Clone from HDD to DMG on external drive fails

I've tried this multiple times (at 2 hours a pop) and it fails each time. Source disk is 25GB full, destination is 160gb firewire drive with 85gb free.

Any ideas? I'd like to be able to use the image created with ASR, hence using a DMG.

Also, I've tried disabling compression and get the same error. This error also happens with Carbon Copy Cloner. Just wondering if you had a suggestion on howto back things up in order to have a bootable restore image. I'm beginning to prepare for the Tiger upgrade!
