Image transfer issue!
Apr 9th, 2006 at 9:13pm
 
Hi there,

I tried transferring a Ghost 2003 created image to a DVD from my machines hard rive but it won’t.

I am using Nero to burn it but Nero fails to recognize the .GHO format.

My questions are:

1. What format do I have to convert the .GHO image to before Nero can burn it on to a DVD?

2. How can I transfer an image created directly on to a DVD media instead of the drive?

3. Can Ghost image be infected by a virus etc?

4. How can one screen capture shots of DOS mode (I have ACDSee ver. 8.0?

Sorry for the botheration.

Hoping to hear your expert views.

Regards,

Ivanov P Yezinki.

i have burned *.gho images to cd/DVD many times using Nero, so i know it recognizes the *.gho file extension. Nero doesn't care about file extensions. it burns whatever file you select. a file is a file is a file.

are you getting a specific error? selecting the correct directory?

not sure what you mean by ques #2, but you can burn directly to DVD,

http://ghost.radified.com/screens/ghost_2002_backup_cdr.gif

..but that usually takes longer than imaging to hard drive.

#3, i guess *any* prgm can be infected, but i've never heard of virus that targets ghost, and I've been using it for 7 or 8 years now.

i grab screen shots by opening a dos window in windows and pressing the PrintScreen button.

By the way, SnagIt is an outstanding utility for capturing screen images in Windows XP.

Thanks Rad & Pleonasm for your comments.

1. I was trying to use the option, “Burn Image” in Nero when it failed to recognize the .GHO format.

Are you trying to imply that I should burn Ghost image as a Data DVD?

2.  Yes that’s what I meant, to create an image directly on a DVD. (I apologize about my poor English & knowledge regarding computer stuff).

3. As you mentioned that you grab screen shots of DOS in windows by pressing on Print Screen, what are their formats jpeg or gif & where do they get saved.

Regards,

Ivanov P Yezinki.

the nero image is different from the ghost image.

the nero image is an iso image (of a cd/dvd).

a ghost image is an "image"of your hard drive, or an individual partition.

they are not interchangable.

nero images use the file extension *.nrg (if i recall correctly)

i save my screen shots in photoshop. you can use any file extension you like. for those scren shots, gif is best (smallest size).

Rad, I use a slight variation of your technique. I just press Print Scrn, open Photoshop, File, New (you will see it is already at your screen resolution), OK. Edit, Paste. There it is ready for cropping. I use .gif too.

I don't open a dos window so it's slightly different.

Rad and Brian

If you want just the *active* window and not the whole screen, use *alt+Print Screen* keys!

Hi there again,

I do realize that Nero image is either ISO image of a CD/DVD & Ghost image is different.

I do understand that Nero uses nrg. extensions.

My question is simple, how do I transfer Ghost created image residing on another drive, to a DVD using Nero?

Thanks Pleonasm for suggesting SNAGIT & Night Owl for Alt+Print technique.

Regards,

Ivanov P Yezinki

Open Nero (I don't have your version--so I'm giving *general* terms from here on)

File Menu--New--Data CD (or DVE)

Top screen (source screen), browse to source file (your Ghost image file), right mouse click on it and:

Bottom screen, drag Ghost file from top screen to Destination screen and release the right mouse button.

Hit the *Burn* button to burn it to the optical disk.

if you want to grab an image from (dos-based) ghost 2003, which pappy is using, you'll need the dos window. otherwise i have no need of the dos window. and yes (nightowl) i always use the alt-prntscrn trick .. to get just the active window. saves much annoying cropping.

When you are setting up the Ghost 2003 procedure to save an image, select your optical writer as the destination drive instead of one of the hard drive partitions.

4. How can one screen capture shots of DOS mode

Are you talking about a screen shot of a DOS command window under Windows--or a screen shot if you are booted to *pure DOS* from a boot disk?

Not too many *pure DOS* screen shot progams out there, but this has worked for me--not much documentation however--have to play with it for awhile to see how it works:

Screen Thief


In DOS, you load ScreenThief first and then the program you want to capture screen shots of--I found I often have to run it from a FAT HDD partition and starting both programs from the same directory for it to work correctly.

Ah, makes sense to me now, Rad.

NightOwl mentioned doing screen capture in Ghost 10 RE. I can't think of a way apart from a digital camera. It could probably be done in ReatogoXPE. I'll check.

ReatogoXPE has a plugin called MWSnap. It does Screen Capture.
