  1. Ah, I can post again here, in Chrome, after logging out and back into the Imgburn Forum. Is it possible I got a bad spindle of Verbatims a couple weeks ago?

    Can't post in my own thread

    Signed out of forum, then back in, can now post in this thread... progress! Hmm, will try to post in my thread about analysis of CD stalling and see if I can post there...
  3. Thanks, I'll try that (I mean the clearing cache, cookies, etc. suggestion, I hadn't seen your post about screen shots or video... don't know how to grab a second or two of video, what's the means to do that?). This seems to be the only thread I can reply to ATM. Seems odd to me. Anyway, have you had a chance to look at my Imgburn log I attached to a post earlier today in the thread about not being able to analyze CDs?
  4. I can post here, I cannot post in my original thread or the thread complaining I can't post in my thread! But here I can. LIGHTNING, you said: Well, I opened the developer tools, tried to post, the same behavior happened (a second after clicking, the reply window did not stay open and I couldn't post anything, much less type anything in it). I have no idea how to interpret what's going on in the developer tools.
  5. How do I post the log? Ah, I found it. Here's the log that should include info about the travails I experienced last night when several Verbatim CDR burns failed (I heard the woman go, "Oh Nooo!"). Attached is the log file dated 3/25/21 (i.e. current one on that machine). ImgBurn.log Note this, for instance: W 17:53:28 Failed to Write Sectors 12636 - 12662 - Reason: Write Error E 17:54:29 Failed to Write Sectors 12636 - 12662 - Reason: Write Error E 17:54:52 Operation Failed! - Duration: 00:02:13 I'm unfamiliar with the log, I just cherry picked those lines. Perhaps inspecting the log will reveal or help to reveal to some degree the nature of the problems I've been having using Imgburn, my burners, media, etc.
  6. Ah, so I swapped machines, I'm on my sort-of-clone of my other machine on which I was having the problem. I CANNOT access our first thread together, but can access this one, that is in order to reply. Hmm... does it have to do with my account in this forum? I have a desktop I could try...
  7. I could try my other laptop. I have another very similar laptop that is pretty much interchangeable with this one. I'm probably going to go back to sleep now, though. It's around noon where you are but here it's 4AM! Thanks for the help! Um, when I get those threads working again, your asking me to post the log. I'm unfamiliar with that. It's a file under the Imgburn install? Am I to attach it or copy/paste its content? Will it cover only recent action(s) or over a period of time?
  8. I can't reply to either of those 2 threads now. CTRL+F5 didn't stop the behavior. Only way it seems I can post now is to start a new thread, which is what this is. Hmm.

    Ah, CTRL+F5, well, never heard of that before. I thought F5 itself did a refresh. "If it happens again, you'll know what to do." Um WHAT!?? Another thing occurred to me. I'd been getting messages popping up in Windows 10 saying that my Internet Settings were insufficient and I should click-to-fix. I did do that about the time I was having this issue and started this help-me thread. I figured it might just have to do with one tweak I do to allow me to play MP3s off my system without confirming that I'm sure it's safe to do so. I work (volunteer) at a college radio station and we're all creating shows at home during the pandemic and I need to work with MP3s, WAVs too, very often listening to them before using them. Having to confirm safety is an extra step, so I do this: Run command: Windows key + R inetcpl.cpl Security Tab Click Custom level button near bottom Scroll down to: ‘Launching applications and unsafe files (not secure)’ option Click Enable Click Apply Click OK So, I'd done the click-to-fix Internet security settings, checked and indeed I once again had to confirm before hearing an MP3, so I did the steps above, fixing that. PERHAPS all that had to do with the problem of posting in my thread having gone away. Now why Chrome had the problem and not Brave, and then later all browsers had the problem and now Chrome doesn't (and probably the others don't either, but I haven't checked) I can't guess.

    So, immediately after posting the above OP, I go back to my thread and OMG, I can post (and did). This using Chrome. I can't imagine what the issue is/was... I had not seen your reply, LIGHTNING UK!
  11. OK, I can post now using Chrome. Suddenly today I had the same problem I had before, when I put my cursor in the Reply box, it would disappear after 1/2 second. Before, my workaround was to use Brave Browser, but it too now would bork out in 1/2 second. Same with Edge and IE! I then posted in Forum issues, came back to this thread immediately and suddenly I can post. Strange stuff... OK, so I'm pretty confused right now. I have my new burner, an external BR burner that supports M-Disc, whatever that is... a Pioneer BDR-XS07S. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B081R74KVW/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 I had been having problems burning discs with my old LG DVD-R burner from 2016: LG GE24NU40BK 24x DL USB 2.0 External Drive A few Verbatim CDR's burned with it from brand new originals would not play in my CD players. So that in tandem with the issue in my OP here (stalling when analysing perfectly find discs, 2 of them) had me thinking the LG drive had problems, using a disc cleaning solution didn't fix it, so I bought the Pioneer. Now I'm having problems using the Pioneer burner! I'll be burning a CD using Imgburn and get an error. This has happened several times last night. To complicate issues, I was running low on CD blanks and ordered and received a 100 pack of Verbatim blanks, receipt date Mar. 15, 2021. I had some Verbatim left over but mixed the new ones with the old ones on spindles and don't know how to figure out what's "new" and what's from the stock I still had. So, all kinds of things could play into the burn errors: Bad discs, problem drive(s), cables, cable adapters (I'm using the Thunderbolt 3 port on this laptop for the external drives, requiring a USB-C connection). Yes, I'm kind of flummoxed here. I have around 8 bad discs now. Last night I resorted to turning on Verify when reading or writing with Imgburn. It takes twice as long (something like that) but I figure I can at least get assurance that my reads/writes are going to work. I figure I should isolate the problem. Is it the new verbatim discs? Is it the new Pioneer BR burner? Is it a cable? A connection (port issue on the computer)? An adapter? I'm thinking I should maybe buy some new discs elsewhere in order to test the theory that the new Verbatim discs I ordered are problematical. They are: Verbatim CD-R Blank Disc 700MB 80 Minute 52x for Data and Music - 100 PK Spindle FFP https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003ZDNZSI/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  12. Well, I'm gratified I can post here at least. Here's my issue: I started a thread on March 13: I was using my default browser, Chrome, on Windows 10 laptop. No issues. But after several posts I suddenly could not reply to the post. When I put my cursor into the reply box, even before typing anything sometimes it would bork out, disappear. I tried a different browser (Brave Browser), no problem. I posted that anomaly in the thread and somebody or several people said they'd had problems in Chrome on the Imgburn Forums. So, as I continued my usage of the thread I did NOT use Chrome and was fine. Today, I want to post again in the thread and I find I have the same can't post in that thread issue with every browser I try: Chrome, Brave, Edge, IE. I'm signed in OK. What could possibly be the issue? Thanks for your help.
  13. Well, I could swear I was doing fine using Chrome in this thread early on but right now can read posts fine, just can't post... so I copy/pasted the URL into one of my alternate browsers, which is Brave Browser. Works here. Besides running Brave sometimes, I run Chrome (recommended by the New York Times, which I'm subscribed to, online version). Stopped using Firefox because it slowed to a crawl and I didn't want to bother troubleshooting why. Update on the burner issue: I concluded the burner's not working OK (anymore), so bought a Pioneer BDR-XS07S, just received and haven't unboxed it yet. Not cheap but should suit me a lot better. For one thing it's USB powered, which really helps and makes it FAR more portable than that LG, which doesn't even support BR. It's also slot loading, which is IMO a really good feature. I'm going to plug it into a Thunderbolt 3 port on this laptop, but I don't know if the drive can even support SS speeds, i.e. 4GBPS much less 48GBPS. I've got to re-rip at least 2 CDs that I ripped a week or two ago. The burns I made with those .BIN rips won't play!
  14. I've had pretty good luck with CDs, DVD-Rs in terms of longevity. I have been using Verbatim CD-Rs recently. I can't recall playing a disc that used to work and doesn't anymore.
  15. The CD I had the initial problem with has only one scratch, very short and very minor, tiny. I mean, the disc looks new and it's clean. However, using the same burner I had a similar problem, this time with a brand new disc and Track 5. Now, I ripped the problem discs (i.e. the discs that the LG burner was failing to read) with the internal burner on my mini-tower system as a workaround. I then modified CD Text (or added it entirely) as is my wont (I have some code that lets me do this with great ease, I wrote it myself in Visual Foxpro), then burned some copies with the problem burner. That burner didn't IIRC have problems before, or if it did, it was very rare. Now, I see that 3 of the burns I did over the weekend won't play in my 301 disk Pioneer player. So, something's up. If I read/write with this burner using Imgburn I will have to utilize Verify for both actions. I figure I should buy a new drive, stop using this one. Track 3 on the Frank Sinatra disc that the problem burner couldn't properly analyze sounds fine on a disc read by my alternate burner. I'm virtually certain that it's the LG burner that's not working properly, not a disc problem. Now, I saw reference to CD Text in above comments. I have noticed that in reading (when creating a BIN image) discs that have NO CD Text, Imgburn indicates when beginning the analysis process it says it's reading CD Text... this although there is none on the disc. Anyway, as I said, utilizing the Maxell 340 optical drive cleaning system didn't stop Imgburn from stalling on Track 3 of the Frank Sinatra CD (OP). I can think of no alternative to stop using the problem drive, other than utilizing Verify every time. Even so, the problem, whatever it is, I would think is apt to get worse, not better. For some reason I couldn't post this using my default browser (I tried last night) ... today I'm using Brave Browser to post this. Using Chrome, I would start a reply and it would bounce out of it immediately. I have no idea what's up with that.
