    DVD DL-related question

    Well, not final, but IB tried to burn the thing despite all these reservations, started trying, an error message popped up after a short while - the text of which I forget now - then made try number two (of 20; there was a counter), failed and so forth. I gave the thing (and that disc) up for lost on the third try. No sense whipping a dead horse. So I guess I should simply buy the right kind of discs next time..

    Right, but the next message is... and that sounds kinda' final to me.

    DVD DL-related question

    My dvd unit is an HP dvd640. I recently by mistake bought double layer discs which I realize have twice the capacity of a standard disc, and I now wonder if they 1) will be recordable in this drive using ImgBurn (I typically burn only 600-800 MB, 'shrunk' movies) and, if so, 2) will they play OK in a standard DVD-player? Thank you. PS: As the discs will (probably) be useless to me anyway I just went ahead and did the deed. First IB warned that the movie would easily fit on a normal disc which I knew already, then this message came: and this I don't understand at all. What does that mean?

    Yes, this sounds about right. I think I'll go with Verbatim - like you suggest it's hard to fail using them. Thanks for the burner suggestion. If it comes to that I think I'll go with LG as they have earned profund respect with me over the years. They have surely come a long way since the tacky image they had back in the 80's: Lucky Goldstar video machines come to mind (yes, I was around then, I'm ancient - born in '57). Again thanks for straightening me out.

    Right, thank you. I would have never figured that out by myself in a million years. Can you clue me in on how I can find these things out for myself? I mean like what type media the burner does support? Trying different brands and discarding them until I find one that works seems an unsientific way to go about it, to say the least, and would be too much strain on my so-called economy - as well as buying a new burner. Funny thing though - I have been using TDK DVD-R no problem up until just now - last week for instance. I just finished a 10-disk cake box day before yesterday. Hmm...go figure. Thanks for the reply though.

    Hi, I am a long-time user and have never had any grief from ImgBurn but with the last three disks (brand new TDK DVD-R) they have all exited early in the verify-process with Unrecovered Read Error as can be seen in the partial log-file output here (starting with the Export Successfully Completed! msg after the write) from one of the sessions: ============================================================ I 20:53:54 Export Successfully Completed!

    'Overburn' warning/error message?

    "ImgBurn can't magically make 8 Audio CDs fit into 1" Say WHAT? I want my money back then! But thanks for the CD info and, as I said, here's one (more) happy ImgBurn user.

    'Overburn' warning/error message?

    Thank you for the reply. They are indeed 'ripped' .cda files but as I don't know wether the CD player of the recipient of the copy can read .mp3 files I have to assume that it can't and so are obliged to burn them as standard CD's. Again thanks for the help. Btw, ImgBurn is such a boon and one of the very first programs I reinstall after a crash - nice work!

    'Overburn' warning/error message?

    Thanks for the reply. That's great news. There are 106 files of approximately 5MB each that make up this audiobook and they were ripped from a whopping eight CD's in the original issue. If the quality is undiminished as you say that means I can fit them all onto one CD and so save the expense of seven empty CD's now that I'm about to make a copy of the book. I'll tell you, ImgBurn just gets better and better!

    'Overburn' warning/error message?

    Hello, I am just learning to use ImgBurn to make audio CD's and as always with ImgBurn it's a painless experience; smooth sailing. I just wonder wether I get a warning if I attempt to fit more audio files onto a CD than it can hold at undiminished quality? I haven't been able to provoke such a warning even when purposely adding more files than I think will fit just to see where the limit is. Thank you.
