  1. Hi, Just a brief note to Thank you for updating the File System Help page. <http://cdburnerxp.se/help/Appendices/filesystem> I'll have to do some more reading of the Help pages, as maybe even more good info has been added. Best.
  2. Thank you for trying. FYI, over last few weeks, months, I have updated CDBurnerXP several times as updates have become available, and also done general MS Windows updates and various other PC cleaning things, and have not had any of those mysterious crashes in a while. So things seem to be good on that count now. Currently at v4.2.6.1706.
  3. I have been using CDBurnerXP for a while, and appreciate its flexibility and the useful information it provides about the disk burning choices. Recently, I have noticed that some of the data dvd disks I have made are not always readable on my daughter's iMac OS X Tiger computer. (Unfortunately, it seems sporadic... worst kind of issue to troubleshoot ) But when I create them - always with data verification, and re-read them on the PC they seem fine. Usually Verbatim brand DVD-R. So I have done some research and while some web forums suggest resetting things on the Mac (which I plan to do and test) some other sites suggest it might be the UDF file system version that may play a role. In the burn selections, I have usually been choosing the "ISO9660/UDF/Joliet" file system format option. But I cannot find a definitive on what version of UDF is used. In looking at online help (which is generally very good here - thx) It states that "UDF (Universal Disk Format): The newest file system format available which continues to be updated. While DVD-Video media use UDF version 1.02, Blu-ray media use UDF 2.50 or UDF 2.60. CDBurnerXP will use version 1.02 for CDs as well." But does not say what version for data dvd disks (DVD Data, not DVD-Video) created from the Data Compilation mode. So I am guessing it is UDF 1.02, but I want to confirm the actual version used to help reduce the unknowns in my troubleshooting. FYI, my PC system is: Windows XP Pro SP3, Sony Vaio RS530G minitower, 2 GB RAM, various versions of CDBurnerXP from (past older), .1430, updated to, .1541, updated to, .1706, and now I am onto latest today (OK, so I'm frequently updating... I now use Verbatim DVD-R disks almost exclusively, (silver color, Verbatim branded) since they have seemed, for me, to produce fewest errors or 'coasters'), with CDBurnerXP Verify after write ON. (the Mac is iMac G4 OS X Tiger 10.4.11) Thank you.
  4. HI, (my first post here...) I experienced a sudden crash/quit/abort/dissapearance of CDBurner XP v while I was preparing data for a DVD-r data disk burn. Running Windows XP Pro SP3, 2.5 GB RAM, Sony Vaio RS530G minitower, up-to-date with MS patches (as per MS and Belarc) CDBurner XP Pro v4.2.4.1351 Details: I ran CDBurnerXP and dragged a bunch of AVI files in, preparing to burn the first of two DVD-R discs. Gave disk a name (15 characters about). Also dragged in two small (less than 4MB ea) folders in to the disk burn image area. Total est space in use would have been about 3.8GB. Had not finished setting it up... noticed that one of the folders has a wrong name, I change the name on the item list inside CDBurnerXP lower pane. Then I think, maybe I should change it on the source HD folder, since I will be using that again for a second DVD-R disk. I change the folder name on the source folder (on the HD), and planned to go back to CDBurnerXP and drag out/delete the older (renamed) folder from burn prep list, and then re-drag in the newly renamed folder from HD source. But when I click on the CDBurnerXP prep area list of that one folder, CDBurnerXP Crashed/Aborted -- by that I mean, it totally disappeared from the screen, no more CDBurnerXP in the Taskbar either. I brought up Task Manager, no CDBurnerXP in the list of active tasks (about 38 total tasks active, fyi). I checked system event viewer, no crash log or notice. just a few non-interesting 'imapi cd-burning com service entered running state, ... entered stopped state' at around the same general time, though they were only informational, not warning, not error. I guess I should have dragged the folder out of CDBurnerXP before I renamed it on the HD. But I wasn't sure that such would be an absolute necessity. Note that I have successfully used CDBurnerXP to burn a number of CDR and DVDR previously, both this 4.2.4 version and earlier versions. Anything else that would be helpful? I restarted my PC, ran my usual cleanup routines (ccleaner, jkdefrag, MS checkdisk), and am giving it another go, this time with folder names set RIGHT before I drag in Best,
