    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?

    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.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.Sorce Link:Creating a system image on Windows 8 may fail if the CD/DVD is not formatted
