I/O




  • Interface

    You can select how ImgBurn accesses your DVD drive.

    • ASPI - WNASPI32.DLL

      Neros ASPI.

      ASPI - Advanced SCSI Programming Interface, a method that some programs use to access data on drives. Although designed for SCSI drives, it is actually required for non-SCSI devices too, so Force ASPI is sometimes required. Useful for accurate DVD and CD ripping.

    • ASAPI - ASAPI.DLL

      The VOB ASAPI layer is an advanced ASPI programming interface. Both IDE and SCSI devices can be used. It is supposed to be 10-15% quicker than normal ASPI layers.

    • SPTI - Microsoft

      The default SPTI works if you have an Microsoft NT based operating system (Windows NT, Windows 2000, Windows XP and Windows Server 2003), and does not require any special drivers. All other options require special drivers that you first have to download and install.

      ASPI is mainly for compatibility with Windows 98/Me.

    • ElbyCDIO - Elaborate Bytes AG

      Eloborate Bytes AGs version of an ASPI layer.

    • Patin-Couffin - VSO Software

      Patin-Couffin access layer device I/O interface.

  • SPTI - Use 'CdRom' Class

    This is how ImgBurn talks to your drives. The common method is to open them using the path '\\.\CdRomX' - where X is some number. That's the 'Cdrom' class. The alternative is via their drive letter using the path '\\.\X:\' where X is the drive letter. That was mainly added for linux users who use the program via Wine.

    The default setting is 'enabled'.

  • Show All Devices

    If this is set to 'disabled' - the program will only show you DVD compliant devices.

    The default setting is 'disabled'.

  • Transfer Length

    You can here set the amount of KB that the program should read each time in the reading cycle.

    • Automatic

    • Manual

      You can select either 32 KB or 64 KB.

  • Buffer Size

    This buffer will be used to temporarily store the data that is being read from the DVD before it is being processed and then written to your hard disk.

  • Software Write Error Retries:

    When you burn a disc the program will retry to write that sector as many times as you has set it to do until ImgBurn gives up.

    It can be set to a digit between 0 and 20.

    The default setting is '20'.

Device




  • Options

    • Lock Tray During...

      If you lock the tray - it will prevent you from accidentally ejecting a DVD that you are currently erasing or writing a DVD.

      • Read

        If enabled the program will lock the tray during a read operation.

        The default setting is 'enabled'.

      • Write

        If enabled the program will lock the tray during a write operation.

        The default setting is 'enabled'.

      • Verify

        If enabled the program will lock the tray during a verify operation.

        The default setting is 'enabled'.

      • Erase

        If enabled the program will lock the tray during an erase operation.

        The default setting is 'enabled'.

    • Eject Tray After...

      You can set as an option that the tray is automatically ejected upon completing of the writing or erasing process.


      • Read

        If enabled the program will eject the tray after a read operation.

        The default setting is 'disabled'.

      • Write

        If enabled the program will eject the tray after a write operation.

        The default setting is 'disabled'.

      • Verify

        If enabled the program will eject the tray after a verify operation.

        The default setting is 'disabled'.

      • Erase

        If enabled the program will eject the tray after an erase operation.

        The default setting is 'disabled'.

    • Disable Media Change Notification

      If enabled it stops the entire OS from knowing a disc has been inserted - only affects the currently selected drive. Useful for discs with 'Autorun' content and where a player would jump in and try to play the disc as ImgBurn is trying to initialise it.

      The default setting is 'enabled'.

  • Sort By

    This indicates how ImgBurn sorts the list of drives (in case you have multiple drives).

    • None
    • Address
    • Drive Letter
    • Name

  • Operating System Options

    • Auto Insert Notification

      This is nothing to do with ImgBurn really, it's a global OS thing. The OS defaults to having it enabled. When it's disabled, no drives will autorun stuff when you insert a disc - regardless of if ImgBurn is loaded or not.

      The default setting is 'enabled'.

    • Play Data Discs Automatically



      The default setting is 'enabled'.

    • Play Audio Discs Automatically



      The default setting is 'enabled'.

  • Synchonise Selection



    The default setting is 'enabled'.
