Burning Application- ImgBurn

ImgBurn is a lightweight CD / DVD / HD DVD / Blu-ray burning application that everyone should have in their toolkit!

It has several 'Modes', each one for performing a different task:

Read - Read a disc to an image file
Build - Create an image file from files on your computer or network - or you can write the files directly to a disc
Write - Write an image file to a disc
Verify - Check a disc is 100% readable. Optionally, you can also have ImgBurn compare it against a given image file to ensure the actual data is correct
Discovery - Put your drive / media to the test! Used in combination with DVDInfoPro, you can check the quality of the burns your drive is producing. [DVDINFOPro™ is a DVD information program written in Visual C++ for Windows 2000, XP, Vista, Windows 7 and later. ] DVDInfoPro by Nic Wilson Full Version and 14 Day Trial is a tool available for reading the (complete) media code from a media. The other (complete) media code reader is DVDIdentifier by Kris Schoofs (freeware).

ImgBurn supports a wide range of image file formats - including BIN, CUE, DI, DVD, GI, IMG, ISO, MDS, NRG and PDI.

It's 100% FREE ;-) Download at The Official ImgBurn Website.

Useful suggestions:
1)To vary File Name Length on output
At ImgBurn interface go to "Write files/folders to disc" \ Advanced \ Restrictions \ a)In ISO9660 folder/file name length select your choice from Level 1 - Level 3; b) In UDF DVD Video select "Allow Unicode Volume Label" for east asian texts.

2) To allow the disc for adding more data on subsequent burning sessions or to finalize disc
Go to Tools\Settings- Under Write tab Ticj to finalize and untick to enable more data to be added later.

The most common cause of slow reads/writes:=DMA not enabled on the drive / IDE
channel. To check your DMA settings, go into Device Manager and look in the IDE Controllers branch. If you bring up the properties box on each of the channels (Primary and Secondary) you should see a tab where it lets you change between PIO and DMA mode. This applies to Windows 2000, XP etc. On a Windows 9x machine, you'll need to look at the properties for the drive itself under the 'CDROM Drives' branch. You should see a 'DMA' checkbox in there somewhere! See article at Windows XP will often get confused and report that a drive IS running in DMA mode when in reality, it's not. To fix this, Uninstall the IDE/ATA Controller (NOT the Channels!!!) from under the IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers branch (again in Device Manager) and reboot your PC. Windows will 'find' it again when it boots back up. DMA will be enabled by default. You should also check that DMA is enabled and active within the system BIOS screen. That's the screen you access by pressing DEL, F2 etc when the machine first boots up. You normally have to enable it for each device connected to the IDE bus - it's not a single setting to enable / disable it.
Setting it to 'Auto' is the best bet - rather than DMA 5, 4... 1, PIO 4, 3...1 etc.
