Re: Rewriting ISO as a backup method for DIR

My question is for those who have tried to backup whole DIR and subDIRHave you tried using other burning software? Say something free like burnatonce from www.burnatonce.com.
as a daily operation. The method I work on is to write an ISO for the target DIR and burn that ISO to CD using TAO with "closed session".
Using Fireburner V106 under Windows98se/OEM with a LG(52x) GCE-8525B
burner, the tracks burn fine with no error reported on completion.
Viewing the finished disc after an 'update' shows the previous backup!
That is, nothing has changed in the content of the DIR. Examining the CD with diagnostic software (CD-RD) raises this error on the initial scan:
"the file directory for track 2 is not contained in the track".
CD-RD then displays the CD structure showing only "Session 1" with an additional
"unknown data track xxxxxx blocks" being illustrated as a DIR @ Root. The CD structure also shows a "Lead Out" DIR written at the end, displaying the total
number of blocks for Session 1.
My question is. As each ISO has a unique VOL. ID why then is FB apparently not recognizing that ID as a descriptor?
Both the viewing software (Windows Explorer) and the report from CD-RD as copied below
seem to indicate that this is where the problem originates? Or, have I set switches in error?
"Multi session" is selected.
"Close session" is selected.
"Write 12" is toggled Off.
Thoughts from those who know, please :)
Also, if you install something like Virtual CloneDrive from Elby at www.elby.ch/products/clone_dvd/manual/drive.html to mount ISO files as virtual filesystems under windows, you can simply burn the ISO backup files to CD as normal files and read the contents of the ISOs with Virtual CloneDrive.
