ISF God (5/5)

  1. Just got the official word from LG. They have discontinued WH16NS60 production. They informed me that this current replacement they are making for my NS60 will be the last. The NS60 has been discontinued and after they go through the current refurbished stock they have, there will be no more. The NS40 is still available. Amazon.com has 5 left in stock with more on the way, so the NS40 is still in production, it seems. Which is a bit of a shame as the reason I stuck with the NS60 was because it properly wrote to BD DL media, unlike the NS40. However, maybe after all these years, firmware updates have fixed this in the NS40.
  2. First, make sure the device is recognized by Windows. Open File/Windows Explorer and make sure the drive is listed. Second, just to cover all the bases, you are trying to create an image file of an optical disc and not a USB thumb flash drive or HDD/SSD, right? Lastly, try changing the I/O Interface in ImgBurn and see if any of the alternates find your device. To change the I/O Interface, under Tools --> Settings --> I/O --> Page 1 --> Interface, there's a series of check boxes you can use to change the I/O Interface. Try changing to each one until you find one that works. Though it's not listed as recommended, I do recommend closing and restarting ImgBurn each time you change the I/O setting, just to be sure.
  3. I bought the inkjet printable ones. I've used discs similar to these on the NS40 in the past. MKM 003's. They worked fine back then, but it's been years since I used the NS40.
  4. I had a chance to burn one of those "cheaper" Verbatim DVD+R DL's I got last week. I burned about 5.9 GB to one and it passed both Write and Verify. Right now, I'm performing a Read test and then processing the ISO to "verify" its contents. And the ISO read completed and processed fine. So, these "cheaper" Verbatim DVD+R DL discs do appear to be the good stuff, just cheaper.
  5. At what point does ImgBurn say you need to reinstall Madflac? I am on Windows 11 23H2 and just loaded a .FLAC without incident. However, I did not attempt to burn the CUE file. If you're getting an error attempting to do the actual conversion, as I said, I didn't encounter that because I didn't attempt to write the CUE file.
  6. The problem with the NS40 was, for a long time, and it may have finally been fixed with a firmware update since I last checked, it did not write properly to DL BD discs. It wasn't just my findings, either. Others on this board and I discovered 9 times out 10, DL BD media would fail Verify. There's never any rhyme or reason why an LG optical drive, and it's more than just NS40's and 60's, will fail to read a particular disc. And it's not just DVD-R but pressed Blu-Ray and DVD Video discs as well.
  7. Last I checked, .img was a file type for images of floppy disks made by WinImage. Are you talking floppy disks or install discs like CD's for this software? If it's floppy disks, ImgBurn won't image those. You'd need something like the aforementioned WinImage.
  8. My order arrived and near as I can tell, even though they're like 4 times less in price, the MID does say they're MKM-003's. So, they appear to be the good stuff. Although I don't have anything in need of burning right now to a DVD+R DL, so I can't test to make sure they work okay. If I can remember, I'll be sure to use one of these new ones first on my next need to burn DVD Video to a DVD+R DL.
  9. The NS60 has had a few read hiccups over the years. Maybe 5% of what I've fed it won't fully read, but another drive, like my Verbatim Pioneer USB drive, will read. It's a shame you can't find NS60's anymore. Just the NS40.
  10. The CMC Pro discs are TY discs. At least, the MID's say they are. You can always fake an MID, though. I tried out some of them and they all burned and played back on a PS3 without issues. Sony used to make a quality DVD-R when they made it themselves. Now, they farm out to Ritek, which is okay 2nd tier media in North America; in Europe, Ritek appears to be junk. There's a section of the Forums dedicated to media reviews: https://forum.imgburn.com/forum/15-media/ The most recent posts, in fact, appear to be from me. I underwent a task to check all of my recorded discs since some were burned before I knew what CMC was. So, I took the opportunity to replace any MCC DVD-R I had recorded with MCC Verbatim DataLife Plus inkjet printable DVD-R. While I was at it, I decided to post a list of discs that were still readable 15-20 years after they were burned.
  11. Yeah, I came across both Amazon entries, as well. I can't explain it, either; it's really weird. If you do a general search for those terms, the first hit is for the $67, but if you scroll down through the list of hits, you find the $25 one. My order is supposed to arrive today.
  12. The order I just placed a few hours ago has already shipped. Amazon appears to be going on a selling spree. I already got something else I was monitoring because it dropped half in price and something else I also ordered went from $42 to $24, with the Prime shipping.
  13. It's weird. My first search for the inkjet discs turned up only an entry with 3rd party sellers. However, scrolling down through the list of hits, I did find another entry that was Amazon shipped. I have ordered those branded AZO discs before. They are Mitsubishi MKM.
  14. Amazon.com still offers them for shipping themselves: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005F2YPH2/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&th=1 If you're looking for inkjet printable labeled ones: https://www.amazon.com/Verbatim-98319-Datalifeplus/dp/B07GPTV77F/ref=sr_1_14?crid=3US12YPGDHO5O&keywords=verbatim+dvd%2Br+dl+inkjet&qid=1700321675&s=electronics&sprefix=verbatim+dvd%2Br+dl+inkjet%2Celectronics%2C242&sr=1-14 Although, I can't explain the super low price of the inkjet ones. They're nearly half off the Deal price of the branded ones. At that price, I'm tempted to get some for myself, even though I currently don't need any, and keep them in storage. IF they're the MKM ones. I have a feeling Verbatim might discontinue them or Amazon is trying to get rid of unsold stock. The good news is if they're NOT the MKM ones, Amazon.com has a very good return policy.
  15. Yes, convert the MP4 to DVD Video disc. There are some freeware tools, but I've never used them, so I can't recommend any. From what I've seen of them, they're not really very good. I use ConvertXToDVD, but that's a paid license piece of software.
