    Warning on illegal characters

    Behold One thing I have learned over the years is that users will always find a way to do stuff they shouldnt be able to. See included pictures + part of the log I 19:38:58 Destination File: \\r2-backup\xxxx\xxxxx\xxxx\test X test : Vol 7 (2011) AVC BD25.iso I 19:38:58 Destination Free Space: 345 143 738 368 Bytes (337 054 432,00 KiB) (329 154,72 MiB) (321,44 GiB) I 19:38:58 Destination File System: NTFS I 19:38:58 File Splitting: Auto I 19:38:58 Writing Image... I 19:57:43 Operation Successfully Completed! - Duration: 00:18:44 I 19:57:43 Average Write Rate: 19 819 KiB/s (4.5x) - Maximum Write Rate: 22 006 KiB/s (5.0x) I wonder where the data went though since the file is 0 bytes. Edit: the data is obviously tied to the 0 byte file as space was freed when I deleted it.
  2. Thank you for making such a wonderful program. Yesterday I made an ISO. Did a bit of cut/pasting for the filename. I failed to see that the filename contained a ":" in it. Imgburn started it's process as normal, but when it was done (and unfortunately I had deleted the sourcefiles) it only left a 0 byte file. The name of the file was the text before the ":". Would be great if imgburn gave a warning when target filename contained characters that could potentially cause problems.

    On-The-Fly Disc to Disc Burning

    yes cd-cd copy on the fly is def something I long for. Only reason I have to keep ugly/bloated/crappy nero installed.

    Always on top option

    First of all I want to say how much I appreciate imgburn. With the addition of the build mode it became even better. First burningprog I install on a freshly installed machine is always imgburn. One thing im missing though. The ability to lock imgburn to always stay on top. This would be a great addition, especially when using drag-and-drop to add files. Atm I use a small util called powermenu to make imgburn stay on top. If you were to implement this it should be an easily accessable checkbox so you could turn it on the second you start adding files, and off the second you are done. I also have a suggestion if you ever plan on adding more options to the build part. A totalcmd-like interface (www.ghisler.com) to easily select/tag/move/sort the files you want to burn. Keep up the great work.

    Burn DATA DVDs or DATA CDs?

    A feature to create a data cd/dvd would be great. What I love about imgburn is its simplicity. It's not bloatware like nero. If you've tried nero7, you will really understand the use of the word "bloat" If mr lightningUK were to add this feature, there is a few things I think would be important. 1. Stay simple, only open some sort of extra window for adding files if needed. A good suggestion for such a window would be someting that resembled a filemanager like totalcommander. Of course a VERY simple one with functions like copy/makedir. Idea would be to "copy" files over to a virtual drive, and then press burn. I think this would be the easiest and most effective way of creating your cd/dvd structure. 2. Stay simple. Yes I know I already mentioned this, but it's very important. At the end I just want to thank LightningUK for making such excellent software. dvddec, and now imgburn, is always one of the first things I install. It's stable, easy to use, doesn't drink memory like a raving lunatic and doesn't mess up anything. I am hoping that in the future, more programmers will realize that there is a need for speed/effectiveness instead of lots of fancy crap noone uses. I hope one day I will be able to ditch all the burning bloat and have 1 small, effective program that suits all my needs.
