ISO creation fails, yet .iso file verifies OK

Recommended Posts

Tried to make an .iso file on hdd from a CD, and when ImgBurn got to the very end, I started getting Read errors and so eventually I aborted. Tried it again with a different reader and same thing: at the very end Retries that I decide to abort. I left both .isos on the hard disk.

 

Then I tried RecordNow 7.3 to make an .iso of this same CD, and it completed without any errors, suggesting to me that the CD I was reading from is just fine.

 

Curious, I went back to ImgBurn and attempted a Verify of one of the "defective" ISOs ImgBurn had created, and the original CD verified against the "defective" aborted .iso just fine!!!??? Surprise!!??!!

 

Finally, I noticed in the ImgBurn logfile a note about "AnyDVD can affect Verify" and sure enough I have AnyDVD installed so I Disabled it and tried again to make a good .iso using ImgBurn. No dice, same problem, ImgBurn goes into Retry mode at the very end; apparently it doesn't like sector 53440 out of a total of 53442?

 

What do you suppose could be at issue with the CD that ImgBurn fails to read at the very end? But then even the aborted .iso verifies just fine!?

 

FIRST ATTEMPT TO MAKE ISO, GOT READ ERRORS AND ABORTED, LEAVING THE "FAILED" ISO IN PLACE:

The next version of ImgBurn has fixed this.

 

At present it's the same with A couple of bootable ISO I have, for instance the ghost2003.ISO I have gets to 99% and errors.

Omigosh that was fast--I was tweaking my post when you replied!!!

 

Is there a beta available somewhere? Guess I will go look for it...

Thanks dontasciime, I appreciate your attention to this.

 

I still don't understand why ImgBurn didn't like my ACTIVEBOOT disk (different certainly from yours) but I just had occasion to make another ISO file from another disk here and it worked & verified fine.

 

I will wait for the next version and try my ACTIVEBOOT disk that fails with 2.32 again, as a test. Thanks again for replying!!!

Maybe it was different issue to that which I mentioned and yours was simply a read error whereby the disc you tried to read ISO from was scratched dirty and your drive just managed to read it this time.

 

actually i just read the CD with ImgBurn 2.3.2.0 so it must not be like the ghost2003 disc

lol what exactly did I fix?!

 

Just looks like it's not reporting the correct size for the disc and that's your drives problem really.

 

If you compare image sizes, the drive says:

 

I 10:37:20 Source Media Sectors: 53,442

 

Yet the RN one said

 

I 10:52:30 Image File Sectors: 53,440 (MODE1/2048)

 

That's 2 sectors different. As I go by what the drive reports in response to being issued the 'Get Capacity' command, I can only assume the info it provides via the 'Read TOC' one is different (again, this is a drive problem).

 

Copy + paste the info from the right panel in ImgBurn (with the dodgy disc in the drive) and we'll know for sure.

lol he edited post as I was typing first reply/response (At time of reading he was saying it got stuck @99% with lots of read retries much in the same way as my ghost 2003 bootable cd does in IB 2.3.2.0 read mode)

 

And I did say later that it was a simple read error :D
