  1. It burned and verified fine, check your source. Imgburn clearly saw that it is a bluray video disc. Does it play as a bluray video disc on your PC with WinDVD or whatever software player out there plays bluray video on windows? Other than that all I can point out is: From your first log, you can only use speeds available. Burning at slowest speed anyways really doesn't necessarily mean you produce the best burn. From your second log, whatever you appear do be doing while burning maybe you shouldn't. Try NOT to multi task too much while burning. If you aren't and are having this issue continually then consider updating the drivers on your controllers.
  2. Probably it is true. I don't have the link on me offhand, but I remember reading an article about BD-R discs, and having even really shorter lifespans that CD/DVD-Rs, though according to that particular article it was estimated to be only 10 years. I guess it just seems that companies now are really skimping on good quality dyes, though it is a bit surprising that it is already done so quickly with bluray discs. I know that for a fact when CD-Rs first hit the consumer market, they were essentially quality discs. I have a CD-R disc from back in the days of 2x CD burners (burners ONLY, not even the rewritable drives were out just yes), and it still reads. Be that as it may, even back in those days they estimated that recorded optical discs would last almost centuries, beyond the 'lifespan' of a pressed disc. That is really not the case, and I would somehow venture to bet that a pressed disc will outlast even the most quality of dyes used. One thing I noticed in your log: If you wrote your backups on rewritable discs, thats perhaps the worst thing you can do. With WORMs (Write Once Read Many Times discs), like I said the lifespan may not exactly be what is advertised, but with at least decent quality dyes, and proper storage and handling you can at least get a decent life out of your discs. Don't ever backup longterm with rewritables.
  3. It sounds like SPTI permission issue. When you installed imgburn did you make sure to install SPTI for ALL users? You can run the install process again by the way without the need to uninstall first. Make sure you have SPTI for all users.
  4. This one is hard to answer. I have seen TDK BD-Rs that have TDK as the ID, but then I am starting to see Ritek creep up again. Normally yes I would say Verbatim still, but obviously the disc ID is not MKM (Mitsubishi Kagaku Media), it is actually VERBAT-imd-xxx, (VERBAT-IMd-000) or something to that line. I think I have actually seen TDK branded media in someone's log that actually had the ID TDK, but I wouldn't go for TDK since they stopped making their own media and outsourced it to third parties (Ritek). I would probably stick with Verbatim but I hope someone with more experience with bluray burning can confirm this, maybe LUK perhaps can confirm this.
  5. So I decided to burn a data DL-DVD, bunch of rar/7z files up to 8.3GiB total. Everything went fine, burned and verified successfully. Still there is one thing that I am wondering about: ; //****************************************\\ ; ImgBurn Version - Log ; Wednesday, 23 March 2011, 19:35:23 ; \\****************************************// ; ; I 18:53:40 ImgBurn Version started!

I 19:35:23 Shutting down ASPI... I 19:35:23 ImgBurn closed! Since this is not a DVD-Video disc, how does ECC boundary work? When the data was allocated to each layer, was the data truncated (split)? I often wonder about this, since I am always unsure of making a DATA DVD that is filled with media (MP3/FLAC) which file would be 'split' and have a potential pause when going from L0 to L1.
  6. Sounds like false advertising to me. They should have gone with scratch resistant (keyword right there). Bluray discs have the new 'hardcoating' layer on them, because supposedly also the disc is so much closer (micrometers??) closer to the laser apparatus that there is a possible chance of surface contact? Not sure if can be verified though. This is also why bluray achieves a higher density (besides the even closer together pits). In some cases now I wish HD-DVD won over bluray, only for a more stable format perhaps. In any case, I don't buy their claim if it is scratch-proof.
  7. 214.4x is...strange. Anyhow first you should consider updating imgburn to 2.5.5, and if you haven't updated your burner's firmware you should: http://www.firmwarehq.com/download_1446-file_PX-850SA_1.06WIN.zip.html, assuming you are already running this firmware already. You warning is a little strange only the fact that it is saying 214.4x, clearly that is not accurate but still you should try writing at faster than minimum speeds supported by the media (or also get better CD-Rs rather than whatever you are using. Tayo Yuden comes to mind). Although media such as CD-Rs/DVD+-Rs claim to support slower speeds, often times the hardware simply cannot burn at such lower speeds anyways. For CD-Rs 16x-24x should be fine. Try again after updating both imgburn and(?) your burner's firmware, with the speeds to either 16x or 24x. -edit Unless also your DVD burner is for some reason representing DVD equivalent burning speeds to your CD-Rs (214.4x), thats my only guess, but why? I'm just hung up on 214.4x
  8. It might be a DTS audio track. You need a DTS decoder in order to playback the sound. Have you tried changing the audio track? Concert DVDs usually have more than 1 audio track, 5.1 surround, 5.1 DTS, and sometimes 2 channel AC-3 or PCM. As I said for the DTS track you need a digital decoder in order to play it back, but you can play back 5.1 surround and PCM normally without any extra equipment so check to see if there are any other audio tracks available. Also though this in of itself has nothing to do with imgburn.
  9. There is a firmware update for your burner (PIONEER DVD-RW DVR-116D 1.06) http://www.firmwarehq.com/download_109-file_DVR-116D_FW109EU2.EXE.html After that try again, and also try a faster speed.
  10. Sorry can you type English please? All I got was ISO and Playstation2. If thats the case, imgburn will NOT help you because it will not make ISOs from any copyprotected discs.
  11. Yea you will have to check AnyDVD for that. There should be an option to make the film fit on a single layer. I know DVDFab will compress your movie if you want it on a SL DVD or even SL Bluray. As far as copying 'portions', you will need a reauthoring program for that as well. Imgburn will do nothing but burn your data 'as is.'
  12. Well it looks to be just that one disc that could be bad. Try again with another disc at a higher speed. Also: I don't know how 'good' these type of discs are, but maybe you should consider getting some discs by Tayo Yuden instead.
  13. Burning at slowers speeds to achieve the best burn possible is a myth. Usually its best to burn at 4x or 6x if your burner supports such speeds for DL media.
  14. One other thing you can try, you seem to have two dvd burners, so try the other and see if you have any success, good luck.
  15. Correct, if you want to play whatever you have on a stand alone dvd player the files needs to be converted to a DVD-VIDEO disc format (VIDEO_TS directory with VOB,BUP,IFO files). Check out DVDFlick it is free. Note, that SOME stand alone players can play .avi files on a disc, this is known as a divx disc, but not all and that mp4 file is just plain useless to your player anyways. Check the documentation on your player to see if it does support playing divx (.avi) discs, either way DVDFlick is your best option. Once you have converted your two files to the proper DVD-Video format, you may then use imgburn to burn it to disc, see this guide. Good luck.
  16. Well aside from the joliet file warnings (don't worry about those, imgburn should realize you want to create a divx disc and adjust settings accordingly), here is the real problem: I do not think your burner likes the CMC-MAG discs. Try updating your firmware, but I am not sure which since I am getting too many hits from firmwarehq about your particular drive, but try this, go into any mode, then go to tools -> drive -> check for firmware updates and see what comes up. Also try a better recordable DVD, preferably DVD+R from Verbatim which has the disc ID: MCC, CMC-MAG is crap.
  17. Well according to the log imgburn did copy both sessions, and created a .bin file for it so you should also have a .cue file as well. Use a virtual drive program like deamon-tools and have it emulate the image, and see what comes up. Thats all I can think of right now.
  18. Increasing the buffer size does not necessarily guarantee you won't get buffer underruns if you do decide to do other activities that can potentially drain the buffer away from imgburn. If you really want more than 512MB, perhaps try making a request in the suggestions forum. I very much doubt also you are really burning at 2.4x all the time. Have you checked your logs? I am willing to bet you will get write-speed miscompare warnings and you might actually be burning at faster rates since some discs/drives do not support going at slower speeds.
  19. Do you really need it that high? If you are having buffering issues a few things you can try (besides going overboard on the buffer size itself). Try not to do too many things that are taxing to your hd, which can affect the buffer. Update your controller drivers, and if you haven't run defrag in a while you might want to. If though you aren't having such issues, then just go with 512MB, but even that is going overboard. This is only if you are getting buffer underruns, is when you might consider increasing the size. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
  20. You cannot burn at slowest speed, and no reason for you to anyways. Try at higher speeds instead. Also most importantly there is a firmware update for your burner: http://www.firmwarehq.com/download_586-file_SDVD8820_AD20_Philips.zip.html Update your firmware and try at the PROPER speeds, 6x or 8x.
  21. I am curious by any chance was this a BD-R LTH (Low-To-High) media? As far as I know bluray players should just be able to read BD-R BD-R DL without issues, only LTH would give you such issues and would require a firmware update.
  22. If I am not mistaken .IMA is a bootdisk image (raw dump from floppy), and it is supported all you have to to is go to build mode, then click on the advanced tab and the tab below that labeled bootable disc. If you mean an actual optical disc image (CD/DVD/BD), then the reason for that is imgburn doesn't really try to support obscure formats, only the most commonly used ones. You could download daemon-tools or any other program that will emulate a virtual drive, and mount your .IMA file as a drive and have imgburn make a proper .ISO out of it (if of course you are talking about a disc image from a CD/DVD/BD).
