ISF Newbie (1/5)

  1. I don't recall ever ripping audio CDs to ISO. I rip to BIN/CUE because I almost always add or tweak CD Text and I don't know if that's even possible if I rip to ISO.
  2. It is very odd. Sometimes Imgburn offers to create .bin file and sometimes .iso file when I rip an audio CD. I can't figure out how or why it decides this. I have always AFAIK wanted a .bin file. If it offers to create a .iso file and I make a name like myartist_title.bin it still says it's creating a .iso file. To be sure I'm getting a .bin file I need to click the dropdown and select .bin instead of .iso. This is frustrating. I have hunted in the Tools/Settings' tabs and can't find where I can configure Imgburn to offer to create a .bin file instead of a .iso file. I figure it must be there somewhere but I can't find it. What am I missing?
  3. Normally, I don't have difficulties. But am having a persistent problem with one disc today. It's Chuck Berry's The Great 28 CD. I've ripped with two different PCs using two different burners and the copies I've made consistently have a screeching sound for 10 or so seconds more than 1/2 way through the last track (i.e. track 28). When I play that track using the original disc, it's sounded fine to me using all drives and players. The rip to WAV of that track using Windows Media Player sounds even worse! But if I play the track using Windows Media Player (i.e. in real time) it sounds fine. So, there's something about track #28 that's evidently giving problems and I figure if I can get Imgburn to rip at a slower speed it might produce copies that play OK. Is there a way to ask Imgburn to rip at a slower speed than it otherwise would? Here are the rippers I'm using with Windows 10 PC's: Pioneer BDR-XS07S Silver 16X BD-R 2X BD-RE 16X DVD+R 12X BD-ROM 4MB Cache Serial ATA Revision 3.0 Blu-ray Burner. LG WH16NS40 16x Internal Super Multi Blue Blu-ray Disc Rewriter (OEM Version)
  4. Ah, I can post again here, in Chrome, after logging out and back into the Imgburn Forum. Is it possible I got a bad spindle of Verbatims a couple weeks ago?
  5. Signed out of forum, then back in, can now post in this thread... progress! Hmm, will try to post in my thread about analysis of CD stalling and see if I can post there...
  6. Thanks, I'll try that (I mean the clearing cache, cookies, etc. suggestion, I hadn't seen your post about screen shots or video... don't know how to grab a second or two of video, what's the means to do that?). This seems to be the only thread I can reply to ATM. Seems odd to me. Anyway, have you had a chance to look at my Imgburn log I attached to a post earlier today in the thread about not being able to analyze CDs?
  7. I can post here, I cannot post in my original thread or the thread complaining I can't post in my thread! But here I can. LIGHTNING, you said: Well, I opened the developer tools, tried to post, the same behavior happened (a second after clicking, the reply window did not stay open and I couldn't post anything, much less type anything in it). I have no idea how to interpret what's going on in the developer tools.
  8. How do I post the log? Ah, I found it. Here's the log that should include info about the travails I experienced last night when several Verbatim CDR burns failed (I heard the woman go, "Oh Nooo!"). Attached is the log file dated 3/25/21 (i.e. current one on that machine). ImgBurn.log Note this, for instance: W 17:53:28 Failed to Write Sectors 12636 - 12662 - Reason: Write Error E 17:54:29 Failed to Write Sectors 12636 - 12662 - Reason: Write Error E 17:54:52 Operation Failed! - Duration: 00:02:13 I'm unfamiliar with the log, I just cherry picked those lines. Perhaps inspecting the log will reveal or help to reveal to some degree the nature of the problems I've been having using Imgburn, my burners, media, etc.
  9. Ah, so I swapped machines, I'm on my sort-of-clone of my other machine on which I was having the problem. I CANNOT access our first thread together, but can access this one, that is in order to reply. Hmm... does it have to do with my account in this forum? I have a desktop I could try...
  10. I could try my other laptop. I have another very similar laptop that is pretty much interchangeable with this one. I'm probably going to go back to sleep now, though. It's around noon where you are but here it's 4AM! Thanks for the help! Um, when I get those threads working again, your asking me to post the log. I'm unfamiliar with that. It's a file under the Imgburn install? Am I to attach it or copy/paste its content? Will it cover only recent action(s) or over a period of time?
  11. I can't reply to either of those 2 threads now. CTRL+F5 didn't stop the behavior. Only way it seems I can post now is to start a new thread, which is what this is. Hmm.
  12. Ah, CTRL+F5, well, never heard of that before. I thought F5 itself did a refresh. "If it happens again, you'll know what to do." Um WHAT!?? Another thing occurred to me. I'd been getting messages popping up in Windows 10 saying that my Internet Settings were insufficient and I should click-to-fix. I did do that about the time I was having this issue and started this help-me thread. I figured it might just have to do with one tweak I do to allow me to play MP3s off my system without confirming that I'm sure it's safe to do so. I work (volunteer) at a college radio station and we're all creating shows at home during the pandemic and I need to work with MP3s, WAVs too, very often listening to them before using them. Having to confirm safety is an extra step, so I do this: Run command: Windows key + R inetcpl.cpl Security Tab Click Custom level button near bottom Scroll down to: ‘Launching applications and unsafe files (not secure)’ option Click Enable Click Apply Click OK So, I'd done the click-to-fix Internet security settings, checked and indeed I once again had to confirm before hearing an MP3, so I did the steps above, fixing that. PERHAPS all that had to do with the problem of posting in my thread having gone away. Now why Chrome had the problem and not Brave, and then later all browsers had the problem and now Chrome doesn't (and probably the others don't either, but I haven't checked) I can't guess.
  13. So, immediately after posting the above OP, I go back to my thread and OMG, I can post (and did). This using Chrome. I can't imagine what the issue is/was... I had not seen your reply, LIGHTNING UK!
  14. OK, I can post now using Chrome. Suddenly today I had the same problem I had before, when I put my cursor in the Reply box, it would disappear after 1/2 second. Before, my workaround was to use Brave Browser, but it too now would bork out in 1/2 second. Same with Edge and IE! I then posted in Forum issues, came back to this thread immediately and suddenly I can post. Strange stuff... OK, so I'm pretty confused right now. I have my new burner, an external BR burner that supports M-Disc, whatever that is... a Pioneer BDR-XS07S. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B081R74KVW/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 I had been having problems burning discs with my old LG DVD-R burner from 2016: LG GE24NU40BK 24x DL USB 2.0 External Drive A few Verbatim CDR's burned with it from brand new originals would not play in my CD players. So that in tandem with the issue in my OP here (stalling when analysing perfectly find discs, 2 of them) had me thinking the LG drive had problems, using a disc cleaning solution didn't fix it, so I bought the Pioneer. Now I'm having problems using the Pioneer burner! I'll be burning a CD using Imgburn and get an error. This has happened several times last night. To complicate issues, I was running low on CD blanks and ordered and received a 100 pack of Verbatim blanks, receipt date Mar. 15, 2021. I had some Verbatim left over but mixed the new ones with the old ones on spindles and don't know how to figure out what's "new" and what's from the stock I still had. So, all kinds of things could play into the burn errors: Bad discs, problem drive(s), cables, cable adapters (I'm using the Thunderbolt 3 port on this laptop for the external drives, requiring a USB-C connection). Yes, I'm kind of flummoxed here. I have around 8 bad discs now. Last night I resorted to turning on Verify when reading or writing with Imgburn. It takes twice as long (something like that) but I figure I can at least get assurance that my reads/writes are going to work. I figure I should isolate the problem. Is it the new verbatim discs? Is it the new Pioneer BR burner? Is it a cable? A connection (port issue on the computer)? An adapter? I'm thinking I should maybe buy some new discs elsewhere in order to test the theory that the new Verbatim discs I ordered are problematical. They are: Verbatim CD-R Blank Disc 700MB 80 Minute 52x for Data and Music - 100 PK Spindle FFP https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003ZDNZSI/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  15. Well, I'm gratified I can post here at least. Here's my issue: I started a thread on March 13: I was using my default browser, Chrome, on Windows 10 laptop. No issues. But after several posts I suddenly could not reply to the post. When I put my cursor into the reply box, even before typing anything sometimes it would bork out, disappear. I tried a different browser (Brave Browser), no problem. I posted that anomaly in the thread and somebody or several people said they'd had problems in Chrome on the Imgburn Forums. So, as I continued my usage of the thread I did NOT use Chrome and was fine. Today, I want to post again in the thread and I find I have the same can't post in that thread issue with every browser I try: Chrome, Brave, Edge, IE. I'm signed in OK. What could possibly be the issue? Thanks for your help.
