    ImgBurn Checksums Don't Match on Some Sites

    Probably not really a "security" issue. The other sites have probably stripped out the actual ImgBurn installer and put in their own download agent. They'll serve you ImgBurn, but also probably all kinds of unwanted crap. Well, I guess one could categorize that a "security" issue.

    TSSTcorp CDDVD SH-S202J SB03 won't read disc

    Never heard of PIODATA. They make BD burners? Full height internal models?

    TSSTcorp CDDVD SH-S202J SB03 won't read disc

    I sent LG a logical, detailed, and thorough explanation as to why they needed to update the firmware for the WH16NS60 to address the DVD-R's no longer writing properly. What did LG do? They sent me a boilerplate text response saying most issues are not firmware related. I've only been goddamn beta testing ImgBurn for 15 years. It's not like I can't follow Mill's methods of observation to determine a firmware problem.

    If they're a Psychic Network...

    Why do I need to call THEM? Shouldn't they know I need counseling and call me to let me know of impending doom?

    ImgBurn v2.5.8.0 Released!

    On my Dell's, including 2 8930 XPS systems, I HAD to uninstall McAfee in order to install ZoneAlarm Free Firewall. I even had to download the FULL uninstall utility from McAfee's web site in order to remove its insidious tentacles from the system. Windows Defender has, indeed, come a long way since its inception. PC World tests place it as a more than capable AV solution now.

    AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAND the play back test, of course, failed. So, it wasn't a dying drive, but CMC fucked with the DVD-R's now so they're just as useless as the DVD+R's from Verbatim DataLife Plus. I'll try those TY's I found. They may be cheaper, but they may be actual TY quality.

    TSSTcorp CDDVD SH-S202J SB03 won't read disc

    Installed the replacement NS60 a week ago this past Saturday. Since then, I've burned a few DVD+R DL and 2 BD-R and BD-RE fine. I had my first opportunity to burn a DVD-R in it just now. No noticeable read or write speed dips that weren't explainable in either Write or Verify. The play test will be the proof in the pudding. And, of course, before, I'd get 1 good burn and then a bad burn alternately. So, I still don't know yet if it's a change in the DVD-R's that CMC made that the NS60 doesn't like or maybe I got a bad batch of discs.

    Bluray ISO Rebuild

    I can't say for sure but something must be wrong with the source because it took only 1 second, apparently, to create the Test ISO. I'd have thought a BD Video disc would be significantly larger than just a 1 second write.

    Very Slow Verify Speed

    I thought there was an option to queue image files. As long as you changed the name of the image file each time, it would queue up the entire list and then burn each one one after the other. In Build mode, under Options tab next to Information, make sure Add to write queue when done is checked. As long as you change the target image file name each time, each time you build a new image, it should queue them all in order or creation.

    Very Slow Verify Speed

    Oh, if that's what you wanted, then I think the only solution is to queue image files and burn the queue. The EZ Mode Picker option I mentioned, I think, only burns one task at a time. I don't think you can queue up anything in that. I've only used that option once I can think of, and that was a troubleshooting test.

    Very Slow Verify Speed

    As for #1, I don't really know if it's necessary or not. Couldn't hurt, though I don't think it's necessary. I don't understand what you're asking with #2. Are you asking is there a way to burn data to a disc without having to write to an image file first? If that's what you're asking, yes, there is. Under Mode, use the EZ Mode Picker. Then use Write files/folders to disc. It uses a similar interface to creating an image file from files, but instead of creating an ISO, it burns directly to disc.

    Very Slow Verify Speed

    Read speeds are set by the firmware of a drive and the read rate descriptor on the media. You may have a conflict between these two. The only fix is to update the firmware or use different discs. Try seeing if there's a firmware update for your drive. In Write mode, right click on the Destination drive letter line from the drop down list and choose the last option, Check for firmware update. Otherwise, you may want to try different discs. And, honestly, you should be using different discs besides CMC's. CMC media is the bottom of the barrel worst media out there. Try Verbatim DataLife Plus (NOT Life Series.) you can only find online. I can't guarantee you'll resolve your very slow Verify rate, but your discs will generally last much longer.
  13. As far as I know, no Blu-Ray player will play AVI files the moment you insert the disc. You have to choose them from a manually selected menu interface IF your Blu-Ray player even supports playing AVI files natively. If you want an autostarting disc, you'll have to convert AVI to BDMV folder format. ConvertXToHD is the only software I can think of that might do that, but it's not free. And I don't know of any free alternatives. ImgBurn just writes/burns what you feed it. It does no conversion. However, with a BDMV folder, you can create an ISO with ImgBurn and burn it to BD that will autostart on a Blu-Ray player.

    Blu Ray from ISO

    What you can research is to see if Encore has an option where it creates BDMV folder and files to a folder on your HDD. Then, you can use ImgBurn's Build Mode to add the BDMV folder, CERTIFICATE folder, if it exists, and any other files BD needs. You can even add the MT2 file to the ISO if you want a backup of the source file on the disc. It's what I do with DVD's I create with ConvertXToDVD. I add the source file to the VIDEO_TS folder in the ISO to burn to DVD.

    Blu Ray from ISO

    What it sounds like was happening was Premiere Pro was making ISO's but did more than just make an ISO. It created BDMV folders first and then put them into a video compliant ISO. If the M2T file was just placed on the disc, there's no way I can think of it should automatically play when inserted into a player. You'd have to manually select it from your BD player's interface. Premiere is probably making BDMV compliant folders which can automatically play upon insertion of a disc. You could insert one of these BD discs that does play automatically in a PC drive and check the root directory contents in Windows/File Explorer. There would probably be a BDMV folder. The M2T file might also be included in the root directory, but that's probably not what is automatically playing.

    Blu Ray from ISO

    Depends. If your BD player supports playing container files from a BD disc, then it will work. If it doesn't, then the file needs to converted to VIDEO_TS/BDMV folder. This BD you're making an ISO of. Is it a DVD Video or a BD Video disc? Meaning, did you make a DVD or a Blu-Ray and it was a movie? Or did you just copy the container file to disc? Or are you saying you put in a DVD/BD that had a VIDEO_TS/BDMV folder on it, you read the disc to ISO, burned the ISO, and the same contents are not on the disc you just burned?

    All mirror downloads getting flagged and removed

    You sure your web browsers are removing it and not some third AV software you have installed? It's most likely some third party AV flagging OpenCandy, a Potentially Unwanted Program, a PUP, as a virus. They're not viruses. AV companies simply are too lazy to differentiate and label everything as a virus.

    different md5 sha1 on downloadof setup

    I would always try Mirror 7 first over the others. The other mirrors are outside of ImgBurn's control and who knows what wrappers they've added around the installer to insert their own bloatware. Or even malware.

    TSSTcorp CDDVD SH-S202J SB03 won't read disc

    Hm, I've got a mystery package on the way. I don't know who sent it, but the only guess I have is that it's LG sending me my replacement WH16NS60 for my replacement NS60. They were kind enough to notify UPS to send me an e-mail saying they had picked up the package and its estimated delivery date. It originated from Round Rock, Texas. I checked the return shipping label LG sent before and it was addressed to Round Rock, Texas, which makes me more certain it's my LG replacement drive.

    Maximum number of files allowed in a folder?

    Well, the maximum number of FOLDERS allowed on ISO9660 is 65,535. I realize that doesn't help much.
  21. Then, you'll want to do what I do. I use the NS60 but in an external USB 3.0 enclosure. Most USB drives are slim line models, which are junk. So, I get full height drives and put them in an enclosure. As far as I know there are only 2 USB 3.0 enclosures to choose from: VanTech's and Other World Computing. Both have their issues, but I choose VanTech's. Just be sure you thoroughly test it. The drawback to the VanTech is it is Chinese made so you can get junk. My first one was, but my second one I'm still using.
  22. Well, good luck finding anything that burns HD DVD discs anymore. They don't make that format anymore. As for your other options, unfortunately, there's no magic bullet that works best for them all. Since you asked for a BD drive, I can recommend the one I use for all my purposes, except DVD-R and DVD+R which don't like Verbatim DataLife Plus media anymore. I use the LG WH16NS60. Also as for your other options, there's really little difference between drives in how they handle them. It boils down to the firmware in the drive and the media you use to burn it in.

    Problem creating bootable CD from floppy disk

    Most likely, it's the bootimage settings in the bootable settings in the ImgBurn job that will be problematic. I've never really fully gotten those to work in the past.

    Problem creating bootable CD from floppy disk

    Try this. Not all of that will apply to your situation, but the specifics on bootable discs might help. You'll want to extract the bootimage from the floppy drive, if allowed. I've never done it and, honestly, have had very little luck creating bootable discs from other media. If you have a capable drive and can get some media, get some rewritable DVD discs. That way, you won't be wasting media on something you haven't successfully accomplished yet.

    TSSTcorp CDDVD SH-S202J SB03 won't read disc

    Just because you don't get a coaster doesn't mean they're good. I tried 3 Ritek DVD+R DL that were sold by Office Depot years ago. They all burned and Verified fine, but, a year later, 2 of them were unreadable!
