    Wrong disc size reported in Discover/Read

    Discovery mode is for zero filling discs (burning all zeros to them) - used when running disc quality checks. Don’t use it for anything beyond that. The size reported by the program is what the drive reports. If it’s changing, either your drive is messed up or you’ve got some 3rd party software messing around with the response. The program isn’t actually ‘counting’ the sectors itself.

    arrangement of audio track

    It depends on how your player plays them. It might read their ID3 tags and arrange them into albums. It might then order them by track number from the ID3 tag or by name if that isn't available. At the end of the day, it's a data disc. The files are sorted into alphabetical order within the file system. If your player doesn't make use of the ID3 tags, that's the order it'll end up playing them in and that's when renaming the files to fit your desired order is required. If media player works for what you want, it would make sense to use that instead.

    Make ISO image file of Audio CD?

    Unfortunately, there’s no way to specify the name of the data file when using CCD. That’s why ImgBurn has to rename its usual ‘bin’ file to ‘img’. The CUE file can then just be told to use the img file. Back when ImgBurn (or perhaps its predecessor) came about, DAEMON Tools was a much simpler application. It grew and grew, had a few driver issues (which slowed down real optical drives) and people liked the basic nature of virtual clone drive. There’s no doubt that Daemon tools is more capable and fully featured (both in terms of features and its ability to faithfully emulate a physical drive), but if VCD works for you, that’s great.

    Make ISO image file of Audio CD?

    Not where ImgBurn is concerned, no. BIN/CUE is what ImgBurn started off supporting for CD images. I added support for CCD purely so people had the option of using VirtualCloneDrive instead of DAEMON Tools. Yes, you should always point the tools at the info files (CUE/CCD/MDS etc) rather than the data files (BIN/IMG/MDF). Otherwise, you're just giving them a load of data without any info on how to interpret it.

    Make ISO image file of Audio CD?

    That’s just what CDDA is. Check the MMC specs for optical drives and the various types of sectors used for what can be stored on a CD. Please just take it from me that the program is telling the truth. Don’t attempt to read an audio disc to a single file that you’ve given the ‘iso’ extension to. It won’t work... in anything. Bin/cue is very common for anything CD related. Bin/cue can be mounted in lots of virtual drive programs (the main one is / was Daemon Tools). Virtual CloneDrive is by the same people that made CloneCD, hence why it supports CCD/IMG instead, rather than Bin/cue. A virtual drive program that can fully process a bin/cue combo and emulate an optical drive/disc with it will be usable in the same way as if you had the original disc in a real optical drive.

    Make ISO image file of Audio CD?

    An ISO is dumb. It's a basic 2048 bytes per sector (purely 'user data') dump of the disc. It knows nothing of sessions, tracks, indexes etc and is always assumed to be single session, single track. Audio discs are complex. 2352 bytes per sector and you have the option of multiple tracks and multiple index points. That's why BIN/CUE is used. The CUE file is required for all of the extra info about the disc and the BIN is a 2352 bytes per sector dump of the disc. Without the CUE, your BIN file is useless - do not delete it. ImgBurn can also create a CCD file - which is very similar in function to the CUE file. VirtualCloneDrive doesn't actually (fully) support BIN/CUE, which is why ImgBurn can make CCD/IMG - VCDs native format.

    DVD not erasing

    Post the log please. Chances are, you're trying to erase a disc that can't be erased. Only rewritable discs can be erased, not your standard CD-R/DVD-R/DVD+R/BD-R.

    /CONVERTMODE2TOMODE1 command line option

    No. I've been very busy for the past 6 or 7 years The version with that in will be released one day. Definitely this year.

    Finalize Disc.

    Sorry, no. ImgBurn can't help you with this. You've basically made a multisession disc. ImgBurn can send the commands to close tracks, sessions, discs etc.... but they're only useful for when those commands didn't work the first time around. Your disc has been left unfinalised and with a new session open (that you can add data to) on purpose. The only way to finalise it is to add more data to it (again, can't be done with ImgBurn) and then ensure it's closed/finalised - do not let the software make yet another new session. It might just be easier to make a new disc. Use ImgBurn in build mode, add your MP3 files and burn.
  10. You could try enabling the 'Perform OPC Before Write' option in the settings to see if that helps. Failing that, if your drive can't seem to burn the discs you're (MID/Disc ID: MBI 01RG40) using, try some different ones.
  11. The program reads the sectors in chunks. When the drive returns an error, it drops down to reading them 1 at a time so it can pick out the bad one. What’s happened here is that the drive errored out when reading the chunk, but then succeeded to read them all when doing it 1 by 1. I would the disc has the potential to be unreliable. Maybe do a stand-alone verify on it and see if the drive fails to read it again in those same locations.

    Boot Image field in ImgBurn (Advanced tab)

    If you’re trying to burn an XP install CD, why aren’t you following the XP guide instead of the Vista+ one? How to create a Windows XP installation disc (bootable) using ImgBurn. https://forum.imgburn.com/index.php?/topic/11190-How-to-create-a-Windows-XP-installation-disc-%28bootable%29-using-ImgBurn

    Error: Device Not Ready (Incompatible Medium Installed)

    That drive is a dvd writer, not a BD writer. It only ‘reads’ bd-roms.
  14. I've checked the code and can't see any obvious way to silence those I'm afraid.
  15. You're going to need a drive that can overburn DVD+R DL media in order to burn that disc. https://www.vinpowerdigital.com/t/categories/Optical-Drives

    Hello Im having a problem With This error

    The screenshots you've posted suggest the images are larger than you say they are. Take a screenshot of the main window once you've loaded the image in Write mode please.

    CD-R "Disk not empty"

    Yes, unless your drive is broken, you should have no problem writing to them (subject to normal disc quality issues). Do not attempt to erase or format them before use. Take one out of the packet, fire up ImgBurn and try to burn that image again.

    CD-R "Disk not empty"

    That looks like a CD-R, you can't erase / format it. Use a new disc.

    Help with Workflow for Multi-Track BD-Rs

    Please try the following... Tools -> Settings -> 'Read' tab -> Page 2 -> Disc Layout Method -> Change 'Blu-ray' to 3-1-2. Then try using Read mode to read the disc again. ImgBurn will be in control of read then and not the OS, meaning you can perform more retries / skip bad sectors etc. Post the log when you hit a problem spot, have retried a few times and are about to give up (if it comes to that).

    Problem with ISO image.

    I've already answered your email about this. Feel free to bring the conversation here instead if you prefer.

    download nad digest

    Correct. ImgBurn exe stayed the same, just the installer changed.
  22. Is it a DVD Video disc or is it something else? The only things I ever really saw that were oversized were xbox360 images.
  23. Have you actually tried to burn it and the program has told you it won't fit?

    Finalise DVD

    How did you burn the discs in the first place? Put one of them in the drive and open ImgBurn in Write mode. Now please copy and paste everything from the box on the right of the main window.

    power calibration area error

    It's probably just down to the media you're using. Although you say they're Verbatim discs, I'm afraid they're the wrong ones.... perhaps the 'value' range? Yours use the CMC MID/dye rather than the MCC/MKM one. Look for the 'Azo' label on Verbatim media and avoid their value range. If you get the decent stuff and the drive still errors out, you'll have to invest in a new drive.
