Hello ImgBurn community I hope this hasn't been asked before (I scoured the forum to see) but I need help automating my ripping process.


My goal;

Rip DVD to ISO on insert of disc



Using /SRC switch in CMD


So I have multiple drives and am using DVDfab Passkey (similar to AnyDVD) to decrypt the DVDs and using the program to launch ImgBurn with the following:


The problem lies in the /SRC switch as I am unable to select multiple drive letters and using the pipe | to divide them doesn't work.


There is a /SRCLIST only works in build mode (and for files/folders not drive letters).



How can I pass an argument to IMGburn as to drive source.


Am I going about this all wrong? Can I accomplish my goal with a batch file?


Thank you,

It has to be done using multiple instances.

So /src with a specific drive letter.

/outputmode doesn't apply to read mode, it'll only ever spit out an image file.
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!!!

Replies to posts belong in the forum where everyone can read them. Please don't PM them.

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.

Use the FAQ and Guides forums to your advantage. I don't want to have to tell you to read them!
