x64 (64-bit) version of ImgBurn?

Recommended Posts

Any chance there is a 64-bit edition of ImgBurn on the horizon?

 

After upgrading my computer from x86 Windows XP to X64 Windows 7, my DVD ripping performance has tripled. I can only imagine similar performance gains burning when ImgBurn offers a native 64-bit edition.

It has been suggested before and it's not gonna happen for many reasons, which you can search this very section to find out what they are :thumbup:

Same OS as you and I can't say I got any turbo speed compared to 32 bit reading from optical drives.

 

The max reading/writing speeds from/to optical drives should be the same even if you use a 64 bit compiled version, compared to 32 bit.

It can't happen at the moment, period.

 

My development environment simply doesn't allow for it.

 

Not only that, there's nothing to gain from it being 64bit. The optical drive is the slowest component and it won't magically get any faster.

It may gain a little bit at creating Audio CD, at decoding phase, but not the write phase. So, no real advantage vs the time costs with creating/testing 64bit version.
