  1. Futz, I can't seem to edit my previous post (I keep getting post to index.php not implemented when I try???)


    D:\D..\>Subst E: .&E:

    E:>>For /l %a in (1,1,124) Do Md D&Cd D

    E:\D\D\.....D\>Subst F: .&F:



    That gets you 372 levels in, rinse, lather, repeat. B)


    Why anyone would want to do this is beyond me.




    P.S. You can get something similar, without using Subst, by using an NTFS feature called a Junction, (see hardlink.exe at http://www.bearcanyon.com/tools/) which lets you remount a directory somewhere else, so you can drag a junction of C:\A\B\C\D\E\F\ to C:\F. I use hardlink.exe a lot when I want to backup only some files in a directory, but want them IN a directory on a disk. Create a new directory, Hardlink the files from the src dir and then backup the new dir. Saves duplicating files on the HD.

  2. I believe NTFS can handle path lengths up to 32767 characters long, though no subdirectory name can be >255 characters and Windows Explorer can't handle more than 255 characters in a path, neither can cmd.exe. You can get round this by using subst, I just created a directory tree on my 2k box that was about 370 levels deep, path length 740ish.

  3. Kirk,


    That looks awesome! I would love to have the time and tools (and skill) to do that kind of work. At the moment all my tools are stowed in Australia.



  4. SpybotSD can clean out MRU entries, so can MRUBlaster, but I don't know if they work on Vista.


    Alternatively, if you are comfortable with it and if you have Regedit on Vista...


    Pick one of the names, go into regedit, do a search for the filename, keep going till you find the name in a key that includes an MRUList entry, and clear out the obsolete registry entries.


    On Win2K, the relevant key is HKey_Users\...\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Currentversion\Explorer\ComDlg3\OpenSaveMRU\iso


    I have found on 2k and xp that you don't need to adjust the MRUList entry, just delete out the ones that say:


    a Reg_SZ C:\...\IsoFileName.iso

    b Reg_SZ C:\...\IsoFileName.iso


    (Use at your own risk, I'm not responsible if you stuff your machine. I'm comfortable using regedit to clear out this kind of cruft, but if you're not don't touch it.)



  5. .... But if the Arthor felt this was a good buffer size for default settings for his program then it must be so...


    Arthor?, who is Arthor?, I thought his name was ******* >_<


    (Makes note to self, treble check all speeling for my next 20 posts or I will?really? regret it...) :whistling::whistling:



  6. I don't know, volvo looks very like this:




    Personally I don't mind that at all !! :lol:



    You know, for a 98 year old of unspecified gender, she? looks pretty good. :whistling:


    Besides if s/he is a 98 year old, I re-iterate my plea that the Beta team don't do the naked run thingy.


    Now I'm going to have nightmares....

  7. Will we also get banned for pleading that the Beta team DON'T run naked through the streets. >_< >_< >_<


    That visage is something I really don't think we should associate with ImgBurn.

  8. Unfortunately there ain't a firmware update, so I'll stick with the -R's for now until I get a new burner.


    The budget won't reach there just yet, as I just had to get a new drive after the 160G I bought died due to a power supply fault, and my second 20G is failing. Plus my 21" ViewSonic just died and my 20" Philips is showing its age.


    I'm sure I should just get a credit card reader installed in the front of this thing :(


    Maybe next month.



  9. Barf, just lost a post...


    I emailed SVP to see if I could get some samples to try in my drive and I did, a few more than I expected.


    The 16xDVD+R Verb Silvertops only show as a 1x in my drive, but the 16xDVD-R Verb Silvertops just gave me a flawless verify after a buffer underrun. I have NEVER had a good disc after a BU with this drive before, ever. I'm sold on TY dyes and verb disc quality.


    Next I think I'll try the TY unbranded 8xDVD-R TYG02's and then.....


    I'm sold on SVP just because of their customer service, and I aint bought anything yet!



  10. Umm, yeah. I just looked at the images again and it does, doesn't it.


    But I did recover a badly scratched disc using IsoPuzzle by getting most of it off using my burner, then shifting to my old Cdrw/dvdrom and IP managed to get the rest, of course it took a while (~10 hours) IP does things like pause during reading to give the disc and drive a chance to cool down.


    It's good, but I think he might need a miracle :-)



  11. Not wishing to be seen saying the same thing over and over but this is the situation that IsoPuzzle was written for.


    Recovering a bad disk by reading as much as possible in one drive, then changing to another drive or even another computer to grab just whats missing, and merging the data from both (or multiple) reads into one Iso image.


    Give it a try.



  12. Hi MarkC,


    thank you for your time and suggestions!

    IsoPuzzle just crashed on this system...and Imgburn 2.2 is being installed a few mins ago and it seems as it does what I searched for :)


    If you wouldn't mind, could you pop a post over at http://forum.doom9.org/showthread.php?t=114815 to describe what happened? Marsoupilamis would probably appreciate the details so he can fix it if the fault is in IsoPuzzle.


    But it's great that ImgBurn handles this now as well, and I was right about 2.2 coming soon, I was only 4 hours early :teehee:





  13. Thanks LUK!


    And a change log that's 50% bigger than the one for, that's going to take a while to digest!


    I've just been having a good look round (mostly to find the?'Optimise?Duplicate?Files'?option,?took?me?a?while)?and?noticed:




    Shouldn't the one below the device be 'Lower Class Filter'?


    Sorry for finding that on day 1.



  14. Isobuster can do it, so can a few other Cd/Dvd Burners like CdBurnerXPPro, just google for them. There was a previous discussion related to this here, post 16 by DudeBoyz listed a few, though my personal favorite is IsoPuzzle.


    And 2.2 is coming when it's ready, I think it also might solve your problem, if the hints dropped about the upcoming new features are anything to go by.



  15. Thanks for your input Jack,


    It seems like most of the branded TY's occasionally have a bad batch, much like I've had with the DataWrite Yellow's. Some batches with the Ritek G05 dye, I've had a least 2 bad spindles, and some with CMC MAG, which have been rubbish with >50% failures.


    I'm leaning more and more towards just spending the money and getting TY branded disks.
