    Distorted image size

    It's like when I first started burning DVD's in 2002. It would take a full hour to burn an entire DVD-R's available space. And, back then, it was fairly common to get to 99% and THEN fail, wasting 60 minutes! The long processing time is another reason I didn't stick with DVD Flick. I use ConvertXToDVD.

    Thanks for that. I don't know what to look for in DVD Flick. I made several discs with no problem, then several that were squashed on the sides, then a good one, and now bad ones again. Discs aren't that expensive, but after spending an hour or more waiting for the result...it's frustrating.

    Distorted image size

    It's a DVD Flick problem. It's known to have issues. If some have a correct resolution display and some don't, it's down to how DVD Flick authored the video. ImgBurn has no control over how DVD Video resolution appears on screen.

    I'm using DVD Flick to convert video MP4 files for use on a DVD player and it automatically starts ImgBurn to create the DVD. I'm using Win10 and all software is current and up to date. Some work correctly, some of the videos are squashed on both side and elongated, they don't fill the screen. I don't know if it's a DVD Flick or ImgBurn problem and what to change. I don't think I've changed any settings on either program. Does anyone know why some DVDs have the correct, full screen display and others don't? I'd provide the log but don't know where it is...

    DVD burner age

    Yeah, that was it. I was going by fuzzy memory as it's been over 5 years since I last had a LiteOn drive, and that was a BD burner that failed after 3 BD-RE writes. So, I stopped getting LiteOn after that.

    Some liteon drives remember how many discs they’ve burnt. Just dvd and bd though, not down to mid/did level.

    A Christmas Carol by Tom Lehrer

    Time for my somewhat annual Christmas song quote. I've gone through pretty much everything, so I've had to dip back into oldies. However, this time, I've got the full A Christmas Carol by Tom Lehrer, including the spoken word pieces at the beginning and end. One very familiar type of song is the Christmas carol. Although it is perhaps a bit out of season at this time. However, I'm informed by my "disk jockey" friends - of whom I have none, In order to get a song popular by Christmas time, you have to start plugging it well in advance. So here goes. It has always seemed to me after all. that Christmas, with it's spirit of giving, of us all a wonderful opportunity each year to reflect on what we all most sincerely and deeply believe in. I refer of course, to money. and yet none of the Christmas carols that you hear on the radio or in the street, even attempt to capture the true spirit of Christmas as we celebrate it in the United Staes. That is to say the commercial spirit. so I should like to offer the following Christmas carol for next year, as being perhaps a bit more appropriate. Christmas time is here, by golly, Disapproval would be folly, Deck the halls with hunks of holly, Fill the cup and don't say when. Kill the turkeys, ducks and chickens, Mix the punch, drag out the Dickens, Even though the prospect sickens, Brother, here we go again. On Christmas day you can't get sore, Your fellow man you must adore, There's time to rob him all the more The other three hundred and sixty-four. Relations, sparing no expense'll Send some useless old utensil, Or a matching pen and pencil. "Just the thing I need! How nice!" It doesn't matter how sincere it Is, nor how heartfelt the spirit, Sentiment will not endear it, What's important is the price. Hark the Herald Tribune sings, Advertising wondrous things. God rest ye merry, merchants, May you make the yuletide pay. Angels we have heard on high Tell us to go out and buy! So let the raucous sleigh bells jingle, Hail our dear old friend Kris Kringle, Driving his reindeer across the sky. Don't stand underneath when they fly by. Actually I did rather well myself, this last Christmas. the nicest present I received was a gift certificate "Good at any hospital for a lobotomy". Rather thoughtful.

    DVD burner age

    Now I could have imagined this, but I believe ImgBurn had the ability to store how many of a specific DID were burned by a specific drive. However, it only worked with specific certain models of burners.

    Nimbie and incompatible medium installed

    If it doesn’t just work (auto reject after a while or whatever), it probably wasn’t something I’d considered during implementation. Perhaps I’ll revisit the code and improve things in this area.

    ImgBurn can show you how many discs has burned since install. Go to Help> ImgBurn Statistics... Other than that I don't know.

    Is there software which shows DVD burner age and/or how many disc has burnt?

    can an ISO contain multiple bootable files?

    @James352 I'm not sure what you really want to achieve but from what I conclude from your description is that you want to automate the install of a bunch of programs launching a single file. You can create a .cmd or .bat file and point to each program you need to install. Put that file in the same folder with the .exe or .msi you have and just execute the file you created. To be seamless/unattended you need to know the silent switch commands to all the programs you put in chain. You can also do copy files to certain location or import .reg settings you need. You can learn more here http://unattended.sourceforge.net/installers.php Here is my silent install of ImgBurn .cmd file. Open it with Notepad or any text editor to see the structure. The first part is to get the admin privileges that you can start to install any program. I modified it to add some more programs (Adobe Reader DC and WinRAR) to the list before the exit line, like so, you can add more. Don't use spaces in the path or you need put them between quote marks like "Path to the program.exe" Install ImgBurn_x64.cmd @dbminter @LUK! You should give a look at Ventoy https://www.ventoy.net/en/index.html
  15. Hello I'm using the Autoloader library of Imgburn for Nimbie. Is there a setting for Imgburn that rejects automatically a disc and gets the next disc in case the drive can't initialize a DVD? I'm getting an error incompatible medium installed and Nimbie is simply waiting. Thanks in advance.

    can an ISO contain multiple bootable files?

    I think it actually just copies the iso as-is to a folder on the usb somewhere. Meaning you can just keep adding boot options (bootable iso) until all the space has been filled up.

    can an ISO contain multiple bootable files?

    I hadn't thought of using anything like YUMI or Rufus to put Acronis rescue media ISO's on flash drive. I no longer use the application, but I have several 10 to 20 year old backup sets still in my possession. Acronis does release latest updated rescue media ISO's on Softexia, but you can't edit those ISO's to inject files into. So, I can't put Acronis backup sets on DVD's with the rescue media ISO. But, I could burn the ISO to flash drive and have that drive's free space. Does YUMI use all available space when writing an ISO to flash drive? The drawback I found to Rufus for burning ISO's to flash drive is if the ISO is 1 GB and the flash drive is 16 GB, the resulting ISO burned to flash drive leaves you with a 1 GB flash drive and 15 GB of unallocated space. I could, I suppose, create a 2nd partition on the flash drive with the remaining 15 GB of space, but I'd prefer a situation like when Macrium Reflect creates Rescue Media on flash drives. As long as Reflect doesn't have to format the flash drive, it will leave all extra space available on the single Rescue Media partition. If it has to format the flash drive, it creates a 1 GB bootable flash drive and the remaining 15 GB is unallocated, requiring creating a 2nd partition on the flash drive. I'd like to avoid having to create a 2nd partition.

    can an ISO contain multiple bootable files?

    To be honest, I’ve only seen it recently and used it once! I used it to stick the acronis rescue disc iso image on usb. I think it allows you to put a menu in front of a bunch of bootable iso files and pick which one you want to load.

    can an ISO contain multiple bootable files?

    Is that what YUMI does? I've seen it many times passing through websites, but never knew what it was for, beyond something to do with flash drives.

    can an ISO contain multiple bootable files?

    Try the YUMI route... on a usb stick. https://www.pendrivelinux.com/yumi-multiboot-usb-creator/ If you must stick with an optical disc, are your programs just DOS EXE files? Boot a DOS image via floppy emulation, make sure it loads optical drive drivers / extensions and then access the rest of the disc that way.

    can an ISO contain multiple bootable files?

    When you say "multiple bootable files," I am guessing you mean can an ISO have multiple bootable sectors. And as far as I know, a bootable ISO can only have one boot track. Although, technically, you could extract, say, 10 boot sectors with ImgBurn as "files" and store those 10 files in an ISO, but they wouldn't do you much good. They wouldn't boot, just reside in a track in the ISO separate from the boot sector. I don't see a way to automate this, but what you could do is try this. You could make ISO files of these 10 installable discs and store those ISO's on a DVD/BD. You can then navigate into them from the disc natively via Windows and run the installers from them. Or copy the contents to a temporary location for execution. However, as I said, you probably can't automate this process. And each time you navigate the contents, you're mounting the ISO as a virtual drive, so you'll need 10 available drive letters, unless you Eject each one after each installation. So, the downside side, each installation must be performed on its own one after the other and I don't think it can be automated. And, I'm not entirely sure this process would work as I describe it. It's theoretical at this point, but it might work.
  23. hi everyone. I did some research and I'm not able to figure out the following: I have about 10 programs I regularly install onto machines for people. I am trying to mount an ISO containing multiple programs, but I dont think there is logic to allow multiple programs to boot when mounting an ISO. for clarity, I am trying to create an image on a drive that contains say.... 10 programs. The goal would be for all 10 programs to install when mounting the file. It doesnt seem possible as each program needs to finish installing before the next one can begin. any thoughts or experience with this? Maybe I need to look more into cloning the C: drive onto a virtual drive vs. taking the ISO route?

    ProgressBar in TaskBar on Windows 7

    No, there is no option to control it.

    ProgressBar in TaskBar on Windows 7

    Is there a way to turn it off on Windows 10? It keeps the taskbar autohide from hiding.
  26. I can't see anything that would make it do that, no. Best you could do is make a batch file that you drag + drop the folder on to, which then calls ImgBurn with the appropriate command line instructions.
  27. I'm creating multiple ISO files which contains only a folder, is there a way for Imgburn to automatically create the output files in the source directory? I have to manually change the output path every time I create a new image file. Is there anything like {source}/imagei.iso or %source%/image.iso placeholders? thanks.

    Copy + Paste the contents of the ImgBurn log window once you've got that verbatim external drive connected.
