stre0185 Posted June 27, 2002 Report Share Posted June 27, 2002 Hi, I recently downloaded and installed the latest trial version of Express, and I'm attempting my first backup, but I keep getting error 206. I've tried everything suggested elsewhere on Dantz's site and what I can think of. Below are the stats on my computer and the text from the log of my latest attempt. I used Nero to look at the disk that I used in my last attempt and below is what it could tell me. I have the list of media that the manufacturer of my burner (Plextor) recommends, but I haven't been able to determine whether my media is on the list. However, my media is TDK and there are lots of TDK products on the list, and I haven't had any problems using the media with other applications and the same burner. My burner, a PlexWriter PX-R412Ce, is on Dantz's supported hardware list. Dantz notes that Express can't use the burner at its highest rated speed, but doesn't give any information about what, if anything, to do about that. I haven't been able to find any way to force my burner to write at lower speeds when using Express. Any suggestions?
