I ALWAYS use ImgBurn to "Create Image file from files/folders".  I ALWAYS use it by dropping a folder from the desktop to the shortcut.


I have been able to find ways and settings to suppress most of the prompts but there are still two things I'd like to be able to do:


1. When I drag a folder onto the ImgBurn shortcut, I'd like it to use the name of the folder as the name of the destination .iso (the path is always set to the desktop), then just start making the image without having to press the Build button


2. Play the finished music but do NOT show the "All done" prompt.  


Is there any way to accomplish some or all of this?  It would REALLY affect my productivity a lot.

1. There's no way of automatically generating the destination image file name in Build mode.
I believe you could make a batch file to do what you want though. So you'd drag your folder to the batch file and have that call up imgburn.exe with the right parameters.

This may help... http://stackoverflow.com/questions/659647/how-to-get-folder-path-from-file-path-with-cmd

and this may do the job...

"%ProgramFiles(x86)%\ImgBurn\ImgBurn.exe" /MODE BUILD /BUILDMODE IMAGEFILE /SOURCE "%1" /DEST "%USERPROFILE%\Desktop\%~n1.iso" /START /CLOSESUCCESS

The '/START' command line parameter will auto-start build mode without you have to press the Build button.

2. The only way to suppress the prompt at the end is to have the program close itself when it's finished. That'll stop it playing the success sound too though. That's done with '/CLOSESUCCESS'.

Thanks for the help, I'll give that a try.  I would love to see the finish prompt removed with an option just like all the others (BEST options page I've ever seen BTW).  It honestly serves no purpose, especially with the done sound.  The fewer mandatory clicks there are, the better.



EDIT: Your suggested command was 90% of the way there.  I ended up making the following changes and it works perfectly, thanks a lot!


"C:\Program Files (x86)\ImgBurn\ImgBurn.exe" /MODE BUILD /BUILDMODE IMAGEFILE /SOURCE %1 /DEST %1.iso /START /CLOSESUCCESS
