  2. So, the disc is brand new and yes it is clean. I have tried it on 3 different DVD drives and yes, all of them give me the same error. It is not a DVD I have tried to burn in the past. I'm not really trying to burn it as I am keeping the DVD its just I want to load it from the the computer using a virtual drive so i am trying to make an image file from the disc.

    A fresh install won't do any good! I restored down the factory default partition and it still does this, so reinstalling everything won't fix this! My problems aren't as easy fixes as others. I'm constantly on the assault. There are no unique symptoms like mine! My situation is so custom no one else is going to encounter it! And I swapped in an old PC, recreated the same situation, and it didn't do it! So, the problem is this latest PC.

    Failed to Read Sectors Reason: L-EC Uncorrectable Error

    Do you have access to another computer / drive to try and read the disc in that instead? Is it a disc you've burnt in the past? If so, how long ago? What condition is the disc in? Make sure it's clean.
  5. So, I am having trouble creating an image file from a disc. I have used imgburn for many many years without a problem. I only use it to back up and make image files of personal things I make, install Cds etc.. I have also used it to make image files of some math software and I have been doing these for about 7 years now because as everybody knows, everything loads up quicker from the image file. Anyways, I tried to perform this same process from the same company that I have done other discs from but,this time I am getting an error and was just wondering what it could be. None of the other hundreds of discs I have image filed have had any copyright protection on them (that I know of) so I am wondering if maybe thats the issue? Attached is my log. Imgburn Log.rtf

    Ok so after a full shut down and startup and checking my bios, everything went back to normal. All hdds were acknowledged. I'm also restoring all my .iso to VTS folders as when burning together with their mkv, mp4 counterpart, the .iso will not play, but the VTS folder will. .iso is great for a lot of things as everything stays asis, though not for this function. I already posted my custom build here and it's future proof for a long time. So if you want you can go with that and just put a larger ATX mobo in as mine is a Micro ATX, though it'll just give you maybe 2-4 more sata ports. I'm an AMD guy so no Intel. As for that virus I had it. It's weird. You must get a z-pack because on your own you might not beat it. Lack of appetite, sometimes sweat like hell, no coughing in my case. In the end the doctor saw mild strep throat. Easy does it with the build. Scour the internet for symptoms like yours. Wouldn't a new install fresh take? You have the option now to do that. It'll put everything back in a new fresh install. Free.

    I don't really care if they're prebuilt or custom rigs. I just want shit that works. I've already got somebody else out there who might customize a rig for me. Or I may go with the guy I took my PC in for diagnostics. He did the entire diagnostics for free, so I kind of feel bad that he didn't find anything, putting him through all that time and trouble. He also sells rigs.

    Do you buy prebuilt systems or custom builds from parts. Cause if the latter I could put something together if you mention a budget. Note: I only have experience with Intel systems in that case. Can't help with prebuilt, I hate those Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk

    Well, I summoned up the blood and just worked through the fatigue to swap out the latest USB HDD for the one that used to work, restored Windows 10 1909 back to when it used to work, restored the live data partition back when it used to work, booted into Windows, did nothing else, and waited for 60 minutes. On cue, the Start menu wouldn't open! So, it's a problem with the PC. Not a BIOS issue! Not a security issue! Not a software issue! Funny enough, a BIOS update had been released since this all began. I applied that, knowing full well it wouldn't address the problem, and it didn't. So, there's no escaping it. I have to get a 2nd new PC is under 2 years!

    I am still suffering with whatever it is I have, though I doubt it's stomach flu anymore, unless stomach flu lasts more than 7 days. I still need to perform one last test to rule out it's not the new USB HDD, but I can't do it until I get enough strength to be able to lift the one out of place and put an old one in. Then, restore known good images of Windows 10 1909 and live data partition on the old device, start Windows, and wait an hour. Also, last things I needed right now to happen all at the same time: 1.) needing a new PC 2.) 2 ER visits 3.) 2 primary care physician visits 4.) my waterbed sprung a leak 5.) one of the few Christmas gifts to me under the tree this year that isn't To me From me arrived from a friend from Amazon.com damaged! It was an 11 disc DVD set where 6 of them were packaged out of order and one was disconnected from its peg, floating around inside the packaging, getting scratched beyond play.

    Well check this out, my hard drive doesn't show up at all anymore, and that's where most of my videos are. It just happened today when I went to turn on my PC. I'm going to see if it's a loose cable, if not about 300 movies are gone. I'll post back with the results.

    Can ImgBurn Work with Virtual Disc Drives?

    Probably Total Mounter. There is also Daemon Tools paid versions, but it looks terribly complicated and has a pile of 'features' I don't want as well the ones I already use in ImgBurn. All I'm wanting to do is create .bin files straight from Sound Forge so I can keep a burnable backup of product I make CD masters of in SF. I'm somewhat surprised it's not possible to render out to/ save as an image file simply because it is a nice all-in-one file instead of the pile of data that SF makes. Currently I burn a disc and then make a .bin in ImgBurn, but I'm concerned that there may be dropouts when scanning an optical disc (dust, etc.). Apologies to OP for hijacking the topic.

    Would it show up as USB3 on bootup ?

    On some OS's, yes. They changed the way it works a bit in the newer OS's though and so an updated version of ImgBurn would be required for those. It's purely cosmetic though, so don't worry about it too much.
  15. Just wondered, but beside my drive name in IMGBURN it says (USB 2.0) even though it is an external USB 3.0 drive, is this just because the software came out before USB 3 or should it show USB 3.0 ? Thanks !!

    It's half a year past its warranty under Dell. Plus, to replicate the issue, I'd have to send in one of my USB HDD's along with it, which means sending in my live data, which is too important. Plus, it would have be configured to load the Desktop folder from F:\.

    They changed 7.0.0.69 back to a Beta. It's on the forum that way. There seems to be no menu functionality when playing the DVD on your PC with whatever player. It justs plays Audio with the Menu going through all the chapters. To start viewing you need to fast forward until it starts. I posted this already and they agreed. A new update is coming to ffmpeg, and so VSO also will be updated, though I think this is more of a ConvertXToDVD issue. Can you call Dell and see what they can do? I always bought Dell, and they were just fine with service calls. No matter what anyone says, or tells you, Dell is a very good computer. You have Acer, HP, IBM, Lenovo. Then Apple. By today's standards you do have a good for the road rig. Honestly about 6 cores and up, and at least 16-32 Gigabytes ram is today an everyday solid build. I browse, download, encode, and even burn at once sometimes like a baby. I loaded up with 32GB Ram. I'm going to add 2 solid state drives as I just noticed there's room for them. I have one NVme ssd and room for another, though only one at a time will be available. I only have 4 sata ports. I forgot it was a Micro ATX board. Maybe it's not such a bad thing with the drive issue. Figure out your best fix, and if it's possible just start looking to upgrade. My last PC was basically new user wise. With Windows 10 it became almost passable after I got rid of the burners. Two almost new burners! An Asus and a Samsung, or Pioneer and Samsung. Hence this post. Did you hear the rumors about an anniversary updated XP OS by Microsoft? I would hop on that in a second.

    Many Thanks ImgBurn is much quicker

    Well, not that I'm defending Freemake Video Converter, because it has a lot of problems, it is converting from one video container format to another. That's where the long time comes in, particularly on the so called "free" version. Which watermarks the video so how useful is it? ImgBurn just burns what you feed it. It does no, and cannot do, any video conversion.
  20. Many Thanks to ImgBurn for being much quicker than lots of other free or even paid for software. I'm currently (after not using ImgBurn, or other DVD burning software for a long time) resorting to attempting to burn some non-commercial DVDs on a public PC (my local library) as my current PC (Lenovo All-In-One) is in need of being repairand. One piece of software recommended is/was FreeMake, but it (and other free cr*p) takes and age to re-encode then burn ( (between 2 or 3 hours!). Why does this happen when ImgBurn does the same in like 10 minutes. Thanks again. CAR67

    It's NOT a security issue! It happens on 2 different drives that were working fine before. It doesn't do this on my old PC. So, the problem is with the PC. It's not solved by deleting everything and start from scratch. Tried that. 7.0.0.69 is the last Gold release of CXD. And I spent all afternoon into the evening in the emergency room with apparent stomach flu. Really hit me first hard yesterday, but today, my first attempt to eat something, caused uncontrollable shaking. Last thing I need right now.

    Yes I saw your post just now at VSO. Just try to upload that VRO File using that new tool Maggie posted and see what happens. Whatever is happening with that drive is certainly more probable a security issue. Have you went into the whole drive and given full security control to yourself etc... so that the drive can be accessed? You just said it's that drive so it's not your PC. What do you have on that drive anyway? Can you just delete everything and start from scratch? I've never had an issue with Acronis, though I only used their Cloning function to make an exact clone and bootable drive after my primary. Mini Partition Wizard is too convoluted with all their colors etc... and the only thing I ever did with them was partition my Cellphone SD card. I think I used Macrium a very long time ago and it didn't take. I don't know how far they have come as of today. There's not too much help over at VSO, so that's why things don't get tackled right away. That 7.0.0.69 is a Beta and not a Gold release.

    How to create a blu-ray ISO image?

    How to finalize the engraving of a blu-ray?

    Hum !!! I bought 25 MediaRange discs to burn !!!

    How to finalize the engraving of a blu-ray?

    Try something other than MediaRange BD-R DL. Like Verbatim BD-R DL. When using dual layer media, the only reliable stuff used to be made by Verbatim. CMC bought up Verbatim so it's hard to say much anymore. Near as I can remember, MediaRange is a no name manufacturer so their discs are cheap. Cheap media often times aren't recognized by players.

    How to finalize the engraving of a blu-ray?

    Yes, burn to Blu-ray Disc MediaRange BD-R DL 6x 50GB. Yes for a Blu-ray player read for television. My BDMV and CERTIFICATE files were created with Studio 22 Pinnacle.

    How to finalize the engraving of a blu-ray?

    By engrave, do you mean burning a BD-R? By lounge, do you mean a Blu-Ray player? If so, ImgBurn should automatically finalize discs for you. If a Blu-Ray player isn't playing your BD-R movie disc, it could be a variety of things. Either non-compliant BDMV and CERTIFICATE folders made by the program that made them or your player doesn't like the BD-R's you're using and doesn't recognize they've been inserted.
