    TSSTcorp CDDVD SH-S202J SB03 won't read disc

    Office Depot accepted my return for a refund of the Verbatim 6x BD-R in 16x packaging. They didn't want to at first, until they got egg on their faces. They looked on the Office Depot web site for the item. Take a look for yourself and check out the images associated with the item: https://www.officedepot.com/a/products/692833/Verbatim-BD-R-25GB-16X-Disc/ Notice there are 2 different images of the branded surfaces for the 16x discs. One that shows 6x and one that shows 16x! Even Office Depot can't decide what you're going to get. And notice in the production description at the top of the page and in the URL that they're supposed to be 16x!

    Write in slow speeds

    Haven't bought a CD only burner in like almost 20 years, sorry. In fact, for over 5 years, I haven't even bought a CD/DVD only burner. I only buy CD/DVD/BD burners now.

    Write in slow speeds

    So, do you know models of some CD drives that I can get low speeds (1x, 2x)?

    Write in slow speeds

    I doubt there is. Write speeds are based on a few factors, one of them being whatever the write rates are set at on the media and the write strategies in the firmware of the drive writing to that media. Meaning you probably can't get anything lower or greater than what they're set at. Unless the firmware is specifically rated to burn a media at a higher than rated rate and do it safely. Plus, it's sometimes down to the whim of the drive. For instance, a drive may return a blank has X rate on it, but won't actually write at that rate but a lower one. And it can be random when it does and doesn't do this. So, bottom line, I doubt there's any trick you can employ to get a drive to burn a disc at a lower than its lowest rated rate.

    Hello! Does anyone know any way to trick the drive so that I burn at very low speeds (1x, 2x), where the drive only burn at least 4x?

  8. What virtual drive software were you using? I use Virtual CloneDrive and don't have a similar problem. It hasn't been updated for a while, but I've been using it for years.
  9. Ok i will try on my behalf and will let you know if i succeed with the same program.

    Help required!!!!!!!!!!! ImgBurn Startup error........

    It isn't behaving itself - maybe use a different program for your virtual drive? Just keep clicking cancel until the errors go away.

    I don't buy the idea that everything evil is the Devil's fault. He's just the straw man in the argument. For the sake of arguing, let's say God exists. If he created everything, then he also created evil. If you have absolute power to stop evil acts and don't do anything to do so, you're just as guilty of those acts. It's the Nazi collaborator argument. They could have done something to stop the atrocities but didn't so they're guilty of them. It can work one way but not the other? Those who believe in God want to have it that way, too. That God is responsible for all the good things but wash his hands of the bad ones.

    The Devil's always working you know! Yeah, I just had 2 experiences where initially I got duped also, on the 2nd try everything worked out! Even with VidCoder, I initially got 45-50fps using H.265 Nvenc. I then turned off hardware acceleration in MPC-HC, and closed DVDFab which was open. I loaded up about 12 .MP4 1080p files and set them up. When I hit encode it was hitting 1100fps and 45 minutes to DTA. The results fine! So the trick I think is that when some apps are using the same source they won't use it all unless it's by itself. Wonder what VSO is up to? Tbh, I have very good alternatives to both of their proggies, except ConvertxtoDVD is still a go to for obvious reasons. I bought a y/splitter for my PSU which added 4 more sata power cables, and I inserted my external drive into my mobo. Now I'm getting 900mbs transfer! Sometimes it bottlenecks to 58mbs. I don't know why.

    You didn't happen to delete/move the source files after installation, did you? By source files, I mean the madflac.ax and libflac.dll. Regards, Thomas

    I just love how life tries and FAILS to trick me. I tried burning some left over stock of Verbatim DVD-R I kept for temporary backup purposes in my WH16NS60. The first one I tried burning in this replacement drive LG sent me. And if failed to Verify! Knowing how these things work, I tried a 2nd disc and, sure enough, it worked fine. As did the 3rd disc I tried in the same cake stack. It's actually kind of funny that after 45 years, life still thinks it can trick lil' ol' me.
  16. Strange that you had to do that. I just run the .BAT file by double clicking on it in File Explorer.
  17. 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
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
  22. 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.
  23. 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.
