  1. Internally, what Windows API functions is it using to rip the the full raw 2352byte sectors from the CD disks, including all error correction and error detection codes? I'd like to make my own software to raw read all data (including error correction and detection bytes), but not to write to a file, but rather just to read them (one sector at a time) into memory for analysis. The end user could select the sector number, and view all 2352 raw bytes of a disk. And if IMGBurn isn't using normal Windows API functions, how does it work? When I install IMGBurn from the installer EXE, does it actually install a custom-made kernel-mode driver that allows full access to all bytes of data on the CD disk?

    How does IMGBurn create Mode2Form1 images?

    Too bad it's not open source. What exactly is the command you are using with the DeviceIoControl function? Is it the IOCTL_CDROM_RAW_READ function? Or is it something else? I've been trying to use IOCTL_CDROM_RAW_READ command and with track type set to RawWithC2AndSubCode, but it doesn't actually show me the full raw 2352-byte sector for a Mode1 (or Mode2/Form1) disk. I can tell, because the output is missing the error correction and error detection codes (which should be obvious as they should be a section at the end of the sector that looks like random data).

    Thanks for the info. Can you link to that info about the commands? Or better yet, if ImgBurn is open source, could you link to the source code? And does this require that the CDROM drive is on the SCSI bus (as opposed to the IDE bus)? By chance, does it use the CDROM raw reading IOCTL command via the DeviceIoControl Windows API function? Or is SPTI separate? More info on this would be great, and again, if you are allowed to distribute the source, that would be best.

    ImgBurn v2.5.8.0 Released!

    Norton AV detects this as malware or potential malware (according to heuristics). Can you developers please add code to it to help hide it from Norton to make Norton not detect it. I know it's legit software, so can you please do something to stop these false positive AV detections?

    Question about certain check-box

    On the burn page there are 2 check boxes. One is called Verify, which obviously verifies the burned disk's content. The other is called Test Mode, and I have no idea what it does. What does it do? Please let me know.

    Question about certain check-box

    Just did a search for test mode. It found only this thread, and no other info. Please provide the answer to the question I asked in this thread.

    Cracking CSS

    I recently became aware of the fact the US government has made an exception to the DMCA with regard to DVD encryption called CSS. Because of the previous existence of DMCA's forbidding this, you stopped making DVD Decryptor, removed its cracking features, and renamed it ImgBurn. But with the current DMCA exception with regard to cracking CSS, I would like to see CSS cracking reimplemented in the next version of ImgBurn.
