    Error message on startup

    Thanks, that fixed it. Hope there are no subsequent side effects. Some superficial googling earlier seemed to imply it was a 'needed' file, not to be removed: http://www.processlibrary.com/directory/files/svrapi/18915/ http://www.liutilities.com/products/wintaskspro/dlllibrary/svrapi/ etc -- Terry, East Grinstead, UK

    Error message on startup

    Thanks, but I've replaced it (temporarily) with the version downloaded from here http://www.dll-files.com/dllindex/dll-files.shtml?svrapi yet the error message still appears. -- Terry, East Grinstead, UK

    Error message on startup

    Recently I've started to get the following obscure error message whenever I start ImgBurn 2.5.6.0 on this XP PC. http://dl.dropbox.com/u/4019461/ImgBurn-StartupErrorMsg.jpg But after closing that, ImgBurn appears as usual and runs successfully. -------------------- BTW, the email link in About ImgBurn doesn't appear to work. http://dl.dropbox.com/u/4019461/ImgBurn-EmailMessage.jpg -- Terry, East Grinstead, UK

    'Successful' message delay?

    No, but only because I have Default Beep disabled in CP > Sounds and Audio Devices > Sounds. Installed 2.5.5.0 and did another burn. Similar results. It's down to MEP17 I'm sure, because if I minimise that I can then click ImgBurn which returns focus to it and simultaneously displays the success message. MEP has some occasional quirky effects on other programs too! -- Terry, East Grinstead, UK

    'Successful' message delay?

    I'm running XP Pro. I did another run since my last post and made careful notes of the behaviour. This is close to what I saw on completion. http://dl.dropbox.com/u/4019461/ImgBurn-Completion-1.jpg I say 'close' because that screenshot was taken later and it differs from the original appearance in one important respect: neither window had focus (both title areas were grey). Clicking didn't return focus to ImgBurn. So it couldn't be closed or minimised. I tried removing the finished DVD at this stage but that made no difference. What DID, was that after I activated my video editor, Magix Movie Edit Pro 17 Plus (which I'd deliberately kept open) I was then able to activate ImgBurn, and the completion message duly appeared. Next time, to test my tentative conclusion that MEP17+ is behind this odd behaviour, I'll close it before I start the burn. -- Terry, East Grinstead, UK

    'Successful' message delay?

    Thanks. On the next run I minimised everything except ImgBurn (and ImgBurn Log) but the message still wasn't visible. Then I clicked the ImgBurn window and it appeared. I'm pretty sure that previously it used to pop up on top of everything else, as soon as the jingle was played? -- Terry, East Grinstead, UK

    'Successful' message delay?

    I'm using version 2.5.4.0. Recently it seems that the (very welcome) 'Successful completion' message is taking a long tme to appear. Not even sure if it would appear at all if I didn't go looking for it (Alt+Tab, etc.) Perhaps 1 minute elapses after the 'completion jingle' before it's popping up these days. -- Terry, East Grinstead, UK

    ImgBurn now top of context menu?

    Thought I'd report back with final status to close off the thread. I was right about AVS Player. However I was way off beam trying to get back in shape by hacking that second NONE entry. As I'm sure you realised, that's my main HD Drive icon. Anyway, to cut to the quick, I sacrificed a couple of days' work and did a System Restore. Happily that seems to have got me sorted. Here's a self-explanatory screenshot. http://img155.imageshack.us/img155/3497/fi...essolvedqe8.jpg -- Terry, East Grinstead, UK

    ImgBurn now top of context menu?

    I think I was mistaken about both the causes. Neither the ImgBurn crash nor the firmware upgrade are likely to have contributed to my screwed up drive entry. I'd forgotten one other thing I'd done, namely to uninstall AVS DVD Player. This had been showing quirky behaviour and I thought I'd got rid of it last night. But this morning, working on this problem, I noticed I still had references to it in some context menus. It appears to be sort of 'partly uninstalled'. Anway, to cut to the quick, it seems to be responsible for the current issue. As I got it wrong before I hesitate to be 100% sure, but I'm still working on it and the evidence seems strong. But unfortunately right now it seems that I have to keep the darned thing installed, otherwise Autoplay stops working and other consequences! And with AVS it installed, it insists on placing itself at the top of the r-click context menu for the DVD drive. This despite not even being included in the list under File Types > Drive > Advanced as you see: http://img93.imageshack.us/img93/8084/filetypes4ij6.jpg I've re-populated that from scratch, and have 'Play with Media Player Classic' as the default. (All except VLC work from a r-click; VLC plays the DVD if opened from its own file menu, so maybe I have the entry wrong in File Types.) Ideally I want to remove AVS completely, but each time I've tried has caused problems. Anyway, plainly not an ImgBurn issue, and thanks for your help. -- Terry, East Grinstead, UK

    ImgBurn now top of context menu?

    OK, thanks. I think there could be two causes behind these problems. First, I think the ImgBurn crashes I've described may have changed file association/context Settings under the Registry tab. I found that under Tools > Settings > Registry most of the following were checked. Shell Extensions ---------------- AutoPlay - Blank CD AutoPlay - Blank DVD AutoPlay - Blank HD DVD AutoPlay - Blank Blu-ray AutoPlay - CD Audio AutoPlay - DVD Movie AutoPlay - HD DVD AutoPlay - Blu-ray AudioCD Drive.CDROM DVD Open With Not sure whether these were the installation defaults? Anyway I've now unchecked all but the last, at least until I sort out the main issue of the 'DVD' drive entry. I strongly suspect this arose as a direct result of upgrading the firmware of my DVD Reader/Writer (Blue-Ray, PIONEER BD-ROM BDC-202) from version 1.01 to 1.07 It seems it's not actually totally missing, but is in fact that second entry '(NONE) Drive': http://img66.imageshack.us/img66/8904/filetypes1dp6.jpg The evidence for this is that when I r-clicked the DVD drive entry in My Computer and then clicked 'Play with Power DVD' I got the message: "This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Create an association in the Folder Options control panel." Making the assumption that this had to mean the second entry, I duly added an Action for Power DVD. And now I can play it from the r-click menu. The contents under that now look like this: http://img237.imageshack.us/img237/9133/filetypes3zz5.jpg I've no idea what that original entry 'find' is. And neither of the two entries can be edited or removed! Nor can I change the inappropriate name 'Drive' to 'DVD RW drive' or something. The only thing I could change was the icon. Also I can't remember what the other contents were. So I would like to get the original one back! The snag with System Restore is that I don't want to mess up that firmware upgrade. I suppose the next thing I'll try is to make a CURRENT registry copy with either System Restore or ERUNT/ERDNT, then try going back a bit. If it screws up, I should be able to get back to where I am right now. -- Terry, East Grinstead, UK
  12. Something odd going on here. If I r-click the 'CD-Drive' entry under My Computer, I'm now seeing 'Read using ImgBurn' as the top entry. Pretty sure it used to be 'Play with PowerDVD'. And I no longer see an entry 'Open with...' which I'm pretty sure was there yesterday. I'll look around, but any idea what can have happened here please, and how I restore normality? -- Terry, East Grinstead, UK

    Hard crashes

    A more severe problem this time. When I loaded a particular DVD+RW disc last night (a disc that was readable in my players), I first got a message like 'Getting Device Media status'. But it was still present after 5-10 minutes. so I tried to close ImgBurn. Couldn't do so, and the following message was displayed: "Terminating interface thread". I could not close ImgBurn even via XP Pro Task Manager, so was forced to power down. In case it was a temporary glitch, I repeated this after restarting, but with identical results. I'm obviously keen to isolate the cause! -- Terry, East Grinstead, UK

    Burning DVD+RW failure

    Very persuasive - duly updated! -- Terry, East Grinstead, UK

    Burning DVD+RW failure

    Thanks, appreciate that very fast reply. Pleased to report that the next attempt with a different DVD+RW brand, Tuffdisc, was OK. I'll retry other examples of the 'Datawrite' later. Thanks too for that firmware link. Always a bit nervous about messing with hardware, but I've downloaded and might pluck up the courage to give it a try! -- Terry, East Grinstead, UK
