Problem with MD5 creation and split images

Recommended Posts

Another possible bug I encountered:

 

I have MD5 file creation for images enabled in the settings. That works great for normal images (one big file). However if that image is split...

 

Example:

One has read and stored an split image and created the MD5 digest.

 

DVDImage.i00

DVDImage.i01

DVDImage.i02

DVDImage.mds

DVDImage.md5

 

But when looking inside the .md5 file, there's something like that:

# MD5 checksum generated by ImgBurn v2.5.5.0 (http://www.imgburn.com)


0123456789abcdef0123456789abcdef *DVDImage.i00

 

ImageBurn basically slaps the name of the first part on the MD5 of the whole (unsplit) file. I would have expected multiple MD5 sums of the split parts for easy external verification.

 

(I don't think a log is really needed here).

It's just not designed with split files in mind. It generates the MD5 of the image as a whole and is fed its data before the lower level code that decides which file gets written to.

Maybe you could state that in the option's tooltip (if there's no intent to change it)? Possibly even disable MD5 generation if a split image is to be created...
