hi,got myself the above, and as far as i can tell i have created a back up of the entire laptop onto a maxtor external drive, so far so good...what i can not do is make a boot cd, all i get is (error:unable to burn cd) anyone any idea why, it is running XP, it can be done with a pile of floppy disks and that does work, do you have to do anything with the cd first.

thanks

Just insert a blank cd-r and just follow the on-screen instructions.

The floppy disks do the same thing, just take alot longer to load

hi, mine is 826, just had a look on their web site and i can not find any update downloads..

You need to have registered your program and you will need the email address and password you registered with. Start Acronis and go to Help, Web Support. On the left of the resulting page is a link to Product Updates. If you haven't already registered there is a link to do so on the Password page.
