  1. It worked. The image is now being burned on layer 0 only. Thanks again LUK, I LOVE your programme.
  2. Ah, I get it! I'm gonna try right away. Thanks LUK
  3. Yes, ImgBurn prompts alright, but when I continue I still end up with 2 layers used. Or is that because of your second remark, namely that the image is just a bit to big for a single layer of a DL disk? In other words, if I shrink the files just a little bit more, will ImgBurn write to layer zero only? If so, how much more would I have to shrink the files?
  4. I recently started copying DVD's without shrinking them to single layer size first, but very soon found myself in the posession of a lifetime worth of coasters . You guessed it, I hadn't read all those suggestions about using Verbatim DL disks yet. Now I do, of course, but I am still stuck with a stack of Traxdata DL disks (which are Riteks). The problem with those disks is that they work fine until the layer break. So I had this idea of just using layer 0, and so essentially use these DL disks as SL disks. I have tried to, but no matter what I do, I end up with 2 half used layers, the second being unreadable. Is there a way to force a DL disk to be burned asif it were a SL disk? Can anybody help me?

    This may seem simple but...

    So Polopony, if I understand it correctly, there is not really a technical problem, it's just that it takes much more time than building an image. Or is it that ImgBurn would have to check again and again for protection? I want to stress again I'm just curious about the technicalities, I don't need file copying.

    No, this is not about circumventing copy protection, and this is not about Decrypter. I wouldn't dare to go there again . I obviously have not made myself clear. Let me try in another way. ImgBurn can and will make an image of an unprotected DVD, but it will refuse to do so if the DVD is protected, right? My question (and Jason T's, I think) is why the same principle cannot be applied to copying (or refusing to) the original files instead of creating an image. Again, this is not about trying to bring Decrypter back to life. I am not even interested in the option of copying the files. I'm just curious.

    OK, back to being serious, and to the original issue: Like Jason T I don't understand why ImgBurn can't copy the files from a DVD to the hard drive. Polopony replied that it will not because of the copyright protection, but is that really the (only) reason? After all, ImgBurn won't make an image of a protected DVD, but it will of an unprotected one. So why can't ImgBurn copy the files if the DVD is not protected, and refuse to when it is?

    Hey boss, isn't it time you kick your people back to work? They start threatening me again!

    The Dutch survived the Spanish, the French and the Germans, so hell, what's a few gators more or less. They taste great, by the way. Incidentally, why do I have the feeling we're completely off track here, as far as the original issue is concerned? Never mind, I'm still glad I found ImgBurn, so I forgive you. Isn't that nice of me?

    No harm done indeed. I survived the shots, the burial and the gators, but it sure took a long time to get home and wash that mud off.

    Please guys, don't shoot! I visited the ImgBurn forum for the first time, and impulsively posted a reply without being aware yet of the do's and don'ts. They are now VERY obvious, thank you. It won't happen again.

    Hi all, Whether or not it is illegal to copy a CD or DVD depends very much on local legislation. In Holland for example it is perfectly legal to make a copy for your own use (well, for as long as it lasts.....). That means I can use a program like AnyDVD, which makes copyright protection invisible for ImgBurn (or CloneDVD, or Nero, or whatever other program you wish to use). The only problem is that I can't use the verify option, because it always returns errors. But then ImgBurn never let me down, and it saves time too. ImgBurn by the way is so kind as to warn the user for this problem if it detects AnyDVD is running. Another option is using DVD Decrypter. At least until version 3.5.2.0 (which I have) Decrypter ignores copyright protection even without a program like AnyDVD. Mind you, I don't encourage anyone to make illegal copies of DVD's (according to local legislation), either to the hard drive or to a DVD. If you decide to do something illegal, it is entirely at your own risk.
