Im faily new at this,i was wandering what the avantages are with burning with imgburn beside the fact that is free compared to other burners out there i never burned a dull layer the media is to expensive right now. I have however in the past burned with dvdd if it was a single layer movie and the guality was great. never made a coaster. but alot of the movies are 2 layer and i shrink them with dvd2on1, but latly i been trying "dvd shrink" with them and useing imgburn, so far so good thanks LUK. Plus im just now learning the different types of the files example vob iso iso image ifo ,ete etc, thats the hard part . thanks :)

One of the great things about ImgBurn is the queue feature which allows you to add multiple images to a list and have a user-defined amount of copies of each burned automagically. Not sure if it's in the public release (I don't think it it is), but it's in the latest beta version. Keep your eye out for a new version.

@ life the ease of use ability to auto burn w/ numerous prog's makes this a favorite
the added functionality (firmware update, booktyping etc) Set's this prog apart!

plus the author/ beta testers are unparalleled ( just don't tell them that they get big headed ;) )

all this plus the updates that were alway's forthcoming as they were needed, looks like another shortly,
is why I alway's relied on my right hand man (no jokes LOL) imgburn!!

@Shamus. Which firmware you got in on your pioneer 109. ?

And regardless of which firmware you got in, have you ever had discs failing to start to burn, ie @ about 23*-seconds it should go from leadin to write image, it even goes over a couple of minutes and is not writing anything so i have to cancel, does this with a few diff kinds of media, this is with the old program you were beta on.. just curious to see if this happened to you, thanks

Im using 1.58 i think whichever is latest.

Shamus_McFartfinger, thanks for the reply but im sorry i asked, i have no clue what any of that meant sorry :huh:


Well, instead of selecting an image and then burning it, then selecting another image and burning it - the queue feature allows you to select a bunch of images to be burned one after another. In the picture above from my previous post you can see 6 images selected. All I have to do to burn all 6 is just keep feeding disks into the drive. Once an image is burned, take the disk out and throw in another one for ImgBurn to continue. It's a snappy feature. :)

Using 1.58 also. Can't say that I've seen the problem you're having..... with either of my 109s or with that old program. The problem is intermittent?

I had this problem way back when I was using the Nec 2500 and the answer was to reduce the burning speed after I did all burned fine ,might work for you

Isn't the burning engine much more reliable than Neros?

yep the problem is intermittent, can go 20 discs without it, then bang next couple do it using various tyg02, ttg02, MCC 02RG20. the only ones it has not done this on are CMC MAG. AE1 (which i use for xbox games and divx)
Though it may be down to various usb 2 devices being added, i will find out when i re install this weekend with all usb2 external hds writers etc attached at windows hardware install.

just wondered if any other users of 109 had noticed it, it writes a small ring on disc which makes disc useless after, so it would also appear down to the way the , rather my 109 is writing leadin, the only other drive i have seen the leadin stage get stuck in is also an NEC 3540 first firmware, though i fixed that on my friends comp by reinstalling windows in her computer.

ok thanks for the feedback.

in a nutshell, yes.

hence the reason for ImgBurn . Nero falls down in many ways and one of them is its burning engine .
the burning engine to ImgBurn was tested many many times in a previous program and its reliability was honed over a few years . what you get now is the culmination of several hundred thousand forum members testing ( if you like) and any flaws was corrected at the time they was reported .
Dont be a cheapskate and buy poor quality media ,

FOR Dual layer discs use genuine Verbatims and nothing else , read this thread by LUK to see why Verbatim Dual layer DV9 thread

FOR Single layer DV5 use genuine Taiyo Yuden media everytime , ONLY TY's and not some other brand with TY dye/ink

DONT ask how to copy protected discs
DONT ask who LIGHTNING_UK is .......we only know him as .................."The Stig"
