I am trying to create an image of an NTFS partition and burn it directly to a USB attached DVD writer, while booting to Knoppix 3.6 LiveCD. I can see the external drive fine. However, I am receiving an error stating that it cannot copy to temp.. after specifiying the destination of the image (dvd burner). I saw a post stating that the image MUST be saved to the hard drive 1st and then can be burnt to a cd/dvd. Is this 100% true? I do not have enough space to copy to a hard drive.
If this is true, do I have any other options to create an image of an NTFS partition while booting to LiveCD and on the fly burning to a dvd ?
Thank you in advance!
