LIGHTNING UK:

It makes the program send the 'Reserve Track' command all the time when burning DVD+R. Normally it's only needed for DVD-R burning.

 

Q:

So, what is a Reserve Track and why do I need this for a + or - R?

It's just giving the drive a 'heads up' as to how much you're going to burn.

 

Some drives will let you overburn if the command is sent prior to burning - but in these situations, ImgBurn sends it automatically. It's always sent for DVD-R (because it needs to be) but it's not needed for DVD+R and so not normally sent.

 

It's really just these incase you have a weird drive that does things differently if it's sent. It's not an option you should even need to touch.
