Maybe look in the guides section

Thanks for the above link. . In fact I used the steps suggested on one of the posts in the forum Now I got some understanding.

I used to burn dvd data disks using Roxio Easy CD media Creator 5.0. It was accidentally deleted recently. When I create a DVD data disk with that sw, I could retrieve the data when I boot that disk. I am not able to do this with IMGBURN software. Surely I am missing some basics. I am totally in a learning process. Here is what I have done.

 

I started with about 6.0 GB of a MP3 folder as source file. I chose a destination file onto my hard drive . Here are the steps:

 

Mode - Build - browse and selected source file from hard drive

 

Output - Imagefile - browse and selected a file on hard disk- checked to verify

 

Options - ISO9660 + UDF - Recursive subdirectories

Lablels - entered same label under ISO9660 and UDF

Advanced - Date - entered todays date

Media - under single layer DVD+R/RW - under double layer DVD+R DL

Restrictions - ISO9960 - Level one - Charac. set standard

 

Finally clicked BUILD

waited for the build to complete.

I got advisory msg not to use ISO file the sw changed it to MDS

In the output directory folder I see 3 files look like the following

 

test dvd 4,194,300 kb I00 file date

test dvd-1 1,868,300 kb I01 file date

test dvd 9 kb MDS file date

 

I clicked test dvd - I got the following msg

 

Windows cannot open the file I selected Imgburn as a program to open the file

I see a Imgburn screen . How could I see my original MP3 files.

 

If it were actual dvd disc burn, I would expect to see my original directory of MP3 files when I place the DVD data disk in DVD drive

 

I do not see what I have done wrong. Could someone comment on this ? Do u suggest I should try actual DVD burn instead of Imagefile ?

 

Thanks in anticipation of ur reply.

right click on mds file and choose burn with imgburn

 

Thanks for ur prompt response. I checked . It works. I will try this next time.

I actually burnt a dvd R+ disc directly ( w/o creating an Image file) with a 4GB file source. It just worked. That is fantatic. I am excited. Right now I am playing the DVD in Real Player. With just a couple of hours of study I got this done free of cost. I thank all of you in the forum who helped me. I thank the developers of IMGBURN to have made available this wonderful product free. My next attempt will be to try a larger file say 7 GB and burn a double layer DVD. I do not know if that works in my DEll comp DVD player.

data disks are better kept around 4 gigs in size, single layer media is much easier to burn and much more relaible with a lot more burners

 

there are enough cases where you have to have dual layer, but not for data, especialy mp3's

I have a question which could be dumb. I have a dell comp with a standard DVD drive which could play sinle layer DVD R+ 's. I understand that IMGBURN sw can burn double layer DVDs. Can I burn double layer DVDs using the standard DVD drive I have or do I need to use a special external drive to burn double layer DVDs ? I would appreciate if someone could enlighten me on the subject.

 

Thanks for reply in anticipation.

time to update to a newer drive

 

 

You seem to imply that the drive I have is no good for d.layer burn. This weekend I will try to

use a different DVD drive for a double layer burn. Thanks for ur help.

The drive you have is very old and afaik is not compatible with dual layer, well last time I looked at specs for that drive it was not.

Right on Donta!

The 1100 is a single layer burner...period.

I have used one since they were new on the market and still have it in use now. I haven't found a firmware yet that can change it to DL status. It's in my server, an old 330 mhz machine, and it works great still. :thumbup:
