I can define the sparse image as a source (from external Firewire drive), define the destination and I have also scanned for the image using Disk Utility but Disk Utility comes back with the following error:

"Unable to Scan image _______.__ (Invalid argument). :mad:

Its really important I revert back to 10.5 from Snow Leopard :)

This does not sound good...

(I booted off Snow Leopard DVD)

Rgds,

James

You need to follow the instructions in the User's Guide, James: mount/open the image, then restore from its mounted volume, not from the image 'file'.
