  1. Are they basically the same things as .mds files? Are there any benefits to using them?
  2. I use IMGBurn's read mode and think it is excellent. I just have a quick questions under the settings for read mode. Under 'image layout file' what do the CCD, DVD, and MDS boxes mean? I know IMGBurn defaults to MDS, which as I understand it just makes a dummy file to hold the layerbreak, so what do the DVD and CCD boxes do? I mainly use IMGBurn to read my dual layers dvds as it makes an exact copy of the original, including the original layer break. Thanks
  3. Pioneer's last two DVD drives (the Pio 112 and 115) have been very well received. I have used the 112d and it has been tremendous. The 115 has gotten even better reviews than the 112.
  4. I believe if you were to use read mode, and then delete the MDS file, and then try to burn the ISO, ImgBurn should ask you to choose the layerbreak. Assuming you used read mode the layerbreak prompt should only be the original. This would also allow you to use read mode and also use 'seamless' layer break option.
  5. I have seen this game before and know of someone who tried to make a backup of their own version of the game and they got this same problem. Plus, if you downloaded this game it wouldn't work anyway. There is a CD key required.
  6. Are you talking about the jacket_p folders? Also, does ImgBurn put in a dummy audio_ts folder on the output of a burnt dvd?
  7. Also, you could try a program called FAVC. It works very very well with AVi files, and it uses HCEncoder. I believe it does more than AVI, but I have only used for AVI files. It even has a very generic menu creator.
  8. As LUK said, definitely check out cdfreaks and the BenQ section. Ive never owned a BenQ 1640, but I have used the BenQ 1620 and it was just terrible on dual layer burns.
  9. I tried this, but could not get it to work. Is that the only problem the riplock? I will just continue to use my LiteOn for ripping/reading, because I am getting very good burns with the Pioneer the way it is.
  10. I am getting very slow reads with Pioneer DVR-112L. I uninstalled the IDE controller by following the guide and allowed windows to find everything again. Also everything is in DMA mode. Here is a log of my last attempted read. For comparisons my LiteOn is working fine when reading. I am using the Buffalo firmware 8.25 that I believe is just modified for bitsetting, as Nero shows my burns on +R media as dvd-rom. Is this a problem with RPC1 or needing the speed patch enabled? ; I 20:05:48 ImgBurn Version started!

  11. Lemkes: It just depends on if your are writing to DVD5 or DVD9. If your writing a DVD5 at say 8X, it should take around 9 total minutes.
  12. Should I leave settings as is? Or is there a recommended setting for each? Speed is not a concern if it hurts quality at all.
  13. I am sorry this is probably a basic question but I do not what the new read mode means. It now gives 2 options for read mode speed setting. MAX and 8X? What is the 8X? And should I leave it at 8X? How does it effect read mode? Thanks LUK.
  14. As mmalves said: Just highlight each layer break and hit the preview button. See which break comes at the best time. As long as the break is at the beginning of a scene it shouldn't cause a viewing problem.
  15. EZ picker mode? Is there any changes to read mode in next version?
  16. Thats weird it wouldn't even start the burn. you definitely shouldn't try burning MAX speed on USB.
  17. The Pioneer DVR-112D is a pretty highly regarded DVD burner by many. The one you have (DVR-115D) is one of the new drives from Pioneer and looks to be a pretty solid drive.
  18. The last ISO I built, when I open it in write mode, it says the sectors are: 4,149,984. When I open the original in read mode, it says the sectors are: 4,149,978.
  19. I was wondering this. Is it possible to build an ISO (or burn from) from the VIDEO_TS file of the file in the DVD Drive? What I mean is, while in build mode, can you hit browse, go to my computer, drive D (or whatever), select the movie, and then the VIDEO_TS file? Wouldn't that also give the original layer break as well. In the one I tried (I didn't create the ISO, wasn't sure what would happen) it gave me the original layer break as an option. This should result in the same way as 'read' mode, but would give the option of using "seamless" playback. Also, just a general question. Does ImgBurn, and for that matter other burning programs, add dummy sectors to the end? I used build mode to make an ISO, then opened it in write mode. It had added 6 sectors to the end from the original. Or is this just postering, and will they be same once burnt?
  20. I know that better media is often suggested. But, to be honest with you guys, I have never really much problems with "dodgy" media. I use Verbatim DVD+R 16X MCC's on anything that is of importance or archiving and burn with my BenQ 1620 at 8x. But, I have gotten all different kinds of shady media as presents, from friends, etc. In fact I have been using some old phillips DVD+R's CMC Mag dye's that won't burn any faster than 4X and even they have worked. I have used a Litey 6s series, LG H10L, and BenQ 1620.
  21. Not sure if a lot of other people use them or not, but Amazon.com usually has decent prices on media and usually offer free shipping on orders over $25.
  22. I can't help you with that specific problem. However, before the more experienced users can help you, you are going to need to post a log at least. Go into ImgBurn and logs, and please post the log for the problem. That will give LUK and others a much better idea of the problem.
  23. Hi. Are you looking to store the DVDs on your computer to watch? Or are you attempting to back them up? IMGBurn cannot copy protected discs (most dvds, unless homemade). In fact IMGBurn won't even rip them to your harddrive. Unfortunately you will need another program.
  24. Ok, as long as AnyDVD is turned off it won't cause problems right? Should I keep the I/O as STPI or change to Elby? Also, could you tell me what the STPI use 'CDrom' class is? Thanks LUK.
