  1. I've been reading the guides for a couple of hours now and tried the search function and for the life of me can't find where I think I saw what a dvd-r, or dvd+r blank actually holds. In the guides section it says that it'll report the whole size for a dvd+r blank in the description window. I've seen else where different sizes for actual output onto a dvd-r or dvd+r blank. What can each actually hold w/out using a transcoder? This would be helpful so I could set a default output size that will reasonably fit onto a dvd-r or dvd+r blank using any other proggie so that when I use ImgBurn in read mode I can create a copy that will fit onto a dvd-r or +r w/out it telling me I need a dual layer disc or that I have insufficient space on the blank. I swear I thought I saw it in the guides here somewhere. Talking about dvd 5 output which says 4.7gb but actually isn't. Thnx.

    Actual size that dvd-r, or dvd+r disc can hold

    Hi Cynthia. Thnx for coming to the rescue. I knew I saw it some place here. Lot of ground to cover in the guides. What happen to the 4300 n something figure that's posted w/some guides on Shrink, Fab etc...? New findings?
  3. Hi fellas I justed tried to open imgburn and it would hang on searching for scsi/atapi devices and won't open at all. It locks my mouse and I can't move the cursor either. I did take out a burner I had and put in my pioneer 112d. My system has 3 burners now. 1 ide samsung, the sata samsung and now the pioneer 112d. Never b4 had a problem w/imgburn until now like this. Help always appreciated as always. Would try to change settings but can't get into imgburn at all.

    Imgburn hangs;won't open up.

    Hi loco. Just now setting the jumper on the samsung sh-s202j to slave. Everything went well loco. Imgburn's working like a baby as always and my pc's back to normal. Man, these machines are sensitive.
  5. Hi Donta. This was the 2nd one I sent back. They gave me a new 1 on account of the recall they had for those bad 1's they came out with but same issue still stands. Mind you I also had a 115d I had to send back also. It's they're problem. I've covered all the bases w/upgrading firmware and even setting to master etc.. and same issue w/cds. What the heck I'll just burn it into the ground w/dvds like I've been doing for a couple of days now. @Mmalves. Thnx for that tip. I probably would of hit the FAQ'S or something else to figure this out but believe me you saved me time and a possible lil headache. I'll get to it soon.
  6. Hi fellas. Gotta say I was very happy when I now tried the .cue file burning for cds w/Imgburn. It went well at 16 x w/sony cds. At 40 it failed. No problem as I just wanted to try it at 40x. Main thing is that it worked w/my pioneer 112d at 16x w/the .cue file. Here's a log. If anything, can you guys suggest better cd blanks than sony or one's that are more compatible also. Thnx. //****************************************\\ ; ImgBurn Version 2.4.1.0 - Log ; Wednesday, 23 April 2008, 00:37:27 ; \\****************************************// ; ; I 23:22:21 ImgBurn Version 2.4.1.0 started!

  7. Yeh I knew that when I got it and posted about that here. I thought it was the Sony Cds which aren't that bad, but now it seems you might be suggesting it's across the board w/even the top rated media like TY's? None of my other burners have had any problems whatsoever, and they include 2 sammys and the oem lg that came w/my dell. Oh well, at least it's doing a fine job w/dvds. I'm still a lil irked about the cd issue, but hey, nothing's perfect. They should straighten this out though in future models, or just sell the darn thing as a straight up Dvd burner.
  8. Yes I did. Just finished now editing one I left in. Wasn't too worried about it but you never know. Btw that avatar is off the hook. Every time I come on here my neck breaks in that direction distracting me from the post. Lol. I haven't read all the FAQ'S or all the rules, but I'm guessing one needs some more time before loading an avatar correct? I Stood a while last night trying to figure out how to load one from my pc.
  9. Hi Donta. 16x is plenty and just right. Just burned it at 40x to see what my 112d would do w/this media in the new .cue format. Thnx for recommending the TY CDrs. I now know why they've been recommending quality dvd and cd media to burn with believe me.

    Logs of slow burns.

    Hi Cynthia. Ok I read the readme file and followed the directions on there. Still Imgburn doesn't show up in the target device w/.iso burn w/Imgburn. I copied and pasted the file into the shr..k folder and nothing. Quick update. Just had to re-install shr..k and imgburn then follow the read me file. Everything Ok now. Thnx.

    Check out these logs. If you see anything that might contribute to the slow burns then just suggest any possible solutions. /****************************************\\ ; ImgBurn Version 2.4.0.0 - Log ; Saturday, 22 March 2008, 14:20:16 ; \\****************************************// ; ; I 13:34:13 ImgBurn Version 2.4.0.0 started!

    I agree completely... Try here for shirnk w/imgburn http://my.afterdawn.com/locoeng/ Thnx for the heads up guys on this tip. I've been burning like crazy w/Fab not realising that it integrated Imgburn into its burning engine options. It's faster definitely. Loco I'll hit this link to brush up on shr..k w/Imgburn. Loco I downloaded and installed shr..k w/imgburn but I don't see Imgburn in the burn settings or target folder. Just the lil disc w/fire in it under iso. Will it open up Imgburn directly and start to burn?

    Edit: You need to change the Write Speed in DVDFab's settings under 'DVD/Burn'. I think it defaults to 'Recommended' speed. Hi Cynthia. Cynthia I'm using DVDFab Plat to backup and make the .iso only. I'm burning w/Imgburn. Why would the write speed in DVDFAb affect Imgburn? I think what happens is that when Imgburn starts looking for the available drive and tries to lock it there occurs a confusion because of DVDFab being minimized w/the flic in the other tray. I noticed on my last burn that both drives were lighting up when I was burning w/imgburn w/my ide sammy. My sata sammy just had the original flic in it. I put 1 and 1 together and decided to close DVDFab and take the flic out of the other tray b4 burning w/Imgburn. Ok. just checked the setting in Fab it was on 8x. But I just noticed that Fab included Imgburn as a burning engine. I didn't know this. I was doing it separately. Not all at once. On that note why does Fab make the copy and then make the .iso? I would think it would just go ahead and make the .iso and just finish there and make it available to w/e we want to do w/it.

    Not really. Like I mentioned in the other thread I only had my back-up copy app. minimized w/the original in another tray. I would then open Imgburn and click on write image file and then it would search 4 the drive w/blank media. I'll then hit the file folder click on the .iso and hit write. It would come up w/"trying to lock the drive" and I would have to hit continue. It then would proceed. Couple of times I would get what you just saw and the rest were at 8x. I'm going to check the burn setting Cynthia suggested. Just was curious cause I read in another forum that shr..k was updated to include Imgburn as an automatic burning tool like it did w/Nero. If in fact this is true which I was mostly guaranteed it wasn't a fraud, then I started thinking if it happened to me w/my separate app. then why wouldn't it happen w/the former seeing it would be coupled and 2 apps. would be open. Loco can you confirm the joining of Imgburn w/Shr..k as a valid upgrade 4 me? Or is this some pirated thingy going on? Would think Lightning has to know about this 4 sure. Thnx.

    Slow Write Speed

    Ok. I got it. I'll open new thread. Thnx.

    Slow Write Speed

    Ok. Sounds like a good idea. Does Imgburn keep logs of previous burns or does it erase the previous ones and posts the latest? If it keeps them then I could post a log right now in a new thread. If not give me a few and I'll try to simulate exactly what I did and then post that. Cool.

    Slow Write Speed

    Hi Donta. Hi Loco. I'm going to defrag anyway but it's not bad. Also might hold off on the new firmware. Just burned 4 discs w/this burner at 8x and everything good. Seems I have to close any other app. whether I'm using it or not for the burn to go through smooth w/out a hitch. In this case it was my copy/back-up proggie which I minimized but would sometimes have the original in the other drive after it backed it up. @Loco. That asian chic is still rocking but Mmalves new chic is off the hook. Lol...

    Slow Write Speed

    Hi Lightning. My Samsung Sh-S202J SB00 is also burning slower. I noticed a red new sign next to SB01 in the firmware page. Does this mean that's the new firmware 4 my burner? I'm new to this part. Thnx. Also would the check marks in lock volume and enable burn proof in the write option under tools have anything to do w/slowing down my burner? It went from a steady 8 as I usually use to 4x. Btw it fluctuates sometimes and hits 8. Any suggestions always appreciated as always.

    can imgburn burn a data cd-r?

    returned 2, and 2 different models. no more returning as they swear it's not defective anymore. my mistake was the first return where i thought the 115d would b different, and the online site i got the 112d told me to keep it, and get w/e i wanted. i chose the 115d. wrong decision. bottom line is it's always about the money. we try to say it isn't, and think of all sorts of rationalizations, like it's the principle, and so forth, but it's always about the money, no matter how much. you're right though it's not the end of the world. it's brand new in the box though. hint. hint.
  21. went through the search, and really didn't find anything about imgburn being able to burn data onto a cd-r, and if i missed that, i don't know how to do it anyway. do you still have to create an image to burn data onto a cd-r? it's called imgburn 4 a reason. that i'm clear about. i really need help w/this, because i'm trying to see if my burner which is a 112d from pioneer is having issues w/a proggie i'm using, or whether it's an all around problem. have latest firmware 1.24. also read the thread w/the fella having issues w/same burner, and then putting it in different system. don't have luxury to do that, and issue is w/cds anyway. btw i'm using burrrn to burn the cds. my other 2 drives, samsung sata sh-s203b, and samsung sh-s202j have no problems whatsover. thnx.

    can imgburn burn a data cd-r?

    honestly, i'm ptfo about this pioneer myself. 1 4 reading the damn reviews, and they saying it was very good w/slight issues on the cd tip. right there i should of stayed as far away as possible. i pulled the trigger w/the biggest mistake many of us make, thinking it might not b bad, and they've fixed it. i needed to stick to my resolution this new year of taking the suggestions of the more experienced members, and also reviews 4 that matter. i fell asleep on this 1. there's an old saying that says,"you can't str8ten out a crooked branch." i'm stuck w/it now as a back up dvd burner which the damn thing does do well. never again 4 me either. anything else would b pure insanity. i was looking to use it to complement my 20x sammy, and free up the sata port i have my sata sammy in. i'm sticking w/what's working, and probably just snatch another ide sammy, or use my oem from my pc. at least they'll burn everything. i probably can't even chuck it 4 a reasonable price brand new as is.

    can imgburn burn a data cd-r?

    thnx shamus. for a bit there i was totally frustrated, and trying to really give it the benefit of the doubt by process of elimination in regards to any pc hardware problems, as well as any software. i now know what i'd thought all along. it's a crap drive period. end of story. lucky for me i have an extra sammy that's great, and also my 2 original drives that came w/my pc. oh well. you live, and you learn.

    can imgburn burn a data cd-r?

    thnx lightning. that audio feature on your new version should just about add another 2 or 3 cherries to imgburn. i'll check that discovery feature out. btw that 112d just outright has cd burning issues period. i even returned the 115d cause of that. took the 112d back cause pioneer had a recall, which hasn't done much obviously. just a note in case you get more threads about it. i see ther's 1 mab 2 here, and a whole bunch in other forums.

    can imgburn burn a data cd-r?

    i got that. i guess i'm waiting for that new version of imgburn w/the audio feature. it will create an image of a music cd on a cd-r, but it'll only play in my stand alone dvd player. correct? also tried in vain to see what the discovery feature is about, and couldn't find anything in search, or just put wrong keyword. there's no guide on this. i think? can you please help me w/this. appreciated as always.
