    ImgBurn updated to v. 2.5.7.0

    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.

    I currently don't have any programs for burning CDs and DVDs as the last free one I used caused me lots of little problems and playback quality was poor. I removed all remnants of that proggy (a free one I don't remember the name of now) and am looking at other options for free DVD burning software.

    This proggy in this thread sounds interesting. Does anyone have any personal experience with this? Also, in the past, I've had very good luck with the stuff I DL from Majorgeeks (seems like less stuff is there to trick you into other stuff you don't want) and they have "FreeSoundRecorder" offered, but I have no experience with it at all. Does anyone happen to have any experience with that? I've saved a few pennies and can finally get a cheapo stack of DVD-r disks, and am going to have another go at dual booting Mint and XP with each on it's own drive. Job one for this software I end up with will be burning the .iso, probably for "Lisa" with gnome and no kde.

    A while back, Mr G turned me on to Smplayer, and I absolutely love it. If I could get myself a burning proggy that was as user friendly as Smplayer is, there'd be new joy in mudville. So for you folks that have already experimented with this sort of thing, are either of the choices listed here good for somebody as green at burning as I am? I'd obviously be interested in other options if they were better as well. Any advice would be greatly appreciated as this is all pretty new turf for me. Thanks

    Most people use ImgBurn or Infrarecorder, TS. Both really nice software.

    Thanks BH...I'm now leaning toward using Zammy's link here if Imgburn is good and not unusually complicated. I'm a little surprised at how many fixes and improvements are listed in this updated version, makes one wonder how the previous version worked. Have you any tips, hints, "be careful to/not to's". I'm a little worried about messing up current associations and especially defaults for currently installed proggies. The last free proggy I tried messed up my Smplayer somehow and made playback sound like poo. I should note that I have "Realtek HD Audio Manager" that came as an onboard feature of my mobo...just in case that matters. I did a set it and forget it when I set the system up, and except for that one time, it's always played friendly with the proggies I've got.

    So, all things considered, should I pull the trigger on this DL? It does sound like a good one, and you seem to know others who use it. (if offered, would I be better off doing a custom install?) TYVM, BTW

    Hey TS, here's an endorsement from someone who doesn't even use it.

    I have an old copy of Nero 7 that I think came with a burner I bought a long time ago. It's never failed me, so I've never had a reason to change. Plus I do very, very little burning of any type anymore. In fact about the only time I burn anything anymore is when I download a Linux ISO. So it's only images that I burn anyway. However I have tried ImgBurn and it works wonderfully. And I keep a copy of the installation file for most recent version just in case.

    Good thing about ImgBurn / Infrarecorder is they are both clean simple menu driven. Dead easy to go about simple tasks of burning an image or whatnot. I'd say infrarecorder is even easier to use because it opens up with a box with 6 (?) clear default options, click the one you want and away you go. Both really nice and now I'm wondering if it is ported for Linux.

    Thanks guys...I think I can go in town and get my disks, maybe tomorrow, and then see if I can get through the dual HDD install. I've read it through several times, so nothing left to do but try it. I think I'm going to try ImgBurn (though that simple 6 choice menu BH mentioned does sound appealing). I don't want to sound too numb here, but this proggy will also burn CDs, vids that I can watch on a TV, vids and sound to DVD, etc. won't it?

    Hey BH, are you sure about the 6 choices when you open Infrarecorder? I just checked out the site and the screen shot section shows this:

    ImgBurn opens with 6 choices though:

    Looks like that when you first open it then after you've clicked an option goes to what you got with appropriate options selected. They've both got standard options though where you don't have to do much work. I'd forgotten ImgBurn looked like that tho. lol.

    Ah, the interfaces look pretty similar.
