What is DVDFab's default burn engine?

What is the default print engine used by DVDFab5 Plat when it is first installed on a PC?

I “mucked up” my settings by naming Nero as the burn engine of choice :frowning:

Last night I downloaded and installed ImgBurn but unfortunately that is producing failed to write sectors by the score :frowning:

As an interim measure, I have reverted back to 1Click DVD Copy Pro in the hope that I can burn a DVD.

The default burn engine is [B]VSO[/B].
I doubt Img is at fault here, but tough to tell specifics from [I]failed to write[/I].

Anyway, hope this helps.

Thanks :slight_smile:

When I an using Fab5, should the ImgBurn programme/window pop-up just as the burn process is about to start, or should it remain hidden - ie just work behind the scenes?

Have I missed a setting somewhere along the way? :frowning:

As the copy I ran using 1CDCP worked fine, I am now attempting to copy the same DVD onto the same media using Fab5 and the VSO burn engine. I will report back soon :slight_smile:


#5

The Img window will pop up…this is normal behavior.
To provide a more seamless process, please make the following change in Img:

[B]tools > settings > build > don’t prompt image details[/B]

If you’re using Fab and burning to DL media, Img will prompt you for a layer break selection.


#6

The burn using the VSO burn engine didn’t work :frowning:

I am trying again after resetting/opting for the default settings.

If this fails, can I safely remove the Fab5 programme from my PC, and then reinstall it?

I am using a registered copy of the programme :slight_smile:

Yes, you can. Please be sure that the version you re-install is from the DVDFab.com site or this forum (wouldn’t want to see you download any nasties from another site).

There are specifics for how to remove and re-install the program posted in this forum. I’d give you a link if I could remember it, but I’m pretty sure [B]Maineman[/B] or [B]signals[/B] will jump in and be able to provide it.

A word of caution… the VSO engine has proven to be problematic for some users (I just used it prior to writing this post, and it worked flawlessly for me - Intel Duo Core 2 CPU on Windows XP Pro).

It might prove interesting if you could provide details as to how and where the Imgburn engine failed - it is an extremely reliable burner producing consistently good results.

Just because VSO is the default burner, doesn’t mean you are wedded to it.

Should ImgBurn run independently of Fab 5 or does it run with Fab5?

Because ImgBurn “spat the dummy”, so to speak, I manually ran ImgBurm using the Burn mode with the folder on my HDD where Fab5 had copied the DVD to as the source. Finally, success at last :slight_smile:

In the future, how do I copy and burn a DVD using ImgBurn just by starting Fab5? :frowning:

1Click DVD Copy Pro treats its copy/burn process as one step.


#9

I should have mentioned, that when I tried to copy/burn the DVD using ImgBurn, I was presented with a pop-up that said: “This disc is copy protected! Copyright Ptotection System Type: CSS/CPPM etc etc”

What use is a burn engine that baulks at protection?

I thought that Fab5 overcame all that, or am I missing something (yet again :slight_smile: )? :frowning:

Download it from here. You have the noncess version http://dvdfab.com/

I think I’m beginning to understand what you are doing… let me try to explain it this way…

DVDFab 5 will take a store-bought DVD, decrypt it, and write it to your hard drive, all by itself, with no burn engine at all, but it will not burn that file to a DVD.

Imgburn, VSO, Nero, or any other burn engine you wish to try will not, by themselves, decrypt a store-bought, and write it to a HD, but they will pick up where DVDfab left off.

They will take a file decrypted by a program like DVDFab, and transfer it to a blank DVD, suitable for playing in your computer or in a stand-alone player.

End result, both DVDFab and the burner of your choice will have to work together to do the job.

For convenience sake, DVDfab provides the hooks to allow you to choose from VSO, Imgburn, and Nero, to run the burning engine that satisfies you the most with its results. Within the DVDFab program, you can specify which one you want, and at the appropriate time, DVDFab will run that burner when the decryption is complete, to finish the burning job.

Basically, once you start the DVDFab program decrypting, except for changing the disks in the drive (if your source drive is the same as your target drive), the most you have to do is sit and watch.

I apologise if I sound like I’m talking down to you… from your posts, I got the impression that you seemed to think that if DVDFab didn’t work, all you had to do was install a burning engine, and that would do the job for you.

The two have to work together, each doing the job they’re programmed for at the appropriate time.

I hope this helps at least a little…

O’C

P.S. Once you have a burner set up and run DVDFab, it will seem like a seamless job that DVDFab is doing - the activation and operation of the burner will be transparent to the observer - in this case, you.

To disable the graphic display of Imgburn, if, in fact, that is your burn-engine-of-choice, and you don’t want to see it on screen as the job progresses, it can be disabled within Imgburn. Just run Imgburn by itself, and as a challenge to you, try tofigure out how to do it.

If you get really stuck, let us know, and we’ll tell you how, but you’ll learn more by doing it yourself.

O’C

Thanks for all your help and advice - it is very much appreciated.

Up until recently, Fab5 has worked perfectly for me. Yesterday, I decided for reasons best known to me (and I haven’t a clue why) to make Nero as my burn engine of choice.

That didn’t work, so I downloaded and installed ImgBurn - that didn’t/hasn’t worked either.

So in an attempt to ‘clean’ things up, I deleted Fab5 and reinstalled it again.

I have just tried to burn a DVD (the same one I was successful with earlier) and yet again, it failed at the ImgBurn stage :frowning:

I have saved the ImgBurn log file but don’t know how to post it here so that the experts can tell me what I am doing wrong.


#14

The DVD that I did burn using ImgBurn alone although having been announced as successful, does not play on my PC, laptop or 2 DVD players :frowning:


#15

Use the clean install located in StormJumpers signature in post #3. Do everything that is asked of you exactly as said. Then try again as ImgBurn should work

Before I follow SJ’s clean uninstal process, I believe 1 Click uses the VSO burn engine also :frowning:

As 1Click is my [B]only[/B] successfully working DVD burn programme at this stage, won’t deleting those folders affect the programme?

Not too sure as I also have 1 click and have not had a problem but then I never need to do a clean install as I never have problems with dvdfab. But from how it looks on the directions it does not remove the VSO it just removes dvdfab but you need to wait for SJ or another member who knows more about that than I do to say if it does or not.

OK I followed the instructions and tried to burn the same DVD :frowning:

The event log is thus:

23:25:29: Analyzing of DVD started
23:25:29: Analyzing of DVD completed successfully
23:25:29: Copy process started
23:47:07: Copy process completed successfully

23:48:56: Task_2 failed! Error=122
23:48:57: Process failed!

Frustration is setting in :frowning:

Unfortunately, I cannot find the meaning of the 122 Error code.

Could in be my DVD Writer?
