  1. Assuming you're talking about a home brew DVD-Video disc, that would have to be done in the authoring software you use to configure and create the compliant, burn-ready files. ImgBurn only burns said files to a disc. What software are you using to author your DVD-Video discs?
  2. Did a bit of research on both the +RW DL and -RW DL formats. As for -RW DL, JVC appears to have gotten quite far. I found this product page for their VD-W85As, and what appears to be a concept disc given to the press. The discs had no MSRP, and I'm not entirely sure if they were ever actually released. The archived product page missing all of the images suggests to me it was taken down rather quickly though. The specification technically exists, but the discs never went into mass production. Must explain why drives are listed as '-RW DL compatible'. Even looking through some of the archived dvdrw.com pages and some of their old press releases I have found nothing relating to +RW DL excluding the Wikipedia reference to the specification book. Lost to time I suppose.
  3. Swear I've seen them around somewhere- must be losing it. Good to know my drive theoretically would support a nonexistent format. Any day now, DVD Forum. If I was to guess, with Blu-Ray being unveiled as early as 2002, engineering an entirely new re-writable DVD format wouldn't make much economic sense. Hence the DL/TL BD-REs. But who knows, with PC BR adoption being so low, maybe an 8GB re-writable DVD would've found it's niche among legacy users who were tired of DVD-R DL coasters.
  4. Purchased a Pioneer BDR-2212 recently, great 'last hurrah' drive if you're looking for BDXL support. Anyway, I was surprised to see DVD+RW DL listed as incapable in drive specifications. Thinking it was a bug, check the Pioneer specsheet, and sure enough, no read or write on DVD+RW DL. But reads every flavor of dash DVD, DVD+R DL and single layer DVD+RWs. Look through some of Pioneer and LG's older models, no DVD+RW DL support either. Is DVD+RW DL a format that simply lost ground to DVD-RW DL and was never implemented? Reliability issues? Drive manufacturer turf war? I would appreciate an explanation.
  5. Ah I see, thanks. Nice to know I have a clean installation. I will archive and cherish this installer until the day I die. Been thinking about having kids, y'know? Need a heirloom or something. Anyway, appreciate that you're still on the forums and hosting downloads years later for the eleven of us that still burn optical media.
  6. Hello forum, I purchased a new car recently, no auxiliary port and I don't feel like buying an aftermarket radio so I pulled out my CD-RWs. I used this software to author discs years ago, and was careful during installs because I didn't want aids on my computer. Read on the Wikipedia page that the final version still included OpenCandy, I reluctantly installed it using the file hosted here and no adware confirmations (or sneaky mention of it in the EULA) to be found. It's quiet. Too quiet. Checked every folder, task manager, etc. but still feel the need to ask, has OpenCandy been stealthily installed or was it removed from altogether? Thanks
