  1. Having a major problem with ImgBurn It will burn fine, then at a random point through the verify process, it just stops (no read errors or popups). CD drive continues to spin fast, but no LED light - clicking on abort sits on "Waiting for Read Thread (Device)..." but only a hard reboot gets the system back. Can't open explorer as the device is locked, pressing eject button does nothing. Thing is, after a reboot, I can verify against the file and it works fine. This only happens after a burn, never when I do a read/verify by itself. I am cycling the tray after burn. It is frustrating to say the least. If it helps, I am burning CDI (multisession files) onto CD-Rs. Drive is LiteOn DH20A4P with 9P59 firmware. I seem to remember a utility that could forcibly unlock a non-responding device (command line), but I don't remember what it was called... I 02:40:14 ImgBurn Version started!

  3. I'd like a selection of things to do with done... maybe rewrite the option so it can do any of three things, close program, enter standby, or turn off computer. I don't know many people who turn off their computer more than once in a while, I almost always use standby.
  4. I won't go into how much I despise programs which decide to add context menus to Windows, especially without asking you, but I couldn't find the option to remove this. I deleted it from the registry, but there should still be an option. Am I missing something?

    Disabling "Read with ImgBurn"

    Naturally that is the first thing I tried, I unticked that and pressed OK, then closed ImgBurn, and it was still there. I even rebooted, but it was still there. So I had to delete it from the registry.

    Want 8x, always starts at 4x till half

    8x is usually P-CAV, starts at 4x and kicks up to 6x and then 8x at different stages. 16x is true CAV with a linear increase from 4x (I think) to 16x by the end of the DVD.

    ImgBurn v2.3.0.0 Released!

    Hooray for read mode! I will never have to install that system instrusive Alcohol 120% again!

    ISO9660 and files > 2GB

    I read many places files > 2GB are not possible on ISO9660, but doesn't seem a problem for ImgBurn. Then I read this on Wikipedia: So, is this what ImgBurn does? I'll probably only ever be reading the files in Windows (maybe a standalone DivX player if I ever find a decent one) so is it okay or should I maybe switch to UDF? UDF filesystem overhead is huge, which is why I don't use it at the moment, plus Joliet is better supported ATM for devices such as DivX players.

    ISO9660 and files > 2GB

    Sounds like you are breaking spec, whether it works or not :}

    What's up with my DVD-RW?

    When I pop a brand new DVD+RW into the drive, here's what happens. I go to format it, and it blinks on and off for a few seconds (maybe 20 seconds), then stops. At this point I have to cancel the program (I used to use Alcohol 120%). After that, formatting works. The way I know it's working is that the light doesn't blink, it stays on the whole time. I thought this may be a bug in Alcohol 120%, but ImgBurn does the same thing. First time, blink blink and then stops, and ImgBurn is waiting for something that's never going to happen. So I force crash it. Second time, it works (light stays on). Can anyone explain to me what's going on here? SONY DW-D18A (OEM DRU700) and standard DVD+RW media (two different brands, same thing).

    Verify against file?

    Verify against file verifies it against the file you burned What does normal verify do? Just try to see if the disc is readable? Wouldn't the best solution to be calculate an MD5 of the ISO as you read/burn it, and then calculate it again reading back burned disc and compare? Tell me I'm stupid if this is what it already does - but if it's the case, why would you bother verifying it against the file? To see if perhaps some reading of the source file could have been corrupted?

    Duplicate volume label?

    If I want to use ISO9660 + Joliet + UDF, it would be nice if I only had to enter a volume label once, instead of three times. I looked through options but there was no option to synchronise them or anything. Have I missed something? If not this would be a good idea as an option for a new version. Obviously ISO has to be in uppercase of the Joliet/UDF one, but that's a simple thing. Thanks.

    Duplicate volume label?

    I'm using it to backup regular files, not for making DVD Videos. But I wonder if I might just stop using ISO9660 and Joliet and use just UDF. My only concern is that I would like a cheapo DVD player which can play DVDs full of MPG files (many can, but my current one doesn't) and it may not parse UDF by itself. Other than that I can't think of any reason to use multiple file systems, not like I'm going to using my burned DVDs on Win95 or DOS or something.

    UDF iso

    Woohoo.............. I was going to add "yet" but didn't want to be presumptuous.
  15. Darkfalz

    UDF iso

    ImgBurn does not build ISOs....
  16. Darkfalz

    UDF iso

    Okay. I remember trying with both CDRWin and mkisofs to make an ISO with file over 2GB and failing. Most likely limitations of the software (all my stuff has the 2GB limit also because of VB6 limitation). Anyone know a free (preferably open source) ISO builder with > 2GB support?
  17. Darkfalz

    UDF iso

    Because it's 32bit signed integer. Any greater than 2GB would give a negative number. I would have thought that would be obvious to someone like you.
  18. Is it planned? I have a huge number of Multi Session images I backed up to DVD-R, was hoping to use ImgBurn to burn them rather than requiring the rather evil Alcohol 120%.
  19. Darkfalz

    UDF iso

    Nope, ISO9660 only supports a max of 2GB. Unfortunately the majority of UDF building programs are bugged (some support only 1GB max, ie. CDRWin).

    Can't burn at 1x

    There's no point in burning 1x, if you want the best quality burn, stick to 4x - this is the highest CLV with no speed switches (although I have an older drive, perhaps there are 8x CLV now, or smoother CAV burning rather than the stepping thing that I have).
  21. I've searched in vain for a simple freeware that can build a simple UDF/ISO file system. One of the problems I keep running into the problem that files over 1GB don't work on UDF (CDRWin) - so I'm still using ISO, but that limits to 2GB (mkisofs doesn't support over 2GB on UDF either). Maybe you can add the support to this? I would assume the basic groundwork of UDF/ISO file system is there, from DVD Decrypter days.

    Turn off computer when done...

    Neither do I! Which is why Standby is awesome. YOu can leave IE etc. open, and your computer is ready to use after only a few seconds. Power consumption in Standby is something like 10 watts, ie. nothing.

    Verify against file?

    I don't suggest it as an alternative to "Verify against file", I suggest it as an alternative to the cheap "just see if it can be read" verify. It would take the same amount of time and reading, but it would also verify the data was all correct. Where's the downside?
  24. Darkfalz

    Verify against file?

    You need to read the file anyway as you burn it. To calculate a CRC32 or MD5 at the same time is trivial and will barely consume any CPU. Of course, a bad burn will result in a wrong CRC32/MD5 on verify, which will tell you there was an error somewhere but not where it is. That being said, I've never had a bad burn where I could actually read the disc but the data was bad. So it would be the same as comparing to file, just without needing to read the file again on verify. True, you wouldn't know which sectors are mismatched, but the point of verify isn't really to catch errors (a rare occurance) but to give the warm and fuzzy feeling that your burn was successful. What advantage is knowing where the burn went wrong, really? Unless it's a persistant problem. I don't know who would keep a only slighty corrupt burn.
