Retrospect 7.7.325 hangs when doing optical back up

Recommended Posts

It was working prior to the .325 release. Now when, after scanning files, the optical drives are presented, it shows me 2 drives (which I thought looks good as this release seemed now to support both as opposed to one only), but when I pop in a blank disc, it just hangs forever. In the previous release, when only one optical drive was presented, the process would continue after I popped in a blank disc.


Just to be sure, after rebooting, I configured one of the drives (the other is greyed out in config) by writing into test blank discs but the outcome is the same. I have not found an issue similar to mine in this forum yet.

Windows Vista - 32 bit


LG HL-DT-ST BDDVDRW GGC-H20L (F/W Ver. 1.07 - This one just got supported by .325 release and configured/tested with DVD blank discs fine but hangs.)


LG HL-DT-ST BD-RE WH08LS20 (F/W Ver. 2.0 - This was the one working in prior release although DVD's only. But now greyed out, couldn't be configured/tested.)

This update really messed up my optical backup process. After updating to the driver (still under .325 release), it simply stopped working. So I uninstalled Retrospect, downloaded 7.7.325 (with .100 driver built-in), and reinstalled it. Without configuring the first optical drive above, the script ran a 3.2 GB backup on a DVD-R disc for 4 hours - way too slow. I then test configured this same drive to see if it would improve, but this time the status tab just indicated Erased with a blank DVD-R in and was not continuing any further. I stopped the process.
