  1. I understand the needs and wants of generating revenue but this is not a good solution. I've been very grateful and happily using Imgburn for many, many years but no longer will I use it or recommend it. There are a few good alternatives that do not use the OpenCandy garbage. Sad to see it go, but regardless of how well opting out works, I will not download anything that contains OpenCandy onto my workstation and I'm not alone. Imgburn is now rated as adware on videohelp.com (http://forum.videohelp.com/threads/356775-What-s-Happened-To-Imgburn?p=2252576&viewfull=1#post2252576). If you must use the OpenCandy crap, you should offer a downloadable executable that does not contain OpenCandy. I'll bet you loose quite a few users and piss off some longtime users who don't pay attention when they update and unwittingly install the OpenCandy crapware.
  2. Thanks for peeing on me! I guess I will start transfering. I have never had an issue with TY's, but since I'm going to back most everything up, is there any other brand that is superior?
  3. The discs are visible within explorer sometimes. I do not get any errors. The drive just keeps trying to read the discs. Sometimes the movie will play and then freeze, play for a couple seconds, freeze, play... Here is a log file: I 10:22:55 ImgBurn Version started!

I've tried Media Player 9, WinDVD 4, PowerDVD 6. None of them will play the discs properly. PowerDVD 6 seems to work the best. While replying to your message I decided to ?waste? some DVD?s. I have come to the conclusion it must be a media related problem. I burned the same iso file on 2- Memorex DVD?s and on 2-Taiyo Yuden DVD?s. The TY DVD?s play fine in everything. The Memorex DVD?s play fine in everything but the laptop. I had previously ruled out the media because I have several Memorex DVD?s that do play fine in the laptop and some of the discs are from the same batch. I am still confused because all of the Memorex DVD?s I currently have (100-200) play fine in every player I have tried them in and some of them play fine in the laptop. Do you have an explanation? I know most people will tell you to stay away from Memorex media, but I have gone through 5-100 piece packs and have not had one coaster! With that said, I will not buy anymore because I now know there is a problem with the media. I just wish I would have found this out before burning so many movies onto Memorex DVD?s. Bummer. Most of my movie collection was burned onto that media.
  4. All discs burned using: DVD Decrypter-->DVD Shrink-->ImgBurn will not play in my laptop. However, they play fine on my PC and stand alone players. I can use DVD Decrypter-->DVD Shrink-->nero and my notebook can play them fine using the same exact media (DVD-R). For some reason the Samsung CDRW/DVD does not like how ImgBurn burns the discs or how the image is created using Shrink. I have the latest firmware Has anyone experienced this type of problem? Is there a work around or test?
