  1. Thanks much.... just ordered some Verbatim Data Life Plus. Supposedly has the AZO special dye or ink. Take care and again, very grateful for your patience and help.
  2. Hi, Still looking for a reliable brand of DVD to use for recording and coping from. I saw this on Wikepedia (copied and pasted) and looks like almost everything is now owned by CMC. ....... or is the AZO brand still good or what recommendations might you have? Thanks! CMC Magnetics Corporation (Chinese: 中環股份有限公司) is a Taiwanese company that manufactures optical discs. Established in 1978, its factories are located in Taiwan, China (Memorex, HP, Philips, TDK, Maxell) and Hong Kong (Memorex, Philips). In December 2015, Taiyo Yuden, one of the inventors of the recordable CD and inventor of the original cyanine dye for CD-R, sold its optical disc brand and intellectual property to CMC Magnetics, ending its own production in Japan. [1] Contents 1 Products 2 See also 3 References 4 External links Products[edit] CMC produces CD and DVD storage media products, including CD-R, CD-RW, DVD-R/RW, DVD+R/RW, DVD-RAM, and floppy diskettes. CMC produces the Mr. Data line of optical media, which is or was commonly rebranded and sold by HP, Maxprint, Imation, Memorex, Philips, TDK, BenQ, Verbatim Life Series, Staples, Office Depot, Datamax, Optimum, Auchan and other OEM brands. After Taiyo Yuden sold its optical disc manufacturing business, CMC started the CMC Pro line of optical media, a new line of optical media based on the Taiyo Yuden technology that CMC acquired after Taiyo Yuden left the optical disc market.[2]
  3. dbminter: Thanks a million for your time and patience. You've been so patient with a dunce like me. Yes I do see that one failure but don't know why some still didn't work besides that one. I will start checking for the new median you suggested. I've used these same Verbatim discs for church recording at two churches with little to no problem over many years and the current problem is from a batch of blanks with still about half left.... go figure. One more thing for now... could you or LIGHTNING UK! kindly walk me through that "Build Mode" for reading and burning. As I stated a few posts back, I get where you (in my case) type in "E:\" in the source box and then click the star to the right. In the last time I used it, it seemed that same "E:\" went into the large blank space below it. I forgot if that should be showing (with the original disc in the drive) the contents (files) on that disc or not. I saw just the "E:\ and nothing more. What should appear there? Next step would be to click on the blue (Play) arrow at which time the progress bars (3) show up until completed with the reading step. Following that is one supposed to chose the "Write" mode? And what is to be put in the source or destination boxes.... This is where I got confused. Anyway if done right it again has the progress bars (with new blank disc in drive..... can this be put in just before hitting Play write). When successfully completed I did the verify which is where I had several errors pop up till I just decided it was no good. So again, I would appreciate the help from you fellows once more . Sure glad I found this forum... BTW, I'm in the USA.... Midwest area. Take care and stay well !
  4. Very sorry I don't know which of these many files have what you need so am sending the entire file which were mostly created within 2-3 days. If I need to look for something specific in the files, let mImgBurn.loge know exactly what and I can try to save you the time.
  5. Thank you...sorry for the misunderstanding. BTW could you please recommend two of the best blank DVD products and do either of them offer a disc with a pen/pencil writing surface on them? Will try to send those log files soon.
  6. I know I did it once before but where do I find my log files as I don't see where the "Help" menu is Thanks .. and to dbminter... I used Verbatim and all I can see for type is the big letters VX. Yes please do advise me as the best quality blanks to purchase... I did buy these on line as they have a writing surface on them................so now tell stupid (me) where to get to the help menu and log files. Ooops, I may have not sent this response earlier when I thought I had. For the life of me, I cannot seem to find that "Help" box. I went to imgburn.com and I do not see the word "Help" in the upper right of the page. I've tried the "search" box for the word "Help" and the words "Log files" and it only takes me to pages where those words showed up.... no actual link to where I can get to my log files. Soooo would you mind just "linking" me to the page with Help at the upper right area of the page?! Thank you very much!

  8. Thanks dbminter for your help. To: Lightninb uk! Well I tried your suggestion which seemed pretty simple and straightforward except to a "green horn" here. I used 'build" for mode and typed "E:\" in the "Source box" . Next I clicked on the "+" button. If I remember correctly (from a few days ago now), the "E\" then appeared in the large empty box with nothing further, and it disappeared from the source box. I don't know (don't remember) if there was a suggested destination in the destination box but it may have been DVD_RECORDER . Next I hit the blue arrow button. After some time watching the progress boxes it finished successfully. Now I'm unclear (I need to be led by hand...sorry) what I did next but must have gone to the "Write" mode but don't recall what to put in the "boxes" but do know that it completed writing to a new disc.....after trying the "Verify" it continued to pop up an error box and don't recall what it was. I tried playing it anyway but it repeatedly stalled or jerked so it sorta corresponded to the problem showing up when verifying. I tried the process again with a new disc and I think it finished verifying normally but would not play in one of my DVD players however it played OK in two other cheap DVD players. So I'm very confused as to what is going on. In any case could you please guide me through the steps again with indicating what I should see or do each step of the way including what to pick for each "box" and steps to a completed copy. Thanks so much!
  9. Thanks so much for your stepping in to help.. sorry at this point in time I have not gone completely through your response yet. To answer a couple questions, the DVD I have used is a Verbatim 4.7 Gig and set for 2 hour recording... less than half of that time was used. This is for my church service each Sunday . I record with a Panasonic DMR-EH59 set for the two hour mode. It has worked just fine for a few years now. The disc is brought to the local cable office for playback on the local access channel which has worked fine also. I haven't been aware of the file path or extension till now.... the BIN or ISO. I don't know if this is something selectable when preparing to record so if it got changed, it had to be accidental by inadvertently pressing wrong buttons. (if you google for the manual, it is easily available if you care to give it a look if it helps you.) I do finalize these recordings. BTW this DVD is just one continueous track...not multitrack as far as I understand kt. I tried making a copy with another program and all looked well until the end with an error message of "Copy Failed". It and the imgburn DVD play back fine on my computer as does older recordings but trying to play the failed recording on another DVD player gives error message something like disc not readable. I may attempt the "build" mode as you say but not sure if I can do it correctly at this point. For now, do you have any more insight from what I have respoded with above? (BTW... I don't see how to change the line spacing on this format which is why it is double spaced)
  10. Have done this step many times in past with no problem. Trying the first step of making a DVD copy where you chose "created image file from disc" but an error box pops up saying "Using read mode to create an image file from a multitrack DVD is not supported". I don't know why it doesn't want to work on the disc I'm using. I have done this frequently in the past with the same type of disc with no problem. I can take another disc and it works normally. I'm really green at this so pardon my stupidity. Not sure if it means anything but where it says file destination it shows a BIN extension where others that work show ISO extension. ImgBurn.log
