  1. A simple way of achieving what you want, if you don't need a menu, would be to try DVD Shrink in Re-author mode. Just drag the titles you want into the DVD compilation window and it will create a new VIDEO_TS folder with a valid DVD structure that you can then burn with ImgBurn. Have a look here for a basic step-by-step guide.
  2. You'd burn it as you would any other data file, from the Ez-Mode Picker screen choose Write files/folders to disc (aka Build mode). As you probably know, since you have a LUKS file, it's an encrypted file system (similar to the type created by PGP Disk, TrueCrypt etc) and is mounted as a virtual disk after supplying the correct password, not to be confused with a disc image format like ISO, NRG etc.
  3. I have to admit I'm unsure from your question (and perhaps others are too) what it is you want to achieve? To burn files to a DVD you use build mode (Write files/folders to disc) but I get the feeling you don't simply want to back-up your flac files, 24 bit or otherwise... or is it that simple?
  4. No, nothing to worry about, it's purely informational. The important part is this:
  5. Why would you even want to? Anyway the supported write speeds are determined by the drives firmware, if you want to write at a speed that's not supported for the media you're using you'd have to create your own firmware for the drive.
  6. Have you read this pinned post at the top of the support forum? http://forum.imgburn.com/index.php?showtopic=12200 I think you're mistaken. Here's what is says in the log you posted... I 16:58:42 Book Type Setting: DVD-ROM It depends on a combination of your drive/firmware and the media used. Slower isn't necessarily better and that's apparently what your drive manufacturer thinks too, these are your options for those Verbatim DL blanks... I 16:54:25 Destination Media Type: DVD+R DL (Disc ID: MKM-003-00) (Speeds: 4x; 6x; 8x) .
  7. Do you have a multi system DVD player? Your standalone may also be rejecting the disc if it only supports the NTSC format (North American system) in which case you'd also need to convert from PAL to NTSC when converting the original file.
  8. Hi Karen, ImgBurn is freeware and if you paid someone for it then you were ripped off and should definitely ask for your money back. Please read this recent post, I hope it helps... http://forum.imgburn.com/index.php?showtopic=13291
  9. Are you still looking for suggestions? Some people prefer dBpoweramp over EAC (but I'm not one of them). According to their website it's compatible with Windows 7 and 64 bit versions. The 'free' version is severely crippled but there's a trial version which should give you an idea if you need the additional features and want to pay for them. Another alternative for you might be foobar2000, it's a freeware audio player with native support for many audio formats and has a cd ripping component built in. It can rip selected tracks to wav or convert them to a compressed format of your choice to save space like mp3 (lossy) or flac (lossless) etc by copying the relevant encoder to the the main foobar2000 directory (e.g. lame.exe or flac.exe). The website says it supports Windows 7.
  10. What you describe sounds like a ZCLV (zoned constant linear velocity) write strategy which is not something to be concerned about. Modern high speed burners use different write strategies that vary depending on the model, firmware, media and selected write speed and often don't reach their maximum speed until approaching the end of the disc (especially if 16-20x was selected). Since the burning software can't control the write strategy, ashampoo may simply not be reporting the actual speed during the burn. The only difference I can see on the disc surface though is a distinction between the burnt inner portion and the unused outer portion. .
  11. I stand corrected... but not a bad substitute.
  12. Well, with respect to Verbatim CD-R's and single layer DVD's, if it has AZO on the packaging then you'll be getting MCC media code, if it doesn't have AZO on the packaging then it's one of the others... Or you could buy from a reputable online retailer that lists the MID.
  13. I've used EAC for years but only on XP and not with x64 anything, sorry... having said that, this page may help with any incompatibilities you may face (if I understand correctly it may be best on Win 7 to install it somewhere other than the usual Program Files directory). Yes it converts as well, the configuration wizard gives you the option of setting up for MP3 if you wish. You might want to take a look through this guide to the various EAC options for a better understanding of the program, including compression options if you'd prefer a different format. http://wiki.hydrogenaudio.org/index.php?title=EAC_configuration Edit: You should be able to download it safely from RareWares if you're still having problems. .
  14. Ummm... you've got it all backwards, despite being given the answer twice already. Your question is specifically about double layer blanks and all Verbatim double layer DVD's are manufactured by MKM (Mitsubishi Kagaku Media), hence the MKM media ID... nothing to do with Ritek at all. . Edit: ooops, too slow...
  15. Sorry if I caused any confusion... UDF is the file system used on the DVD, and there are several versions of it to choose from (revisions), but since no-one else has commented on it then it's probably not a factor in your case. Let us know how it goes if you do try ImgBurn to create the ISO, as you said above (I guess you saw the guide for it already).
  16. I don't know if this has anything to do with your problem but the official Win 7 (RC) ISO I've seen and an upgrade DVD both use UDF revision 1.02 (I'm referring to 32 bit only, haven't seen a 64 bit one to compare if it's the same). .
  17. I think Cynthia is referring to a disc quality scan (PIE/PIF) which is not the same thing as Graph data. http://forum.imgburn.com/index.php?showtopic=2168
  18. If you want to check for yourself, pop the disc back in your drive and start ImgBurn in 'Read' mode (Create image file from disc). Now have a look at the info panel on the right hand side, it should look something like this: Optiarc DVD RW AD-7200A 1.09 (ATA) Current Profile: CD-R Disc Information: Status: Complete Erasable: No Sessions: 1 If the Status says Complete it means the disc is finalized and no further sessions can be burnt on the disc. Also if you're concerned about there being "anything wrong with it" you should always have Verify enabled when burning.
  19. As well as the above, you also need a DVD+R DL disc to be able to set the layer break in ImgBurn, not a DVD-R DL disc which is technically quite different. (I'm unsure from your post if you meant +R DL and inadvertently typed -R DL, or you actually had the misfortune to buy a -R DL disc)
  20. What is telling you that the file system is RAW? Explorer? What does ImgBurn report the file system to be when in 'Read' mode? (Create image file from disc) Have you tried reading the disc in ALL of the drives connected to your system or only the one?
  21. At least if there is a next time you should be better prepared.
  22. If you suspect the source file is the problem it's probably a good idea to confirm it for yourself, or rule it out, rather than continuing to speculate (Garbage In, Garbage Out). There are a number of ways you could do that... 7-Zip can extract the contents of the ISO, alternatively VLC can open ISO files and play them directly or you could use something like Virtual Clone Drive to mount the ISO as a virtual drive allowing you to use the player of your choice. As far as verifying the disc burnt on your friends PC with the image on your PC, I notice one is running AnyDVD and the other DVD43. If either of those softwares made changes to the DVD while copying (and not necessarily the same changes?) it would make the verify meaningless as the two images would be different.
  23. You only need the VIDEO_TS folder, it contains all the files required for the DVD (.ifo, .bup, .vob). The AUDIO_TS folder is always an empty folder, ImgBurn will create one for you if necessary so you don't need to include it (Tools > Settings > Build > DVD Video > Create AUDIO_TS Folder).
  24. According to the log you posted you're burning a Data DVD. If it burns and verifies okay then most likely your DVD players don't support avi files. If you want compatibility with all DVD players then convert your files to DVD Video format, others here have suggested using a program like DVD Flick for that task. As far as WMP goes, it sounds like you don't have the necessary video codec installed and so it's only playing the audio stream. Perhaps install the DivX codec or try another player like VLC or MPC-HC. EDIT: If you know for sure that your DVD players do support DivX/avi files then read the manual as it should describe the requirements for playback. Generally the ISO9660+Joliet file system (Options tab in ImgBurn) is more compatible than ISO9660+UDF which you used... also, for what it's worth, my parents Panasonic won't play avi's from +R/+RW media at all only CD-R/RW, DVD-R/-RW or a USB stick, perhaps your players have certain limitations on media but it should be in the manual somewhere.
  25. That's the thing, you generally can't tell by looking at the packaging what dye you're getting, also most "brands" get the disc's from several manufacturers (CMC, Ritek, Ricoh, etc) and depending on the batch and where you buy them from it could be any one of them. The one exception is Verbatim, all their double layer discs are manufactured by their parent company and will be the MKM dye. You might want to instead check out an online retailer that specialize in blank DVD's like SVP.co.uk since they list the dye used and is probably the only way to know what you're getting in advance, that is if you really want to buy one of those other brands, although I just noticed that on some products even they can't be sure and have listed several possibilities... or just get some Verbs and give them a go.
