Buffer never finishes filling if image is smaller than the buffer

Recommended Posts

I had an issue with IMGburn hanging and not finishing a burn. I made an image of a CD. The total image size was 28 MB. I then turned around and tried to burn that back to CD. My buffer size is set to 40 MB. Anyway, IMGBurn hangs on filling the buffer at 66% and sits there for 2 minutes doing nothing. I canceled the job. Changed my buffer to 11 MB and now the job will burn and finish.

 

 

Thanks!

 

 

EDIT: I am running the version 2.5.7 of IMGBurn.

What sort of image was it?

 

What drive do you have?

 

Post the log (copy + paste from the Log window) of either the successful or unsuccessful attempt please.

 

The problem would come from the program expecting more data than it's actually getting. Changing the buffer size would get around the issue at the start of the burn but it may then just wait at the other end of it.

 

As you can see, there's no problem with it on a standard ISO so your problem is all in the details of exactly what you were doing and what you're working with.

That's a 19MB image and a 80MB buffer.

IMGBurn seemed to image the first CD correctly (Didn't give any errors), but I had problems when trying to burn the CD (It would hang unless I turned the buffer down). After I turned the buffer down, it would hang trying to burn the CD (At the end). Anyway, I canceled it and compared all the files on it to all the files on the original and they all matched.

 

I don't have the original disk to image from, but I have the copy I made. When I try to image it, I'll get read errors on the last 10 or so sectors (I'm guessing because it never fully finished the CD).

 

 

I can't give you the image because it is someone's medical records. I have attached the log from trying to image the copy:

EDIT: And thanks for making IMGBurn. I don't use anything but it anymore (Not even Nero, which has gone downhill a lot in the past 5 years)

I tried those flash utilities and they weren't able to detect my DVD drive.

I tired a couple of different versions and none of them seemed to work. Thanks!

Weird. I connected to my work computer with Remote Desktop when I replied yesterday (I was at home) and ran that utility and it didn't find the DVD drive. I ran it today without Remote Desktop and it found it (Maybe there is something I don't know about RDP).

 

 

Anyway, I've attached a zip of the firmware that came from running the 6.0.1 version of the utility.
