Ask a question and give support. Imgburn, being the ever-so-honest software, asks the burner to reserve a track of a size greater than allowed up-front pre-burn, and the burner denies this request thus making overburning impossible through this route.

One Response to Tech Flashback: Owing to the presence of error correction data within the recorded data, a simple read-back verify would succeed as long as sufficient data remained readable to recover the original data post-error-correction. These are from my friend who built my PC.

I was intrigued by it, hence my posting about it. These pushed the standards somewhat in regards to the pitch of the groove, allowing more data to squeeze into the same radius.

It does go without saying that in this case, being able to overburn this much also means handling overburning of regular 80 minute CD-Rs quite well. However, many of them were not particularly reliable, partly owing to their mostly CAV characteristics, which show increased error rates towards the outside edge not due to recording issues but possibly mechanical ones.


Yes, my password is: The 7 64bit install no service pack should be 3.

To that end, normally such information can only be garnered through the use of expensive disc analyzers such as CATS. There should be no POFs, else unreadable data is quite likely.

I’ve only seen 4. Another frequent cause of issues is the lead-in of the disc uses the same addresses as used by the recorded data. It was an unexpected result, as contemporary drives in dvs era would often have problems maintaining high read speeds as they struggled to cope with the marginal disc that was just out of spec.

Ds a result, I also beta-tested ImgBurn version 1. I suppose this write-up is my way of thanking the drive for years of trouble-free service. Such long simulated capacities are nice, but can it actually be achieved?

In the below set of four images, I scanned four different types of blank CD-R one of the Plasmon discs is a mis-identified Ritek recorded by a slimline DVD recorder at 24x. Which looks like your drive will support also. I decided to write a 99 minute 00 second 00 frame disc, as in my experience, getting too close to the simulated value will cause issues.


The disc quality is not too bad according to the DW — a bit poor on the inside ring, but otherwise quite decent. The description of the optical drive from Speccy can be found in the attachment.

But what I do know is bebq the data is thereand the laser pick-up can reach it as the quality scans show. However, when attempting to burn, we find that burns proceed to writing all the data and then fail. Join the community here. You must log in or sign up to reply here.

Sense key not important: The quality scan features reported PIFs as sum8-values rather than sum1, thus could not be directly compared with the LiteOn or ECMA standard guidelines, although different drives did always vary with their opinions of the quality of discs.

I currently have a 32 bit.

There were other drives, including some combo drives and readers which had scanning ability. It was then discovered that other drives with other chipsets also had this ability to differing degrees, including the BenQ DW Do you already have an account?
