Burn Disc Image options
Note: Not all options are available for all drives or operating systems.
General Copy
n Verify copied data discs (slower) — A check mark in this box adds a verification step to ensure no errors occurred as your discs were copied. When copying Mixed Mode and CD Extra discs, the data portions of those discs are verified when this option is selected. Blu-ray Discs will be verified even if this option is turned off. Verification will be performed by the drive, which may take longer than verification performed by our software.
What is a CD Extra disc? CD Extra is a format that contains both audio and data, with the audio stored in the first session. Computers read the data portion of the disc. Audio CD players play the audio tracks and ignore the data.
What is a Mixed Mode disc? Mixed Mode is similar to CD Extra, but the data is stored on the first session. Older audio CD players will attempt to play this session, resulting in a loud noise that can damage your speakers.
n Stage to hard drive for better quality (slower) — When this option is selected, your Copy Disc projects will always be staged to your hard drive before burning them to a disc. Staging the project can reduce the chance of a burn failure with some drives.
n Disable system autorun — The Windows autorun feature can be an annoyance. Select this option to disable autorun when using this application.
n Acoustic alert after burning — A bell tone alerts you when a disc is finished burning by selecting this option.
n Recording memory cache — The default is 4.7 MB. In most cases, you do not need to change this setting. Increasing the cache can help prevent underrun problems on computers with 512 MB or more of RAM.
n Select drive speed — Depending on your system, one or more drop-down lists allow you to manually set the recording speed for your recordings. The available speed settings are based on the information reported by your recorder drives.
By default, your recordings will be burned at the maximum speed available for your combination of drive and media. If you experience errors during recording, try reducing the maximum recorder speed.
