I am in the process of changing my burn software (from CdBurnXp to ImgBurn), but I have a problem reading all Dvd I write with ImgBurn.
I use the "Write files/folders to disc" button.
The burn is always successful, but when I try to read, it is incredibly slow.
I have tried it (write and read) on 3 computers :
-XP 32 bit, on a 5 years old computer.
-Vista 64 bit on a 1 year old computer.
-Vista 64 bit on a 1 week old high-end workstation.
The read is slow on all computers, even when it was burned on its own Dvd drive.
Write and verify steps take 7 minutes, with no problem at all, on all computers.
When I try to read back from the Dvd to a local hard disk, it takes 56 minutes !
If I burn exactly the same directory with 2 other burners (CdBurnXP and DeepBurner), I can read the result in 15 minutes.
Even at the beginning of the copy (I type CTRL-C on the Dvd content, then CTRL-V on the local hard disk),
I see the Microsoft Windows pop-up refreshing the number of files to copy and the total size.
This part (before the copy actually start) takes :
-63 seconds for a Dvd burned with ImgBurn.
-2 seconds for a Dvd burned with CdBurnXP or DeepBurner.
Another difference :
If the Dvd was burned using ImgBurn, the drive makes a lot of noise when I read it (to copy to hard disk), as if the head was moving a lot.
Almost no noise at all is heard at read-time when I burn using other burners.
Of course, for all my tests, the Dvd contains exactly the same files, burned from the same directory.
Here is how I install ImgBurn v22.214.171.124 :
During installation, I switch ON this setting : "Enable SPTI access for All Users".
After installation, I switch ON these settings (from Tools-->Settings) :
Build-->Page2-->Don't Prompt Image Details
Build-->Page2-->Don't Prompt Root Content-->Answer NO
After clicking on "Write files/folders to disc", I switch ON this setting :
Advanced-->Restrictions-->ISO9660-->Allow More Than 8 Directory Levels
Everything else is set as default.
So my tests were done using the default Options-->FileSystem-->ISO9660 + UDF
Then I tried the "UDF" setting, just in case ISO9660 was guilty, but the problem is exactly the same.
The directory I write is always the same for years, it contains 20 000 files (1700 folders, 1.6 Gigabytes), it's my backup containing a lot of stuff (.txt .jpg .doc .html .cpp .h etc...).
The tests were done using the same Sony Dvd-R medias (SONY16D1) on all computers.
I also tried Fujifilm media (RITEKF1), but same problem.
It's probably my fault, so please tell me what switch I forgot to change in the ImgBurn settings.
Thanks a lot,
