No Drive

Recommended Posts

Why would ImgBurn do this. I have been able to do this for the second time now since I have been using ImgBurn.

Look at the image and see that the "drop down list" is blank but the information text box show my drive. I do not know how I did this. Maybe a bug I don't know

It shows the drives as normal but the current "profile" drive as seen is blank.

Ok. Generally the issue occurs when I disc is being loaded and I press the drop down list to choose a drive.

 

Maybe you can test this and find the problem?

Can you provide a video or something showing me exactly how to reproduce it?

 

I've tried dropping it down and inserting a disc into the already selected drive - no problem.

 

I've tried dropping it down and inserting a disc into a different drive - no problem.

 

I've tried dropping it down and inserting a disc into the drive I'm changing to - no problem.

 

So it must be more complicated or timing related and I could be there all day trying to reproduce it - which I'm not prepared to do.

Hi, sorry I have been away for some time.

 

It is difficult for me to reproduce it as well. But it generally happens when ImgBurn is scanning/getting disc information.

 

Yes it has to do with timing. How many operations does ImgBurn do when it scans a disc?

 

When it is doing one of these tasks, I clicked on the drop down list and it scrolled all my drives and went blank (The text went blank)

 

So I will try make a vid just playing around with it, and if it errors again I will post it :)

Unless I'm being blind, that video doesn't show me any sort of problem.

 

I'd expect the box to be empty (and disabled) when the program is searching for devices.

Sorry, I thought that that was the original issue with the drop down list, I play around with it some more :)

I still can't reproduce this at all.

 

In any case, it's a ComboBoxEx control, I don't do anything with it except populate it at the start. I have no idea how you're making it lose its selected item text.

So you can't fix it? Maybe there is a somewhere there has to be. But why do your think it would do that? Maybe delete that one (The ComboBox) and replay it with another.

 

Or I am lucky when ImgBurn is calling a function to call/read the install disc drives and it is not being used or something. Maybe just examine the code of carefully. Or this is a problem that has been there since DVD Decrypter. I am guessing you have just touched up (gave a paint job) to the function since you have copied the code from DVD Decrypter to ImgBurn. I have no idea? This would probably be solved already is ImgBurn was open source, but I am going to stop nagging you about that because it is irritating. Hey I am just saying. Maybe it could also be the OS I am using. I tried with Windows 8 on a VM and could not recreate the problem.

 

I am getting now where with this, it might be the delay of my mouse? Aah, it will take some time I guess to figure this out.
