  1. Hello again Lightening

    After posting my previous message here, Windows decided to self-configure which took about an hour. Then it installed updates. I was able to then burn a DVD without a problem though I am not sure what Windows has to do with it. Then I burnt a second DVD, but had to push the tray back it a few times after again receiving the Device Not Ready (Medium Not Present - Tray Closed) message.

    It reminds me of an old stuttering car that starts first time sometimes but not always, but yes, I am beginning to think it's a CD-DVD ROM drive problem although the PC is not much more than a year old.

    Thanks again for your help.

  2. Thanks, Lightening, for your reply.

    Yes, I just press the tray back into the drive without touching the disk and press OK on the screen as advised. Normally, this works without any problems. It was fine a few days ago. I thought myself it may be a hardware/drive problem, but yesterday I was able to watch a home movie DVD using the same drive. 

    I see what you mean. Instead of waiting all day for the Device Not Ready (Medium Not Present - Tray Closed) message to disappear, you are suggesting I eject the disk and then reinsert it for X amount of times. I will try that this weekend. Could it not be a problem with the disks themselves?

    Thanks again.

  3. Hello

    When I try to burn a home movie to a blank DVD disk, halfway through the process when the CD-DVD tray pops out and then pops in (I have to do it
    manually), I get the following message:

    Device Not Ready (Medium Not Present - Tray Closed)

    This message lasts forever and in the end, I have to cancel the job. I have now wasted three Verbatim-R disks trying it over and over again. I can see the drive in Windows 10 Explorer and can play a DVD in the same drive. In fact, I used ImgBurn only a few days ago in exactly the same way without any problems.

    I have tested a home movie DVD I burnt in ImgBurn and that plays just fine which suggests that my CD-DVD drive, the hardware, is working just fine.

    Is the error I get related to this particular home movie file? I haven't done anything different to what I would normally do.

    Thank you.

  4. Do you mean for me to insert a CD with Win XP Pro on it (I have it on a CD and on the desktop in a folder), or do you mean for me to insert a blank CD in the CD tray?

    Am I attempting to extract BootImage from my installation files on the desktop and save it to a blank CD?

    What should be the file extension of the BootImage file, please, because I will go through the XP Pro files and folders to see if it's there.Sorry, I am a bit confused.

    Please disregard those two attachments - I can't seem to delete them

    Thanks again




  5. Hello

    I am trying to follow this useful tutorial:


    Under the Advanced tab as per the tutorial, I have the following: (ImgBurn2)

    So far, so good. However, I have had to leave the Boot Image field blank and so I get this message: (ImgBurn1)

    because I am not sure which file to select in my Win XP Pro folder which looks like this:

    Which file should I be selecting in that folder, please, to go into the Boot Image field under the Advanced tab in ImgBurn?

    Thank you.







  6. I have Windows 10 with Autoplay on.

    If I start up VLC and then File | Open folder and choose VIDEO_TS, the movie plays. But I doubt that will be possible on a TV DVD player. Is it likely that all she will need to do is press the TV DVD's 'Play' button?

    Sometimes when I have burnt to a blank disk, the movie plays on my PC, but not on a TV DVD player.

    Thanks again.

  7. Thanks for your reply.

    Yes, I am trying to have the DVD begin automatically on my PC, but I will give the burnt disk to a friend who has no PC - she has a TV DVD and the disk should start automatically in that as well.

    I have got Windows Media Player and VLC Media Player installed. Sometimes, VLC loads up and other times I have an option.

    I will try burning the disk again and see what happens!

  8. Hello

    I am trying to burn a movie onto a blank DVD for use with any DVD player.

    I was hoping the DVD disk would play automatically after burning but, instead, I can just see this on the disk when I double-click on it. Please see attached.

    What am I doing wrong, please? 


  9. Hello Cholla

    Thanks for your reply.

    As you can see from the attached screenshot, I now have my ISO file (3.01GB). So I put as blank DVD in my D drive, open up ImgBurn, select Mode | Write from the menu and Tools | Automatic Write Speed at x8, then click on 'Write image file to disk', then File | Browse for a source file, select my ISO file, and ensure the name of my D drive is in the Destination field.

    Does that sound about right?



  10. Thanks again, especially for the link. In the guide, it says: Now you need to enter the file name for your image file in the 'Destination' box. In this example, we use 'I:\DVD ISO\STAR_WARS_EPISODE_IV.iso'. You can enter it manually or click the 'Browse for a file...' button.

    I do not have an iso files in my VIDEO_TS folder, only 2 BUP files, 2 IFO files, and 4 VOB files.

  11. Hello

    Can I ask, please, what my ImgBurn settings should be for me to burn a movie (video + audio) onto a blank DVD disk. The disk will be used in a TV DVD player and it is important that it starts automatically. 

    On loading ImgBurn, I choose 'Write image file to disk' and I know the write speed should be set as 8x and that I have to point ImgBurn at the location of my VIDEO_TS folder. The 'Destination' should be the name of my D drive (CD/DVD tray).

    Is there anything else I should know, please?

    Thank you.

  12. Hello


    I have quite a few image 'stills' (jpgs) that I would like to burn to a blank DVD (the person who the disk is for only has a TV DVD player and not a CD player).


    What is the best way of doing that, please, in IMGBURN? If possible, the images should appear on his TV screen in a slideshow.


    Many thanks

  13. Thanks to you both.


    I will take a look at the Verbatim site.


    I notice that while Verbatim DataLife + CDs are recommended for burning audio (MP3) files, there seems to be no equivalent for burning movie/video files (movie downloads, footage from a camcorder), such as Verbatim DataLife + DVDs.


    What would that be, please?


    Thanks again for your time.

  14. Hello


    I would be grateful on what I am doing wrong, please, before I waste anymore blank DVDs (Traxdata 8x). 


    I have an MP4 movie which plays fine on my PC, but fails right at the end (97% complete) when burning the VIDEO_TS folder to a blank DVD.


    This is the error I get:




    I am also attaching the log file.


    Thanks for any help.
