Cover disc--Genie

  muddypaws 14:04 15 Jan 2006

I am trying to do some test backups with Genie backup on this months cover disc. It appears to be a simple programme and does back up right to the last second when in the writing mode.
The first attempt was with an Imation DVD +R 8X.Almost at 100% I get the error message:
'Writing error.[3]. Error occurred while writing data to disc. The drive could not track properly.
Error Sense Data: SENSE KEY:4ASC:9ASCQ:1'

The second attempt was with a Maxell DVD-R. At the same point I get the error:
'Writing Error: (3)Error closing DVD-R track Error trying to write past the end of the media. Error Sense Data:5ASC:21:ASCQ 0'
My drive is an LG 4160B DVD/RAM which is writing perfectly with other programmes and OS is Win XP SP2.
Any ideas please.

I have just successfully backed up 500 mbs to a Memorex CD-R so the drive is OK.

Also I have just done another test backup with Roxio onto DVD and all works OK.
So is it Genie write problem.Anyone else used Genie yet?
