  1. Hello! I have been using IMG Burn forever and it has always been perfect. However, something odd has started happening when I just got a new Blu-ray burner. At first the burns seemed to go at full speed and do just fine. Then, oddly, the burn speed would continuously cycle up and down evenly (go from '0' to full speed, then immediately begin to slow back to '0' and repeat until the burn is finished) Since my new LG burner was doing that, I sent it back and got a Pioneer burner. Like I mentioned, at first the first few burns seemed perfectly normal. Now, strangely it is doing this speed fluctuation until finished. Since both drives seemed to do the same thing, I switched the SATA cable from my other DVD drive which I don't use to the new drive, and again, the first few burns were fine, but now this constant fluctuation. I'm kind of doubting that it is IMG Burn, but I have NO bloody idea what could be causing this out of the blue. The burns SEEM to finish and play okay (I can't be sure unless I play the whole disc and files after burning) but, obviously it takes at least twice as long with all the speeding up and down. Any ideas...? Thanks! Here is the log: I 14:19:59 ImgBurn Version 2.5.8.0 started!

The playback SEEMS to look okay on my OPPO player scanning through the first few minutes of each MKV file. I'm guessing that whatever is happening, IMG Burn is seemingly keeping it all together (I HOPE!) Just a weird phenomenon...

    Well, you guys are absolutely to be highly commended for doing that! ImgBurn is clearly recognized as probably one of THE most important pieces of software of all time! (well, except that cute little program that puts bunny ears on celebrities... :) Deepest respect and thanks guys!

    Oh... That must be what 'Author of ImgBurn' means... bloody Americans... Well, it is super nice of you to continue to help people. That is awesome mate!

    That's great guys, I really appreciate all the help! Kind of curious though... IMG Burn stopped being updated 5 years ago, why does this forum exist and how is it possible that really knowledgeable, helpful guys like you happen to be so handy...??? Is this just fan-based help...?

    WOW! Now, that is a great suggestion! I was not aware that there was a CMD line option to do this. I will definitely look into that. I also have a new power supply ordered; I should get it tomorrow. I have an instinctive feeling (likely WRONG!) that somehow it might be a 'Power' issue, IDK... Thank you very much for taking the time to explain and to help! Ah, got it! C:\Windows\system32>fc "C:\Freejack.1992.1080 SONY.mkv" "E:\Freejack.1992.1080 SONY.mkv" Comparing files C:\Freejack.1992.1080 SONY.mkv and E:\FREEJACK.1992.1080 SONY. MKV FC: no differences encountered I'm ASSUMING that that means the burn is okay, right? Thanks! That is a BIG help It takes roughly about 4 minutes + to compare the whole movie. HOPEFULLY, that should solve any worries on my part then... Thank you again!!!

    I DID play the first 10 minutes or so of each of the 3 MKV movie files on the disc, and they SEEMED to be okay to that point on each file...

    Hmmm... good to know! I wonder if, though, there would be a direct comparison between Rewrites and one-writes? Can one tell by the graph data above, though, if that burn SHOULD be okay...?

But, if I check the 'Verify' box and burn a Blu-ray like I normally do, and it goes through it's speed up / slow down shenanigans (BTW, after the 1.51 update it does stay at full speed for several seconds now before slowing down, as opposed to before when it upon reaching full speed it immediately slowed down) and it then verifies the burn and HOPEFULLY shows that it is okay (I've never done it or seen it, so I don't know...) then, can I assume if the verify goes well that the burn IS indeed for SURE okay...? Thanks! Okay, I just burned another disc with the 'verify' box checked.

    2 brand new Blu-ray burners burn speed fluctuating...

    Thank you kindly! I was thinking that among some other once in a while issues, perhaps the power supply needs to be replaced / upgraded. I had added a few external HDDs, but they do have their own power. The Hardware Monitor shows my PSU to be 11.8 for both Min / Max, so... But, I will definitely update the firmware right away, appreciate that! I'm going to include the graph for another burn that I did after that one; the playback on that disc is a bit wonky, BUT I am also having some trouble with my OPPO too. I'll include the graph file here if I can. PIONEER_BD-RW_BDR-209D_1.10_WEDNESDAY-DECEMBER-5-2018_2-22_PM_OTCBDR-002-000_MAX.ibg

    Sorry, I didn't see any way to 'reply' to my own topic. Soooooo.... I get an answer 5 minutes after posting requesting that I include the log and graph data, which I did. And now, the next day, nothing....??? Uh, it would be kind of nice to get an answer now that I immediately supplied the information of which I was asked, if possible please... Both the log and graph files are on my last post of the same name (except the 'pt. 2' ) Thank you!
