    Possible to fill out a BD-R completely?

    Make a dummy file and add it to your compilation.
  3. Yesterday
  4. I’ve been searching about this without finding results. If I burn a BD-R with some space to spare, can I fill out the rest with invisible data just to make the disc evenly dark? Somwhat like how pressed BD movies are evenly burned, though the data might occupy a lot less space.

    [Help] Burning in RAW mode

    At this point in time I really doubt anyone in the universe would go after you, LIGHTNING, for adding CD RAW DAO burning support in ImgBurn. But if time travel is ever a thing I can't guarantee no lawsuits from the future, though.

    Verify after read/rip to image file

    Technically, ImgBurn does no ripping. Ripping is generally a term reserved for copy protected discs and ImgBurn won't read those to image files. Or ripping the tracks of an Audio CD to a container file. If you just mean reading an unprotected disc to an image file, then, as I said, ImgBurn doesn't check against the file contents automatically for the image file created. In the meantime, until/unless that feature is implemented, you'll have to use the Verify mode manually, load the image you just created, and load the disc back in for comparison again, and make sure the Verify Against Image File box is checked. But, you seem to already know about Verify manual mode.

    Verify after read/rip to image file

    I mean verifying the disc has been ripped correctly. It would be using Read mode because it's dumping the contents of the disc, but then it would verify (much like how the Verify mode works), except do it automatically immediately after the rip is completed.

    Read speeds

    All of these ranging read speeds were on "DVD Video" discs in that that had VIDEO_TS folders, but they were made by a Panasonic DVD video recorder. So, I had to copy the VIDEO_TS into an image file in Build mode since they create multiple sessions/tracks, I forget which. The later ones read faster so I was wondering if there was some kind of read descriptor in them that might have a higher value as they were newer discs and, therefore, had higher speeds available.

    Read speeds

    That would probably be a chipset / firmware thing. If the drive seems to be reading slowly, it could be because of it having difficulty reading, so it’s automatically slowed itself down. They can also slow themselves down if they determine it’s a video disc of some sort - so the drive is quiet and it doesn’t interfere with you watching a movie or whatever.

    USB2 or USB3

    Technically, yes
  12. Is it just me or does it seem like you get more rewrites out a DVD-RW disc versus a DVD+RW disc? I realize there are various factors involved, such as the MID and the maximum write speed, but it seems I've gotten more rewrites out of, say, a 6x Ritek DVD-RW versus an 8x Ritek DVD+RW. I was just wondering if there is actual concrete data that says DVD-RW lasts longer versus DVD+RW. Thanks!

    Read speeds

    How are read speeds determined? Are there Read Speed descriptors written to media like there are Write Speed descriptors? I ask because some of my older discs from like 18 years ago read at only like 3x speed. However, some of my later 8x discs from a few years later read at like 7x. Thanks!

    Verify after read/rip to image file

    By your feature request, do you mean check the image in Read mode of an existing disc you just made against the contents of the disc? If so, no, that isn't available. You'd have to manually do a comparison in Verify mode. If you mean after writing an image to a disc in Write mode to check the image file against the disc you just burned, then, yes, this feature is already available. In Write mode, there's a check box that says Verify.

    USB2 or USB3

    So, technically, I was right?
  16. Forgive me if this is already a feature, but I'd love to be able to select an option to automatically verify the image I just created against the disc. I don't even know if this is truly necessary since I don't know how ImgBurn works internally, but it would give me (and likely others) some assurance. Thanks for reading!

    2.5.8.0 knew how to detect usb 3.0 (as it was at time of release), but Microsoft then changed their minds on how they wanted to do things and now there’s another way to detect it. That’s what 2.5.8.0 can’t utilise. It’s purely cosmetic though and your drive / enclosure will work at whatever speed they’ve negotiated at with the chipset.
  18. Normally, I don't have difficulties. But am having a persistent problem with one disc today. It's Chuck Berry's The Great 28 CD. I've ripped with two different PCs using two different burners and the copies I've made consistently have a screeching sound for 10 or so seconds more than 1/2 way through the last track (i.e. track 28). When I play that track using the original disc, it's sounded fine to me using all drives and players. The rip to WAV of that track using Windows Media Player sounds even worse! But if I play the track using Windows Media Player (i.e. in real time) it sounds fine. So, there's something about track #28 that's evidently giving problems and I figure if I can get Imgburn to rip at a slower speed it might produce copies that play OK. Is there a way to ask Imgburn to rip at a slower speed than it otherwise would? Here are the rippers I'm using with Windows 10 PC's: Pioneer BDR-XS07S Silver 16X BD-R 2X BD-RE 16X DVD+R 12X BD-ROM 4MB Cache Serial ATA Revision 3.0 Blu-ray Burner. LG WH16NS40 16x Internal Super Multi Blue Blu-ray Disc Rewriter (OEM Version)

    Oh, I thought that feature was still to be released. Like the detection of the proper Windows 10 release version number. Shows what I know!

    It's not a limitation of ImgBurn current release. Most probably the enclosure is the culprit. ImgBurn knows USB 3.0 from 2.5.8.0 - 16th June 2013 The changelog clearly states: Added: The effective USB connection speed (1.1, 2.0, 3.0) for USB devices to the initial device scan log entries.

    It's a feature limitation in the current build of ImgBurn. ImgBurn's last update was over 5 years ago and, back when it was built, I'm not sure USB 3.0 specifications had been released yet. So, it couldn't differentiate between USB 2.x and USB 3.0. This limitation will be addressed when the next release comes out. And, no, don't ask when that will be. LUK has said he plans to get an update out "this year," but who knows? VSO said 2 years ago that ConvertXToDVD 8 would be out next year and there hasn't been any updates since. There is a speed difference between USB 2.x and USB 3.0 devices. (Actually, it's not the drive that's USB anything. It's the external enclosure it's contained inside that is.) However, if you are talking about a Blu-Ray device, it must be contained in a USB 3.0 enclosure, I think, in order to operate at anywhere near an acceptable rate to complete operations at intended speeds.

    Hello --- I just noticed this about a usb dvd drive that I connected to my computer. the unit is sold as a usb3 device, but when I check the imgburn log, it notes it as a usb2 device --- does imgburn get this info from the dev manager? NOTE that the drive is connected to a a usb3 port on the computer is there a difference in the speed for a usb2 / usb3 optical drive? info2.txt

    Blu-Ray Disc Won’t Play

    Thanks again. Much appreciated.

    Blu-Ray Disc Won’t Play

    Unfortunately, Blu-Ray conversion is not my area of expertise, unlike DVD conversion. However, I use a piece of software called ConvertXToDVD and VSO Software, which makes it, makes something, I believe, called ConvertXToHD. I believe this achieves the same function of ConvertXToDVD to DVD for conversion of containers to Blu-Ray. So, do a little research into that software. There may be free utilities that do the same thing. I know there were for DVD, but they were slower and produced much less quality results, as well as several usage problems. Be aware ConvertXToHD is paid software, but it probably has an uncrippled trial version for 7 days like ConvertXToDVD had.

    Blu-Ray Disc Won’t Play

    Thanks for the reply. What’s the best way convert the mp4 Blu Ray Movie format?
  27. dbminter

    Blu-Ray Disc Won’t Play

    Depends. Does your Blu-Ray player support playing container files like MP4 natively from a disc like a Blu-Ray? If it doesn't support native playing of containing files, that's why it doesn't work. If it doesn't, you can't put an MP4 on a disc and get it to play from the disc. You'd need to convert the MP4 to Blu-Ray Movie format.

    Blu-Ray Disc Won’t Play

    I’ve tried to put an mp4 on a blu ray to play in a blu ray player and the files are there but it will not play on my player. It says there are no files on the discs. You can see they are there and they play on a computer but in the player. Unfortunately the log got erased. I really don’t want to waste another disc to get a log but if i have to i will. I don’t know what I’m doing wrong. Any help would be appreciated
