  2. Report files added to a compilation in the file browser

    Report in some way (with a different color, bold, italics, etc.) in the integrated file browser files already added to the compilation.
    Especially useful when creating CDs with MP3 files (to add new files to an old compilation easier).

  4. POSIX permission settings for UDF

    Would like the ability to edit POSIX permissions when creating a UDF disc. The ability to right click a file and "Set POSIX Permissions" in the compilation window would be ideal. A change in the default permissions or a way to change them would work for now. Currently, all files are created with 444 permissions (read). We compile discs for usage on Unix systems using your software and would like the ability to set certain files executable. An ability to set files to 555 (read/execute) or changing the default is needed. Thanks!

  5. Show more size info to facilitate fitting stuff in

    Show more size info to facilitate fitting stuff in
    Show sizes of:
    - folders in top pane
    - stuff selected in either pane

    Then there would be less "trying out" (adding, deleting) to see if it fits onto a CD or DVD.

    I suppose this could be an option so slower machines could have it turned off.

  6. Disc check function

    Include a disc check function to test source-data discs for errors, read speed, list file statistics, bad clusters, unreadable files, etc.

  7. Do not keep files open when adding them to the compilation to reduce resource usage

    As it stands right now, creating a compilation (naturally) opens every single file in the compilation, but also seems to keep them all open. This is a problem when the files live on a network share, because Windows-compatible network file systems like Samba have limits to the number of files that can be open at one time. When you hit this limit, the drive goes offline and has to be remounted.

    I suppose this is probably a performance optimization, but it is also a bug; it should at least be possible to disable it.

    This is an issue known for quite a while and doesn’t really belong here. However, StarBurn informed me that they are currently working on this, so I marked this as “started” now. ETA: A few weeks according to them. (Based on past experiences, rather expect a couple of months.)

  8. cd-text - ask before burning to add disc title/artis

    Please add option to "force" (a pop-up?) you to write disc titles to CDA-disc before burning. Always forgetting to add title, resulting black field on my cars cd-list...

  9. Unique Disk labels when using Disk Spanning

    When using disk spanning, automatically create a unique label for each disk. It should be meaningful. Maybe support a $disk variable (with 0 padding and auto sizing by number of disks) so the user can revert to the current method if preferred (by not using $disk) and can decide where to put the disk count in the created name (e.g., MyLabel or MyLabel_$disk or D$disk-MyLabel).

  10. Detect new devices without restarting.

    currently if a new device is plugged in (e.g. external CD burner) after CD burner starts it doesn't seem to detect it.
    for example,
    Click on Create ISO from opening option.
    Plug in external CD burner,
    Cancel options page,
    Open options page and under choose device the new device isn't there.
    On reopening th eoptions for burning page it should possibly do a check for a new device.
    While it isn't a biggie ti is annoying to have to restart CDBurnerXP in order to detect new devices.

  11. Allow for more customization when printing the cover. For instance music CD's I do not want to print a date always.

    It would be good to be able to turn off the date when printing the cover. Also being able to change the font to a different Windows TTF font would be nice.

  12. A command line option that limits the percentage of burn completed.

    A simple option that will limit the displayed percentage of completion to a single line with 5 values displayed: <newLine> 0% 25% 50% 75% 100% <newline>
    This will assist in applications and batch files that automate using the cmdline large number of disks.

  13. Stop adding files past disk size limit

    When adding many files/folders to the compilation, it makes no sense to have more files in the compilation than can fit on the disk. Stop adding files after the complication size exceeds the inserted disk size.
    It should be relatively easy to do. But will be a big help for me archiving photos.

  16. Add 'print tracklist' options for modifying the print layout

    I think there should be some additional options in the print tracklist option.. like editing what should be printed such as 'track names only' and orientation i.e. Landscape; portrait

  18. "Copy or grab disc" main menu option, should have "Verify" option

    My pc has 2 plextor drives.
    So i love to use the copy disc function, with a source disc in 1 drive and a blank destination disc in the other drive, at the same time.
    (but not in "on the fly" mode)

    Therefor, just like in nero 6.6, please make it able to run a verify after doin a cd or dvd copy.

    Thanks so much! (x3)
    Tim

  19. to compare the reported drive capabilities with values reported by ImgBurn

    * Vendor Specific Info (used for Firmware Date in my case)
    * Serial Number
    * Buffer Size
    * DVD-RW DL (read and write)
    * DVD+RW DL (read and write)
    * HD-DVD RAM (read and write)
    * BD-R XL (read and write)
    * BD-RE XL (read and write)
    * C2 Errors
    * CD Text
    * Layer Jump Rec.
    * Labelflash
    * LightScribe
    * Binding Nonce Generation
    * Bus Encryption Capable

    Note: the *-ROM versions are listed not only for "read" but…

  20. Please add an Option for *NOT* updating a Collection!

    … otherwise saved data compilation files are pretty useless.
    My problem: I burn some data to dvd/cd to delete it right after.
    I´d like to keep the dxp file to see lateron what was on the disc.
    No chance - or am I just to thumb to find it?
    The only thing I found is the data option "After opening a compilation, update it automatically". But even if I disable this CDB would empty all files just keeping the folder structure. Enabling means resetting all including folder structure.
    I´m sure there is an easy way to handle that.
    Could be…
