  1. Thank you for this information. Thank you also for the terrific program that you have created.
  2. I recently bought an i5 Windows 7 64 bit computer and it would make sense to download and install the latest version of Imgburn. I was reading about a file that was needed that isn't available because a website has went down that carried it. I remember on my older Windows XP computer I downloaded ImgBurn last fall and it worked fine. Should I download an older version? ImgBurn is a terrific program, I mostly use it put .divx files on a UDF data formatted disc. I like the verify function in ImgBurn and I make a disc image with ImgBurn first and burn that. It is such a terrific program.
  3. mmalves: Thank you for the tip. I think I will name my files the same way from now on.
  4. I just tested it out and the Phillips did indeed just put the list in alphabetical order, despite where they may be on the disc. So it is best to rename the files and that way they will play in the order that one perfers.
  5. LIGHTNING UK!: The Phillips has a panel that list the names of the videos files on it, but so far I have experienced that it is in alphabetical order. I sometimes just like to let it play the files and then the Phillips picks the next one in line to play after I am finished watching the first one. If you had a file that you wanted to play first. lets say for example it is the oldest file and there was a file that was a sequel or such, to my experienced so far is that you would have to rename the older file to something that is nearest to the beginning of the alphabet for it to play first. If you had many video clips that were short in length you could put quite a few on one disc and the menu panel only displays 4 files at a time and then you press an arrow to get to the next screen. So having certain files playing in the order you want can come in handy, especially if it came to mp3 or such.
  6. mmalves: Thank you for answering my question. It was kind of you to take the time to do so.
  7. I frequently use the UDF mode to put several video files on one dvd to play in my Phillips Divx Player. ImagBurn seems to write it all in alphabetical order and in alot of cases that is for the best. But is there a way to get one file to play ahead of the other files without renaming it to something closer to the beginning of the alphabet?
  8. mmalves: I never bothered experimenting much with the technology. I just know that if this divx ultra file is put in any other format other than UDF it won't play in my Phillips 5990 Divx Ultra Player. I can play a .divx ultra file in the VLC Software Media Player, but I can only watch the first track that is on the disc. I hope someone can develop a software player that can access and extract what is inside the .Divx DMF that TDA outputs. That is about all that bothers me about this technology. Sometimes a person needs to extract a scene or two from the DVD's they create and in this format, you can't do that, to my knowledge.
  9. mmalves: A Divx Ultra Standalone Player will alow you to access .divx and .xvid files that you put on a data disc. But the Divx Ultra Player allows you also to play discs that are in the Divx Ultra format and this format allows you the typical design and functionality of a regular DVD. I am referring to chapters, ect. TDA 3 allows me to chose between making a standard DVD or an Divx Ultra Disc. Having the ability to put more footage onto a disc has its appeals. It is very handy when you want to put eight, 40 minutes episodes on a single disc or fourteen, 23 minute episodes to a single disc. Though you can find freeware programs that will allow you convert mpeg2 files to the xvid format and you can put these on a disc in the data disc format and play them on a divx format, as long as they are compatable with the player.
  10. I recently bought a program called Tmpgenc DVD Author 3 and it has the ability to take my mpeg2 files that typically I would be using to create a standard DVD Disc, or I can use it to squeeze about 5 and half hours of footage on the same disc in the Divx Ultra format. With a standalone Divx Ultra Player, I can play these discs. When the program finishes authorizing these files it gives them a .divx extension and then I use ImagBurn to build an ISO image in the UDF format and then use ImagBurn to write this iso to a blank dvd r and then go through the verify process. My suggestion is that "like when ImgBurn finds that the files I am trying to make an ISO of have a video ts and audio ts folder it sends a pop up that recommends I change to ISO 9960/UDF, can the program sense that this is suppose to be a UDF format disc. If one burns a "Divx Ultra" disc in ISO 9960/UDF mode it will not play in a standalone Divx Ultra Player. It must be burned in the UDF file format. Since the majority of the time thus far I authorize my Mpeg2 files to the standard DVD format, I have forgot on one occasion to switch to the UDF format to build the .divx file to an ISO image. Is there some way to program such a thing into a future version of ImgBurn?
  11. Thank you LIGHTNING UK. I tried that option and had success. Now I can play my Ultra Divx files on my Phillips Ultra Divx Player. I am very pleased with both the program that authorized my files and ImgBurn that built the UDF ISO and burned and verified it successfully.
  12. I am testing out a new program that allows one to put menus with divx files for the new Ultra Divx standard. I took the file outputed from Divx Author and used ImgBurn to build a data ISO. The file burned correctly and verified, but my Phillips Ultra Divx Player displayed "Unknown Disc" and wouldn't let me access it. I can access the divx file in VLC Media Player, but no menus are displayed and only the first track shows up. One person mentioned on another forum of burning as a UDF file, I think I can do with ImgBurn. Can someone explain to me about UDF and is that the best way to get Divx Ultra Files to be playable on Ultra Divx Players? Thank you very much for any information you can give me on this matter.
  13. Update: I got my other computer today. It has a Pioneer DVD Burner. I burned a disc and here are some results: Image Burn Log: I 07:23:26 ImgBurn Version started!

  14. volvofl10: I have bought several spindles of dvd's since this problem with the Taiyo Yuden's failing. Other brands of discs have failed as well. A local computer technician is building me a computer as soon as I fork over the check. It is going to have a E6400 Dual Core CPU and a Pioneer Burner in it. If I still have failures then I think I might just give up on computing. Since if you have good quality discs, a good quality computer and things still don't turn out, then it is pretty much a waste of time to keep continuing to pour money into the effort. Thank you for your input. Ifcrule1972: My friend thought these discs might save him some money, and I know they don't have a good media code to them, but I have had as much success with them as I have had with my geniune Taiyo Yudens. I am kind of perplexed over the whole situation. Thank you for your input. I don't know what this means but lately I have noticed that sometimes on a successful burn that during the verify stage, that the drive when it is reading the burn, is will slow way down even as low as 0.0 and then gradually build itself up again to 4.5 and 11.0, ect until it is finally finished. I checked this discs with the nero error checking program, and the disc has no errors, but it seems it hits a point and it slows down as well, until it has got passed that spot and then builds up its speed again to reveal no errors on the disc.
  15. illini4life: When you burn your discs and after the verifying process is finished, and you have pressed "OK", does the display on the left that comes up with the disc information say that the disc is completed. I have a few burn lately where they have burned, and even verified, but it says in the display panel that the disc is incomplete, even though the log indicated that the disc was closed and finalized. These discs sometimes will play in a dvd settop box, but the dvd drive in the computer indicates that they are blank. It would be wise not to delete your files after a burn, even if it has verified, if you notice on the display panel it says the disc is incomplete.
