Looks and 'feels' exactly the same to me!

The only thing I use True Image for is to create a base image of new OS installs. I like to install windows, activate it and tweak it just the way I like it. Then I add a few essential utilities and image it. Now, I can have a fresh Windows install applied in only a matter of minutes.

I do the same!

Renegade - AFAIK Acronis only deletes backups if u configure it that way - I still have my install backup from 9 months ago, and I do a daily backup and told Acronis to only keep 3 most recent copies. It works for me.... cheesy

Acronis has 'saved my bacon' a few times and my nonstop backup has proved very useful for restoring individual folders on my Data Drive... Thmbsup

They said the script could save them many trips to 'fix' warranty products!  Grin

BTW - it seems Media Monkey's cda burning is fried as mp3 works fine! So if I need to burn a cda for my friends who are still lingering in the 20th Century, I'll just use Windows.... ohmy

I'll be reporting the Bug.... thumb down

My local PC shop is interested in your ahk script - can I send them a copy along with the ahk program?

Disc I burned with plain old windows is fine so am going to roll back MM to previous version and test.

There have been interesting developments here! After testing it is starting to look like is was the Media Monkey burning engine that was playing up! After an update  ohmy

I have burned a disc using Win 7 and WMP and am currently playing it and so far so good - no decoding errors!

You have good recall 4wd - even I forgot those details!  embarassed Mum has to dive into case soon to disconnect SATA drive while I install Ubuntu on IDE so will see what we can do then...

Will keep u posted after disc finished playing... cheesy

Don't you have a currently non-used internal IDE DVD writer still in your machine?

You could reconnect it back up - depending on whether it was working or not when it was disconnected - might get you a few more burns before having to expend some money.

Yes but it's Ribbon Cable doesn't reach the IDE connection! Can I replace with something like this? A rounded cable?

And first prize goes to................

Target  Grin

Script worked like charm and gave the drive a kick in the proverbial backside!  Thmbsup Now it works without the script  Cool

Still got to test the burning as it all started when a music track got corrupted during a burn - I'll be giving it a good burning workout using a CD RW so as not to waste any more discs.

Will keep u posted!  Thmbsup

Hi - I'm seriously thinking of getting this:

Link to Kalahari.com

My current LiteOn Writer is refusing to eject the tray! Tried uninstalling Driver and rebooting but no go. It got stuck after a decoding error during a burn and although Mum managed to force open with paper clip to retrieve disc it now is well and truly stuck!  Angry

Any 'caveats' for an external usb writer? I don't use my drive much so speed is not a top priority!

Thanks

Oops - corrected - thanks...  Thmbsup

Yes even deep in the Winter we have a few flowering bushes!

Where else does it snow one day and the next I was sitting in the garden drying my hair.... From 9C to 23C!  huh

Latest view from 'Sunny' SA.  Grin
It finally happened after 40 years in SA! I was all tucked up in bed watching telly when I glanced out side and did a double take - it was SNOWING  ohmy ohmy

It hasn't snowed this far North since we've been here! Melted very quick but was a rare treat!

Mum rushed for the Camera.... :gig:

Somehow the domain that the newsletter sends out from (donationcodernews.com) wasn't set to autorenew and briefly expired last week.  That means that some percentage of recipients of the newsletter never got it.  Sorry!  The domain is back now so all should be good going forward.

Just saw it in my RSS Feed - didn't get email...

UPDATE UPDATE  Grin

Skywalker (old drive) has transferred his belongings to the Enterprise! (New Drive) and is now bunking next to Data (partition for data)  Grin [attach=#]

Hit a glitch after wiping old drive as I forgot to change boot order and deleted wrong system from BCD  embarassed


Anyway all good now after a boot repair and the Enterprise is up and running at Warp Speed! [attach=#]

Wow, your PC has a 'few' drives  Grin

I guess just leaving my partitions as Primary will hurt nothing....

The new build is progressing  Thmbsup
