I am running W2K on a P4 with 1 GB ram. I recently upgraded my hard drives from D0 20 gb, and D1 40 gb to D0 40 gb in two partitions OS and APPS and D1 200gb Data. Prior to changing drives I used Norton Ghost 9.0 to make a backup image, with verification, of my data files on the 40gb D1 drive. The backup image spans 5 CDs.

I have attempted to restore the data files to the 200 gb drive. After some 35 changes of CDs (I counted!) the following error message appeared:

E7C30010: Device||. Physical drive | cannot write 4096 sectors starting at LBA 63.
00000079 the semaphore timeout period has expired 0x7C30010

I went into disk manager and found that the drive D1 G: was not found. I reran Seagate's disk utility and formatted the D1 drive (NTFS). Now when I try to restore the data after 16 CD changes Ghost tells me the destination drive is in use(??) and aborts.

I would be most grateful for any insight into the resolution of this problem. I tried using Norton's support on line in the past and was most un-impressed with them.

Just a guess but could this be something to do with power saving spinning down the drive because it doesn't recognise Ghost as an 'activity'?
