  1. Hmm seems we're more than a few interested in RAW CD burn support in ImgBurn.

    LIGHTNING, just out of curiosity, what is your rationale for not wanting to implement this burning mode?

    Is it philosophical? Is it to protect ImgBurn from possible legal issues somehow? (I remember the switch from DVD Decrypter to ImgBurn..)


    Here I just would love to get rid of Alcohol 120% that I solely use for the "Playstation" burning profile (basically RAW DAO burning I believe).

    Since ImgBurn covers 99% of my burning needs (and then some), I find it just silly to have another soft/drivers installed for that one missing feature.


    RAW DAO is needed to burn certain images with intentional mastering errors (so they are not auto-corrected on the fly by the burner), I believe.





  2. Thanks for the report dbminter.
    Are these made in India or Singapore?

    I find out those made in India are actually made by Moser Baer using licensed Mitsubishi technology.


    In the batch of those I ordered, made in India, I got a few duds, nothing bad but just thought I'd mention it.

  3. Let me know how those Verbatim AZO CD-R's go.  Forward their MID.  I'm curious to see if they're actually Verbatim or CMC.  AZO is supposedly a proprietary formula developed by Verbatim.  But, who's to say they don't just farm it out to CMC to do the actual manufacture.



    If they're good, I will try some AZO inkjet Verbatim CD-R's I found on Amazon.com after you posted this.

    dbminter, got them today.

    They're high quality Mitsubishi's alright  ;)

    Let me know if you need other infos.



  4. Figured the Verbatim stuff out.


    In a nutshell, all Verbatim CD-R packs branded "CD-R Extra Protection" are CMC / China crap.


    And all Verbatim CD-R packs branded "AZO Crystal" are MKM / India manufacture.


    So I just went in and ordered a 50x Spindle Verbatim 43343.


    Here is the full 2014 Verbatim catalog.

  5. Hey all,

    I've been going nuts trying to find quality CD-Rs.

    It sounds crazy I know, but Verbatim has completely switched to CMC it seems, Sony has stopped producing CD-Rs altogether and the other brands I've never had much experience with.

    Where do you guys buy quality CD-Rs in this day and age? Is there any serious manufacturer left?

    Are there any MKM CD-Rs under any brand anywhere?

    Thanks for any info,




  6. +1

    RAW Mode for burning CDs would be awesome indeed.


    I've been using CDRWin for years and since I changed my drive, the "RAW" option has become greyed-out in CDRWin.

    I suspect because support for drives newer than 2010 has just never been implemented in this soft (which is now dead :/)


    Looking for a solution, I found Alcohol 120% does support RAW mode for my drive and it works just fine.

    But I'm otherwise _really_ not a fan of Alcohol and certainly wished I could do the same in ImgBurn instead and ditch Alcohol (lol).


    I hope LIGHTNING would reconsider a RAW option for Write Mode (at least for CDs!).

  7. Hello,

    I use the latest version of ImgBurn to date.

    I noticed a small bug pertaining to ImgBurn AutoPlay.

    At Settings > Registry > Shell Extensions, I disable _every_ entry in the list.

    Yet, in Tweakui can still be seen 2 ImgBurn AutoPlay entries, maybe from an older ImgBurn version?

    Please tell me how to delete them safely, thank you very much,




  8. I say again, splashkiller will do the job for you no worries. It's a tiny freeware app (40kb or something), runs in the systray and is configurable for those apps you don't want to kill the splashscreen (e.g ImgBurn :D)




    What about an argument such as /nosplash ?

    (Like some other programs have, isobuster, goldwave, etc..)

    No need to put an option _inside_ the program really, but using /nosplash in the shortcut would suppress it.




  9. According to the change log, this has been implemented in version,

    Added: A button on the 'volume label' windows to have it insert the current date/time in YYYYMMDD_HHMM format.

    But i'm now using and I just cannot locate this button (in build mode!)

    Either in the popup window or the Labels tab on the right.

    I tried restoring setup defaults, same!

    Please enlighten me ;)

    See you!
