  1. Welcome. This is beyond the scope of ImgBurn. 2 other options come to mind though. . A dedicated and expensive backup program such as "Ghost". . Backing your critical files up to a second, third or forth harddrive using free software. (My personal choice) Another option comes to mind and that is to install your system to a mirrored RAID drive. Most motherboards support doing this these days. Your operatiing system is essentially installed to 2 identical drives at the same time (hence the term "mirrored"). If one fails, the other takes over. You then replace the faulty drive with a new one and your 2nd drive is backed up automagically (mirrored) to the new drive. FWIW, I don't bother with any of this type of nonsense. I keep backups of the files (and drivers) I need and don't worry about the rest.

  3. It shouldn't be hard if you are the one who created the ISO in the first place. That said, GSpot can help. http://www.headbands.com/gspot/
  4. Just to clarify, you didn't buy Memorex media but RITEK as shown above. Our experience shows them to be dodgy at best. Grab some Taiyo Yuden or Verbatim media and see if it helps. Just so you know, niether ImgBurn nor Nero is at fault here. Your drive is reporting an error (maybe the drive itself but more than likely the media) and the burning software is displaying that error.
  5. Not sure about the consenting part. Afterall, she's dead.
  6. Sorry. My bad. *cough*
  7. What a great little tool. Works a treat. If ImgBurn already has files in the queue, is there any way you can tweak it to add more files instead of opening another copy of ImgBurn?
  8. Bored housewife no longer. Now a bored housewife with at least 1 friend. LOL!

  9. It's been a long day. See? Human afterall.
  10. Multi-session (in the technical sense of burning some now and some later) just isn't used by the majority anymore. Most of us here have fought with InCD and other packet writers at one stage or another but since the advent of flash drives and also cheap, high capacity HDs, we just don't use multi-session.
  11. You're right. It doesn't make sense. At least not to me anyway. ImgBurn was never designed to be a professional backup utility. It's for general, everyday use by non-professionals. That said, automating the backup is the easy part via a batch file and a cron or scheduler but you're talking about manually changing paths and directory structure within ImgBurn itself for reasons that are obviously beyond me as we try to teach people to prepare their task before burning. It makes things easier for us as well and for the majority of users. Perhaps I'm just being stubborn but a task like a bootdisk isn't going to change radically. Afterall, you will retain most of the directory structure and the files included within. Changes obviously take place but the basic structure of the disk will remain unchanged and intact. Maybe a few sub-folders or files changed but your root folder is essentially the same. Lastly, copying 8GB of data to a folder somewhere isn't as much of a problem as it used to be. Particularly if you're using the same folder all of the time and also because large capacity HDs are so cheap these days. Microsoft have free sync software available to scan for changes in a source folder and automatically create backups via the scheduler. Also, batchfiles for copying a large amount of files can also be run via the scheduler. I'm not trying to be a dick but if your files are that critical, send them to another HD and then send those files to ImgBurn and do both tasks automatically.
  12. I can't help it. Here's my 2c worth. Re: Systems with non-bootable USB drives:- Without knowing any details on who you're talking about exactly, (yourself or other people using your end product), I suggest that if the ability to perform a boot from a flash drive is needed, buy some hardware that supports it. My crappy Athlon 2400 boots from a flash drive. It's 5 years old and currently running FreeNAS. It has a stonking 256MB of RAM and 4 x 400gig HDs in it. It's pretty much useless for anything else but I can't ask the software vendors to downgrade their software to support such antiquated and crappy hardware. Re: Media expense:- You say you're using CDs? I bought a tub of 100 Taiyo Yuden CDs a few weeks back for $30. That's 30c each. Doing one backup a day, your backup costs for the entire month is $9. $108 for the year. That's works out at: Less than 1 x junior burger per week or Less than 1 x beer per week or About 6 x cigarettes per week. Hardly a bank-breaker.
  13. I don't know what the boss thinks of this but it seems like alot of screwing about for something that can be more easily managed with a decent file manager before adding it to the build. i.e. Preparing what you want to burn before loading ImgBurn.
  14. Try this. http://forum.imgburn.com/index.php?showtop...amp;#entry25654
  15. Why use FAT32 anyway? convert [drive]: /fs:ntfs
  16. A fellow, former owner I'm guessing. They really were a chunk of shit. How it got past beta testing is beyond me. Shit. Shit. Shit. I would like to take the time to thank you for dredging up this miserable moment in our shared history and ask you not to mention it again. Like a dose of genital herpes, it's far from being one of lifes' highlights. Infact, were I ever to contract this particular STD, I would wear it as a badge of honour if given the choice of admitting to it or to the actual purchase of a Netgear NAS. Freecom? Nah. 1TB drives are now less $AU300. All donations can be sent to: The Shamus McFartfinger HD fund c/o The station you are now viewing.
  17. Is that drive in a laptop? My Optiarc drive hates anything over 4x.
  18. Windows 2000 and XP (Vista?) has an undocumented "feature". That feature being if a drive has trouble reading, it will automatically switch from DMA (fast) to PIO (slow). The problem is that it doesn't switch back, which means your drives will run like a sick dog. Slow and lethargic. Compounding the problem is the fact that Windows will report that everything is working A-OK and that DMA is enabled when it isn't. If your HD/DVD is reading or writing very slowly, the best option is to go into DEVICE MANAGER and uninstall the IDE controllers. This forces Windows to re-install them after re-booting and sets them as DMA instead of PIO, allowing your drives to run at full speed.
  19. Crap. I will not get another beer while replying to posts. I will not get another beer while replying to posts. I will not get another beer while replying to posts. I will not get another beer while replying to posts. I will not get another beer while replying to posts. I will not get another beer while replying to posts.
  20. If your source is unprotected and you read the disk to an ISO image, you will get a 1:1 copy.
  21. Wouldn't a second harddrive be a better idea? Hardware is getting cheaper every day. A 500gig external drive costs $AU150 these days. http://cgi.ebay.com.au/Western-Digital-500...1QQcmdZViewItem
  22. For future reference. http://forum.imgburn.com/index.php?s=&...post&p=6175
