DVD-RW

Created: 02 Feb 2005 • Updated: 21 May 2010 | 5 comments

I just downloaded the evaluation ver. 10 Backup Exec for Windows Servers. It will not recognize my Sony DVD-RW. I was told bt the people at Veritas it would. The DVD-RW is a model DRX-510UL. Any help here would be great. We are in the evaluation mode on which backup software to purchase.

Thank you in advance.

You will need to create a Removable Backup to disk folder for your DVD-RW .

You can use the following TN : http://seer.support.veritas.com/docs/253764.htm

Hope this helps

Additionally, ensure that the device appears as a drive letter and is formatted with a file system. For CDR-RW and DVD-RW, third-party software must be used to format the media with a file system before it can be used with Backup Exec.

We hope this helps.
Thanks.

Assuming the solution provided is correct. Also, there is no response from the customer within 2 days from the last reply by Veritas

Thank you for all the help. We have decided to use an HP DAT 12/24 tape drive insyead of the DVD. Moore room for future needs.

Can you recommend a 3rd party software that will accomplish this? Thanks.
