    System Image Error

    I am trying to create system image using "windows 7 file recovery" feature from the control panel.But no matter what i do it shows me this error "The device is not ready(0x80070015)".I am trying to create system image on DVD, so i tried by inserting the disk first but that didnt work.Then I kept the DVD DRIVE empty that didnt work either and it shows the same error code.The only damn thing i have created so far is the system repair disk.The DVD DRIVE is working fine and i have no clue about how to solve this problem.Any solution to this problem?

    Backup is now working fine after doing the following - I'm not sure which did the trick.

    •sfc /scannow – found 4 errors and fixed them
    •Changed Windows Backup Service from Manual to Automatic
    •Changed Volume Shadow Copy Service from Automatic Delayed Start to Automatic
    •Defragmented all hard drives and ran chkdsk /f (but no errors found)

    You can't create a system image on a DVD, the media size is to small. You need a separate internal or external HDD for creating backups (system image). Depending on what you have on your system, the size can be from 40 GB to 200 GB. I prefer to use Acronis or Aomei for my backups.

    A change in Windows 8 kernel causes the mounting of raw DVD volumes to fail with a different error code than Windows 7. The new error code is not recognized by "Windows 7 File Recovery", resulting in failure in the backup process.More information

    .The issue can be resolved by formatting the DVD manually first:

    1.Right-click the DVD drive in File Explorer.

    2.Select "Format" and accept the default values.
