Synchronizing Cache Takes So Long When Only Little Data Is Written To DVD-RW?

Recommended Posts

Something I've seen before with many different drives and types of DVD-RW discs is if you cancel a write after only writing a little bit of data, ImgBurn stays at 99% Synchronizing Cache for a really long time.

 

 

Has anyone else noticed this and, if so, anyone know why it does this when only a little bit of data is written to the disc?

 

 

Thanks!

In 'chat' db... seriously? You should know better :P

 

Once a track has been reserved (as is the case for DVD-R and DVD-RW), if you cancel the burn early the drive will often end up zero-filling the area it didn't finish burning to when that command is issued to it. So basically, it's pointless to cancel it!

Well, it's not a bug. And, I don't consider it a Support issue as it's not an issue with ImgBurn but with the DVD-RW itself. So, neener! :thumbup:

Technical questions (related to anything ImgBurn does - be it right or wrong) are always better in one of the ImgBurn forums rather than chat (as I don't pay much attention to that forum).
