  1. On top of that you can just unpack the installer with 7zip and extract the exe directly and replace it that way. But yes, I've never had an install where you couldn't do it. I'll admit the offers FYI they're best to make it LOOK like you can't (a custom install hyperlink instead of a checkbox, making the disagree checkbox LOOK unselectable,...) but ice ALWAYS been able to reject any and all offers presented every single time.

    There's there's the install switches like /nocandy, temp disable internet (won't be able to push any offers to begin with) that let you disable it forcefully...

    Then there's the fact that imgburn nor the installer are responsible for any offers itself. The install is a wrapper they loads the opencandy.dll. That DLL is responsible for the presented offers. So if you want to report anyone, report the right party

  2. It's on the packaging: See https://www.amazon.co.uk/Verbatim-43738-25GB-BD-R-Printable/dp/B00DHS9F5I 2nd image above the BD logo. Those are the ones I use and if you have compatible printer, let you print DIRECTLY on the disc (eg for artwork) (50 pack spindle)

    I usually buy mine in 25pack, and look like similar to this https://www.amazon.co.uk/Verbatim-43738-25GB-BD-R-Printable/dp/B0047V04MM


    The ones you linked, look like the right ones, but are "branded" (eg: verbatim text on the label on top instead of full white)

    To be sure you have the right one's, is rather simple once you have them in possession

    Anything other than the MID's listed below is fake / outsourced

    DVD+R (x16) : MID => MCC-004-00

    DVD+R DL (x8) : MID => MKM-003-00

    BD-R (x6): MID => VERBAT-IMe-00

    BD-R DL (x6): MID => VERBAT-IMf-00

    BD-RE (25GB) (x2): VERBAT-IM1-00 <== NO LONGER BEING PRODUCED? IF you can find them, and want to be absolutely sure they are the good stuff (Verbatim nowadays outsources their BD-RE's to CMC Magnetics, cheap crap) The ONLY CORRECT PART NUMBER (above the barcode) is 97536-203 (Extremely difficult to find, expensive but worth every dime)

  3. Those are the cheap outsourced store bought cmcmag crappy life series blanks. That's your problem. Verbatim outsources their cheaper one to the lowest quality blank manufacturer there's is. You need the online only 'datalife plus' ones. And probably another drive too. 2x supported write speed is very slow. Burning too slow can be problematic by itself too

  4. Lightning knows the details. The right media are the verbatim dual layer ones, but the drive don't know. All I know it's only certain models that can do it right.

  5. 2 problems with that, overburning isn't as easy as just telling the drive to burn an ISO.

    You neither have the right drive for it, nor are you using the proper blanks to do it. One DVD DL, isn't another.

  6. Those are the printable good ones yes, but got a THERMAL printer only, as in the packaging. The ones for a normal printer say 'wide inkjet printable'. But the packaging like that is correct.

  7. That's not real quality verbatim. That's the lower grade 'outsourced cheap crap' "life series" you find in a retail store. You need the ones with the VERBAT-IMx-000 id. That's the online only and good stuff.


    Those you got, I bet you won't even make it halfway through the pack / spindle before you have your first burn failure. If not that, good chances your standalone player won't play them.

    Not according to the disc MID. CMC MAG-D03-64


    That's the cheap crap life series made by CMC magnetics. Real verbatim uses either MKM or MCC at the beginning

  9. They do outsource them. If you try to pick them up nowv(at least in every retail, web and Amazon shop I could find) they're red/silver with MID: CMCMAG-CN2-00


    The VERBAT-IM1-00 is no longer being produced. They'll tell you that if you ask them :-)


    Took me 5+ years if not more to see them again, so I didn't hesitate even for a split second when I had the chance to snap some up.


    I never had the bh/wh14. I went from 8 to 10, 12 and 16.

  10. I don't own they one either. My most recent one is the bh16ns55. Still have my bh10 and my bh16ns40 has been stored as a backup. Before that I've had the bh08 and bh12. All worked perfectly and did so on all accounts until I personally decided to retire them for a more recent and faster model.


    I have had indeed had some trouble with bd-re dl but that was the blanks problem. Not the drive.


    As you know verbatim outsourced their bd-re's, well after YEARS of searching (after they stopped producing them), I had an opportunity over at the redfox forum thanks to a member to snap some of the REAL GOOD ONES (MID: VERBAT-IM1-00!!!) up. Had to import them from the USA to Belgium, and adding item cost, shipping and import taxes I think it was about 150€/10. But damn worth every damn penny.


    I currently only have 1 in active use, and I sure as hell am not going to open another one until that first one starts to fail. The other 9 are stored in a dark dry place inside the plastic wrapper and cardboard box they came in to keep them in pristine condition.

  11. I've never had any issues whatsoever with my current and past LG drives. Combined with verbatim that's a killer combo for me. In fact I've had other brands like pioneer and Asus and they've all failed me while an LG drive purchased at the same time just kept going.


    For reading AND burning the same.

  12. I'd love to see a statement from lightning UK backing up your claim. Oh wait, you're not going to find one, because he never said it was dead. Just because something hasn't been updated in a while doesn't mean it stops working.


    Verstuurd vanaf mijn Nexus 6P met Tapatalk

  13. Most likely it's just imgburn telling the drive something like 'hey, I'll need x amount of space on that blank disc. Reserve it if there's enough, then do your thing and let me know when you're done'.

  14. There are 2 different lasers in a BD burner? Is that true? I did not know that. Why is that? Are there 2 different lasers in a standalone Blu-Ray player, one for CD/DVD and one for Blu-Ray?

    Of course it's true, Google it ;-). CD-DVD uses a red laser with a (in the eyes of the industry anyway) rather large wavelength. Bluray uses a BLUE (technically more purple) laser, with a lot shorter wavelength. And that laser color, is yup, exactly where the disc name comes from.


    Not just standalone, PC drives too.
