  1. I see. I would have imagined that the owners of the ImgBurn site wouldn't want links on their site pointing to files with malicious software (as reported by 28 vendors according to VirusTotal) and ruining the reputation of their software. I didn't get to the installer as my virus scanner shut it down before I could open it, so I can't say if it was just added content to the installer. The installer was quite a bit bigger than the original though. I don't know if the host would do anything if they added it themselves, so I guess it ends here. Thanks for the explanation.
  2. I downloaded ImgBurn from the first link on the download page (Digital Digest) and when I tried to run it my virus scanner when nuts. I also scanned it on virustotal (link) and it returned a lot of hits for malicious content. One red flag is that the file was called "ImgBurn.exe" as opposed to having the version in the name like it usually does. I then got the file directly from the ImgBurn web site and it was called SetupImgBurn_2.5.8.0.exe, which was more like what I expected. It return no hits on virustotal. I don't want others to get infected by this so I want to report it to the creator. Anyone know how to do that?
  3. In case anyone was wondering what happened, Asus said that my drive was defective and I had to send it in for repair, because they couldn't reproduce the problem on their end. That's AFTER numerous emails where I finally convinced them that the drive actually supports BDRE-XL. When I asked them if they tried the same model disc as I used when they couldn't reproduce the problem, they didn't respond. In the end, since my drive was out of warranty, I didn't send it it because I didn't want to pay for any "repairs" they might do (or $35 on top of shipping for them to just look at it). Luckily the seller on eBay that I bought the disc from gave me a refund because it didn't work. I guess no one was really happy in the end here. But at least it wasn't because if IMGBurn.
  4. It's the ASUS SBW-06D2X-U drive. I bought it a couple years back, so I'm guessing it's not the latest one they've put out. I've been in touch with their support and they're trying to say that the drive doesn't support BDRE-XL, even though on the web site for the drive it says it supports BDXL and 100GB discs. In the list of discs they gave me that they support, BDRE-TL is there, and they don't seem to understand that it's the same as BDRE-XL (i.e. triple layer). Kinda frustrating when a company's support doesn't know what they're talking about.
  5. Thanks for the tips guys. I went on Asus's site for the drive and there didn't seem to be any firmware updates available, so I emailed their support about the issue. Let's see if they can do anything about it.
  6. I just got a Sony BDRE XL 100GB disc and am trying to erase it to write onto it, but I'm getting an error that the disc is write protected. It's rewritable, so that doesn't make any sense. Below is the log output. Any ideas why this might be happening? I 00:57:33 Initialising SPTI... I 00:57:33 Searching for SCSI / ATAPI devices...
