  3. Strange that you had to do that. I just run the .BAT file by double clicking on it in File Explorer.
  4. Hi, thanks for the response. I found the problem. I was trying to install madflac by running the "install.bat" as an administrator from the GUI. The solution was to open a command window and use the START command to install it. All of my FLAC files are now recognized successfully. I'm very pleased and relieved. Again, thanks. Thomas
  5. I haven't made an audio CD from FLAC files in some time, but last time I did it, I was using madFLAC under Windows 10 x64. It may sound counterproductive, but try using any of the online free audio file converters to convert one of these FLAC's to a FLAC. This new FLAC might actually be compliant. I've had that happen before, actually. However, it may not actually do any good at all, though. I just tried creating a CUE file under Windows 10 1903 x64 and it worked with the FLAC I put in. So, I'd be leaning more towards your input files being the problem. However, without you actually having a FLAC file you know worked before and trying it again, it's hard to say if it's your input files or your madFLAC installation.
  6. I recently needed to burn some FLAC files to an audio CD. My first thought was that I'd need to install the madflac v 1.10 filter, so I did. Nevertheless, my FLAC files still aren't recognized. I thought it might be something peculiar to certain FLAC files, so I tried a variety of them, all with the same result. I'm running Windows 10 x64 v1903. Attached is a screenshot and a sample ImgBurn log file. `Is there any workaround for this? Thanks and regards, Thomas ImgBurn.log

    Probably wouldn't do any good to let Verbatim know. They'd most likely tell me to do what I intend to do next week and return them. If they are unaware, then it is probably a one off packaging error the automated lines made. If they are aware, they'd deny anything, so it's kind of a wasted exercise.

    Must of been a manufacturing glitch but you should let Verbatim know, even though they almost positively let the resellers know. No way they would gamble on a lawsuit, no matter how trivial.
  10. Yep, just as I thought. It's a PUP. They're not viruses. LUK must have updated the installer package to replace OpenCandy with something else? Anyway, you could normally avoid it, but your AV scanner is deleting the file before it can be used. I don't know anything about Windows Defender, so I can't tell you how to exclude the file. Just be aware when you run the installer to uncheck things you don't want installed along with ImgBurn. Or, before running the installer if you ever get it, turn off your Internet connection until the installer in finished. That way, it can't phone home to a server for free offers.
  11. Sure would have been nice of Microsoft to actually SAY what the virus was. Without it saying, there's no way of knowing if it's an actual virus or just a PUP positive. I downloaded the file from Mirror 7 and scanned it with Avast and Malwarebytes with no positive results. So, Microsoft is most likely detecting some Potentially Unwanted Program (PUP). They're not viruses but people blindly click and install them. Some AV programs are lazy and don't differentiate between viruses and PUP's. As for the hash discrepancy, LUK might have had to put in a replacement for OpenCandy, the PUP, which was discontinued. And he just forgot to update the SHA value on the page. Until he chimes in on the subject, it's up for debate.

    They are a stack of 10 discs that come in a box. The printing on the outside of the box says they're 16x. But, the branded label surface of each disc says 6x. When inserted in the LG WH16NS60, the maximum listed write rate is 12x. And the drive will write to these discs at a maximum rate of 12x. However, the same is said of 16x media, as the Pioneer BDR-211 is the only one I've seen that gets near 16x on the 16x media.
  13. I hope these snapshots (attached) help. Downloads and snapshots from today (2019-08-16).
  14. Hi! The site from where I downloaded (what it seems to be a v.2.5.8.0 infected by threat according to Windows 10 Defender) is indeed the mirror 7, managed by imgburn.com. As I have told, Edge have destroyed it before I had access to it. Using the same tools - and the same browsing section -, I tried other mirrors to download v.2.5.8.0. They were: majorgeeks (mirror 6), techspot (5), free-codes (4) and softpedia (3). They all passed the Windows Defender screening and they all delivered the same image (i.e., all presented the same SHA-1 value). Nonetheless, the SHA-1 value does not match the one presented at the download page. The software used to calculate SHA-1 belongs to 7-zip, v19.00.

    it would be an accident if it said six times outside on the package or 16 x excuse me and then it turned out to be six times on the inside with the disc then that is not a mistake, especially twice now. Unless the discs are actually saying 16 times themselves and they're still writing to just six times or above then that's a whole other issue. So what exactly happening if I may ask? The wrapper or advertisement says 16x, and the discs 6x, or the discs say 16x and writing at 6x...? They know believe me, and they wouldn't take a chance purposely because there's middlemen involved.

    Verbatim would deny anything. If they're really doing it, they won't admit it. If it's a mistake, they won't admit to that, either. Amazon's probably just selling old 6x stock to get rid of it. Or they may not even be aware they're doing it. The packages both look the same except for the wording. And they're probably sitting on all kinds of 6x stock they're trying to get rid of. Now, that it happened at a brick and mortar store is more of a dead giveaway that Verbatim would have done that themselves. And it may have just been an accident. Some batches of 6x's got mixed in with the 16x's. Then again, it could be Verbatim's own conscious doing. Who knows? Sent off the Pioneer to the replacement place today. Wasn't as big a hit on the wallet as I thought it might be. 2 day shipping, should get there by Saturday, for $9.95, but I paid an extra $3.50 for $155 insurance. Best to get my $155 back if it gets lost in the mail for a $3.50 investment. I've only ever had 3 pieces of mail never get delivered either to me or sent by me to someone else. So, the likelihood of loss is low, but best to err on the side of caution when $155 is at stake.

  18. Which mirrors did you use? There are 7. Always choose Mirror 7 if you didn't choose it before. That's one maintained by ImgBurn.com and the least likely to be altered by the other providers to include PUP's.
  19. Hi! (" My") Windows 10 Security detected a virus when downloading v2.5.8.0 from imgburn.com - and thus the downloaded file is immediately discarded. This does not happen when downloading from other mirrors - I tested 4 of them. In addition, neither CRC32 nor SHA-1 match the value stated in your downloading page.

    According to the software and drive and firmware. On the DVD+R Verbs I'll get 24x as I showed you. Definitely with Power2Go. ImgBurn also but gradually creeping towards the end. VSO aka ConvertXtoDVD, or their CopytoDVD will usually stop at half of what it's capable. Must say it's a sure burn. So someone complained. Hit Verbatim see what they tell you. I'm curious. You're paying for 16x not 6x.

    Well, they don't say you'll get 16x because of the variances with drives and the firmware write strategies for each medium. The box just says 16x and the label on the branded surface just says 16x. Besides, the only drive I know of where you get anything other than 12x is on the BDR-211. I don't know about any BD drive from ASUS or anyone else. However, you can get 12x speed on the 6x media. And they're probably charging more for the 6x media by claiming it's 16x since 16x media should be more expensive because it writes faster even though it isn't. I've gotten all my office chairs, including the one I'm sitting in in front of my PC, at Office Depot. So, I really can't just stop buying from them, really. Yeah, I got 14.7x max on the BDR-211 with the 16x media that was nearly fully written. If I had a full size image set, I would probably get 16x at the edge. Like with my DVD+R. 16x is generally only achieved with a full 4.7 GB. I checked the first page of reviews for the 16x BD-R Verbatim media on Amazon.com and someone else gave a negative review saying not to buy because they weren't as advertised. Amazon.com sent them 6x instead of 16x.

    TSSTcorp CDDVD SH-S202J SB03 won't read disc

    Wao! Why are they advertising them as 16 x and then when you open them up there only six times? It's not saying up to 16 times correct? Do a little research online and see what others are saying about this. It won't cost you anything and you'll see if this has been an issue previously which I'm almost certain that it probably has. I haven't done anything at Office Depot since the last time I bought a chair from them that was on sale, though they do have some things that are still wanted by us in the media world. You never really got 16 times on those anyway correct? The highest you went on the Pioneer was about 14 x correct?

    TSSTcorp CDDVD SH-S202J SB03 won't read disc

    Remember that story I told of Amazon.com sending me 6x BD-R that they advertised as 16x? It happened again, this time with a brick and mortar store! I bought some 16x BD-R at Office Depot, but when I opened the package, every single disc in the stack was branded as 6x on the surface label! Now, on the BDR-211, it might be possible to get 16x on 6x media. On the WH16NS60, you get 12x on 6x (And 16x.) media. So, the BD-R should get at least 12x, too, but I got these media for 16x, which can only be achieved on the BDR-211. And mine is currently waiting to see if I can get replaced under warranty. So, since it won't cost me anything to return these except my time, I'm taking them back to Office Depot. Worst case scenario, they won't give me a refund, but should give me store credit. If they won't give me anything, well, there's always Amazon.com to do my shopping from. I can still get 12x on these 6x media, so it's not like they're useless, but it's not what I purchased them for. So, if they won't give me a refund or store credit, I can still use them. I'll just never buy BD-R from Office Depot again!

    ImgBurn doesn’t see the filters, your system does. Once they’re properly known/installed, directshow will use them. Of course it could always be that your flac files aren’t supported by madFlac.

    Thanks a million! Of course it's possible! Though no way will the results be any good at the sizes that I'm seeing online. There's no way that a 25 or 50 GB is going to go down to that size using preset settings like the one you just said which ironically is the same one that I use fast 1080p 30. The only way for it to even go down to 1 GB etc etc is to manually put in the amount you want and manually set the bitrate excetera. It will definitely not look great like the ones they have online and so the guys online are fos! Some of those claim 400mb from Blu-ray! No way! People will do anything for an audience when they need one.

    I rarely do Blu-Ray to container conversions but I do have access to a BD movie that was one a BD-50. I will create a container from it and see what results I get. I'll let you know when it completes, as I expect it to take some time. It's really interesting how life tries to trick you. After swapping back in the WH16NS60, I had a DVD+RW fail on me. Now, knowing this disc had been written to before, before I panicked, I tried a 2nd DVD+RW. It wrote and Verified fine. So, it just happened to choose that exact moment for the other DVD+RW to die on me in a blatant attempt to try and trick me. Yeah, looks like it's going to take over an hour. I'm creating an MKV from 1 hour, 43 minutes, and 16 seconds worth of main movie. I'm using Handbrake, set at Fast 1080p30, with 1 audio track, English DTS 5.1 channel, and 1 subtitle track, English. Only 1 Pass. Theoretically, using Fast over any of the HQ settings will result in a smaller file size. I guess I should have used Very Fast to minimize file size and time execution, but this should still be a good indicator once it finishes. And the results are in: 6.81 GB! So, is it possible to get under 1 GB? Yes. But, it requires a lot of compression. It would depend on the codec you're using, and it also means you're sacrificing video quality to get that small a size.

    That is what I installed was madFlac image-burn doesn't see it even when it says successfully installed.This is first time I've dealt with Flac files.

    I keep forgetting that The human condition is totally corrupt for the most part! I've been looking at all those files by certain individuals online and there's no way that a Blu-ray 1080p is going to fit on 400mb, even 1 or 2GB! Especially without losing quality drastically! I don't know why I even fell into believing that, though just a minute ago I said to myself that must be pure BS! Well yesterday I did some serious multitasking and I burned a DVD while I was encoding, while I was online, and doing something else and everything came out just fine.
