  1. Yes you do. Blu-ray are a totally different format. (You can't play a DVD in a CD player, can you?)
  2. The problem with CMC and other cheap media is they will almost always fail. It might be immediately, tommorrow or in 3 months time. They're poor quality using cheap chemicals. Type "cd rot" into google and see what you find.
  3. A burner is a burner. That said, a lot of laptop drives really suck. Only one way to find out, huh? Get rid of the Imation disks and spend a few dollars on Verbatim media. You'll be happy you did. Lightning_UK is the author of both programs but DVD Decrypter died a sudden death almost 4 years ago. ImgBurn is alot more mature and has lots of other goodies as well. We don't discuss piracy here. Selling unlicensed copyrighted works makes your vendor the worst kind of parasite. No. Burning is burning. All burning software does basically the same thing. It tells the drive what to do and how to do it. It's up to the drive and your media to do the job properly.
  4. This would be the first thing I'd look at. CMC media is garbage. The worst of the worst. Grab some Taiyo Yuden or Verbatim media and I suspect that your problem will be solved.
  5. Do you still have problems if this isn't running?
  6. If a drive fails to produce a quality burn at its maximum speed, then one or more of the 3 items I listed above would be at the heart of the problem, wouldn't they? Also, if the burner has a problem burning above 8x (because of a slow HD or network, for example), BurnProof kicks in automatically to guarantee a good burn. Data burned at 4x is no different if it's burned at 12x. There's no point slowing the burn down if the hardware can cope with it.
  7. You don't NEED verify turned on but it's a good idea. The speed of your burn has nothing to do with the quality of it. 10 years ago it did. These days it doesn't. Let your computer, your drive and your media work that out. They are what control the quality and speed of your burn, not ImgBurn.
  8. ImgBurn can't do batch ISO building and I don't know of a program that does. Why not buy an old XBox (with a modchip) and use XBMC? It queues and plays raw .vob files properly.
  9. It's easy enough to do but an even easier and better option would be to compress the video data so that it fits onto a single disk. http://www.google.com.au/search?hl=en&...earch&meta= EDIT: We do not support this software. If you have questions, please visit - http://www.afterdawn.com
  10. It could be an OS issue. Windows XP (Vista?) limits the amount of open sockets (connections) to 10. My laptop drove me nuts until I opened up a few more. You can use the hack below to increase the amount of open sockets. ***DO NOT*** go over 50. Use it at your own risk. Technically, it shouldn't make a difference but.... http://www.lvllord.de/?lang=en&url=tools
  11. Great picture. I'll be in my bunk.
  12. The word "no" seems to be causing you some difficulty. Let me clarify the word for you, including its usage and its meaning. no: 1. (a negative used to express dissent, denial, or refusal, as in response to a question or request) 2. (used to emphasize or introduce a negative statement): Not a single person came to the party, no, not a one. 3. not in any degree or manner; not at all (used with a comparative): He is no better. 4. not a (used before an adjective to convey the opposite of the adjective's meaning): His recovery was no small miracle.
  13. Correct. The queue feature allows you to use a single image as your source and have it sent sequentially to multiple drives. There should be a guide on how to do this in the GUIDES area.
  14. We're good but we're not psychic. Some more info would be nice. Help us and we can help you.
  15. LOL. Too slow. I shouldn't have gone for a beer break.
  16. Nope. You'll need to open multiple instances of ImgBurn to do this. That said, you can always use the queue feature to burn to multiple drives sequentially. e.g. Set the queue to burn an image to drive 1 then drive 2 then drive 3 etc...
  17. I bought a new laptop a few months back that came with vista pre-installed. When it denied me access to manually delete cookies I formatted the drive, threw the vista CD into the bin and then installed XP. Vista lasted about an hour before I'd had enough of it. Yes. It's that bad.
  18. I was actually reading about this thing less than an hour ago. Not very popular among its users. A re-badged NEC of some sort.
  19. I denounce your heretic theories. Everyone knows that the Earth is flat and I won't be told otherwise. So there. Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm off to find jesus. I think I'll look in the prisons first. Everyone else seems to find him there.
  20. This software (or any other software) has no control over the quality of your burn. Bad burns are ALWAYS the fault of the hardware. Imgburn tells your drive what to do. From then it's up to your drive, your firmware and your media to do the job properly. Slow the burn down to 8x and see what happens.
  21. Imgburn will happily burn multiple files onto disk using the BUILD MODE. You can find Cornys' guide here: http://forum.imgburn.com/index.php?showtopic=1779 Be aware that Ner0 has some functions unavailable to ImgBurn. Ner0 uses some trickery to allow you to burn a few files and then come back later and burn some more. (The facility that allows this is called InCD and it causes havoc with ImgBurn). ImgBurn will burn only ONCE to your CD/DVD. The good news is that ImgBurn has a calculator function which allows you to see how much space you have available when adding files. If you need help with this or any other Imgburn function, ask. That's why we're here.
