I’ve been using DVDFab for years and only recently have I experienced this problem (perhaps as the result of a Windows 7 upgrade). I am running Windows 7 x64 Home Premium and DVDFab 220.127.116.11 and the 18.104.22.168 beta.
Layer sizes are incorrect for every dual layer disc I try, resulting in incorrect .ini files being written.
The number of sectors are unusually high (or even negative) and both layers are always reported as being equally sized. For example:
Info for drive [H:\] (DVDFab 22.214.171.124) Drive region: 1 Disc type: Video DVD Disc region: 1 Volume name: FELLOWSHIP Video standard: NTSC Layer 0 size: 261889793 sectors (511503 MBytes) Layer 1 size: 261889793 sectors (511503 MBytes) --- The correct layer size (from ImgBurn) is: --- Layer Information: Layer 0 Sectors: 2,071,568 (54.18%) Layer 1 Sectors: 1,752,148 (45.82%) --- Here's the DVDFab layer info for another disc, which shows the negative layer size issue: --- Info for drive [H:\] (DVDFab 126.96.36.199) Drive region: 1 Disc type: Video DVD Disc region: 1 Volume name: 1000092476 Video standard: NTSC Layer 0 size: -276488703 sectors (7848591 MBytes) Layer 1 size: -276488703 sectors (7848591 MBytes) --- In such a case, the .ini file looks like this: --- [ISO] Files=1000092476.iso LayerBreak=-276488703
Some dual layer discs I’ve tried are even being detected as single layer discs with no layer break!
While I can find out the actual layer breaks using ImgBurn and then manually correct every .ini file myself, this takes a lot of extra and unnecessary time to do for every disc I’m ripping (I purchased DVDFab Lifetime specifically for its convenient Clone feature).
Since I know this feature was working before, it’s clear that a software bug has recently been introduced into DVDFab (due to Windows 7 perhaps?).
Is anyone else experiencing something similar? Are the software developers aware of this issue and planning to address it in a software update?
Thanks in advance!
