  2. Guys, update.

    Before i bought DVD+R DL, i went on the doom9 forum to make sure that was absolutely no way for my current DVD9 project to be burnt on DVD-R DL like you all said.


    Well there was a very simple way to do it as described here:



    I didn't reauthor anything, just used VobBlanker and that was it.

    Produced DVD-R DL works flawlessly here on standalone Pioneer DV636D




  3. Don't get the wrong message guys, i really do appreciate you trying to help with my issue ;)

    It's just that i feel there is most likely another alternative to buying new media, i just don't know which yet.


    - I've already burnt huge movies on this exact media with no problem whatsoever.

    - I'm only using 98% of the disc with this VIDEO_TS folder so there is a little space of action available i guess.




  4. there is only one solution- use +R DL discs, -R DL dont work for dvd films as you can't set the layer break


    Well that's incorrect, i've already burned 2 of these exact Verbatim DVD-R DL media with huge movies on them and they work perfeclty.

    Isn't there maybe an authoring software that could re-author my VIDEO_TS folder and put a layer break at the correct position?




  5. Thanks guys for all the reports on the media but that doesn't help much.

    Anyway, you say the best DVD+R DL are from Verbatim, so I expect manufactured from Mitsubishi (MKM) and the very DVD-R DL i'm trying right now is manufactured by Mitsubishi too (MKM mediaID).

    Also, it's the only media i have available now, i really wish there is a solution.

    LIGHTNING, blutach, hoping to hear from you ;)




  6. Hey Guys, i need help as well.

    I'm trying to burn a VIDEO_TS folder on a Verbatim DVD-R DL (MCC) 8.5GB media.

    The size of the folder is 8 410 038 272.


    When i load it in IMGBurn, i get the same error as the previous user : Unable to find any cells that could be used etc..

    The VIDEO_TS folder contains 3 movies of around 50 minutes each with no menu and no chapter.

    It plays fine when I open it in ZoomPlayer or WinDVD in folder mode.



    When I press F6 before inserting the folder in IMGBurn (, the log states the following:


    I 03:31:57 ImgBurn Version started!

    I 03:31:57 Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition (5.1, Build 2600 : Service Pack 2)

    D 03:32:57 GenerateFileLBA_DVDVideo - Start (With Padding)/End LBA Match - File: VTS_02_2.VOB


    Right after this i get the 'Unable to find cells' warning message.

    Unfortunately, It doesn't seem to give a Potential LB position at all so I am stuck here.


    I tried playing with VobBlanker, and when i open the folder in it, it looks like the picture attached.

    After that i'm kinda lost regarding what i should do, so any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks a lot,




    Edit: Btw, when i use the Pgcedit tutorial by blutach, i get the second picture and cannot set the layer break either.

    Edit2: Here is the media as detected by IMGburn:

  7. Hey All,

    I don't like the looks of the splash screen and would like to disable it.

    I'm not looking for extra launch speed as i know it does stuffs in the background while the splash screen is shown anyway. I just don't like the looks of it.

    Is there a registry key somewhere or a trick to hide it?




  8. Woah this thread indeed got bigger since I last came in here! O_o

    Have you guys found a good, free and not bloated software to burn Data DVDs?


    Really, RNMax is so old and quite buggy (crash on exit for me) that it would be fantastic to see such a feature in IMGBurn.


    But until then, if you know a good prog, that'll do just fine ;)




  9. LIGHTNING UK!, what do you think of this idea to allow ImgBurn to be able to record DATA DVDs?

    The interface of the very old RecordNow Max was perfect for it, but RNMX is very outdated and doesn't work with recent recorders (such a Matshita UJ-830s, etc..) so it would be extremely pleasant to be able to burn such DVDs with ImgBurn.

    The interface looked like this:


    See you!
