Re: DiRT SQL errors

Very likely you don't have rights to write to that Z drive mapping (I've seen this in a few cases). Try selecting a local drive as a test to make sure it can write through... the "Can't open device" error when you have a mapped drive is almost always going to be a permissions issue for a share, however.
