ImgBurn Settings: Build, Folders, Root Content


Recommended Posts



Firstly THANKS to LUK! for this great program.


I have read through the last fifteen pages or so- I am trying to create a CD/RW that has files (and folders). When I try to include only the main folder (as a single folder), the burn works but creates an entire (folder) tree structure with all preceding folders. I checked the Tools --> Settings --> Build tab, and the "Don't Prompt Root Content" is NOT checked. Of course I tried everything else I could think of.


All I want to do is to copy one folder on to a CD with everything in that folder (below) to the root directory of the CD.


I have tried this four times with all combinations of settings. I always get the following:


Trying to get single folder F7G --> CD(RW) from this tree


C:\FoldA\FolderB\FolderC....\FolderF\F7G\Files1...Files7 and Dir1 Dir2 Dir3


Instead of X:\Files1..Files7 and Dir1 Dir2 Dir3 [This is what I want!]


I get X:\FoldA\FolderB\FolderC....\FolderF\F7G\Files1...Files7 and Dir1 Dir2 Dir3



I used to use Nero because it kept he file dates the same, whereas the XP Explorer would change the file dates/times to current.


I noticed that ImgBurn had the capability to burn files, with the option to keep the date/times and thought this GREAT program would now have 1001 uses (for me!)


The first time I tried this I remember a pop-up alert asking if the file folder contents should be in the root (or something like that), I replied yes, but I don't get that prompt anymore.


Your assistance in this would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for the quick reply.


Do you have 'Preserve Full Paths' selected?


If so, uncheck it.




In the Tools --> Settings --> General --> Advanced box

the Create MDS - Preserve Full Pathnames is NOT checked.


I couldn't find any other reference in the Settings.




EDIT: Sorry- I see it now in the Options. Thanks again!!
