Windows 7: Disk Image on DVD Problem

Disk Image on DVD Problem

I am using Windows 7 Home Premium and am trying to image my hard drive with 2 partitions on it, C and E. When I try and create a system image to DVD disks on drive F, the message "Label and insert a blank media bigger than 1 GB" appears. It wants the label to be "David-Inspiron 2/1/2010 6:47AM 1" a much longer label than the 16 characters allowed when I tried to format the DVD and apply a volume label. How do I move forward? Thanks. David

You're only going to have problems trying to back up to DVD's. Perfect excuse to get an external HD.

The image tutorial does not cover labeling issues, unfortunately. I'll take a look at Paragon. Thanks.
