    CREATE files

    Yes... what he said ^^ The only way to make a BIN/CUE in the program is to Read a disc to an image file. You can't make one from a bunch of audio files (wav files or whatever).

    LabelFlash, Mode Sense and Get Configuration related questions

    The returned data is made up of a mode page header, a block descriptor and then the page itself. So you have to skip the header (8 bytes) and then the block descriptor (size taken from last 2 bytes of the header) in order to then read the actual mode page data. As you've asked for mode page 0x2A, you know the LSB 6 bits (so & with 0x3F) in the first byte should be 0x2A, so you can use that as a sanity check. Bytes 12 and 13 in that mode page are the buffer size and they're set to 0x1000, so that's 4096. So maybe you just aren't parsing the returned data correctly? I also fall back to Mode Sense (6) if Mode Sense (10) doesn't appear to be supported by the drive (invalid command op code or whatever). That may help on some really old drives.

    LabelFlash, Mode Sense and Get Configuration related questions

    1. Still just mode sense. But I stopped specifically checking for 2D (yes, perhaps due to hanging) and instead ask for the full list... then check that list for the presence of 2D. If 2D is supported, it's classed as being labelflash capable. Those liteon drives must report 2D ok and are therefore considered labelflash capable. 2. Not that I know of. I still only use that for the buffer size. 3. Not specifically, no. If the DVD Read feature (001F) is supported, I consider it able to read DVD-RW. Same goes if the DVD-R/-RW Write Feature (002F) is supported.
  4. I'm pretty sure it (VCD) doesn't actually support CUE files. It may be able to mount the BIN, but the resulting virtual drive won't be correct unless the original disc the bin/cue came from was only a single session/track disc.
  5. Daemon Tools can mount cue files
  6. Your bin and cue file combo is already a disc image. Mount the CUE in a program that supports such a thing - or just burn the CUE using Write mode (and a blank CD)
  7. Yes. Your question was how to create a cue that burns 3 bin files. You don’t need to create one, you already have/had it. Just burn it.
  8. You may have missed my previous reply as you replied at the same time. Go ahead and burn the cue from redump. Your image will work fine.
  9. Oh hang on, I’m confused. If you have the cue files, what’s the problem? Just load the cue in write mode and burn it. That’s the whole point of the cue file... to automatically deal with more complex images.
  10. Not quite, your link to you to a site that then linked to redump Totally different sites and there was nothing to say you’d seen the redump one.
  11. Maybe check here for the correct CUE? http://redump.org/discs/system/psx/
  12. The CUE you found online and posted in your first post would probably work, but it's impossible to say if it's correct or not. It assumes the bin files for track 2 and 3 both have 2 seconds of pregap (basically, nothing) at the start of them. My advice would be to find another source where the disc has been ripped properly and all files (including the CUE file) are present. I'm assuming the image you posted 'about the file' isn't one you've made yourself, because clearly the CUE file is present in that case Unless of course that's the CUE you've made yourself too.

    Image and Device Buffer oscillation

    The graph data files are more useful for speed issues. Fluctuations in speed once you hit a certain speed are usually an indication you’ve hit the max of something in your machine.

    CD-TEXT Support

    It can’t pluck the info out of thin air. The choices are... 1. Read it from tags in the file 2. Use the file name 3. Use what you type in

    Image and Device Buffer oscillation

    Did you say your new ‘black’ drive is slower than your old ‘blue’ one? That definitely shouldn’t be the case. The blacks are superior to the blue models in every way. Have you done any transfer rate tests on it? It shouldn’t be struggling to stream enough data for a 16x verify operation. Of course if the drive is being accessed by other stuff, that could explain why it can’t cope. Hdds are no good at random access really. I have my pc connected to a ups... no issues to note.

    I've done everything right, but it doesn't work.

    No, but you said you copied the files using your brother's PC. So instead of copying the files on his, you should have tried to make an image. In any case, it would seem you're out of luck and the copy protection would kick in either way.

    I've done everything right, but it doesn't work.

    You should have used ImgBurn to make an image from the original disc, not from the files you'd copied to a USB stick. Is this a game cd? It could be copy protected and that's why it's not working now.

    Can’t burn ioprp files, please help

    How big is the file? What if you change the file extension to .ISO ?

    How to permanently ignore the Layer Break position

    Edit the single layer media size to something that won't require it to prompt for one. It's on the 'Advanced' -> 'Media' tab.
  20. Your drive reported a 'Write Error'. That's why the burn failed. Just try again. If your drive often fails to burn those discs at MAX speed, try slowing the write speed down a bit (maybe to 16x) and/or getting some different discs.

    erasing disc forever

    It isn't really possible to say. It could be the drive or it could be the disc. That said, if the disc were at fault, the drive still shouldn't be behaving like that. It should work or error out and clearly yours isn't doing either of those.

    erasing disc forever

    Your drive is still reporting it’s in progress. I guess it’s safe to assume it got stuck. Turn your machine off and on again.

    PTP and OTP

    All DL discs we buy are OTP, yes. Retails can be both, but not writable ones. I don't suppose Track Path really applies to single layer ones as you're only walking over the disc in one direction anyway (inner to outer).

    Right Click build option missing?

    Nope, I’m pretty sure I never added anything like that. It’s quite trivial to add it though.
