  1. Flo, the TAO disc *can* be read, but only on some drives, while the DAO discs that CDBurnerXP used to produce had maximum compatibility (they were readable even with older drives). This is the crux of the problem. I used to think TAO/DAO doesn't matter, until I tried to mount one of the TAO DVD's on an older machine. I have temporarily swtiched to creating ISO images in CDBurnerXP and burning them with ImgBurn, which supports DAO properly (but has an extremely poor UI, especially as concerns the Options dialog -- advanced settings are mixed with every-day options). There are other pieces of
  2. Well, since older versions (as well as other programs) used to work, there has to be some problem somewhere. I found out that if I start CDBurnerXP with no disk in the drive, it will let me choose DAO. Then I can insert the blank and start burning. But, alas, the process fails immediately with an error dialog. I cannot read the "Burn progress" tab because as soon as I OK the error dialog, the program exits completely (again, a poor UI decision I reckon) . Has the actual burning code changed at some point (i.e. are different commands sent to the drive)? I find this bug puzzling. I would h
  3. Except the drive actually supports DAO (as all modern internal laptop DVDs do). I can burn DAO in Linux (cdrecord), under BurnAware Free, under ImgBurn, and I could do so even under older versions of CDBurnerXP. Yet the new CDBurnerXP "cleverly" determines that the drive only burns TAO. I was trying to burn an ISO image onto a blank DVD-R -- no fancy scenarios. Finalizing the disk unfortunately makes things even worse (I was getting read errors before, now I can't mount the DVD at all). If mode detection is faulty / immature, perhaps adding a check box to "ignore auto-detected modes"
  4. For a long time, CDBurnerXP used to include radio buttons to select between DAO and TAO in the burn dialog. After upgrading a week or so ago, I get instead a drop-down box with a single item - Track at Once! I unfortunately fell for it and burned a couple of DVDs in TAO mode, thinking it's no big deal, and now of course I can't read them on of the DVD drives I use. Why could this happen? Is there a way to bring back sanity and get rid of this craptastic TAO-only "feature"? I pretty much cannot use CDBurnerXP any more. I've tried out imgburn, but that particular piece of basket-case
