Burning an ISO

Recommended Posts

Q: How can I force IB to burn the first layer on a DL full(most) and the remaining on the second layer?

 

Before burning a vid/data disc I make an ISO first after removing the locks when necessary. For burn convenience only.

 

Burning an ISO about 7gb on a DL , the data is auto splitted by IB almost exactly in the half.

3.5gb on first layer and 3.5gb on the second.

 

Have done some experiments and reading in manuals but unable to succeed or find any other usefull info, exept for a new build.

 

Any advice welcome.

May I ask why do you want to do that? Don't get me wrong, it's just that 50/50 (or close to this) dual-layer discs are more compatible with reading devices than say 80/20 :)

You can pick the cell that is most "warped" in the layer break dialogue. Or split the cells after the ones offered with VobBlanker or DVDRMP to enable a bigger choice of cells at which to break.

 

There are some benefits of writing more on layer 0 - for one the PIE/PIFs on L0 are usually much less than those on L1. However, these can be, and often are, outweighed by the risks of writing too close to the edge of the disk. As well, the write time will increase as L1 is padded out.

The other way is to make an ISO and force the layer break position via the option in the settings before burning in Write mode.
