Is it necessary to allow "cycle tray before verify"

Recommended Posts

LUK,

Is there a benefit to having the cycle tray before verify option selected as the default? Does this remove cached items from the OS and guarantee the data is verfified against the DVD data? What is the risk of deselecting it?

 

LUK thanks again for a great program. I have yet to burn a coaster with ImgBurn especially DL DVDs. I rarely use Nero anymore. :P :P

Ejecting the disk ensures the drive is refreshed before starting the verify process. It adds 10 seconds to the entire process so it's worth leaving on if you wish to verify the media and the files that were written.

 

EDIT: Not ejecting *may* lead to a corrupt disk and/or files passing the verification process.

It's also the only way to perform a 'real world' verify - unless of course you don't ever intend on taking that disc out of the drive ;)

 

Sometimes drives can burn ok, but after cycling the tray, they decided the can't read back what they've written and fail to initialise (internally I mean) the media. As such, no software can read anything back from the disc as the drive always says it's 'not ready'.
