  1. Also, why not just load the ISO in ImgBurn?  It should surely tell you if the ISO won't fit the DVD+R you have inserted into your drive.  It should either deny it or ask if you want to overburn it, which would tell you it won't fit on the DVD+R at its current size without overburn.  So, it's, at least, slightly larger than the DVD+R size.

     

    Because I am scripting a dvd robot handler and I want to check the iso so I can load the correct disc (DVD-R vs DVD+R DL) into the burner.


  2. Is there an algorithm I can use to determine if the contents of an ISO file will fit on a DVD+R? Checking the overall file size would be easy, but I do worry about edge cases where it's borderline. Are there any existing utilities that do this from the command line?


  3. Good to know. I just verified that I did use the new cable. It's a rare occurrence, so it's not easy to test a fix. The only two other options would be to try a different cable and/or upgrade the computer.


  4. I looked up the CORRECT model this time.  :wink:  I've used that drive for many years, with a few different copies of it over those years, since it needs replacing about every 11 months.  I never encountered a problem with DVD writing.  However, you mentioned a new USB cable, which implies you've put that model in an enclosure, since that's an internal drive.  Did you mean SATA cable, the internal connection for the internal drive internally?  Or did you mean a USB cable because that internal drive is an external enclosure connected by USB?

     

    Sorry, let me explain. There are two LG drives inside a Primera 4202 Blu-ray disc duplicator. The third drive in the log is the one that's inside the computer that operates the duplicator. It's an old computer that doesn't have USB 3.0 ports. That's why the log shows USB 2.0 even though the "enclosure" can support USB 3.0. It's a single USB cable for both drives. I have not attempted simultaneous burns yet. When I get a new computer with USB 3.0 capability, I will attempt it.

     

    Considering how rare this error is and that it might be related to a communications issue rather than an inability of the drive to read/write the disc, I suggested troubleshooting by changing out the USB cable. I might have re-used the USB 2.0 cable from the old duplicator rather than use a new USB 3.0 cable.


  5. I know. I googled first before posting. I'm beginning to wonder if the solution is to change the USB cable!

     

    FYI, when the error occurs, the retries fly by almost instantaneously. It's not like it's reading a bad disc where it has to re-seek. It usually happened early on in the burn, but this one was near the end.


  6. I've been periodically getting this kind of error on my new LG burner:

  7. I'd like a way to get information about a disc to verify there is only one session and has been finalized. I was able to accomplish this with IMGBurn using the following command:

     

    "C:\Program Files (x86)\ImgBurn\ImgBurn.exe" /INFO "test.txt" /CLOSEINFO /SRC 1:0:0 /MODE Discovery

     

    I can then parse the output to verify the disc meets my criteria. Is there a better way to do this?


  8. Opencandy is part of the installer, which is what people are complaining about. They want an installer that's free of it. Now, you can avoid Opencandy by running it from the command line using the /NOCANDY switch. The problem is that people like me use this in a corporate environment and when the company's antivirus picks up the installer as a virus, I have to explain how "it's no big deal." Even though we blocked the whole opencandy.com domain, which renders the issue moot, the fact it shows up in the scan is still a problem. By extracting all the files from the installer and using my batch file, VBS file, and REG file, you can use that to do an install and avoid opencandy completely.

     

    AFAIK, there is no Opencandy code in the APPLICATION itself, just the installer.

     

    EDIT: The download on Betanews says there's no Opencandy bundled:

    Here are the hashes:

  9. Extract all the files from the installer using a program like 7Zip. Make an install.bat file using this:

    @echo off
    goto check_Permissions
    
    :check_Permissions
    echo Administrative permissions required. Detecting permissions...
    
    net session >nul 2>&1
    if %errorLevel% == 0 (
        echo Success: Administrative permissions confirmed.
    ) else (
        echo Failure: Current permissions inadequate.
        pause >nul
        exit 1
    )
    
    
    set prgf=%ProgramFiles%
    
    if "%PROCESSOR_ARCHITECTURE%"=="AMD64" set prgf=%ProgramFiles(x86)%
    if "%PROCESSOR_ARCHITEW6432%"=="AMD64" set prgf=%ProgramFiles(x86)%
    if "%PROCESSOR_ARCHITECTURE%"=="IA64" set prgf=%ProgramFiles(x86)%
    if "%PROCESSOR_ARCHITEW6432%"=="IA64" set prgf=%ProgramFiles(x86)%
    
    mkdir "%prgf%\ImgBurn\Sounds"
    copy "%~dp0\ImgBurn.exe" "%prgf%\ImgBurn\."
    copy "%~dp0\ImgBurnPreview.exe" "%prgf%\ImgBurn\."
    copy "%~dp0\ReadMe.txt" "%prgf%\ImgBurn\."
    copy "%~dp0\uninstall.exe" "%prgf%\ImgBurn\."
    copy "%~dp0\Sounds\Error.wav" "%prgf%\ImgBurn\Sounds\."
    copy "%~dp0\Sounds\Success.wav" "%prgf%\ImgBurn\Sounds\."
    
    mkdir "%USERPROFILE%\Start Menu\Programs\ImgBurn"
    cscript "%~dp0\createLink.vbs" "%USERPROFILE%\Start Menu\Programs\ImgBurn\ImgBurn.lnk" "%prgf%\ImgBurn\ImgBurn.exe"
    cscript "%~dp0\createLink.vbs" "%USERPROFILE%\Start Menu\Programs\ImgBurn\ImgBurn Read Me.lnk" "%prgf%\ImgBurn\ReadMe.txt"
    cscript "%~dp0\createLink.vbs" "%USERPROFILE%\Start Menu\Programs\ImgBurn\Uninstall.lnk" "%prgf%\ImgBurn\uninstall.exe"
    cscript "%~dp0\createLink.vbs" "%USERPROFILE%\Desktop\ImgBurn.lnk" "%prgf%\ImgBurn\ImgBurn.exe"
    
    reg import "%~dp0\EnableCDROM.reg"
    
    echo.
    echo Press any key to close installer.
    pause >nul
    

    Here's EnableCDROM.reg

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\cdrom]
    "Start"=dword:00000001
    

    I don't remember if the createLink.vbs is part of IMGBurn or I got it from somewhere else, but here that is:

    set objWSHShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
    set objFso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
    
    ' command line arguments
    ' TODO: error checking
    sShortcut = objWSHShell.ExpandEnvironmentStrings(WScript.Arguments.Item(0))
    sTargetPath = objWSHShell.ExpandEnvironmentStrings(WScript.Arguments.Item(1))
    sWorkingDirectory = objFso.GetAbsolutePathName(sShortcut)
    
    set objSC = objWSHShell.CreateShortcut(sShortcut)
    
    objSC.TargetPath = sTargetPath
    objSC.WorkingDirectory = sWorkingDirectory
    
    objSC.Save
    

  10. I'm getting a dialog box at the end of a burn saying:

     

    CreateFile Failed! - Device: '\\?\usbstor#cdrom&ven_optiarc&prod_dvd_rw_ad-5280s&rev_1.z6#000000000000&0#{53f56308-b6bf-11d0-94f2-00a0c91efb8b}'

     

    I'm including the log of once such event. If I hit "retry" it will succeed after a couple attempts. The discs seems to burn fine. This just started happening and I can't think of anything that has changed recently other than perhaps a new Windows update. I'm running IMGBurn on Windows 7 Professional.

  11. I use IMGBurn differently in standalone mode and in a script differently. In standalone, I'd like IMGBurn to work with my duplicator to pick up and load the discs. Through the scripting, I handle all of the robot movements so I'd want that disabled.

     

    Also, it would be nice to program the bins for input and output. For example, Primera has three "bins:" Left, right, and reject. The default behavior is to grab a disc from the right and output to the left. Bad discs go to the reject output, which can also be a bin. I have mine with DVDs in the left, CDs in the right, and I output burned discs to the reject bin. Other duplicators have more than three bins. (This is part of the reason why I use scripting to handle the process. I also do disc label printing, too.)


  12. The optiarc is the drive in the duplicator. I doubt they locked out the USB ports since the drives are still appearing. I'll check the Device Manager.

     

    EDIT: Opening the Device Manager threw up a message about being security restricted, but I was still able to see the devices in there. I didn't find the duplicator. but I don't see it as an administraotr either. What does it show up as on your side?
