OpenCandy

Dear sir/madam,

I deeply hate it, that the new version of ImgBurn 2.5.8.0 is with OpenCandy malware. Altough I think, that I opted out all additional programs during the install, my search results from Google were redirected by another search machine after the ImgBurn 2.5.8.0 install and I cannot change that. I rather pay a small amount with my credit card for a latest ImgBurn version without malware, adware and/or potential unwanted program(s) than that I end up with all sorts of malware caused in this case by OpenCandy after ImgBurn install. Now I use ImgBurn 2.5.7.0 after a clean Windows install with every program installed again, but I rather have a latest version of ImgBurn [without the OpenCandy (and Conduit software?) and similar malware].

Kind regards, Mike098.

Dear sir,

Thank you very much for your information, I now have version 2.5.8.0. I tried all major burning programs, but your program is the best, without doubt. I only cannot burn DVD-RW and DVD-R DL.

Kind regards, Mike098.

I have burnt numerous dual layer DVDs, but mine are +R.....wonder why that should be ?

DVD+R DL allows you to set your own layer break position in the ImgBurn options, but DVD-R DL, I believe, has a static layer break and cannot be changed.  So, you'll get a pause in the video that may not be seamless and cannot be changed to somewhere else should you desire it.

 

I don't know if they even still make DVD-R DL as its limitations and less compatiblity with DVD players made it less desirable for use.  I tried a few to test with and quickly abandoned them in favor of DVD+R DL.

 

Hey, are you the same reddwarf4ever I've also seen and helped on the ConvertXToDVD forums?  :)

Yes guilty as charged, I use this where possible on forums, hopefully not a bad thing....:/

the multi episode DVDs I create with CXtoDVD sometimes have one episode that refuses to play, found out this is the layer break.....using IMGBurn I choose a layer break that has the IFO file, no problems since :thumbsup:

 

Good to meet you.....:shakehands: they didn’t have a social distancing Moji

ch3vr0n from the VSO forums is also here, too.

 

I always use ImgBurn to burn the VIDEO_TS output created by CXD.  I like to be able to set my own layer break, if using a DVD+R DL where it's needed.  Plus, I like to do things like add the containers in a DVD I create to the root directory of the disc I burn so they're "backed up" on the DVD I've created.

 

Wherever possible, when prompted and allowed, I like to set my layer break on a .BUP file.  It's essentially the same as setting the layer break on an .IFO file.

I sometimes mention on the CXD forum that people try ImgBurn for the actual burning of their output to isolate if it's the CXD burn engine that may be their playback problem.  Plus, with ImgBurn, we can get logs, which will show if they're using CMC!  =))

Will bear that in mind, BUP or IFO....thanks

I don't know if it really makes a difference.  I choose BUP over IFO because IFO directs how a DVD is a played.  BUP is just a backup for the IFO's and I doubt it's ever really called upon unless the IFO can't be read.  So, it seems more likely that a BUP file layer break set wouldn't affect actual playback of the DVD.  Again, I don't know that for sure; it's just my preference.
