  1. Impressive, this will be near the top of reasons to upgrade to Win7. This should also attract some of the new Win7 fans.
  2. Hmm burned about 5 coasters today trying to figure this out, all Verbatim 16X DVD+R burned on my Samsung SH-203B (SB01 and SB03) @ AUTO Write Speed. I used these same discs in the past with the same burner without problems before I upgraded to Vista. I noticed there once was a Potential 'WaitImmediateIO' Deferred Error which passed on the second try. I had an ImgBurn.ini in the program folder which I cleared because I figured certain XP settings may have persisted. My user account has 'User' rights but I have successfully burned other discs without being 'Administrator' on Vista. I usually burn at half the advertised rate. I am using AHCI. I wanted to post about this before burning more coasters. [EDIT] I also got the exact same error below with a different DVD+RW disc. Error Message Appears when Verify starts: ; //****************************************\\; ImgBurn Version - Log ; Monday, 07 July 2008, 23:47:02 ; \\****************************************// ; ; I 23:34:44 ImgBurn Version started!

  3. It seems to erase my dvd-rw fine, i only tried a quick erase btw. also i checked the file(s) that were burned myself and they are indeed corrupt.
  4. Hello I figured out how to burn from VMware (by changing the virtual optical drive to scsi from ide) but when I burn to it I always get corrupt burns. I've tried the SPTI and Nero WINASPI32 with both producing verified bad burns. Just some details: XP Pro SP2 with latest updates, running as a guest in VMware, using host Samsung SH-S203B.
  5. I come from Nero Burning ROM 5 and 6, when 7 came out I switched to the "lite" editions. Even with the light editions Nero was still bloated and buggy imo. I've had ImgBurn on my computer for a while but when Nero v8 came out I made the full switch. ImgBurn has a much better UI because most options are presented in the same window which reduces the steps and time it takes to actually burn. ImgBurn is also has the smallest footprint of any burning app I know and I just saw a topic on the forums here that it is also "portable". I also like how ImgBurn supports DVDInfo so I can get information on my burn quality. The only thing ImgBurn does not do that I occasionally need is burning audio cds, though I hear it's planned for a future release; for now I use InfraRecorder for that purpose. There are many other reasons I use ImgBurn but I wont bore you with the details. I saw the "sneak peek" at the new beta version in the Ubuntu Wine guide and I am really anticipating it!
