An article on Wikipedia about ImgBurn

Recommended Posts

I was reading this article on Wikipedia. I have a question about the Limitations part: are they entirely correct?

 

Limitations

 

Does not support RAW disk ripping or burning

Does not support multi-session discs

Cannot read or write CD subchannel data

Yes and No.

 

How do they define 'RAW' disc ripping?

 

RAW to me would be reading/writing 2448 bytes per sector... but that's just the normal 2352 bytes + subchannel data - which of course is covered in their third statement.

 

It's correct to say ImgBurn doesn't support the RAW write type (it only supports TAO/Incremental/SAO/DAO) and therefore doesn't support RAW burning.

 

ImgBurn can't 'Build' multi-session discs (i.e. add to a disc that already has data on it) but it can read/burn mutli-session CD's/images (from CUE or CCD files).

 

Subchannel is only used on CD's and even then it's only on CD+G and protected discs - neither of which I care about.
