  1. As long as Lightning UK! the author of ImgBurn is active on the forum, how can you consider it's abandonware?

    There is not much to improve in disc burning, so as long as it burns, the software is good as it is.

    Even if it has no recent new release it works on all Windows releases.

    Do you know what to do with them?

    If there is an MDS File along the ISO you always use that file to load the ISO instead of direct selecting the ISO.

    If you want to burn the ISO, you select the MDS and ImgBurm will know what to do and load the ISO to burn and set the correct settings as per the MDS file (media descriptor)

    If you want to mount the ISO  as a virtual drive you select the MDS file and the program you use (Daemon Tools, Virtual Clone Drive or whatever) will know how to treat the ISO to correctly mount it and emulate a DVD-ROM disc rather than a CD-ROM in case of ISO < 1 GB.

  3. What exactly did tsMuxerGUI perfectly to your ISO? What is the output? Is it another ISO or a folder with content?

    Start from MKV and run it through tsMuxerGUI , set it to output Blu-ray ISO or Blu-ray folder.

    Than use ImgBurn

    for ISO


    for folder


  4. Ah, that's poorly designed menu of a DVD. The standalone DVD player has no problem to recognize the button but on a software player with it's tiny clickable area you got a problem.

    In the process of the design of the menu it is advisable to extend the clickable area of the button to overlap the text.


  5. Tried out all mirrors and the files are the same on first 6 mirrors exactly as LIGHTNING UK! say in the quote.

    At mirror 2 by BetaNews tried to force some "FileForum_installer". A blocker probably will solve this and you can get the correct file form the "click here to begin the download." link.

    At mirror 6 by MajorGeeks they tried to force their installer "MG002.exe" with the big "Download Now" button and their first mirror. The second and third mirror will get you the correct file. You can get it also with the yellow "Official Mirror" button placed after the "ImgBurn" on their site.

    Eventually you can get the same installer from all 6 mirrors.

  6. Yes, you can put 4 hours on Dual Layered DVD.

    The size of the VOBs is related to the compression applied to the movie length to fit on target size. The VOBs will always be splited in max. 1,048,544 KB sizes

    Standard DVD Single Layer can hold 120 minutes though you can squeeze more but the final quality will suffer.

  7. I know I read that CMC bought the whole production line, dye material and farming technology from Taiyo Youden just to keep producing the same professional quality disc as JVC delivered.

    I am using the CMC Taiyo Yuden DVD-R printable Watershield Glossy White Inkjet MID: TYG03. So far I burned 2 cakes of 50 discs and not a coaster. And the image printed with Canon Pixma iP 7250 also looks great. As I see, it is marketed as "CMC PRO" Powered by Taiyo Yuden.

    I don't have a Pioneer or LiteOn drive to scan the discs but as far as they work its a good thing, I'll say.

    Maybe they do the same thing with Verbatim and buy all the thechnology with the production line. We'll see.

  8. Oh, I meant the output resolution you set. Full D1 or Half D1?

    Your image is 501 x 499 pixels. Here you'll find a better resolution of that image https://www.amazon.com/Doctor-Who-Pirate-Planet-Novelisation/dp/1785295314

    If you used Full D1 your image is upscaled to 720 x 576 (PAL) or 720 x 480 (NTSC) and padded with black bars for the aspect ratio 4:3 (Narrow screen) or 16:9 (Wide screen) if you mentain the original aspect ratio of the image and don't set it to fit the screen. Half D1 would be 352 x 576 (PAL) or 352 x480 (NTSC).

    Since it's a still image that probably don't matter too much but if you need to read it (small fonts) it's better to use a higher resolution of the image that is downscaled to DVD resolution.


  9. Default is just default for easy fix setting the chapter time. You can change chapter time in ConvertXToDVD without setting it to default.

    Go to the Chapter tab (Clock symbol tab) and click on each chapter start time to manualy input the time to start the chapter.

    Also you can click and drag the chapter markers under the video in preview editor to set the chapter length.


    I'm just curious what resolution you used for that still image. :P

    No problem!  :)


    I thought ImgBurn would make such changes itself if you didn't use UDF or some kind of file system that supported those unusual characters.  It would rename files to compliant names, probably by replacing them with underscores.

    In my opinion, if it ever changes any letter, it should change it into similar letter without acccents or diacritics NOT with underscores. 

    á, é, í, ó, ú, should be a, e, i, o, u

    ! @ # $ % ^ & * ( ) - + < > ? \ / or any similar character can go into underscores.
