  1. Any update on this issue? it is not a big deal in that I almost always record to a rewritable DVD and then copy it to a write-once DVD. Imgburn does not seem to have any problems creaging an image file from this copy. The problem only occurs when I record to a write-once DVD and try to make a copy using Imgburn.
  2. I am running into the same problem with a DVD+R recorded on a Toshiba DVR620KC (a Funai DVD recorder). There is a single title on the DVD and the DVD was finalized. Normally, I record from the Toshiba using a DVD+RW which I have successfully copied to a DVD+R using ImgBurn 2.5.7. I had some read checks on the DVD+RW today so to save time, I recorded directly to a DVD+R but was then not able to create an image file from which I could make a second DVD. I used a freeware DVD->ISO program to generate an ISO file which I could then burn to a DVD+R using ImgBurn. As far as I can tell, the copy is identical to the original.
  3. I ran Process Monitor and was able to verify that my desktop search engine was modifying the files, although I do not yet have a crisp explanation of WHY it is doing this. Why I did not have problems with RecordNow is also not clear. I may be running into a 'feechur' of the latest desktop search engine version, or RecordNow did a poor job of verifying file integrity. Anyway, I am now using a proper backup/recovery application that uses Shadow Copy. Thanks for your help! Norbert
  4. I created copies of a number of files in an attempt to get a successful ImgBurn run and then had problems during the verify - content errors and 'files in use'. I noticed that the date on some of the files had changed while ImgBurn was running. My suspicion is that the exalead desktop search engine that I run is not only scanning the nsf files for changes, but also writing to the files. I will attempt to verify my suspicions. Again, I do not recall having these problems with RecordNow, although unless I can get it working on the new laptop, I cannot confirm this.
  5. I have been using RecordNow to backup a set of files onto DVDs, but it failed on a new laptop (possibly because of installing Vista SP1, possibly due to the DVD writer hardware). I decided to try ImgBurn based on a glowing recommendation from another user. ImgBurn refuses to copy two files because it claims they are in use. I agree that 'names.nsf' is not writable, but I successfully was able to copy the file and RecordNow never complained in the past. I shutdown the application that writes to the file but suspect that it is open read-only by another application. The 'a_nhoeller.nsf' file is puzzling. No other application should be using this file. In fact, after exiting ImgBurn, I was able to rename the file. The strange thing is that ImgBurn is now happily backing up that file, although in three previous tests, the backup failed. Is there a way to get ImgBurn to backup files even if it cannot get exclusive access? I tried setting the 'Ignore I Use Files' option, but that seems to cause ImgBurn to write binary zeros into both files. During the verify step, I cannot seem to skip those files and verify the rest.
