ISF Newbie (1/5)

  1. I have a problem with WinExplorer under 64bit Win 7: I inserted a BlueRay or DVD media and want to see the content (approx 12 big zip files) in Windows Explorer. But WinExp does not show them (on the right side in details list). If I click on the drive in WinExplorer nothing happens. Only the Media label is shown beside the drive letter on the left side of WinExp. All other tools (e.g. Beyond Compare, Double Commander, Explorer++) show the the containing files successfully. Even a "dir" in CommandPrompt shows them. I can copy them to my hard disk. So the media BlueRay/DVD is not damaged. File System is UDF As I remember all worked fine a couple of weeks ago. Maybe I accidentially switched some settings. So why are they not listed in Windows Explorer? I burned them with ImgBurn This problem occurs with my two drives (LG and Asus) but not with my hard disks. So this seems to me an optical drive problem. Peter
  2. Occasionally when I burn a set of archive files on a data DVD (with UDF file system) then I notice after an officially succesful burn session that the previous burn was not that successful as ImgBurn pretends. Sometimes long filenames were silently cut. What I would expect is a warning popup prompt BEFORM burn session starts with a message like "Warning: filename "foo.....bar" is 7 chars too long and will be cut. Do you want to proceed? Can this feature be embedded in the next release? Thank you Peter
  3. Is there a way to find out the file system (ISO9960, Joliet, UDF, or combination of them) which was used when a DVD/BlueRay was originally burned? Even more: Can I find out the UDF version (if UDF was used)? Is it true that the file system support is a matter of the operating system and NOT of the hardware? So lets say all Windows 7 systems can (with burner hardware from the last 5 Years) read UDF v2.60 medias? Correct? I want to use UDF v2.60 for data file backups. Any disadvantages? Peter
  4. I have got an audio CD where I found only some .cda files on it. They can be played in physical CD player. Assume I have some *.mp3 files on my hard disc and want to burn them in the same format as the mentioned existing CDs. What do I have to do in ImgBurn zu achieve this? With other words: Which "Mode" and options do I have to select? Do I have to convert the *.mp3 files first or is there an autoconvert inside ImgBurn? Peter
  5. Assume I have a couple of independent *.iso images. Each of them can be put on an own CD/DVD, then the computer booted and the actual application run. Think of e.g. Clonezilla *.iso, AVG Antivir *.iso and GParted *.iso Now I prefer not to burn 3 CDs for the three applications mentioned above. Instead I want to put the three *.iso on ONE CD/DVD then wrap them into an "Outer"/Wrapper" operating system. When booted the outer operation system should let the user choose which of the inner *.iso should be run afterwards. The menu selection can be simple. Is this possible somehow? Can ImgBurn (or another application you may know) generate such a selection boot code? Peter
  6. Ok, I know, I cannot ADD more files to an already burned DVD/BlueRay but what about deleting one of them? I can imagine that there is a way to just delete such an existing file by overwriting the occpied space on the DVD/BlueRay by zeros. Or - alternatively - by overwriting the corresponding content table entry. is this possible? if yes: How exactly? Is your solution working with Jolliet AND UDF structures or only one of them? Peter
  7. When a DVD+RW media is new and I want to burn some stuff onto it then the media is formatted/erased at first. How can I later manually force ImgBurn to re-format/re-erase a DVD+RW? I found no corrsponding menu or checkbox. Peter
  8. I oftentimes save AVI files on a DVD+RW media and selected ISO9660 + UDF as file system. The AVI files (multiple files per disc media) are almost always (much) smaller than 2GB. When I start the burning process then Imgburn always suggests me with a prompt popup window to switch to ISO9660 + Joliet file system. I prefer UDF because it is newer and more comfortable. Almost all new hardware drives and OSs understand this. So why does IB prompts me for this old fashioned file system? How can I tell IB to avoid this prompt in future? Peter
  9. When I currently start ImgBurn, then always automatically "write" mode is selected. How can I tell IB to start automatically in "Build" mode? Peter
  10. As you know there are two manufacturing styles of BlueRay media: HTL (more expensive but more robust and presumably longer life) and LTH (cheaper, more sensitive to temperature changes and sun light) How can I find out if a given BlueRay disc manufactured in LTH or HTL style? Of cause the original product packaging, invoice and seller contact address is not available any more. I could imagine that the serial number burned on the disc give this information. Is this true? How can I track down this information? Peter
  11. Can ImgBurn work with BlueRay medias? What is the recommended file system here (for archiving big files)? UDF? Which version? 1.02? Peter
  12. The "Free space" value seems to be available only for "write" mode but NOT for "build" mode. Or did I miss something? I do not see "Free space" at least in the "Device" tab in "build" mode.
  13. Hmm, that is the official but NOT the real size! Lets say I have a DVD+RW which has an official capacity of 4700372992 bytes. That is what is displayed in ImgBurn info box. Ok, now I switch to "Build" mode and dragged 10 (big) archive files onto the ImgBurn window. The total sum of all these 10 files is 4700312452 bytes. So it should fit on the DVD+RW and I started the burn process. But then ImgBurn stops and warns me that the media capacity is too small for burning all the stuff. I guess ImgBurn needs some extra amount of bytes to burn the management info data onto the DVD media as well. But how much is this (e.g. for MODE1/2048 ISO9660 + Joliet)? Can ImgBurn display this REALLY AVAILABLE capacity as well? The warning tells me something about 2.295.104 Sectors. How much ist this in bytes? Peter
  14. Is there a way to find out how many bytes fit exactly on the currently inserted media? I mean not by investigate it somewhere in Internet/Wikipedia but by clicking a menu in ImgBurn? Peter
  15. I want to let ImgBurn always overwrite the current Log file when burning a new session. Currently all log infos were appended to the previous log entries. How can I switch from "append" to "overwrite" ? Peter
