  1. Well, not final, but IB tried to burn the thing despite all these reservations, started trying, an error message popped up after a short while - the text of which I forget now - then made try number two (of 20; there was a counter), failed and so forth. I gave the thing (and that disc) up for lost on the third try. No sense whipping a dead horse. So I guess I should simply buy the right kind of discs next time..
  2. Right, but the next message is... and that sounds kinda' final to me.
  3. My dvd unit is an HP dvd640. I recently by mistake bought double layer discs which I realize have twice the capacity of a standard disc, and I now wonder if they 1) will be recordable in this drive using ImgBurn (I typically burn only 600-800 MB, 'shrunk' movies) and, if so, 2) will they play OK in a standard DVD-player? Thank you. PS: As the discs will (probably) be useless to me anyway I just went ahead and did the deed. First IB warned that the movie would easily fit on a normal disc which I knew already, then this message came: and this I don't understand at all. What does that mean?
  4. Yes, this sounds about right. I think I'll go with Verbatim - like you suggest it's hard to fail using them. Thanks for the burner suggestion. If it comes to that I think I'll go with LG as they have earned profund respect with me over the years. They have surely come a long way since the tacky image they had back in the 80's: Lucky Goldstar video machines come to mind (yes, I was around then, I'm ancient - born in '57). Again thanks for straightening me out.
  5. Right, thank you. I would have never figured that out by myself in a million years. Can you clue me in on how I can find these things out for myself? I mean like what type media the burner does support? Trying different brands and discarding them until I find one that works seems an unsientific way to go about it, to say the least, and would be too much strain on my so-called economy - as well as buying a new burner. Funny thing though - I have been using TDK DVD-R no problem up until just now - last week for instance. I just finished a 10-disk cake box day before yesterday. Hmm...go figure. Thanks for the reply though.
  6. Hi, I am a long-time user and have never had any grief from ImgBurn but with the last three disks (brand new TDK DVD-R) they have all exited early in the verify-process with Unrecovered Read Error as can be seen in the partial log-file output here (starting with the Export Successfully Completed! msg after the write) from one of the sessions: ============================================================ I 20:53:54 Export Successfully Completed!

So, what gives here?
  7. "ImgBurn can't magically make 8 Audio CDs fit into 1" Say WHAT? I want my money back then! But thanks for the CD info and, as I said, here's one (more) happy ImgBurn user.
  8. Thank you for the reply. They are indeed 'ripped' .cda files but as I don't know wether the CD player of the recipient of the copy can read .mp3 files I have to assume that it can't and so are obliged to burn them as standard CD's. Again thanks for the help. Btw, ImgBurn is such a boon and one of the very first programs I reinstall after a crash - nice work!
  9. Thanks for the reply. That's great news. There are 106 files of approximately 5MB each that make up this audiobook and they were ripped from a whopping eight CD's in the original issue. If the quality is undiminished as you say that means I can fit them all onto one CD and so save the expense of seven empty CD's now that I'm about to make a copy of the book. I'll tell you, ImgBurn just gets better and better!
  10. Hello, I am just learning to use ImgBurn to make audio CD's and as always with ImgBurn it's a painless experience; smooth sailing. I just wonder wether I get a warning if I attempt to fit more audio files onto a CD than it can hold at undiminished quality? I haven't been able to provoke such a warning even when purposely adding more files than I think will fit just to see where the limit is. Thank you.
