  1. Then you've been sorely misguided. He stated there's been numerous new implementations ready for the next release. There's also the fact that people have personal lives, people don't live and breath code.

    Feel free to find a different solution.

  2. They're BRANDED verbatim but made by CMC magnetics. The MID doesn't like. Verbatim outsources some of it's production to CMC (and now even more, considering they bought the brand).

    They are verbatim yes but they're the cheap quality (life series) kind. You need the 'datalife plus' ones usually only available online.

    You're just new to this, us experienced users know what to look for.

  3. I'd release it this month tbh. Would be a excellent new year's present, and stop all those topics about 'imgburn is dead?'

    Pretty please? With a cherry on top?

  4. Maxed out a 25GB disc in reality only holds 22.3 this because disc (and that applies to both optical discs and hard drives) manufacturers count on multiples of 1000. Eg 1MB is 1000 bytes (while in reality is not), 1GB : 1000 MB etc...


    However the operating system calculates things differently. It's based on multiples of 2 in the binary system. 1,2,4,8,16,32,64,128,256,512,1024...


    1MB actually 1024bytes, 1GB is 1024MB.


    Due to the repeated 'loss' of that 24 there's a difference. It's the same reason why a 1TB hdd isn't showing as 1024GB in windows but as 978 or something.


    Perfectly normal.

  5. Havent had to do that in a while. But figured i'd give it a shot. I use acronis weekly and manually do a macrium every 2-4 weeks. But glad it's working out for you. I figured i had nothin to lose :) Used it a few times now, hasn't let me down yet. I will say, it's a lot easier to use main interface, but perhaps a bit "too simple" for tech savvy ppl like me ^^. Thought i'd give it a try for a year then see.

  6. ZA? now there's something I haven't heard in years. Really? Even back in the day under XP I couldn't get that crap working properly


    Using Avast internet security here.


    Swapped to acronis last September as I could get a 3pc license for around €40 I think with a coupon. Figured I'd give it a try as it sure as hell was a lot cheaper than a 3pc macrium one.

  7. DisplayPort is relatively new and some see it as the successor to HDMI (for PC) at least. It may not be known to you, but it's not some obscure port. It's been around for a few years now and is relatively common. And dvi to HDMI exist, as well as dvi to DisplayPort.


    Don't cost a fortune and work fine, but if your monitor has an HDMI port itself, I'd go HDMI to HDMI obviously.


    What's your existing monitor model?

  8. I have, afaik the professional ones are only in BD format, can't say I remember getting them in DVD. The most visible different is that there's no VERBATIM branding or barcode stuff on the inner plastic circle on the professional ones. Something that is visible on the standard datalife plus ones. The MID is the same

  9. I do regularly design websites and as such often give them a complete overhaul, working on one right now. That said, while doing that I first look at the menu structure and how it's setup. Unless client then specifically said not to, I keep that same menu structure in the new site.

    Doing so, while the site will physically LOOK different, navigating it will be exactly the same. (Although the position of the menu itself may have changed, but once you know the new location everything remains as is)

    Doing it that way, for me, gives the client a fresh new look while not getting flooded with contact requests by visitors with queries like 'item xxx used to be at location yyy, now I can't find it anymore. Where's the new location zzz on this new website). Doesn't turn away visitors that way.

  10. Care to post the full different specs? But it's 5400RPM (•‿•), Why did they even use that in the first place. That's laptop type speed back in the day. More profit for them I guess. But Intel uhd an upgrade? Depends on the Nvidia card that wax in the system. No Intel uhd built in professor can compete with an equal generation discrete graphics card.

  11. Your first problem is 'outsourced' ''fake'' verbatim's CMCMAG-BA5-000

    Your 2nd problem is that you're using LTH type discs. That technology only lasted a short while in production but wax quickly abandoned by most blank/drive manufacturers and hasn't been produced for years now.

    Get the good ones 'datalife plus' you can only find online, and NOT the LTH ones
