    Burn Speed for DVD and CD

    Hi, I burn both CDs and DVDs from ISOs. I usually burn CDs at 24x and DVDs at 12x. Imgburn works PERFECT every time! When I put in a DVD after I last burned a CD, the speed selection is still set to the choice I used for the CD. Is there away for Imgburn to detect if there is a blank CD or DVD in the drive, and use your (user setting) choice that you selected for that type of disc? Thanks!

    FLAC files for audio disc

    It was hard for me to understand all of this too, but I also wanted to make CDs from FLAC files. I went to this website and installed these freeware filters. After that when I added FLAC files to Imgburn, it accepted them and burned a proper audio CD. Use the CUE file button on Imgburn to build your CD. here are the filter you can download for free: free-codecs.com good luck!

    Which drives burn CDs that Play on Teac CD Player?

    the previous log files are under Help, and you will see a drop down that points to them. the next step is to let one of the experts here review the log and see if they find a problem with the settings on the burn.

    Which drives burn CDs that Play on Teac CD Player?

    Some CD players will not play CD-RWs (rewriteable) and most will play CD-Rs, but not all. Some that do read burned CDs still may me finicky with some dyes. You can visually see some have a greenish color or are silver, gold, or maybe some other. If you had luck in the past with burned CDs, try to use the same kind/brand and see if they works in your player. As mentioned above the OS make no difference, but a log file will help an advanced user tell if you burned a "complaint" CD.

    Medium Not Present?????

    try a commercial CD or a DVD movie that was not "burned", but one that came complete with content from the store. if your drive can't read them, then it is bad and needs to be replaced (or the cable went bad, or the controller on your motherboard, but it would be a hardware problem). if it can read a commercially pressed DVD or CD, but not your blanks, then it doesn't like your brand/type of discs. then try a different brand of media to burn. you need to do as above to see if your drive still works, if it does, then either use different media, or update the firmware so it works with the media you have, but if it doesn't read then you have a bad drive or other hard connection to your computer problem. over time and use, drives do go bad. from my experience, the laser would go weak and not burn, but it would still be strong enough to read. you do know the shinny side usually goes DOWN in the tray?

    Imgburn only creating data disk (I think)

    I was having a few bad burns with my Pioneer drive and Verbatim DVD-R discs. I googled *DVD burner beige* and a Sony Optric Sata drive came up at Newegg for about $24 + tax and shipping. The total was $31 and I ordered it on Thursday a few days ago. I got it by UPS the next day! (no special extra shipping charge). Took 5 minutes to install. $31 is not much to solve my problems.

    Imgburn only creating data disk (I think)

    Looks like your image file is only about 1.8 gigabytes. I'm not an expert, but from what I seen, the main movie of most commercial quality DVDs that are say 1.5 hours or so take up almost all of a 4.7 gb single layer DVD. Whoever encoded the source you received must have used a setting to save time and disc space. I doubt even with the best equipment on your end, the quality will be anything close to DVD quality most of us are used to.

    Simply won't play on DVD player except computer

    in the usa and some countries the dvd format is NTSC, in other countries they use PAL. look at the settings in the slide show program and make sure the setting for PAL or NTSC is correct for your region (and DVD player).

    Write Speed Miscompare

    thanks. yes, a previous attempt failed, but the Imgburn window still said Status: Disc Empty, so I closed everything and tried again with the same disc. I was basically just wondering those questions, but I burn a lot with Imgburn, and rarely have an error, and the movies always play great!

    Write Speed Miscompare

    Why do you think I got a Write Speed Miscompare error? This log says 12x is a valid speed. The log also says 18x is valid, but the Verbatim media has 16x as it's rated speed on the disc logo and package, is that a bonus speed? Imgburn changed my selection to 4x. This only happened on one disc, others burn fine, but just wondering. Also, not sure what "AWS" means on the speed selection means, but on another computer, I had it set for AWS, and maximum burning speed was 22x! Will/should Imgburn burn faster then the rated speed if it can? Thanks for all of your support! I 14:06:30 ImgBurn Version started!

    google DC-BASS and that freeware program will install the filters in XP. then retry to burn and you shouldn't have that error again.

    Imgburn & Lite on eTDU108 external

    I clicked on the download tab of that link, and downloaded the PDF for Product Spec. It looks to me like it says it is a writer even though the main page lists only read speeds. It also says it works off of USB power, but I wonder if a laptop USB connection would be strong enough to burn a disc? Anyway, below is a paste of part of that PDF.

    Cannot play DVD

    Some set top DVD players do not play DVD+R DVDs, but might still play DVD-R. Have you been able to play DVD+R on that player in the past?

    TV System: NTSC the log says the file was NTSC. Isn't PAL the standard in Europe?

    Disc burned perfectly, then shows up as blank

    Are all of these read fails with burns of the same image or files? If yes, have you tried to to make an image from a disc that you know reads well, like a driver disc, use Imgburn READ to make an image, and WRITE that image and see if your drive reads that.

    Help Copying part of a dvd

    if you have a standard DVD, DVD SHRINK would work (free, google it). After you drag the main (or whatever) movie from it's browser to the project side, there are buttons above to set start and end frames. hit backup and it can create an image to burn. you can choose Burn With DVD Decrypter. if you don't have that program, just let DVD Shrink make the image file anyway, then burn it with Imgburn. both programs are several years old, but there is supposedly a patched version of DVD Shrink that will call Imgburn (instead of DVD Decrypter) to do the burning. if you use DVD Shrink a lot, you might find the patched version more handy. good luck.

    ImgBurn Problems

    this may sound silly, but get a regular commercially pressed CD and verify that your drive will play that. all of your posts state you not being able to play these "bad" CDs, but I haven't read where an original store bought music CD works. have you tried one recently?
  21. hollywood

    No audio or video image on DVD

    there is a check box for Verify and Test Mode above the the big button you use to start burning. be sure the Test Mode button is not checked.

    Cant' burn Disks

    Cynthia, great idea. forget the citric acid, I like the lemon scent Mmalves, how long have you had that link in your arsenal just waiting for someone to ask that question? Happy April Fools Day everyone! I read this forum regularly and everyone gives a lot of support to users that have problems. Thanks to everyone for all of the time you put in here and LightningUK for ImgBurn!

    Cant' burn Disks

    I bought IMGBURN so I can copy my 360 games, but I am having some trouble. I am using genuine 3M 360kb medium but can't get it into the drive without cutting off the protective floppy cover. The disk is darker then I expected and says "Caution, Magnetic Medium". I figured it might be dirty, so I took Cynthia's advice and cleaned the drive with a little dish liquid and bleach in the dish washer. I been seeing some sparks when I first reinstalled the drive but stopped after the last of the bubbles dried. Mmalves, do you know where I can get the latest drivers for my 8086 processor? I am also running a 8087 math coprocessor, so speed should be OK. Any Idea why my discs are not coming out ok? If I can’t get this solved, I am going to have to ask for a refund. Thanks in advance!
