It has been a while since the initial release, but hopefully you'll see this update has been worth the wait!

Highlights for this release include:

Image Queuing
Verify Mode
Discovery Mode
IBG Files / Write Speed Graphs (in partnership with the excellent DVDInfoPro)

For a full list of all the new features, please take a look at the changelog.

Whilst it appears half the world knew about DVD Decrypter, ImgBurn is still relatively unknown.
If you like what you see, please do recommend it to your friends and family. As it's 100% free, there really is nothing to lose!

If everyone who likes my program donates $2 (or whatever they can afford), I'll be able get more drives working, test with more types of media and add more exciting new features!

Go on people.... Click the 'Donate' button

Oh and on the subject of testing with more types of media, BIG thanks to SVP Communications for helping to make this release possible.

--------------------------------------------------------------

As a side note, and on the subject of Layer Jump Recording, I have 2 drives that seem to support it.

BenQ 1640 and Pioneer 110.

Both are running latest firmware (BSMB and 1.37) but neither of them burn as expected.

The BenQ seems to totally ignore my LBA for 'Shifted Middle Area Start Address' and 'Manual Layer Jump Address' - although the commands I send ARE accepted.

The Pioneer accepts the addresses the BenQ ignores but then errors out as soon as it starts to burn L1 with the error 'Invalid Address For Write'.

I'm sure basic (DAO style) LJR shouldn't be THIS difficult to get working! DVD-R DL media is very expensive and I can't afford to mess around!

Of course I did
These is one of the "daily tools" I use, so I don't want it to go away

What makes this tool better than, for example, Nero?

Hi Luis,
Nero is simply bloated.
I remember long time ago using Nero and it was simply an amazing tool because it had a great burning engine (core) and because it was kept easy and simple.
Nowadays Nero is loosing popularity among those that care to make real-life tests with it.
A recent article found on the internet made a simple comparison between Nero, DVDDecrypter "burning engine" (a.k.a. ImgBurn) and another piece of software (maybe ImgTool Burn).
The winner was DVDDecrypter.
They used software tools to measure the amount of burning "errors" burnt on the DVDs, the burning speed, etc.
So, I'll keep using DVDDecrypter "burning engine", that is ImgBurn , because it's easy, fast, accurate and cheap .
And for mastering general purpose data DVDs, I'll keep on using Nero or whatever other tool available.
There is a freeware tool that is slick and does the job.
The name is burn-at-once but it has been discontinued...
But even without any updates it has always worked fine with me.
For audio CDs I use Burrrn, another free and slick tool that has never let me down.
You know I hate software that eats memory even though I have a 1Gig RAM and Nero is simply one of those hungry tools...
Cheers

Hello everyone

What are you using to CREATE an ISO image (that will be burnt with IMGBURN) ? By creating an ISO, I mean, both ways: FROM a DVD to HD, and FROM a FOLDER to HD.

FROM FOLDER to HD I fond this one(freeware that uses MKISOFTS):

FOLDER2ISO

thanks

best regards

Hi Sparkster,
I don't know if I catch the DVD to HD and FOLDER to HD.
Do you mean DVD to HD and HD to ISO/DVD?
If that's the case:
DVD to HD - DVDFab Decrypter 2.9.6.2 Free
HD to ISO - ImgTool Classic 0.91.6 (just browse until you find the classic version )
ISO to DVD - ImgBurn 1.1.0.0
Well, as a matter of fact I still haven't used ImgBurn 1.1.0.0.
I have been using ImgBurn 1.0.0.0 with very good results, though.
Oh, one more thing.
ImgTool Classic is actually an MKISOFTS frontend just as FolderToISO.
But if you combine ImgTool Classic with ImgBurn you can actually do HD to DVD without having to do HD to ISO and ISO to DVD.
That's because ImgTool Classic has a feature that enables the ISO to be recorded using DVDDecrypter.exe.
Since ImgBurn.exe is actually DVDDecrypter's burning engine, ImgTool Classic can act as an ImgBurn frontend as well.
Hope I did understand what you meant to ask .
Cheers

-Can process the compact disc boot information, you can directly add/remove/extract boot image of the ISO image.
-Supports nearly all known CD/DVD image file formats (.ISO, .BIN, .IMG, .CIF, .NRG, .BWI and so on) , and converts them to the standard ISO form image.
-May directly set the file/folder to hidden attribute
-Supports ISO 9660 Level1/2/3 and Joliet extension
-Automatically optimizes the ISO image file structure, saves the disc space.
-Supports the shell document type integration, Open Image files through double clicking them or the Right Click menu of the mouse with the open dialog.
-The double window user interface is extremely convenient to use.
-There are rich add-on tools, you can create ALL in 1 bootable compact discs, CD/DVD image file management, even the virtual CD/DVD drive , those functions are really powerful.
Do you undestand now what I am talking about ?

Hi sparskter ,
Nice avatar .
Sorry but I still don't see "where you're going".
I have only used UltraISO once or twice and that was to include some last minute files that I had forgotten in a ISO file.
And I did it because the project was not a critical one.
Be advised that UltraISO uses technology that can't be prooved to be trust worthy because the ISO format lacks a lot of documentation.
I wouldn't use UltraISO on all my DVD projects because of that.
The authors of the tool even advise you of that.
Nevertheless I don't see why you brought UltraISO to the talking.
I'm affraid you'll have to be more verbouse with me .
Cheers

I just would like to know alternatives to it! If possible, freeware ones! As far I know, there is only MKISOFTS at top of that!

IMGBURN is a very good burner, right ? But still it is an ISO (image) burner. No image, no burn And I really would like to use it to burn my documents, my video clips (.mov) converting them to ISO and then burn them using IMGBURN (and not just use PGCEDIT to creates DVD VIDEO ISO files after authoring them). But to perform that, I need to create an ISO image first.

Oh, now I see...
You'd like to be able to use ImgBurn to burn every DVD wether it's data/audio/video.
Well, then I really don't know what tool you can use .
In fact UltraISO is the only tool I know that can do that.
Well, almost every burning software nowadays can be set to create an ISO instead of burning.
Even burn-at-once freeware can create ISOs since it comes bundled with MKISOFTS.
So you can take one of those burning software, load your files on it, ask for an ISO and burn with ImgBurn.
Would that be what you're looking for?
Cheers

Imgtool classic does an ISO and needs something else to burn it. I use it with DVDDecrypter (that it can call automatically).

Errmm, not meaning to say you're nut or anything Phil but even yesterday I burnt an ISO with ImgBurn.
Some people even think it only works with ISOs but that's not right, it's already compliant with Alcohol MDS, CCD, etc...
Cheers

I guess the program is only for burning, not for creating an iso file.
