ISF Newbie

ISF Newbie (1/5)

  1. Yup. OK, point taken I've updated it and one of the reasons was that I reformatted a laptop for a young bloke I know, which was full of bloatware(Roxio+Nero+Norton+various other big chunks of wasted space) and it seemed a bit stupid to be telling him that all he needed was the lastest version of VLC and ImgBurn and AVG and he'd be blown away...while I'm still running a prehistoric version of both cheers blokes thanks for the info...once again
  2. Please update to the latest ImgBurn version If it aint broke don't fix it. That's why I dont have the latest version. The version I'm running does me fine, I use about 5% of the available functions: "Click/Drag/Write/ Wait for Lame music /Close. Simple. Constant updating is for those that need to do it and those that have too. What more can a newer version offer an average user like me? I'm very happy with this one as it is. Thankyou to L/UK for the advice and the other posters. Cheers.
  3. Reading advice on updating firmware, I've been chasing about the place for an update for my: HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GSA-H44N. I found this at the LG site:-GSA-H44N_RB02(EW).ZIP In the read me text it says:- Critical Instructions: (to be followed carefully) 1. Connect the drive as
  4. Sorry for taking so long to reply and thankyou for your advice. I wasn't doing quick erase's as I wasn't given that option. I used to be given that option(on my older version of Img) and would usually skip the Q/erase option and just overwrite as you say above. I've just installed the latest version and I'll see how that goes . I have a copy of an OS that I want to burn and this is in the read me text:- BURN BOOTABLE .ISO AT VERY SLOW SPEED ( use ISO-Burner or BURNCDCC ) ... AND INSTALL FROM BOOT Now I've not done this before and I was wondering should I let Img do it at it's current default speed(I'm guessing here) or would I be advised to burn it at Img's slowest speed? I'm heading over to FAQ's and the Guides right now so I'm assuming I'll find the answer there anyway! Thanks again for replying. cheers
  5. I'm running ImgBurn Version , and for some reason everytime I use a DVD+RW (Verbatims), IMG wants to format the disc. I used to get the message: You will lose all data etc if you proceed with burn. and I'd always click ok but now I don't seem to be getting that option. What am I doing wrong or am I missing something here? I installed it on some friends laptop and while impressed with the ease of IMG they queried why it wanted to format everytime they put a dvd in and just wanted to burn an avi or similar. I've had a quick look through the FAQ's and guides and I may of overlooked an entry, if so a link to it will suffice. If not a bit advice I'm sure will do the trick. Thank you. (I'm assuming a log is not neccasary here)
  6. Yes I think there is, but I think the defaults probably OK as I haven't had an issue with the playback volume with it. In ImgBurn you get that popup which says: "I notice you haven't set a volume level. Being the nice programme that I am would you like Imgburn to set it for you?" Or words to that effect. That is why I wondered if there was a way to manually set the volume level of the burn.
  7. Hmmm, OK thanks for that info. I don't have the problem with ConvertXtoDVD burns, but I only use that if I have to re- encode an avi for playing on a normal stand alone, the rest of my burns are handled as I said by ImgBurn. Righto, I'll try an avi burn on ConvertX and see if the volume is as low as my normal burns. Ta again.
  8. This is a query rather than a problem. Completed burns (AVI's mainly) consistently have lower volume levels than the normal listening level on my TV. When someone changes over from playback to TV they get lifted out of the room by the volume level. I let ImgBurn set the volume level but I'd like to adjust it up a bit . Whats the procedure for this?
  9. I had problems not dissimilar to yours and the lads here gave me advice like they've given you and I checked my media(Verbatims) and I updated my firmware and finally after all that I purchased a new drive and wha-heyyy all was good with the world again click and drag my files and wait for that corny bit of music to light up your day signalling a successful burn.

    Burn issues

    So what exactly do I do with it? It's DL now and once it has, I do ... I'm not an advanced user, advanced in years perhaps but definitely not advanced in knowledge. So I don't want to do a bad "Flash". I'm sure your totally sick of noobs and I'm sick of being one, but hell if everyone knew what to do you guys would become redundant

    New drive fitted and this is the log...Success! Thank you for taking time to assist me with this. Now do I need to return the 'write type' from incremental to DAO and should I take it off auto and just set the speed at 4x for all future burns? Cheers Cul I 13:38:39 ImgBurn Version started!

  13. Nah, much further north than steak 'n kidney thank christ, up on the far north coast, never actually been to Sydney. We've had great rain up here though and hopefully the dams'll cop a bit of it. Been yonks since we've had a wet this late in the year. There's a great video on youtube of Pearl Jam doing a concert in Melbourne and Eddie Veder starts out by saying it's been yonks since they played there and for a yank he nearly pulled it off too. I'll try to get the drive in tomorrow and get IMG running properly hopefully. Thats if the tech guy can get done in time. cheers Cul.
