    Does ImgBrn call StarOpen ?

    I am trying to track down an error which shows up repeatedly in my Event Viewer : The following boot-start or system-start driver(s) failed to load: StarOpen According to some forums, this driver is associated with some CD/DVD burning programs. Is this something that ImgBrn calls? There does not seem to be any negative effect of having this error in my Event Viewer, whatever program calls StarOpen seems to work just fine when it is not loaded. I regularly use ImgBurn to burn DVDs and BR, and it works very well. Am just curious if there is ever a call to this driver, and if so, is there anything I can do to get rid of this error. Am running Win7 64-bit. Thanks, DD.

    What means that warning (v.

    Not to flog the dead horse, but I thought I would post my own results. With the SPTD driver in place, my average speed burning DVDs using ImgBrn in XP SP3 (32-bit) was 5.6x. When I removed the SPTD driver, I was pretty surprised to see that my burner (Pioneer DVD-RW DVR-112D) jumped to an average burn speed of 11.2x. When you uninstall Daemon Tools, it does not uninstall the SPTD driver. However, you can download the latest Duplex Secure SPTD driver, run the installer, and it will ask you what you want to do. Simply click uninstall, reboot, and you are done. http://www.duplexsecure.com/en/downloads Thanks, DD.

    ImgeBurn Features

    Cool, man, thanks for the reply. Music, forgot about that. But don't need that, so that is great if that is all you can think of. I bought J. River Media Center for all my music needs, it does everything including burning to various formats. I haven't used Nero since I stumbled onto this product, so that is great. My version of Nero came with my burner, and it was getting mighty old. DD.

    ImgeBurn Features

    Hi, Someone else asked the question I had in mind the day before I was going to ask. Are there any other features of Nero which ImgBurn can't do? I never use multi-session (blank DVDs are too cheap to bother), so that is fine. Thus far, I have successfully burnt 3 DVDs with ImgBurn; one movie backup, one file which was originally a DAA file converted to ISO using your Build feature, and one MDF file also converted to ISO. Great stuff, everything is working! Next up, I have loads of data backups to try out, which look pretty straightforward to me with ImgBurn. Am I missing anything? As far as I can see, I can ditch Nero permanently. Is there a Feature Comparison list or something like that? Thanks, DD.
