  1. Hi I have a HD MKV file which I want to burn onto BD disc for playing in a bluray player. Does the feature to create image file automatically do all the required conversions and create all the required folders (CERTIFICATE etc) or do I need to manually create additional folders before I use the Create Image file feature. Thanks
  2. seems like the black pearl has docked in town lately
  3. I'm with you on this one. I think IMGBURN should expand to re-authoring as well
  4. The functionality is all there and it communicates the button messages very clearly, its just the feel, perhaps if the layout was a bit different
  5. Naaw I have a distinct dislike for nero. Looks like a patch job that had layers added over the years to the point where its a giant bucket of mess. Every few years a patched up product needs to be scrapped and rebuilt from the ground up and nero has long past that point. They obviously tried to make it look better by adding layers of pretty gui but I bet if you look under the bonnet you will find a hodgepot of goo barely hanging together. Now IMGBURN on the other hand is another story, lean and clean like its supposed to be, and dedicated to the objective of a successful burn. The EZ-picker layer needs some work tho. Not really to my liking. But I'm sure in the next release we will see some magic
  6. Disc-to-disc copy would be great tho, Currently we have to copy the image to HD then burn that image to a blank disc, Would be great if it can be done in one step without the intermediate copy to HD. I can use nero of course but their coding performance is seriously lacking. Takes a million years to do the copy which I would guess to be a simple bit-for-bit copy. Nero has lotsa great features but such a dog to use. Would be great if IMGBURN could incorporate a disc-to-disc copy.
  7. Nope nothings wrong, its the only burner i use. just curious about wot the boss is gona surprise us with in the next release, Perhaps a nero replacement with the ability to shrink and disc-to-disc copy and all that nice stuff. Everything above board of course, just like nero is
  8. Hi LUK, its been a while, when can we expect the next release of IMGBURN
  9. Thanks blutach. Actually, I think the whole DVD market is backward with its Regions and PAL vs. NTSC. There are a ton on films I wopuld love to buy and watch that are in PAL format and it just makes it a little tougher, but I digress... I'm having a hard time finding 'Procoder 2'. Does anyone have a link? I believe the whole world out there except USA have DVD players that play multiple framerates. Its only USA it seems that have DVD players that can only play NTSC.
  10. Can try using Nero to make and image from files and encode to the format you like. This of course assumes they are not encrypted discs. If they are copy protected then you in the wrong forum and cannot be assisted here
  11. Hi LUK You made a comment in one of the threads (can't find which one it is) that you only recommend the plex 716 and 760 and not the 755 as these are the only 'real' plextors. The others inbetween you suspected were were made by other manufacturers or have different chipsets. Since I have a 755 this worried me a bit so I did some research and came across the following. It shoes Original eqipment manufacturer and chipset for each model Yes the 755 is a real plex :-) Its surprising to see the latest PX-800 is a sony oem. I'm definately not a sony fan.

  12. Yep they coming fast and furious thanks LUK
  13. Hi Does anybody know if hacked firmware (herrie, etc) is any good. Why is there a need for hacked firmware and who are these developers. Im very weiry of the thought of using firmware that is not provided by the manufacture not to mention the loss of warranty
  14. ok confused now. Is the plextor 755 a genuine or a rebage. Seems to have the exact same features as the 760 but with a max of 16x and not 18x. If it is rebadged then what is it a rebadge of. I dont think plextor will put their name and reputation on anything that is not top rate. Im using the 755A and I just luv it. Best writer I've ever had and I tried the Sony, LG, Samsung, NEC and something that came in an HP pc and plex blows them all away
  15. Not sure but I think I tracked it down to my dvd player. Discs work fine on friends player. If I do a lens clean then disc play ok for a movie or two with occasional stick for few seconds here and there. After two movies it sticks again typically almost always around the 50 minute mark. However -R Verbs seem to be ok
  16. Thanks LUK I will try to recalibrate and see how it goes P.S dont you ever get any sleep :-)
  17. Hi I was fiddling with the book type settings and now I am getting sticky burns. Can you advise which settings I should use for booktype I am using a plextor 755 and I have calibrated my MCC +R discs using the autostrategy feature of the plextor drive. 1. On the 'change book type' tab should I set setting to Normal or DVD-Rom 2 On the 'change advanced settings' which of the dropdowns should I select for autostartegy Autoselection(default), Enabled(forced), Enabled, disabled Thanks
  18. If you open the image file with WINRAR (or winzip i assume but have not tested this) then you will get the files which make up the image
  19. Are the free products reliable or are they compromised versions of the retail versions. AVAST antivirus is good but is it as good as the retail products. Why would one product be free and the other a pay product. What I am gettin at is am I compromising my security by using free products
