ISF Newbie (1/5)

  1. I have the latest firmware and use genuine Taiyo Yuden 16x media from rima.com. I never had an issue until I received my latest batch of Taiyo Yuden 16x DVD-R media from rima. I'm not sure if it's the media or the drive. I've been ordering for years from rima but never had an issue. As for OPC, I see a box that says 'Perform OPC Before Write' under the *write* tab in settings. Is this the box I need to check? I've always used the latest version of ImgBurn without any problems. Is this because OPC was always on/checked in previous versions of ImgBurn and the current version has it off/unchecked which could be causing the problems I'm having?
  2. Recently I started getting the following message. Is this a hardware or ImgBurn problem/issue? I 11:54:38 ImgBurn Version started! I 11:54:38 Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition (5.1, Build 2600 : Service Pack 2) I 11:54:38 Total Physical Memory: 523,568 KB - Available: 328,536 KB I 11:54:38 Initialising SPTI... I 11:54:38 Searching for SCSI / ATAPI devices... I 11:54:38 Found 1 DVD-ROM and 1 DVD
  3. Is there a program that will read/show the DVD volume identifiers AFTER I've burned the info on the DVD?
  4. LIGHTNING UK! - Now everything makes sense to me. Thanks for taking the time to explain everything to me. That's the info I was looking for to help me make the right choice. -D j K i l l a-
  5. What exactly makes the third one the best? What should I look for using the pic as an example? -D j K i l l a-
  6. I just want to be sure I chose the correct layer break. The one that's high-lighted/greyed is the one I picked.
  7. (Version I did two more burns again and here's the results. The first burn was 12X again using Taiyo Yuden 16X DVD-R media in Build mode and as usual the Device Buffer went crazy, bouncing everywhere. I never got the burn time I should have. The second burn I did was at 8X using the same media in Build mode and for this first time, the Device Buffer was normal and didn't bounce everywhere. I did notice that Imgburn still continues to use a large amount of CPU time even while burning at 8X. Here's the pic of the Task Manager while burning at 8X:
  8. (Version Just burned another IMG file in Write mode on Taiyo Yuden 16x DVD-R media at 12X. Excellent results! Looks like the second graph in my last post. Imgburn is still using a lot of CPU time. Here's the pic of the Task Manager:
  9. (Version I switched to DVD-R and made the following burns with better results. I'm beginning to think it's more of a media problem and possably firmware. Burned using Build mode at 12x: Burned IMG using Write mode at 12x: **I'm going to burn a couple more IMG files and post Task Manager pics to see how much CPU time Imgburn is taking.
  10. Imgburn wasn't giving me any problems but on this last install, I was getting the same problems. In a few hours I'll be burning some ISO files and using Taiyo Yuden 16x DVD-R media. I'll also burn at 8X and 12X to see if there's a difference.
  11. I haven't burned an ISO/IMG file for a while. Basicly I extract the ISO/IMG file to a VIDEO_TS folder then run FixVTS to make sure the file structure is accurate. I then start Imgburn and in Build mode I select the VIDEO_TS folder with the movie files and burn it. I just installed version again and I'm getting the same results, Buffer at 100% and Device Buffer bouncing around. I also checked the Processes tab in Task Manager and Imgburn was still taking a lot of CPU time. Nothing else was taking any CPU time. Here's the latest burn using version I 00:21:07 ImgBurn Version started!

  12. I uninstalled the IDE controller according to the FAQ, re-loaded the latest drivers for the chipset and burned another DVD+R. By the way, I do have a 1Ghz processor but I'm well within the requirements for the Pioneer 112D and I'm able to burn successfully with Nero and Imgburn and receive a time around 6:09. There must be something in the code/programming that's giving me (possably others) performance issues with Imgburn. Also, my Pioneer 112D is capable of burning 18x with the current computer I have according to the requirements. Here's the graph you requested:
  13. Here's the latest info you requested.
  14. Both hard drives are set to Ultra DMA Mode 5. All chipset drivers have already been updated to the latest. The only thing I haven't installed is the following: Performance Software - Intel? Application Accelerator [iAA23_ENU.EXE, IAA23_MULTI.EXE] (1973KB) 2.3 11/13/2002 The Intel? Application Accelerator enables faster delivery of data from the hard drive to the processor and other system level hardware.
  15. Do I need to have Task Manager open when burning? What tab do I need to check and what do I look for?
