  2. It usually means the write didn't complete correctly. There can be cases where a write is fine but the reading capability of the drive is what is at fault. It's rare, but it can happen. However, as I said, it usually means a write failed to burn correctly. What I never understood is how a write can complete but not complete correctly. At this point, since you're using the good Verbatim BD-R stuff and since you've tried using a replacement of the same model of a USB drive, I would try using an entirely new BD burner, different make and manufacturer. I've never used anything from TSST Corporation before so I don't know how reliable they are. Since you've tried using the same model twice in a row, you can pin it on the drive itself. Since this is a new replacement, I am guessing you used the USB cable it came with, so we can rule out the cable being an issue. If you haven't tried yet, you could try it on a different USB port to rule out a bad port. And since they're failing at the layer break, it's a common place for bad burns to fail at. I've also never used DL BD-R media so I don't know if Verbatim's are reliable or not. I know some BD burners simply aren't up to snuff for DL BD burning. For instance, though it writes to BD DL media, the LG WH16NS40 doesn't do it correctly and never has. The WH16NS60 does, though. I had a BD burner once that failed out of the box to write to DVD+RW and BD-RE correctly. It actually DESTROYED those discs! So, I got a 2nd model of the same unit, in case mine was defective. It did the same thing, so I knew that ASUS model was the culprit. It was bad by design.
  3. Well, the second blu-ray drive came and I have managed to burn the remaining dics, but out of six completions there were about 20 fails. I am curious WHY these types of errors come up when verifying the disc, does it mean the disc didn't burn correctly?

    Major Geeks - download detected as malware

    Well, it's been a long time since I've "logged in" as I have remember options and use my web browser's auto fill functions, but if my memory is correct, you sign in with your user name on this forum.
  5. Hi dminter, Thank you. Off topic, - every time I try to sign in here I type din my email address and my password but it displays wrong pw so I have to request a new pw and then type in my old pw as my new pw and type it in again as confirmation and then it emails me the verification and I click OK. I have to do this every time, When one signs in is it not your email address and pw? Or is it one's username? How can this be corrected? Thank you.

    Major Geeks - download detected as malware

    Just don't pick the 'MajorGeeks Installer Version'. Going by the name, I assume that one gets you a repackaged version that uses MajorGeeks own installer. The (original) one I gave them was 100% clean.

    Major Geeks - download detected as malware

    The safest place is here: http://imgburn.com/index.php?act=download and the safest Mirror is Mirror 7. There's no guarantee your AV won't complain about it. What AV is detecting is not "malware" but PUP, potentially unwanted program. The installer used to have OpenCandy in it, which would phone home to a server and offer the user other software they may want to download. However, some people get click happy and don't read what they're agreeing to. AV software is generally lazy and it's easier to label something as malware than to label it what it is.
  8. I tried to download and install IMGBURN off Major Geeks but my AV detects it as malware. https://www.majorgeeks.com/mg/get/imgburn,1.html Would you be so kind to share a safer link to t he download? Thank you.

    TSSTcorp CDDVD SH-S202J SB03 won't read disc

    Yeah, wow! I'm done with LG as burners. I'll finish using mine as a reader. These burners are very particular to media. Since this already happened it's on them.

    TSSTcorp CDDVD SH-S202J SB03 won't read disc

    Well, that didn't take long. My latest replacement NS60 needs replacing again! This time, it's the old problem NS60's have of writing scratches to BD-R's that are fatal to the burning process!

    Watching DVD in Windows 10

    Should have been in Chat, yes. My suggestion is one you won't like because you said you didn't want to install other software. But, I wouldn't use VLC player. I found it to be a pretty lousy DVD player when it came to disc compatibility. I use Media Player Classic Home Cinema myself.

    Watching DVD in Windows 10

    What does any of that have to do with imgburn? Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  14. I'm trying to watch a commercially bought regular DVD (not Blu Ray) in W10 Pro. I have the most recent VLC Media Player installed on W10. I inserted the DVD into the player and I can choose Media, Disc and place a dot in the circle next to DVD but it only plays the feature film trailer (15 seconds). I see Feature listed but when I click on it nothing happens. I tried using the Tab, Return, space bar - I'm not sure how to make the feature play. I have the W10 Media App installed but it prompts me to play DVDs from a library. Is there a way to play a commercial DVD with either VLC Media Player or Windows Media Player without installing other software? Thanks. https://www.reddit.com/r/Windows10/comments/3k5pml/can_you_play_dvds_on_windows_10/ Since 2012, native DVD playback has not been included in Windows due to licensing issues for the MPEG2 codecs. It previously was available in some versions of Windows 7 having Windows Media Center, or as an extra cost option for Windows 8.1 Pro if you purchased the Media Center Pack. But that software has now been discontinued and is not included in Windows 10. For people who are upgrading from a version of Windows with Media Center, Microsoft gives you the new Microsoft DVD Player app for free, but the license is tied to the machine, not to your Store account. Alternatively, you can buy the app and use it on multiple devices. It's just a simple player for watching DVDs, not a replacement for Media Center's live TV and DVR features, but it does the job intended. Otherwise there are several 3rd party products, commercial and community, some of which also include Blu Ray support.

    TSSTcorp CDDVD SH-S202J SB03 won't read disc

    Hm, looks like VSO emerged from the darkness to post a new beta of ConvertXToDVD! 7.0.0.73 Beta.
  16. Ah, I see what you mean now. I'll try finding the sweet spot with the burn speed so that it can run best
  17. write speed is exactly that. It only affects how fast the drive burns something resulting in potentially better or worse burn. It again has zero effect on an audio track for example carying audio or not.
  18. I know on the PS1 (No knowledge of Sega systems.) when I would copy some of my game discs, the resulting copies would boot but play with no music. So, I think it's just an idiosyncrasy of how these older game discs were made. With multiple sections for data and audio tracks.
  19. Well yes, I'm pretty sure there is an effect to how you burn them, such as write speed and such, and for older consoles such as the Sega CD it would affect playback
  20. Imgburn only burns what you tell it to. It has zero effect on actual playback behavior Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  21. Hello! I was wondering if I could get help with this, for anyone that has used imgburn to burn Sega CD games. I've tried burning Wild Woody, and after trying to burning it at 8x speed (the lowest my drive can burn CDs) it would simply reset my console. I then tried burning it at max speed, and it boots! but now, there's no music in the game, and I can't play any of the game's tracks in the sega cd. I have the log attached. Please help, thank you Wild Woody burn log.log
  22. Yes, it was a DVD+RW in question.

    ImgBurn reads supposedly empty disc to image file

    DVD+RW yeah? Once formatted, they look like a burnt disc. It'll just read the entire disc from start to end as there's no way of knowing the 'burnt' size without being able to understand a file system that may or may not be present.
  24. I'm having a little difficulty figuring this one out. I put in a disc which I thought had never been written to before, requiring a full format. However, when I put it in for writing, it did not say it needed to format the disc first. So, I entered Read mode to see what, if any, disc label was on the disc to see what might have been written on there before. But, there was no label, so I started the Read operation to see if there were any contents on it, and ImgBurn began reading the disc to ISO. So, I cancelled the read operation and decided to check the disc contents in File Explorer. But, File Explorer said the disc was empty! It just listed empty space X GB of X GB free. I forget the exact amount, 4 something. When I double clicked on the drive, Windows wanted to format is as a giant USB device or whatever the other option is. So, how can ImgBurn be reading a supposedly empty disc to an image file? Could I possibly have formatted the disc as a giant floppy in the past and forgotten about it?

    Burning CCD Image burning error

    Prodisc? Not sure if I've ever heard of them, but I thought Prodisc was a cheap manufacturer years ago. Probably not the real good stuff Verbatim then. Post a log of one of these Prodisc burns so I can see what the Disc ID is. If they are Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation Disc ID, then the problem you can probably nail down to the CCD image you have. It's either bad or ImgBurn has a problem with CloneCD's image format. What is the origin of this CCD file set? Did you create it yourself or did you download it from somewhere? If you downloaded it from somewhere, the likelihood is higher that the image itself is corrupt.

    Burning CCD Image burning error

    Hey, quick update here: Im now using Verbatim (Prodisc Technology Inc.) CD-R but the same problem: I read somewhere in the web that these CD manufacturers are better.. I think it's the ccd read function in imgburn which isn't able to verify the tracks

    Does ImgBurn work with floppy drives?

    No, it’s for optical drives.
