I'm in the middle of burning discs for a season of a tv show and the previous ones have worked out fine but this one has been stuck at 50% for like 2 hours. Any help would be great thanks!

Sounds like your machine / drive got stuck.

Kill the power to the machine and try burning it again. (Yes, that disc is a write off)
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!

You might also want to try switching the discs you're using.  CMC makes the worst discs out there.  It might be you got lucky in your previous discs had no problems but this one did cause a problem.  That was my experience with CMC.  50% of them worked and 50% of the 200 disc cake stack failed to either burn or verify.

You may also try the latest version of ImgBurn as yours is way too old.

You should not live in the past anymore!

Current supported version: ImgBurn Get it while it's current!

Also, visit the site of: FIRMWARE HQ for drive update.

Oh, wow, I didn't notice that. was released way back in 2013, so your version is about 5 or 6 years old.  Yeah, you'd better update.
