if you use the newest version of imgburn , you can verify the contents of the disc against the iso you have just burned from.
personally i verify everything i burn as it only takes 5 minutes, then i know i can play it in my standalone

Writing a DVD is risky - we have all seen how many coasters have been produced. Sometimes, when a burn is reported as successful, it really is not.

Verify your burns!

You want all your time spent on getting the project to the burn stage to go to waste???

Regards

Well its used to check if your burn has been done properly after comparing it with the source, but wait.........................on a practical note.....

- if you have burned onto a DVD-RW, you might as well play it and see..... erase and Write again, incase of a problem.

- If you have burned a DVD-R and if it doesnt play well, its a coaster...period...you cant rectify it or undo what is a coaster now!!!.

Vefiying does not tell you the cause of the problem.........therefore personally I dont verify any of my burns.

Yeah, I wouldn't verify anything on an RW (except my weekly system backup, which is kept on 2 RWs alternating by weeks). I mean, why bother?

As for an R, that's a different story.

sorry blu- i was referring to a new feature

choose mode->verify



you will see the icons change from disc to hdd , navigate to the folder the iso came from and press the big button .
this can be done at any time after , as long as you still have the iso on your hdd

This thread has taken on a more ImgBurn quality, so I have moved it here.

I cant remember the last time I verified a write, I see the point as soup said on a RW but on a -/+R I dont see it....

I got 2 coasters in 3 years and hundreds of burns... In fact I remember a topic long time back were cynthia (I think) mentioned that by one of my logs the burns were unplayable... (that was with a Sony DWU10A)

The burns play fine and have always played on all standalones...

I guess my point is... With a failure ratio like that the proof is in the pudding...

My OS backups/increments are performed and verified but thats a whole different pudding all together since I keep them in a network drive (I use Acronis True Image 8 build 937).

So about imgburn I have little to put forward since I used it twice and twice I got a great result...
