    I have Ghost 7 (came with Systemworks 2004) and am trying to use it for the first time. When it gets to the PC DOS screen and starts to write it only writes a 32 kb .GHO file on each DVD before asking for the next disc to be put in and so on.

    The Toshiba DVD drive is listed as compatible by Norton.
    I am using new DVD-RW discs which work fine on the computer with other applications.

    Any suggestions?

    I never tried using GHOST 7 with DVD's, but I recall something on the Symantec site about it not working to write them directly. I think you need to create the backup in chunks on a local hard disk, then burn the segments to the DVD's.
