    Added: 'Explorer' style file manager pane to the top of the Disc Layout Editor window (can be disabled via a button on the existing toolbar).
    Added: New 7.95GB, 23.3GB and 46.6GB file splitting options so the individual image file parts can be archived on DVD+R DL, BD-R or BD-R DL media.
    Added: An option so the user can control whether or not the program will not halt logging after 'too many' (1000) messages.
    Added: Option in the settings to automatically make the Disc Layout Editor window 'stay on top' (joins the existing one for the Write Queue window).
    Added: The user can now decide if 'Reparse Point' (A.K.A 'Junction') files/folders are included when scanning for files/folder to add to the compilation.
    Added: Option to prevent the program from blocking AutoPlay when it receives the 'QueryCancelAutoPlay' message from the OS (probably only when it's in the foreground).
    Added: Support for detecting when the user might be attempting to build a DVD Audio disc.
    Added: Automatic change booktype support for the LiteOn drives using the NEC chipset ('iHASxxx Y' rather than 'iHASxxx A')
    Added: Added additional bits of information to the disc information panel on the right.
    Added: Support for a couple of other locations for the isolinux.bin file when trying to determine if it should automatically patch the boot-info-table.
    Added: When the program fails to create a directory for the destination file in Read/Build modes, it'll now mention the reason rather than just saying it couldn't do it.
    Added: Debug code for the functions that deal with the Taskbar's progress bar type feature under Windows 7.
    Added: 'Reset DMA' feature to the 'Tools' menu. It's just an internal version of the 'ResetDMA.vbs' script found on the Internet.
    Added: 'Reset Change Counter' option to the booktype feature for NEC drives. This resets the 'Changes Available' counter back to 500 and the booktype options to factory defaults.
    Added: Support for reading MCN and ISRC information via other (and more reliable, especially on LiteON drives - will they ever fix the firmware bug?!) means.
    Added: Support for reading ISRC information on some older devices that aren't quite as MCC standards compliant as was previously required.
    Added: Blu-ray disc information to the disc info panel on the right.
    Added: The 'N/A' text can now be translated.
    Added: The default 'UNDEFINED' volume label can now be translated.
    Added: Detection of/warning for HDD images without MBR - these cannot be used when making a bootable disc, the MBR must also be present.
    Added: New 'errorlevel' return codes for use with CLI. (4 = Build/Read/Write aborted, 5 = Verify aborted)
    Added: Support for the Acronova 'Nimbie' series of auto loaders.
    Added: A new log entry to show the effective write speed.
    Added: A workaround for buggy LG drive firmware (first noticed with my GGW-H20L@FW:YL05 - tried to contact LG twice but they ignored me) when issuing the 'GET PERFORMANCE' command with CD media in the drive.
    Added: You can now decide between single and multiple extents when allowing files that exceed 4GB in the ISO9660/Joliet file systems. (Single fakes the size to 4GB, Multiple allows for the full size but isn't compatible with all parsers)
    Added: Optional installation of the Ask.com toolbar within the installer as part of a new partnership.
    Added: Optional creation of desktop icons/shortcuts (web links) for free scans using Uniblue's DriverScanner, RegistryBooster and SpeedUpMyPC programs within the installer as part of an affiliate scheme.
    Added/Changed: Wipe out old 'HKEY_CURRENT_USER' file association stuff if HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE is writable.
    Changed: The installer now has a checkbox to reset the settings rather than using a message box.
    Changed: When adding a >4GB file in Build mode, the program now prevents ignoring the ISO9660 maximum file size if 'single extent' method is selected and the UDF file system isn't being included (i.e. you're left with no way to access the entire file).
    Changed: No longer using the TOC information for the disc layout when reading DVD/HD DVD/BD disc, the information reported by the 'Read Disc/Track Information' commands is used instead.
    Changed: Don't prompt for certain DVD Video related stuff if the VIDEO_TS folder is empty. (Gets around the double prompts when doing a homemade HD DVD Video disc with dummy/empty VIDEO_TS folder)
    Changed: The Device MD5 in Verify mode now includes zeroed data for session gaps (as already used in Read mode - thus hopefully making them report the same MD5 for a disc!).
    Changed: Tweak within the installer for the 'AllocateCDRoms' registry value on x64 OS's.
    Changed: The 'Disc ID' button in the AWS window is now disabled when there's no active drive.
    Changed: Moved the Yes/No/Cancel buttons on the 'Confirm Volume Label' form over to the right (same as the other forms now) which allows more room for the 'Auto Yes in X seconds' text on the left.
    Changed: Searching for 'Medium Changers' (and also 'Auto Loaders') is now its own function and gets logged independently from the normal SCSI/ATAPI device scan.
    Changed: Rewrote the code that sets the write speed so it now sets the speed and checks it against the selected speed properly before then trying fallback commands if there's a mismatch.
    Changed: Tweaked the way the program handles discs where (according to the TOC) track 1 starts in what should be the pregap (i.e. 00:00:00 - 00:01:74 (MM:SS:FF)).
    Changed: The 'Auto Yes in X seconds' text on the 'Create Volume Label' window is now translatable.
    Changed: Tweaked the SPTD warning to say 'Duplex Secure's SPTD driver can have a detrimental effect on drive performance.'.
    Changed/Fixed: The program wouldn't suggest a volume label when using Advanced Build mode unless a folder had been added to the compilation.
    Changed/Fixed: The 'New Project' option on the 'File' menu didn't clear the Disc Layout Editor window.
    Changed/Fixed: Tweaked the 'Stay On Top' code a bit so it behaves a little better.
    Changed/Fixed: Workaround for Windows 7 'Show Desktop' issue where restoring the application via the taskbar button could (randomly) leave the main window minimised and the log window hidden off the screen.
    Changed/Fixed: The NEC drive section of the booktype feature so you can adjust the temporary settings even when the initial query fails (assuming the v4 command set is supported by the drive).
    Changed/Fixed: Tweaked the way the initial folder for the open/save boxes is calculated.
    Changed/Fixed: (AGAIN!) The program would only use the layerbreak position in an IBB if the /CLOSE switch was issued via CLI, /CLOSESUCCESS wouldn't work (and it should have done).
    Changed/Fixed: The 'Eject' option is now persistent across queued burns.
    Changed/Fixed: Tweaked the way the program detects if a drive returns TOC info in BCD form or not (mainly an issue with really old/non compliant drives).
    Fixed: Bringing up the 'Cancel' box (and leaving it there) whilst the program was adding files to the DLE window or preparing the build would mean that the form you tried to cancel would stay on the screen even after the operation had actually completed.
    Fixed: (Again, I hope!) Not getting the 'TaskbarButtonCreated' message in Windows 7 and therefore not being able to do the fancy taskbar progress bar stuff.
    Fixed: Main form losing focus when switching to Build mode or between Standard and Advanced Input.
    Fixed: An issue with finding a layer break position when burning directly to DVD+R DL and the 'Double Layer' profile was set to 'DVD-R DL' on the 'Advanced' -> 'Media' tab (only visible when NOT burning direct to disc).
    Fixed: An issue with unicode file/folder names being converted for the ISO9660 file system. (The file extension could get messed up)
    Fxied: An issue when truncating ISO9660 file names (those with no extension anyway) when the option to allow names without extensions is enabled.
    Fixed: The AutoPlay handler for BD Burning wasn't working correctly.
    Fixed: You could right click the lower part of the column header of the listview control on the disc editor window and it would bring up a context menu as if you'd clicked the 1st item in the list.
    Fixed: Issue where cached information was being used for the 'Source' information in Read mode when going from a burnt disc to an empty one.
    Fixed: Filter driver file information was missing on x64 OS's.
    Fixed: Couldn't add 4GB+ padding to an image.
    Fixed: Problem when clearing the drop description in the 'DragLeave' event as part of a drag+drop operation.
    Fixed: Problem with the listview header within the Write Queue window if the handle ever gets recreated.
    Fixed: Certain fields that should have been present in the disc information panel on the right were missing for certain (multisession) discs.
    Fixed: Imagelist issue on the 'Disc Layout Editor' window that could result in a crash when closing the program.
    Fixed: Tweaked the parsing (and display) of track information for DVDs with open sessions.
    Fixed: Tweaked the parsing (and display) of the TOC for multisession DVDs.
    Fixed: UDF parsing code always used the first file set descriptor in the partition when looking for files (so files in a 2nd+ session were not seen).
    Fixed: The '/DEST' CLI parameter didn't work in Verify mode (used to specify the image file to compare the disc to).
    Fixed: The taskbar 'window preview' showed the log window under Windows 7 (no idea why, it just did!).
    Fixed: Shutdown/restart/logoff code running before the forms are destroyed (and the log is saved).
    Fixed: Random failure to load CCD files.
    Fixed: A bug (you'd never run into) when the program tries to create a folder where there wouldn't be room for an 8.3 format file name after it whilst still keeping under MAX_PATH in length.
    Fixed: Verify/Read speed linked to Write speed issue with AD-7240S drive (and possibly others?)
    Fixed: Bug within the installer for the 'AllocateCDRoms' registry value where the type was set to DWORD rather than a String like it should have been.
    Fixed: The README.TXT file in the fake ISO9660 FS on bootable UDF only discs was being recorded without an actual name.
    Fixed: An issue loading CCD/CUE files made by CloneCD where the first index didn't start at 00:00:00.

    Thank you for the heads up on this........great program! :)

    Watch out for the Ask.com junk, though, as it appears as if that stuff has been added to the install routine.

    I downloaded it shortly after I saw your post and, again, just a few minutes ago. Both downloads had the Ask.com junk.

    Not sure if I did something wrong or even could possibly have done so; all I did was select "Mirror 8 - Provided by ImgBurn", saved the file, and ran it.

    Oh dear Lord...yes it is...no it's not. Are you guys both 6 year olds? Zfactor, the reason why you are not experiencing and ask.com symptoms is because you probably installed ImgBurn using the options that are in your screenshot, meaning that Uniblue Desktop Icons is disabled.

    Utterly nonsensical and useless comment, not to mention unwarranted. This isn't some sort of juvenile argument; we are simply (and reasonably) making an attempt to determine the cause of an issue.
    Good thought but, if that were the case, I wouldn't have been presented with the Ask options **after** I unchecked the Uniblue options.

    All I can tell you is what I experienced when I installed it. Checking that option presented me with the ask.com stuff. If it bothers you that much then just use the portable version.

    fwiw, i ran the installer to update imgburn, and i remember it asked something about ask.com or ask toolbar at the end of the installation, which i declined. i use InCtrl5 (or other tools) to monitor all my installs so I checked the log for any ask.com or ask toolbar stuff and there was nothing.

    note: i exclude registry keys and temp file folders from my installation snapshots that always pickup some unimportant noise during any install, so it's possible i missed some temp reference of no consequence.

    It looks as though the superb IMGburn has sold itself down the river Zfactor,
    via those two on your list of Features.

    'New Partnership'.

    'Affiliate Scheme', charming, I shall use the previous version.

    u just uticked them this time around and still do not have them anywhere. not sure why you guys are getting registry keys for them if you didnt install them. i did use jv16 to search and it found nothing, i have looked for a half hour now and i can find no traces of ask anywhere on this system

    edit: it is possible because i did a upgrade install it may have installed differently?? though im not sure. im sure he will be hearing it from everyone about this.

    so for those who dont like this are there any other alternatives that are any where near as good or have as many options... i will not change myself but for the ones thinking about it this may be worth noting. ive tried everything out there and imgburn is just the best there is.

    also as i said and others are also saying on other forums they also have not had anything from ask or even the option to pick ask during the install. so its weird some are seeing it and others are not

    Many people using the portable version? What are its limitations and is an update planned soon for it too?

    thanks

    My firewall (comodo) gave a message that ask bar installer wanted to install.
    When you say no ... no installation of imgburn.

    When you say yes it installs the ask toolbar (I received a messages from my antivirus software that my browsers homepage is going to change.. do you accept?).
    If you say no, then you can untick the message in imgburn to install or not to install the toolbar.

    They do first install and then do an uninstall of the toolbar.

    I don't like this kind of rubbish and do not install imgburn anymore.
    Same for pdf.viewer (ask toolbar) and fox viewer (ask toolbar).

    I updated a second machine, and took a screenshot of the optional ask.com component (attached). i unselected all those options, and imgburn installed just fine without adding any ask.com file or registry entries (I used InCtrl5 to log the changes).

    This same issue just came up in a threaad about PDF-XChange Viewer or some other freeware. While these add-ons are annoying, I don't hold it against the developers as long as the add-ons are optional, do no harm, and can be easily removed.

    i installed it last nite, got installer from imgburn.com mirror

    on my home windows 7 enterprise machine, it didnt prompt or show anything about ASK toolbar, also is nothing installed nor in registry..

    however, the same installer file which i put onto my usb pen, i installed in work today on my desktop (xp pro) and it prompted about the ASK rubbish.

    (oh and both were updating current 2.5.0.0 installations)

    It's in all the installers, but seems to only get dropped depending on some system variables.

    ask.png

    As you can see all the stuff bundled with it takes up half the .exe so if your installer is ~4.3MB then Ask toolbar is bundled in it.
