    Yeah, this forum isn't dead. It's not jumping and jiving, but it's not dead. Every few days, someone posts some request for help. Even the occasional spam.

    Don't be sad, be happy.
  7. If your drive works, it works. Ideally, you'd be able to get proper passthrough of all I/O working (if that's even possible), so ImgBurn can see it as the LG drive that it is. You'll soon find out how reliable it is by reading and writing a few 'cheap' 25GB discs. Don't jump straight to the 100GB MDisc ones. ImgBurn marks the UDF file system as readonly and always closes discs when it burns, so you can't add anything to them. UDF 2.5 or 2.6, it doesn't really matter. DVD and BD are always Mode 1. Only CD can be Mode 2. DVD and BD are always SAO/DAO. Only CD can be TAO.
  8. That’s a very old drive... same internals as the lite-on 812S. I doubt it has firmware support for mkm-003-00 does it?! Are any supported write speeds listed in the box on the right when in Write mode with a blank disc in the drive?
  9. You say this has never happened before, but have you always used these MKM discs? Those are the quality Verbatim discs, so you're not using junk discs. If you've had no problem with these discs before and you've burned a good deal of them, then you probably need to replace your drive. If this is your first time trying to burn these MKM discs, it may be your drive doesn't like them. Try updating the firmware if there is one.
  10. Hi, I´m having this recurrent error when trying to burn a ISO to a 8x DVD+R DL, this never happened before. Could please someone help me solving this error? thanks in advance AJALG

    im sad. pls bring back the good memories of this amazing app :( i cant stop thinking about it. please someone talk to me talk to me
  12. Also what is the default strategy for burning a data disc? SAO or TAO or something else? what is better for me burn some videos and PDF files along with some music for archiving purposes? I don’t intend to play them in the Blu-Ray disk or normal kind of player. I’m also burning some video disc for me to watch in the future, just some TV shows, what is the recommended format in this circumstance? Thanks.
  13. 0b4c94f8480f8cd13e160bceaaaa8b29 checked my MD5 so it should be fine. Thanks.
  14. Also what is the best format for data archiving with Blu-Ray Discs (M-disc) Disks? UDF2.6 Mode 1? and why is it read only in macOS and windows but UDF 2.50 is write and read both? I've also heard about the malware IMGburn was installing (like CPU mining etc), is there still such a thing? Is there any options for me to mark the disk 'not writable at all' after my initial burning even if there is space on the disk? I don't want any alters to the data at all after my burning.
  15. I have a SATA burner (LG BH16NS55), possibly the best M-disc burner, however, I don't use windows anymore and I don't use desktop anymore.. so there is the tricky question: 1. I am using MacBook Pro 16 inch (2019) and using a SATA to USB3.0 cable which supports optical burner (with 12V/2A power), connects the MacBook using Belkin's USB3.0 HUB, using macOS Parallel Desktop 16 running Windows to use IMGBurn to burn my disks.. 2. Is there a big risk? or I should just buy a windows laptop to use the SATA-USB3.0 cable with 12v/2a power? 3. or buy a desktop that uses SATA and windows, so there is no risk at all? because I think the first way is through many chipsets and converters. OS limitations and virtual OS are also tricky too. M-disc is not a cheap thing especially I am burning 100GB ones, so I'm just seeking for help if anyone has tried running IMGBurn through virtual machines running Windows (such as VMware or Parallel Desktop) on macOS with a USB-C (thunderbolt3) to USB-3.0 hub connecting this SATA Burner through a SATA to USB3.0 cable with 12V/2A Power?

    How to make CD or DVD Bootable from a ISO

    All you do is Read the disc using Read mode and then Write the image using Write mode. There's nothing special involved. If you run into issues during the Write (and Verify.... make sure the leave that enabled) phase, post a log please.
  17. Now I've tried to read a couple more BD-R discs I've burned before, even different media (still cheap, though ), and the drive can't read them. This means I'll really have to change the drive... But you are right, I should use better media for this. Thanks again!
  18. I honestly don't use BD DL media anymore. I used to use BD-RE DL to write the monthly Windows data backups to external media. But, since flash drives (And now USB SSD's.) got lower in cost and higher capacities, plus are much faster, I switched to those.
  19. Thanks! Since the cost of DL media is not worth it (for me, at least), I plan to keep using single layer until that changes.
  20. You could try not using the cheap CMC MAG discs. However, if they worked before, changing to something other than cheap media probably wouldn't work. But, you would be able to narrow it down to the drive if you tried the better Verbatim (NOT Life Series.) BD-R and got the same results.
  21. Yes, I already tried that, and ImgBurn also shows the disc as empty: HL-DT-ST BD-RE BH16NS40 1.03 (ATA) Current Profile: BD-R Disc Information: Status: Empty State of Last Session: Empty Erasable: No Free Sectors: 12,219,392 Free Space: 25,025,314,816 bytes Free Time: 2715:27:17 (MM:SS:FF) Next Writable Address: 0 MID: CMCMAG-BA5-000 Supported Read Speeds: 2x, 4.2x, 6.2x, 8x, 9.9x, 12.1x Current Read Speed: 2.6x - 6.2x BD Disc Information: Disc ID: CMCMAG-BA5-000 Disc Type: BD-R Disc Size: 120 mm Disc Class: 0 Disc Version: 1 Number of Layers: 1 Layer Type: Writable DVD Layer Present: No CD Layer Present: No Channel Bit Length: 74.50 nm (25 GB Per Layer) Push-Pull Polarity: Positive Recorded Mark Polarity: HTL BCA Present: Yes Maximum Transfer Rate: Not Specified First PAA of Data Zone: 131,072 Last PAA of Data Zone: 1,658,494
  22. The problem is either your drive or Windows in conjunction with the drive. You say your PS3 recognizes data on these discs but Windows does not? Since the PS3 recognizes data on them, ImgBurn is writing data to them. It's just Windows is not recognizing it. When you get one of these BD that Windows shows is blank, go into Read mode and see if ImgBurn recognizes a disc is inserted. Then, try reading that BD to an image file. If ImgBurn can recognize data on the disc, it's a Windows problem, most likely. If ImgBurn can't recognize data on the disc, I'd be more likely to blame the drive as being problematic.

    How to make CD or DVD Bootable from a ISO

    What do you mean by CDE? Do you mean CDR and it's a typo? So, you're saying the CD-RW boots, but the ISO you made from the CD-RW and you're burning to CD-R doesn't boot? What created the ISO? ImgBurn's Read of the CD-RW or Build mode creating a new ISO?
  24. Of those 3 drives, the only one I would recommend is one you don't have on your list. I use the LG WH16NS60. NOT the 40. The problems with the Pioneer drive: Pioneer has gradually declined in quality until it's unacceptable in its current state. The first Pioneer I had lasted almost 2 years. The last one I had didn't last 2 months. Plus, they keep borking the firmware. They keep messing it up so now it can't properly write to Ritek 8x DVD+RW discs anymore. The problem with the WH16NS40 is precisely what you want to use it for. Data backups to BD media. While single layer BD media is fine in the NS40, double layer BD and BD-RE WILL fail 9 times out of 10! If you don't plan on using BD-R DL or BD-RE DL, it's fine, though. I don't recall too much about the WH14NS40. so it may have been fine. I just don't remember if I ever had that model and if I did, what peculiarities it might have had.
  25. Hi there! As I wrote in another topic, my current drive (LG HL-DT-ST BD-RE BH16NS40 1.03 ATA) seems to be acting up, so I'm looking for a replacement. Searching for what's available near me, I've found these internal writers: Pioneer BDR-209DBK LG WH14NS40 LG WH16NS40 Comparing these models specs doesn't show any immediate big difference between them, specially between the WH14NS40 and WH16NS40. I plan to do only eventual backups from my PC on Blu-ray media (around once a month). Since in this forum there is plenty of people with a lot more experience than me, would you recommend one model over the other, and if so, why? Or is there any other drive you would recommend? Thank you in advance!

    How to make CD or DVD Bootable from a ISO

    I have an ISO and I am trying to create a bootable CDE or DVD form the ISO file as input with IMGBURN. I created the ISO from a Bootable CD-RW. I must be doing something wrong. Can someone help point me in the right direction or what I am doing wrong?
  27. Hi there! I've been a very satisfied user of ImgBurn for many years. It is a wonderful software that I always recommend. I use it mostly to backup my PC, and have burned many CDs, DVDs and BDs with it. But recently, after not burning anything for several months, I've had a few issues backing up data to BDs. I tried with CDs and DVDs, and they always work fine, but BDs sometimes end up appearing as blank, even if the writing process, verification process and log show no issues at all. My previous BD-R media was working fine, but I bought a new one anyways, and the result was the same. The issue didn't seem to be the software (ImgBurn) or the discs (I guess), but I don't have another PC with a BD drive at hand to test the discs - except that I do have a PS3, and lo and behold, the console can read the data without issues! :-O Now I believe my Blu-ray drive is the culprit (LG HL-DT-ST BD-RE BH16NS40 1.03 ATA). Am I right in that assumption, or is there anything else that I can investigate / test on the PC side? Any tips are appreciated. Thank you!
