  • Selecting the correct write speed in ImgBurn

    I downloaded and installed ImgBurn to work with DVDFab. I made all the selections to include setting the MID (Media ID) of the blank discs I use. However, when I started the backup process of a DVD, I got a message indicating 'Write Speed Miscompare' in the ImgBurn log'. It stated 'wanted 2.4X and got 2.0X'. I am not sure how this happened since I selected the write speed based on the MID (media ID) and the burning capacity speed which was indicated when I inserted the DVD. Note: in the settings in ImgBurn (after it identifies the MID based on the inserted DVD), you have to either leave the write speed on MAX (there is no AUTO mode selection here.......just MAX or a specific write speed must be selected? Any thoughts on why I got the 'Write Speed Miscompare" in the ImgBurn log? How could this happen when I chose the 2.4X based on the information that popped up about my DVD after the system recognized the MID (Medial ID)? Will the program autocorrect itself and go down to 2.0X versus 2.4X? I have a burn in process at the moment so I don't want to mess with any settings right now. The log in process is below. Thanks for any feedback.

    Did it finish the burn and is it playable?

      I had that happen with a DVD-RW I tried to burn at 2.4x and no idea why that happened but if you using Verbatim DL you can burn them at 4x or even 6x and still get excellent burns with them as I burn all my verbatim DL at 6x and they never failed me

        Yes, the burn finished successfully. I haven't had time to play all of the movie. However, from the little bit that I have reviewed, it seems to be fine. Follow-up questions since I had this error with my Verbatim DVD+R DL media. Should I just reset the speed at 2.0? What if I set it to MAX speed? Is MAX safe as far as allowing a good burn? In other words, does MAX just default to the optimum burn speed based on the MID (media ID)? Again, there's no AUTO setting once you save your MID. You have to pick MAX or a specific speed. Thanks again for replies.

          Is this what you are doing with Imgburn? http://forum.imgburn.com/index.php?showtopic=4249

          Edit:
          I believe your drive is the same as a Samsung 163A. Was searching awhile ago for write speeds for your drive earlier. This is the thread i was looking at http://club.cdfreaks.com/f105/toshib...6/#post1580446

            from reading similar threads at the ImgBurn forum, i believe its a bug in your drives firmware. however this maybe over come using the previous version of ImgBurn. Lightning UK! is aware of the problem and im sure it will be addressed in future release.

            here is ImgBurn 2.4.4.0

              I remember an issue with an older Samsung drive that was a "lead in" issue but i don't remember what exact drive and/or if it was for single layer or double layer discs or if it was only for -R's or +R's.

                You can select 52x or whatever and you will still find that it burns at 2.4x.

                Using the older version will only make the warning disappear from the log, but the burn will still be carried out at 2.4x.

                      Thanks for the posts as well as that informative link. Actually, I guess I only see the 'AWS' setting when I insert a DVD versus 'Auto' because I had already previously selected a write speed for the specific media being inserted. I suppose that's how this works. Is that right?? I do know that when I insert the media that I use, I can view the Disc ID in ImgBurn and it shows the MID along with the write speed that I chose to save.

                      Update here, when I changed the write speed from 2.4 (which is what was listed under the supported write speed for my DVD) to 2.0 speed, the error message I previously described in the log went away on the next burn.

                      I don't know much about my dvd burner. It came with my 2 1/2 year old Dell. It does seem odd that it would only support this lower speed burn. However, I am wondering if that has to do with the fact that it is double layer DVD? I've been using Verbatim DVD+R DL. Maybe when I purchase another type of media (and insert it), I will be afforded a higher write speed?

                      In any case, I I'd rather burn at a lower speed to ensure a good backup versus trying to burn it quickly and get a poor backup (and don't like seeing those error messages in the log).
