    Reliable source for the desirable Verbatim DVD+R DL 2.4x media

    I've bought from them for years, so I emailed to ask them whether I could get these specific DVDs; his reply was that they shipped what the distributor sent them. He mentioned that some of their recent shipments were being manufactured in India. Not a very satisfying response.
  2. Lightening UK recommends the following DL media: Verbatim DVD+R DL 2.4x (MKM-001-00 dye, made in Singapore). Does anyone know of a reliable source for these exact media? Thanks,

    Burning ISO's without MDS file

    Thanks. I saw the rating of the Pio 115 elsewhere in this forum and have already ordered one. If it works well, I'll get a second.

    Is there a reliable source for these discs?

    I've been thinking of replacing them, but have been too busy (translation: lazy) to do the research. If you were buying today, what you be considering?

    Burning ISO's without MDS file

    This appeared to be working, but then failed at the end (99%). This happens alot. I have two Benq burners and they fail about 80% of the time. Any ideas? .. joe ; //****************************************\\ ; ImgBurn Version - Log ; Sunday, 25 May 2008, 13:55:14 ; \\****************************************// ; ; I 13:09:55 ImgBurn Version started!

    I'm very familiar with Daemon tools. I think I understand now what you're proposing: In Build mode, just use the 'Browse for a Folder' and select the virtual drive itself as the source. Yes?

    Burning ISO's without MDS file

    I'm not sure I follow you. The ISO files I have now were created mostly with DVD Decrypter, which produced an MDS file. During over-zealous disk-cleaning I must have deleted the MDS files. As I mentioned in my original post, when the very first time I tried to burn a (MDS-less) ISO file to DL disk, ImgBurn did prompt me to select a layer break. There was only one choice, which I selected. Afterward, the burn proceeded uneventfully. I have since tried this on several other ISO files, an I just get the error message mentioned in my original post. So, through beginner's luck I apparently stumbled on a way to set the layer break. At any rate, I've been unable to get the same results on other ISO files. ???? Thanks, Joe

    The guide you point to presupposes that the DVD has been ripped to Video (IFO/BUP/VOB) files. AFAIK, ImgBurn's write mode produces only ISO files, so I'm assuming that you recommend I use some other tool to rip the ISO image (via Daemon Tools) to DVD video files. Yes? Thanks, Joe

    Burning ISO's without MDS file

    Folks, I have a couple of dozen ISO files, but have somehow lost the associated MDS file (mea culpa). To get around this, I created an MDS file using Tools->Create DVD MDS file." Afterward, when I tried to burn to DL, I got the message "This image has not been mastered correctly...Do you want to continue anyway." Since I don't know the consequences of answering 'Yes,' and because DL DVDs aren't cheap, I haven't proceeded down this path. As I was experimenting yesterday, I somehow (don't recall how) got ImgBurn to prompt me to chose layer-break information; after doing so, then ISO then burned correctly. My questions: (1) Can somebody explain the steps I (fortuitously) took to cause ImgBurn to prompt for the layer break info? (2) If I mount an ISO in DAEMON, and then rip the virtual drive via ImgBurn, will it create an MDS file? Thanks in advance. Joe

    Zero for 4 burning Double layer

    After sucessfully burning hundreds of single-layer disks, I just tried to burn my first double-layers. I'm zero for four: all burns go fine until about 96%, then fail. I thought I should get some expert advice "burning" my money any further. Attached is the associated log file. Thanks, Joe ImgBurn.log
