My new Acer 5741 occasionally asks that I create a Backup Recovery Disc. I start the process and it says back-up will take three dvd discs. Everything goes fine until it asks for the second disc and then the whole thing just ticks over doing absolutely nothing. The elapsed time clocks up but the progress bar does not move. After an hour I have to force a shut down in order to use the computer again. Can anyone tell me what is going wrong

make the recovery to a second partition or too an external drive, disks are nortoriously fickle for backups.

"My new Acer 5741" If that is true then I would contact Acer for support. IMO DVDR is more reliable than backing up to a hard drive or flash media.

You should be able to backup to optical media. Are the first and second DVDR both the same brand/speed, etc.? Don't use DVDRW media.

Make sure your laptop is not overheating. Place on a hard flat surface and use AC power when performing the backup.
