The Menus

4. Tools

  • ISO

    • Change Volume Label

      You can here change the Volume Label name of an image file.

      Now we want to open up our ISO file and change the Volume Label name. Select the imagefile you want to use by using the folder icon to be loaded into the program.

      Now you can change it to what you want. Then just press the button 'OK' and the name is changed.

    • Display IFO Layer Break Information...

      This will display the layer break information from a DL image.

  • Drive

    • Refresh

      Does a new initiation of the DVD and reads it once again. Just as you had inserted the DVD once again.

    • ReZero

      The REZERO UNIT command positions the laser head of the drive to the zero track (LBA 0) and basically reinitialises the drive.

      This command exists for command compatibility and it works on several drives.

    • Load

      Closes the device tray.

    • Eject

      Ejects the device tray.

    • Lock Tray

      Locks the device tray.

    • UnLock Tray

      Unlocks the device tray.

    • Set Read Speed

      This setting is not used by the program.

    • Erase Disc

      If you want to erase your RW disc - you can do it here.

      • Quick

        Does a quick erase of the disc.

      • Full

        Wipes out the whole disc. This takes longer time than the 'Quick' version above.

    • Synchronise Cache

      The command flushes the cached buffers to media which makes it possible to resume the data flow.

      Synchronise Cache is used after a failed burn (not needed if you burnt with ImgBurn because it performs that operation regardless). It basically tells the drive the Write operation has finished and that it's to finish writing everything in it's cache to the disc and basically clean up after itself.

    • Close

      If your burned disc have not been properly closed - you can do it here.

      • Track

        Closes the track.

      • Session

        Closes the session.

      • Disc

        Closes the whole disc.

    • Change Advanced Settings...

      Here you can change some settings if you have a BenQ, LiteOn or Plexter writer.

    • Change Book Type...

      If your drive supports book type/bit setting, remember to tell it to burn DVD +R/+RW discs as DVD-ROM. This will make them more compatible with players.

      You will see this menu after you have selected this option:

      Now select your brand of burner. In my example I select 'NEC'.

      You can now select the option you want to carry out.

    • Regional Code

      • Information

        This will show you the current Region Code settings for your device.

        If you should see this window - it will in most cases mean that your burner is flashed with regionfree firmware.

      • Change

        You can here change the current Region Code for your device.

        Just remember that you can only change this setting five times. The last Region Code you then set it to - will be to that one forever.

        If you should see this window - you can't change the region code because you have a regionfree firmware installed.

    • Capabilities

      This shows your selected devices capabilities.

    • Check For Firmware Updates...

      You need to be connected to internet in order for it to work. The program searches 'The Firmware page' and shows you available firmware updates for your selected device. It also shows you your current installed firmware version.

  • Create DVD MDS file...

    If your hard disk is not NTFS formatted you can't deal with ISO files over 4 GB in size. Your ISO file will have to be split to several ISOs. To create an index over those files - you can create a MDS file.

    Normally this should have been done automatically by the program while it saved your ISO creation.

  • Search for SCSI/ATAPI Devices

    Searches your computer for installed devices - such as CD/DVD burners and DVD-ROMs.

  • Settings...

    This will give you a menu of the different settings you can apply to the program.

    There are seven different tabs in this menu:

    • Defaults

      The default setting is showed in blue in this guide.

      If you have changed any settings and want to use the default ones. Simply press the 'Default' button. The program will ask you if you really want to reset the settings:

      If you press 'Yes, your changes will be reverted back to default.
