Today I ran a simulation because I wanted to see what it does (never used that one in any program before) and I got a disc wasted because it was finalized. While the simulation was running, the log window read there was an option "burn-proof" activated which suggests no data will be written on the disc. The disc was empty after that and yet it was finalized. That is why I'm suggesting for you to add one more option - "finalize-proof" which will prevent the finalization of the disc after the simulation is completed. Thus people like me who were just curious won't have their discs wasted.

You're confusing options and program modes.

'Test Mode' is the simulation option and finalising a disc whilst test mode is active doesn't waste a disc.
Please don't PM me with questions that should be posted in the forum. I won't reply - Especially if you have post count of 0!!!

In fact, don't PM me at all unless it's something I've asked to be told about!

Before asking questions, search the forum to see if someone else already has.

Oh, the "burn-proof" is not what you think it is. Is the acronym of Buffer Under Run-Proof.


Read here what it is for https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buffer_underrun
