if the Disaster recovery disk is for a CD and the Data Disk is for a DVD!!!!! Thanks for any help, JPS

    dvd list

    I 1st got Retrospect Express with my Sony R/W CD. Since then I upgraded it online to 6.5 It supported the Sony R/W. Thanks, JPS

    dvd list

    I have Windows XP Pro and it has a backup that supports the Phillips drive. I backed up my system and it seemed to work fine. Haven't restored as yet but if the restore is anything like the backup then it is a better product that this unsupported product by Dantz. It was fast and simple to use. I am sorry I spent my money on such a bad product as Retrospect Express. Has anyone else tried it??? JPS

    PLEASE would someone from Dantz answer this post. There is no support for the Phillips DVD 8631. I am running windows xp pro on a Dell gx280. At the present time I have NO BACKUP. Regards, JPS

    phillips dvd

    Just purchased a new Dell gx280. It has a Phillips DVD/RW. I think DVD 8631? As of now I have no backup. The Phillips drive is not recognized by Retrospect Express 6.5. I don't think 7.0 would solve the problem either. I tried to customize the drive but that didn't work either. Is there any chance of Dantz recognizing the drive in the very near future????? Regards, JPS

    Is this a valid backup to a slave drive?

    Thank you for responding. Yes I used the "all files" selector and the job completed successfully.

    Is this a valid backup to a slave drive?

    Yes I had compression enabled.

    I certainly would appreciate it if someone would take a few moments to answer this question. Thanks, JPS
  10. This is my first attempt at backing up to a hard drive. My intention is to do away with backups to CD/RWs if possible. The partition to backup is 1,826,381,824 bytes. First I created a directory on the slave drive called mycatalogp1. Backup set name is bujan29jackp1. Ran Retrospect express pointing the destination to the slave drive and mycatalogp1. Everything seemed to work fine. Here are the results from the backup---- In mycatalogp1 on the slave drive-- bujan29jackp1 7,127kb retrospect catalog 1-29-2005 retrospect on the slave drive-- folder bujan29jackp1 file folder 1-29-2005 folder 1-bujan29jackp1 file folder 1-29-2005 aa000000 614,408kb retrospect disk backup set 1-29-2005 aa000001 614,408kb retrospect disk backup set 1-29-2005 aa000002 189,212kb retrospect disk backup set 1-29-2005 aa000003 9,168kb retrospect disk backup set 1-29-2005 Since the partition is 1.70G the backup files are no where near this amount. Is this because of compression or is there an error???? Thanks for any help, JPS

    Backing up multiple disk partitions.

    Yes I have a different OS in each partition. I also use System Commander by V-Communucations to handle the partitions and their size What I have to do is: Partition 1: back it up using Retrospect Express & create a Disaster Recovery cd Partition 2: Back it up using Retrospect Express Partition 3: Back it up using Retrospect Express then to restore: 1: from the Disaster Recovery Disk by Dantz, partition the C drive using FDISK to make 1 partition & make it active. Format the whole drive. Use the Disaster Recovery CD & the backup data disks from Retrospect express to recreate partition 1. Go to System Commander and resize the partition to whatever. 2: To make the 2nd partition in System Commander use the COPY function to copy partition 1 to the 2nd partition. Resize the partition to whatever. In the 2nd partition use the Retrospect Express backup CDs to restore the partition to its original state. 3: To make the 3rd partition in System Commander use the COPY function to copy partition 1 to the 3rd partition. Resize the partition to whatever. In the 3rd partition use the Retrospect Express backup CDs to restore the partition to its original state. This works but what a hassle..... Regards, JPS

    Backing up multiple disk partitions.

    Hi, I have three partitions and back up each one separately. Only create a Disaster Recovery disk for the 1st partition and have a devil of a time with the other two partitions. Is there a better way???????? I have found that a Disaster Recovery for the 2nd & 3rd partition wipes out the 1st partition.

    Out of luck?

    Now that EMC has bought Dantz is the little guy out of luck? Will Retrospect Express get better? Thanks, JPS
