Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Need to creat system restore dvds for sony notebook morel #vgn-nr498e. ok to use dvd-r disc ?


Answers :

I have Sony VGN-FZ140e. I'm fairly certain the technique remains the same tho, as they probably use exactly the same routine which if memory serves is written by PC-Angel. In other words, Sony didn't write the recovery software, but they should have. PC-Angel will only give on ONE and only ONE opportunity to write the recovery DVDs. If the Recovery DVDs fail to write correctly the first time around ( and don't trust the Verification procedure either ), you will be out of luck from the point of view of PC-Angel and from Sony also as Sony will not break the rules created in their deal with PC-Angel in order to tell you how to get around the one time write problem. If I had known this when I first bought the this Sony I would have taken it back to store immediately. HP doesn't have this issue as they use a different recovery strategem
Yes, DVD-R should be fine, but get at least 5 in case of verification errors the PC-Angel routine does allow you to recover from. In the end you should end up with Recovery set consisting of two DVDs 4.7 GBs, and one recovery diagnostic CD/DVD.
Be aware also of media quality issues, it has been my experience with my Sony AW-G540A DVDwriter that it is extremely picky about the media being used, and Sony has pretty much ignored firmware updates for this and similar models of Optiarc drives. Optiarc is a company that comprises Sony and NEC made DVD/CD drives.
So all I am saying is be careful of what you think you have in the laptop, it may not be as good as the advertising hypes.
If you end up with the One Time Write violation of the PC-Angel recovery routine, come back, as I have located a fix for the problem that neither PC-Angel nor Sony wants anyone to know about. Hope this has helped.
DVD is better and as i know you will need 3 DVDs.
