ImgBurn Publisher's description
from LIGHTNING UK
Write most types of CD / DVD.
Added: An 'Advanced' input mode to build mode where you have total control over the layout of the disc and can add new folders, change names etc. (i.e. you're no longer limited to burning an existing folder structure on your hard disc as-is) Added: Optional logging when hidden or system files/folders are skipped in Build mode due to the current settings (i.e. when 'Include Hidden Files' or 'Include System Files' are disabled). Added: Yet another attempt at setting the write speed - this one does it 100% by the book. It fills the fields in the performance descriptor sent via 'SET STREAMING' with the values returned in the descriptor after issuing the 'GET PERFORMANCE' command. (The previous best method of setting the speed missed one field out) Added: An option (off by default) to enable the enumeration of medium changer devices (this was previously always enabled) on the I/O tab in the Settings. Added: Support for enumerating medium changer devices via the SPTI 'Device Interface' method too - previously it was always done by 'Device Class'. Added: The graph data preview in the Settings now uses a default value for media/volume id if one isn't available based on the current media/image file. Added: Support for another IOCTL for locking the drive - this one (only) appears to work with the 'Device Interface' enumeration method of the SPTI I/O interface ('lock volume' doesn't). Added: Support for using 'Opti Drive Control' as the IBG viewer when you click the 'Display Graph Data' buttons/menu option. Added: ImgBurn now adds itself to the context menu's 'Open With' submenu for files it's associated with. Added: Debug logging to the function that compares the image file/disc layouts. Added: Option to disable the 'Fix VTS Sectors' function when building a DVD Video disc. Added: The 'Create DVD File' feature can now make DVD files with the MediaType field set to 'CD'. Added: Support for saving plain MODE1/2048 discs as a MODE1/2352 image
What's New in This Release:
Added: Additional info (service name and driver version for hard disk controllers) to the 'Family Tree' text.
Added: 'Supported Read Speeds' to the disc info text in Read/Verify modes.
Added: New log entry (when burning DVD-RAM/HD DVD-RAM/BD-RE) showing the current state of the 'Hardware Defect Management' feature on the drive. When active, the drive would 'normally' take longer to burn a disc due to the automatic 'verify after write' process.
Added: Option to use the system default language. When an exact match cannot be found (i.e. the correct translation file is missing from the Languages folder), the program will attempt a partial match.
Added: Ability to perform LiteOn's SmartErase functions.
Added: Show 'MID' in the 'Disc Information' section of the text on the right - easier to find and always available under the same heading.
Added: Ability to translate the image/disc size values on the recently added 'Overburn / Truncate' prompt.
Added/Changed: When reading Q sub-channel data fails, the program will attempt to read RAW sub-channel data (and deinterleave it to get Q) instead.
Added/Changed: Option to include 'Burn using ImgBurn' file association entries in whatever's the default progid of a given file extension - previously, this was done by default.
Changed: When renaming an item in the Disc pane of the DLE window (on Vista+), the program will now exclude the file extension from the initially selected text.
Changed: Renaming items in the Explorer pane of the DLE window is now also possible via the 'normal' method of a single mouse click on a selected item (rather than just pressing F2).
Changed: Default size of I/O Buffer. (Less than 1GB RAM = 20MB, Less than 2GB RAM = 40MB, Everything else = 80MB)
Changed: When the drive fails to read a block of sectors in Read/Verify mode, the program will now log the error it returned before attempting to read them one by one (so the original error message doesn't go unreported).
Changed: Reverted to using original/basic messagebox for overburn question when in Build/Discovery modes.
Changed: Split the DVD/HD DVD/BD Video reading of various files to obtain a volume label into their own options rather than them all using a single one in the DVD Video section.
Changed: Tweaked some code that generates the volume label suggestion on DVD/HD DVD/BD Video builds.
Changed/Fixed: When CCD image layout file creation is enabled, PreGap sectors will be converted/added to 'Index 0' sectors and included within the IMG file.
Changed/Fixed: Workaround for infinite loop issue with some virtual drives caused by incorrect info being returned for the 'READ SUB CHANNEL' command.
Changed/Fixed: The autoloader 'Auto Abort On Error' option didn't apply to Read mode.
Changed/Fixed: Workaround for buggy (LG) drives that return 'Invalid Field in CDB' rather than 'Invalid Field in Parameter List' in response to a certain command.
Fixed: Default Overburning Method always reverts to 'Overburn'.
Fixed: Creating MDS files when it shouldn't have been.
Fixed: Changing the number of copies required for an image (on the Write Queue window) that was currently being burnt didn't update the value displayed in the progress window.
Fixed: Bug parsing the metadata in WAV files.
Fixed: Clicking the email link in the about box (and 'ok' on the prompt) didn't fire up default email client as it should have done (it did nothing).
Fixed: Problem with long initial file names causing an 'error 0x3002' prompt to be displayed and preventing open/save dialog boxes from opening under XP (and probably older OS's).
Fixed: Potential false positive in code that detects BCD within the RAW TOC returned from a CD.
Fixed: When reading from an 'Advanced Format' drive with 4k (physical AND logical) sectors, the program could pop up an error (invalid parameter?) at the end of a burn/verify operation. Clicking 'Retry' would allow it to complete successfully though.
Fixed: Read/Verify modes weren't exporting graph data to the file name specified via CLI.
Fixed: The last digit in a CD's MCN was wrong.
Fixed: Potential crash when displaying the 'Overburn' dialog from within Build mode.
Fixed: Potential crash when the 'Optimise Duplicate Files' option is enabled.
System Requirements:No special requirements.
