    Has anyone had any sucess backing up their copy of Leopard? :confused:
    I can't seem to get any apps to burn a DVD+R DL? I tried Toast 8 and Nero 8.

    I made a .cdr image of the disc and then burned it using Toast 8.
    My problem was that the external DVD drive I was using had an issue and my Super Drive didn't support DL as I already knew.

    Hey, I cracked the code Friday night when 10.5 came out.

    You'll need:

    A dual layer disc (and a dual layer drive to burn the disc)
    A blank CD

    - Go to disk utility
    - Make an image out of the install disc, save it on your desktop
    - DO NOT mount the image

    - Put in your DL disk
    - Click 'burn' (still in disk utility), then choose the dmg file you just made
    - Takes a while, but then you have a working copy of 10.5

    BUT - the bootcamp drivers disc (within the install disc) is not recognized or copied when you capture the image. So you will need to go into Windows (if you are so inclined to put BC on your machine), and then capture an image of that DVD (using Roxio, Nero etc).

    Then burn it on to the CD.

    BANG - both discs are copied and you have your backup.

    I didn't seem to need your "cracked code" method. I simply made an image of the Leopard disc and burned it. Bootcamp seemed fine.

    Oh, I apologise. Sorry for responding to your post. Why did you post if you already knew the answer again?

    Backup Leopard

    I was able to make a backup of the disc using disc utility and a DL disk, but when I tryed to install the OS from the burned disk is when I ran into problems, I got all the way to the installation progress screen and it had some error creating files. Am I doing something wrong??

    Maybe you should reviewed previous posts in the thread.

    "I made a .cdr image of the disc and then burned it using Toast 8.
