Hi
I just got the new Packard Bell ixtreme x9610 and had tried to create the back up dvd of the operating systems - each time I create a dvd and test it says
' Your DVD was not created properly - to repeat the process please insert a blank recordable DVD'

I have done this 4 times now and the message is always the same - I've looked at the files on the DVD copies and they all seem to be on there - but I can't be sure they would work if my computer goes kerput!

Has anyone else had his problem or do you know how I check that they will work?
Any info appreciated!
Thanks for your help!

You may be using the wrong kind of DVD's they may be + or - some will work with both but also make of cd in the drive also as a baring on whether they burn ok
