  1. If you made an ISO of an mp4 file, and burned that expecting it to play in your dvd player then you wasted a few discs already. Imgburn will not turn your .mp4 file into a DVD-Video disc containing the proper files/directories (VIDEO_TS dir. with IFO,BUP,VOB files). You need to convert your .mp4 file to the proper DVD-Video format with DVDFlick. Once you have finished that and have your VIDEO_TS dir with the appropriate files, imgburn will burn that as a DVD-Video disc. How fast or how slow you burn the disc is irrelevant. Just remember to verify your burn.
  2. Thats a small ISO... I 20:24:43 Source File Size: 14,196,736 bytes ~13MB in size. I also assume you still have a VIDEO_TS in the root directory of the disc. My only other guess is there is something wrong with your source files.
  3. Well if you did a test burn then how does your disc even play on your computer? Technically your disc would be blank still. -edit Also these logs are empty, no activity at all.
  4. Well I still want to see the log, to be sure imgburn burned it as a DVD-Video disc, if the log confirms this, it is possible there is a problem with your source files. Again post the log please
  5. DVD-R DL Media There is your problem right there. You cannot arbitrarily set layerbreaks with -R DL media, only +R DL. Sorry but your discs are useless for use as 360 backups. You need +R DL (go for Verbatim).
  6. Sorry for the confusion, by DVD-Video compliant I mean a disc that has a VIDEO_TS folder with IFO,BUP,VOB files (AUDIO_TS is OPTIONAL). -+R discs these days are a none issues (except for Double Layered -R or +R discs, but thats not really important right now). Your blank disc CAN be made into DVD-Video discs, or data discs it doesn't matter. Just like a CD-R can be either a data CD or standard CD-Audio disc you play in a stereo. I don't know about scripts, but if whatever 'slideshow' utility you are using spits out an ISO, you can use imgburn to burn the ISO after. That is just a 'filler' for old players (first maybe second generation) that for some reason could not play DVDs without BOTH AUDIO_TS and VIDEO_TS. Like I said these days AUDIO_TS is inconsequential and you can ignore it 99.999% of the time. You can use Imgburn to burn the ISO to disc by clicking on the write image file to disc button.
  7. A DVD-Video compliant disc is playable both on a computer with DVD playback software as well as stand alone players (provided your stand alone players can handle +-R discs). Anyways, open the contents of your disc in explorer and list the directories you have on the disc. You should only have VIDEO_TS in the main directory and nowhere else. AUDIO_TS is optional and recent players couldn't care if you have or haven't an AUDIO_TS folder.
  8. This isn't an imgburn specific issue, but check your dvdshrink settings you may have inadvertently changed where it should save your files to? Also goes for copying, you just have to check back with DVDShrink. Only thing we can really help you with is mostly burning issues.
  9. It will at least give us an idea if imgburn burned your disc as merely a data disc, or dvd-video disc. As of right now there isn't enough information. Also are you playing the disc in a DVD software player? Either PowerDVD or WinDVD (VLC doesn't really count, as it will play anything in any format).
  10. Imgburn won't help you. You need demuxing utilities to extract audio from VOB files. Also since it is a 'commercial' DVD, you might run into problems since chances are it is copyprotected. I'm afraid you are just going to have to google your issue, since this isn't something we can really help you with.
  11. After your files are ready see this guide on how to burn your VIDEO_TS folder with Imgburn.
  12. Imgburn burns files 'as is' and will not produce a DVD-Video disc unless you already have the source prepared in advance. You have to encode your videos into the proper DVD-Video format (VIDEO_TS directory with VOB,BUP,IFO files). Imgburn won't do that. DVDFlick will, it is free. Once you have converted your videos to the DVD-Video format, THEN you may use imgburn to burn your contents as a DVD-Video disc.
  13. Like it mattered to most anyways. It would not be feasible to enforce an anti-ripping law anyways. Ripping for personal use legal or not either way it is a law that not even 0.000001% would ever be prosecuted for.
  14. It is a combo of drive+firmware version+media. 1x is never an option for DVDs, and in fact even on CDs these days 1x just isn't available. DVDs usually start at a minimum write speed of 2.4x, but depending on the drive/discs usually the slowest would probably be 4x. I don't really know why some people still insist on such slow speeds anyhow, perhaps we really should make a sticky that includes recommended writing speeds, and also a notice saying that slowest speeds does not produce the best burns. For single layered DVD+-Rs, 8x is usually fine but I don't see why 16x can't be used if you are using decent media such as Verbatim DVD+R (MCC DYE), up to date firmware on your burner, as well as most recent version of imgburn and running the latest XP or Win7 service packs. Just remember to verify your burns. I see no reason why you can't burn successfully at 16x though.
  15. From your log: Any reason why you are not running SP1? http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows/downloads/service-packs There is a firmware update available, http://www.firmwarehq.com/download_1532-file_GH22NS30_200%28ew%29.zip.html 1x is never an option for DVDs, and in your case only 4x is the slowest option. For single layers, minimum of 8x is usually better. Slowest burn speed != better burns. Also, consider getting better quality discs. I am not familiar with the MBIPG101-R05-01 DYE, consider going for the Verbatim DVD+R discs that have the MCC dye. You seem to be having DMA issues. Try not to do other things while burning, as this can cause more buffer underruns. Also consider updating your chipset drivers if you have not already. After updating your firmware, Windows to the NEXT service pack, as well as finding possible updates to your chipset/controllers, try burning your disc again. Good luck.
  16. Sounds a bit combative response no? I venture to guess that even LUK would agree about why +R DL would be preferred over -R DL, after all he wrote the program and I venture to guess has more experience in dealing with optical media. +R and -R DL is not the same, neither are +R and -R single layers. Just because you can playback both standards, doesn't mean that there are not subtle differences in how each is burned. The "it plays fine" argument is ignoring the underlying differences. Also I don't find anything confusing about HD DVD and Bluray, those are two different formats, albeit that use the same blue laser beam, however in different wavelengths. Also if you claimed to have read up on these formats, you would know that DVD + and - came about because there was a split in agreeing on a standard, not necessarily on purpose to 'confuse the consumer'. Also, there is no such + or - format in HD-DVD or bluray. Really? I would guarantee that any other program that you burn a -R DL and have it set an arbitrary layer break position will give you some kind of hint that it is not possible. Imgburn is designed to tell the user what is happening 'verbatim' compared to other programs that choose to hide most of the details. But, since you perhaps fancy yourself an expert, please do elaborate how is the 'error' a 'bogus' one?
  17. Perhaps, Imgburn only likes audio CD images in the CUE+BIN format, cue being a text file with all the track info and of course the bin (data). I know that Imgburn CAN burn .NRG image files as well as other ISO files, but I guess that is just for pure data and not CD audio. Use Daemon Tools to mount your .NRG image and have Imgburn make a .CUE and .BIN file from your virtually mounted 'disc'. After wards try burning your audio CD again.
  18. You selected 1x which clearly is not supported, not even 2.4x so it defaulted to 4x. Try either 6x or 8x next. Your firmware seems up to date, so that covers any potential updates. The problem with DL discs, is that the chances for an error are greater due to burner/media combo. Ritek DLs aren't that great, but there are even worse discs besides those (CMC-MAG). If you cannot find Verbatim +R DLs from within your country, consider going online, since burning any other DL discs is just not worth it. I don't think you would need to replace your burner just yet, unless it is a slimline (notebook) burner. Again, see if you can order Verbatim +R DL discs online and see if that works if not, then it might be time for a new burner.
  19. Any reason why you are using incremental? That could be the cause. Go to tools -> settings, write tab, and on page one select DAO/SAO instead of incremental. Afterwards try again.
  20. Try at a faster speed see if that helps. Chances are it is the media though that is causing the issue. You may not yet have to chunk the drive just because it is 'old'. Try better media instead of discs that have the Disc ID: CMC MAG. AM3. Look for Verbatim +R discs that have the MCC dye, or Tayo Yuden discs.
  21. Well if PowerDVD doesn't like your disc either, then go back and try re-encoding your source files. Unfortunately as far as that is concerned though, you will have to find a forum specifically for help with that, as we cannot help you with encoding, only burning, sorry.
  22. Well according to imgburn it burned it as a bluray video disc, but I did notice something else back up from your log... This MIGHT be an issue. Consider doing a FULL erase (WITHOUT spare areas), and try burning your disc again. Also try your disc on a software blu ray player on your computer. Either WinDVD or whatever is used to play bluray video discs on Windows. Only other thing is consider updating your firmware: http://www.firmwarehq.com/download_1757-file_BH10LS30_1.00-09.exe.html

  24. Update imgburn to 2.5.5 Also see: http://forum.imgburn.com/index.php?showtopic=8000 -edit There is a firmware update for your burner available. http://www.firmwarehq.com/download_1717-file_GH22NS50_TN03(ew).zip.html
