    LOL I like that one!!!

    Anyone know how

    Sorry, it was always available for me so I assumed it was for everyone! It's enabled now and should be pretty obvious how it works

    Plextor PX-708A

    Why not go for a 4550 / 4551?

    Separate burning speed for DVD & CD

    I know what you mean Moe but I don't think that would work too well in practice. It's obviously simpler from my point of view to just add another drop down box, but that then clutters up the GUI a bit. It also then brings in the possibilty of people accidently changing the wrong box for the media they're burning. If I was to combine them into 1 box via code and display the right box depending on the inserted media, people are bound to change the value with the wrong media in the drive, eject the disc and insert the right one, only to find the speed they'd selected had vanished and been replaced by whatever they last selected for that media type. The speed for the other media would then also be wrong. I hope you see where I'm going with this

    CD Manufacturer ID?

    A quick snoop of cdspeed shows that there's is no easy of doing it. By that I mean it's not like DVD which actually stores the ID (in a readable format) on the disc, it's just a bunch of numbers (Which is exactly what Wesociety said earlier). I'm not one for building databases into my programs as they always go out of date and I may not be around forever! lol

    Maybe invision switched from using " to terminate strings, to using '. It is a different version of the forum software and I believe it was quite a big overhaul.

    DVDD SAO/packet vs ImgBurn DAO/incremental

    Incorrect naming on DVD Dec's part, that's all.

    Crazy Bug!

    You may be better off talking to vso about this. Try to find out what they're doing their end that could be causing it to interrupt the burn process.

    EAccessViolation error when starting ImgBurn

    There are a couple of differences if you use NT4 and the SPTI I/O manager. Shouldn't be anything major though, and leaving it without that compatibility setting certainly shouldn't crash things! Turn that thing off again and try to start the program whilst pressing down the F7 key. That'll disable all the I/O stuff and it may offer more clues!

    BlueScreen

    NT4 SP6a, no problems here I'm afraid. If you can find a memory minidump or something, I could probably tell you which driver is causing the bluescreen. Apps themselves don't generally kill things in that way.

    BlueScreen

    I shall check it under NT4 now!

    Crazy Bug!

    Are you using the patin-couffin I/O manager? If it really does happen the second you close the app, I can only guess divxtodvd is doing something weird with the drives that interrupts the burn process in a way that the burner can't recover from.

    Burning Dual-Layer

    To test if ImgBurn can find the layer break position properly, load the image up via the browse button or whatever. Then right click on the value of the 'sectors' info in the source box. You should get a context menu pop up mentioning something about layer breaks.

    There's always a trade off with those smilies! If you put ' around the code, you can't use ' in the smilie - which that little crying fella does use. If you put " around the code, you can't use " in the smilie. Don't think there is anything I can do

    Simple new features

    Hiding my program so people don't know it's being run is not something I'd ever do.

    LUK

    lol thanks, I do try
  19. You use the /SPEED CLI switch to set it at runtime, or don't specify that an it'll use the last one you selected.

    Blindwrite image format

    Do people use blindwrite for simple ISO type images? That's all the burn engine really supports at the moment. I tend to associate BlindWrite with complex images - usually incorporating some form of protection etc.

    Sony dvd's

    Yes, they'd only write at 6x as well. So if others truly burn faster (in ImgBurn or DVD Dec), it MUST be drive/firmware/media issue.

    ISO versus MDS

    Memorex are probably ritek. Stick with verbatim DL discs, nothing else.

    Sony dvd's

    Nero doesn't display the real burn rate. If it allowed you to, you could set the burn speed to 100x and it would say it's burning at 100x. Being that 6x isn't even a supported speed... (and that comes directly from the drive) .... I can only assume it's starting the burn at 6x with the idea of jumping to 8x later on in the burn - as in Z-CLV style or whatever it's called. Then as time goes on and it gets to the point where it's gonna jump to 8x, it's deciding - no way, 8x will make an awful burn! - and is sticking with 6x. I've not checked but are you on the latest firmware for that drive? If the buffers are full, the program is sending data to the drive as quickly as it's accepting it. It honestly cannot possibly be burning any quicker and the drive is causing the hold up.
  24. LIGHTNING UK!

    Sony dvd's

    The only way in which the program could be limiting the burn to 6x is if the buffers are always on 0% or fluctuate A LOT! If that's the case, it has become impossible to burn any faster - probably due to some configuration issue with your PC. Other than that, your drive is slowing down the burn on purpose so it doesn't create a coaster. That's done by the drive OPC stuff (be it Active OPC, Walking OPC etc).
  25. The program that creates the image is reponsible for that stuff. It can't be done once the image has been made. Image burning tools are dumb, they shouldn't even need to look at the data in the image (I do a little bit), so there is no way to check for 32k spacing.
