    The write speed graph looks like a Nec (Optiarc). The verify (read) speed is never above 6x. Seems to be an issue. Sure it's on 'MAX'? Never had/or have Daemon Tools installed? It's a LG GSA-H55L firmware latest v1.06. Never had Daemon Tools....of course have alot of item loaded on this PC, codecs, including CCCP, Pinnacle, etc. for audio & video editing. Overall it seems fast enough for me...it's an 3Gh Intel P4 with XP SP3 with 4GB RAM...I walk away at Burn and Verify and come back. I'm willing to trade-off a little longer cycle tiem for more reliable burn. I use Verbatim DL Singapore only DVD+R and for SL Verbatim DVD-R....haven't found Singapore made but Taiwan seems OK.

    OK...so I tried my "new" process for DVD backup. DVDFabHD Free to HDD Nero Recode to HDD to fit to SL size ImgBrn Build/Write/Verify Burnplot to look at graph My IBG file name came out: enemy_at_the_gates_2009-07-10_4-03_PM_12x.ibg {Very Helpful} However, when I open the IBG file with Burnplot it is too bad that the Volume Identifier is not displayed....is it not in the graph file or does BurnPlot not pull ? Here is my trial test.....what do you think ?

    Thanks......I'm just wanting to see the volume identifier (title/movie name) when I bring up the plot...the day/time really doesn't help....especially over time. You say there is a way for ImgBurn to output this to thr graph file ?....can you tell me where/how ?...still kinda a Newb. Also, you may want to put a rev # on your download postings....will help when someone takes a quick look to see if they have the latest.

    Is there any way to show the disk label ?...is this even in the graph file ?....if not perhaps ImBurn can add ? I ask because I'd like to keep my plots for reference down the road and the IBF name of Burner-Day-Time does not really tell me anything. Obviously, I could rename the file but if this could be included in the display of Media info would be nice.

    What is the bottom graph versus the top on my BurnPlot/ImgBurn graph ?

    Please translate.....why ? Thx. I'm willing to learn...actually reasonably technical guy....just need a quick guidance of what the plot means. My goal is to look at these plots and say...."Yup or Nope....Burn went well and the disc should be OK for playback, or Coaster and Re-Burn." What are the two graphs themselves ?....what is the 2K, 4K, etc. on right of first graph ? How/Where do I see errors, etc ?

    Thanks...found it....downloaded, ran and loaded a IBG. Have no idea what I'm looking at...... I attached PNG output of plot from BurnPlot.....any translation would be appreciated !!! I'm just trying to ID whether my burns went/go well on the disc (Verbatim SL DVD-R or DL DVD+R Singapore) without having to run the full movie in the Home DVD player.

    Where can I download BurnPlot ?...I don't see it on the ImgBurn download page. Also, any quick tutorial on how to interpret the graphs ?

    Image Quality Of A Burn ?

    What is the best software....within ImgBurn (eg. Verify) or other to determine if a movie backup DVD burn is good without having to play on a DVD player the entire movie ? I have Neros' DVDSpeed that has Quality Test and Scan Disc but my Burner is a LG Burner and only BenQ and few others...not LG. I recall some software on a thread within this Forum but can't recall it. I'm trying to keep it simple....burn....test....go. Any help in advance is much appreciated !!!!

    Image Quality Of A Burn ?

    That one can show if the burning is somewhat ok or the graphs are jumping around to much depending on a crap burn. You can attach it to a posting window here. The bad disc I did with Recode.......but you mention graph data....I assume if I use Recode for SL future efforts to disc, then ImgBurn or ImgBurn for DL.....this generates a graph ? If so, how do I read the graphs on the burn at that point and interpret ? Thx.

    Image Quality Of A Burn ?

    I don't have a BenQ...I have a LG GSA-H55L burner....thus Nero DriveSpeed I don't think does me any good. I have a SL disc that glicthes on DVD player and ran Verify on it in ImgBurn and it came back OK....I know there is issues. I did have to burn useing Nero Recode because I took a IFO/VOB folder that was just over 4.7GB and put/recoded to SL disc....kept about 95% quality. Anyway, I stated this because unfortunatelty I cannot use ImgBrun all the time when I need to recode down to a SL disc...I'm a newb...perhaps I'm missing a way ? I ask because I imagine Verify works better at burn time so it can compare. Thoughts ?
  18. OK.....techy person who has used Nero Recode in past. I've picked up ImgBurn and will be happy to contribute to the cause if I can get this working. I'm trying to burn DL (SL works fine) DVD disc using LG GSA-H55L (fiwmare 1.03) DVD+/-RW with FRY's Electronics RICOHJPN-D01-67 DVD+R DL discs. My issue is that the discs hang on what I think is the dual layer break at 1:16:51 into Apocalypto. I'm using/following the http://forum.imgburn.com/index.php?showtopic=1780 guide and the HDD VOB/TS files work if I use SL compressed to about 90%. My player is a Sony DVD DVP-NC85H/B Carousel player. I've tried different burn speeds down to 4X....and have tried in Nero Recode 2, DVDShrink with Nero Burining ROM, DVDFab with Nero, VSO and ImgBurn...all the same freeze. I'm now trying to focus on ImgBurn (like it alot since trying all this). I've burned 15+ discs with alot of combos of the above...all hang same place. Oddly my PC WMP11 will play thru this some times on the LG DVD Writer and always on the LG DVD-ROM drive. I don't think these are BAD discs since th error is same place....but wondering if my player does not like the DVD+R DL for compatiblity from a layer break standpoint ? Should I try DVD-R DL ? Also, I've selected the same layer break option presented to me in ImgBurn during build/burn.....don't know much about padding but should I go to the one before it and try ? I've tried combos of "seemless layer break" ON/OFF but so confused now not sure clearly what I may have missed. Any ideas on what to try is greatly appreciated !!!!!!!!!!!!!

    DVD+R DL Burns Hanging on LB

    Wow...did a read on one of the discs that ImgBurn did that worked in WMP11............. Is this what you mean by bad disc for LB ? Strange that WMP11 will run thru it and ImGBurn sees errors and Sony Player hangs...normal ? I 18:14:05 ImgBurn Version 2.4.1.0 started! I 18:14:05 Microsoft Windows XP Professional (5.1, Build 2600 : Service Pack 2) I 18:14:05 Total Physical Memory: 2,096,412 KB - Available: 1,437,664 KB I 18:14:06 Initialising SPTI... I 18:14:06 Searching for SCSI / ATAPI devices... I 18:14:06 Found 1 DVD-ROM and 1 DVD

    DVD+R DL Burns Hanging on LB

    Wow...thanks as author chimming in....really appreciate it !!!! Going back to FRYs tommorow to see if they'll take these discs back and credit me. I'll see if they have the Verbatim DVD+R DL Singapore there. Do you really burn them at 2.4X like the box says ? Your comment on quality for LB holds true even when my PC using WMP11 does not hang on these discs and the Sony Player does ? Also, should I install DVDInfo Pro ? Will it help tell me or show me if these discs are bad or have errors at the LB ? BTW...really like ImgBurn. Soon as I get this all sorted out I'll contribute to the cause. I'm a longtime HTPC user.....many forum member.....think good software should be rewarded/promoted.

    DVD+R DL Burns Hanging on LB

    Well, last thing (variable) I tried is to set the layer break one item earlier in case there is some issue with little-to-no buffef before the change that perhaps my player is getting hung on...also went down to 2.4X. No luck, PC plays fine now........Sony DVD Player still hangs on LB. Any ideas ? This was done with both ImgBurn "Seemless LB" On & Off....no diff.
