    Imgburn or DVD Decrypter

    Thanks again - rest assured, I will be running Imgburn now from time time to do all my DL burns and I'll also check the website here from my work PC for updates as I do not have Internet access at home any more. Regards - please keep up the good work and all the best for this program and all your future work efforts.

    Imgburn or DVD Decrypter

    Lightning UK Thanks for your prompt response. I do only use Verbatim DVD+R DL media, the 2,4 times speed rated discs. Could that have been a one-off for that particular disc? I would appreciate any reposnse. BTW - have you got any other updates in the near future for Imgburn and how would we know about the release? Regards

    Imgburn or DVD Decrypter

    Many thanks for all of the replies - I will start using the program today and will post back to let you know how things go. BTW, I have just remembered that DVD D uses SAO (session at once) during DL burning, yet correct me if I'm wrong, the Write type for Imgburn is DAO only? What's the difference between the two modes, and can I still burn DL discs using Imgburn? Update I used Imgburn last night as I switched from using DVD Decrypter to burn one of my movies to DL media. I used the ISO Write mode in Imgburn to burn the ISO file that was previously stored on my hard drive from DVD Decrypter. I loaded the file in Imgburn, let the program do its thing, came back to the PC having shut down as I had set it to do so in the settings... I re-loaded the burnt disc in my DVD-ROM drive and it ran perfectly... One thing I did notice is that Imgburn took up to a minue and a half to set the Layer 0 capacity on the disc, and only after that did it fill the buffers and start writing. Has anyone else noticed this - is it dependent on the disc that is being burnt, does it usually take this long and can it be reduced, or shall it just be left to do its thing? Any replies and comments welcome... Regards

    Imgburn or DVD Decrypter

    Thanks again yet:- " Most older players probably prefer it to be set as DVDROM. If yours works ok when it's on DVD+R DL, you have no real reason to change it. That said, it's the 'norm' to set it to DVDROM. Some drives do this anyway and you (the user) has no choice in the matter. " How will I know as for which disc I should set the booktype to DVD-ROM, or leave it as +R DL - how do I choose? Please let me know. Regards

    Imgburn or DVD Decrypter

    Lightning UK Many thanks for your reply and for making a great program such as DVD D, and now Imgburn. So, from now, will I not need to select the .mds file in Imgburn to burn any previously saved images of films on my HDD from/via DVD Decrypter? Should I just select the .iso file and then let Imgburn do its job? Or shall I select the .mds file and then let Imgburn carry on from there? How will I know as for which disc I should set the booktype to DVD-ROM, or leave it as +R DL - how do I choose? Please let me know. Regards

    Imgburn or DVD Decrypter

    I only use Verbatim DVD+R DL 2.4x speed media/discs for my burning. I have already used the ISO Read/ISO Write modes in DVD Decrypter to burn my discs to Verbatim DVD+R DL discs and it has worked fine so far, with some exception(s). I thought that I was told to set the booktype to DVD-ROM to ensure maximum compatibility with other DVD players??? I have successfully backed up/copied 15 of my movies so far using the Verbatim DVD+R DL 2.4x speed media and I set the booktype to DVD-ROM and they work okay in my PC as well as my Pioneer standalone player. These do not work/did not work if I had left the booktype as DVD+R DL. Yet, having said that, I also have got another 11 copies of my movies that I've left as DVD+R DL booktype and they ALL work in my standalone Pioneer player, so what is going on? These do not work/did not work if I had left the booktype as DVD-ROM. What should I be setting the booktype setting to by default? - shall I leave it as DVD-ROM, or shall I leave it as DVD+R DL? I have also got 2 other movies that I have not backed up as yet as my rewriter needed to be replaced - I have since replaced my Sony DW-D22A rewriter with the Sony DRU-800A rewriter and have burnt one previous, failed disc as a DVD-ROM and it plays fine on my PC and the standalone player. I have yet to attempt to burn the 2 remaining discs, yet what should I be setting the booktype setting to by default? - shall I leave it as DVD-ROM, or shall I leave it as DVD+R DL? Shall I now switch to Imgburn to burn the above 2 discs and any other failed ones that I couldn't do with DVD Decrypter? I look forward to a response and any advice and suggestions that you may wish to pass on. Thanks for your help. Regards

    Imgburn or DVD Decrypter

    Hi lfcrule1972 Thanks for letting me know about this - I do not use DVD Shrink, yet thanks for the link(s) anyway. Also, is it recommended to keep both DVD Decrypter and Imgburn installed on the one PC, or shall I uninstall DVD D and just keep Imgburn on there? Are there any new tricks that Imgburn does that make the DL burns better than DVD D? Please let me know - I look forward to a response. Regards

    Imgburn or DVD Decrypter

    Hi all From reading here on the forums, I have found out all I wanted to know about Imgburn as I know it is not a ripper as it only burns image files that are previously saved on the hard drive. Yet, the one question that I would like to have answered is this:- What advantage does Imgburn have over DVD Decrypter if I want to switch to using Imgburn to burn .ISO images of films to Dual-Layer discs? Shall I carry on using DVD Decrypter or shall I switch to Imgburn? Are there any new tricks that Imgburn does that make the DL burns better than DVD D? I am using Verbatim DVD+R DL discs and a Sony DRU-800A rewriter which is brand new for DL burns - how does this combo work? - has anyone had any problems? What does Imgburn do that DVD Decrypter doesn't when burning to Dual-Layer discs? - BTW - I have also read about re-naming the DVD Decrypter .exe file to Imgburn, or something like that... What would this do, and to what advantage, and could someone please explain how to go about doing it in more detail if I would need to it for myself? Also, is it recommended to keep both DVD Decrypter and Imgburn installed on the one PC, or shall I uninstall DVD D and just keep Imgburn on there? I look forward to any responses - all are welcome... Thanks for your help. Regards
