  1. I used CDBXP to create an .ISO of a CD.

    Rather than an .ISO file, I have three files:

    1,064,960 photos-1.iso

    844,333,056 photos-1.mdf

    4,329 photos-1.mds

    Which is the file I need to create a new CD later? Clearly not the .ISO or the .MDS as they are too short.

    I always assumed that an iso file would have the extension .ISO.

    Do I keep the .MDF and delete the others?

  2. (I posted this in General Discussions without result). Trying here now ...

    Trying to burn in multi-session. Having just completed two previous multi-session runs successfully.

    o New blank Memorex DVD+R

    o Make one subdirectory on the DVD by copying+pasting a subdir from the HDD and renaming it

    o Renamed the DVD to something other than 'Disc'

    o Burn the compilation leaving the disc open

    o Writes the disc (apparently)

    o Take a CMD Dir of new DVD, nothing on the disc but the volume name, no subdir

    o Try to look at disc in File Commander, "Directory is corrupt/unreadable"

    o Do it all again on the same disc

    o Continue disc "Session could not be imported. Invalid UDF tag"

    o Carry on regardless, but again nothing is written. Discard the disc as unusable just like in my Nero days!!

    o What the hell is wrong? I seem to remember this happened once before, but I was able to write the directory at the second attempt.

    This is on the XP SP-2 machine.

    Regards

    It was in fact a USB problem.

    There is a device called a "Muzee App" which comes on a USB key and gives access to just about every radio station on the Net. This was preventing CDBXP launching on the Windows-7 machine as well as on another XP machine.

  5. I'm really surprised Avast was conflicting. Unless, that was caused by not disabling the program while CDBurnerXP was being installed. That could be the case because CDBurnerXP does require access to Windows itself to operate (like all burning programs) and Avast was slowing them down because they appear to be operating like a virus does.

    Avira performs all the features of Windows Defender so it isn't a big deal if it turns Defender off. You still have the same protection. Hopefully this is an end to the nightmare.

    Unfortunately it isn't. It's still taking up to 2.5 minutes to launch, so I'm now going to go down the USB road ...

    The security is now all MicroSoft.

  6. I hate to admit it, but with recent versions of Windows you can usually be completely happy with the built-in security features indeed. Do not turn off automatic Windows updates in particular.

    I had to to turn off the built-in security features, Avira install insists that Windows Defender is turned off.

    My final advice for performance. Since you use virtualization, check your bios to see if you have the option to allow the extensions in your processor to assist virtualization. It should be a simple yes/no option in the bios. My AMD is listed as: Allow AMD Virtualization - Yes/No .

    I've checked it. Virtualisation Technology is enabled.

  7. Having said that the slow launch of CDBXP was at an end, this morning it had reverted to its previous behaviour, taking 1 minute 33 seconds to launch. This is after quite a few days of normal behaviour.

    I'll now look into what may else may be conflicting with CDBXP other than the late departed Commodo. Unless anyone has any other ideas.

    It now looks like Avast was getting the way as well. I've taken Avast off and put Avira on, fingers crossed that this finally solves the problem.

  9. Did you at least try to disable "security"?

    Yes, it took 1 minute and 44 seconds to launch !

    It launches as a process but does not open on the desktop. The second and subsequent launches are OK however.

    It's being run as administrator. Could this have something to do with it?

    >This is not the usual behaviour - you might want to check using CDBurnerXP without AV applications or the like.

    Thank you, but not a lot of use if I have to run CDXP without security in place!

    [45 seconds to launch today].

    Nordland.
