        • Rename "Closing Disc" to "Closing Session"

          Unfortunately, other disc burning software refers to "finalizing disc" as "closing disc". Although CDBurnerXP does prompt the user to finalize a data disc or not before they burn it, it would be most helpful to the novice computer users I work with if CDBurnerXP's Burn Progress window displayed "Closing Session" instead of "Closing Disc." "Closing Track" would also suffice too. Do note that certain industries have very strict requirements about finalizing discs.

          • Improve Polling Checks (checking for an empty disc/DVD/media)

            Currently it is often that an empty disc inserted into a drive will be not detected until the "Target device for the burning process" selection box is changed when you have more than one drive.

            In summary improving the accuracy of optical burner drive statuses would be great for when burning one disc after another.

            • Please Add Support for Direct to Disk Printing

              Specifically, I’d love to see support for Canon’s Direct Disk Print.
              https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ICGWeK-K0cE

              Epson also offers a similar feature.
              https://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/CDLanding.jsp

              I’m not particularly interested in fancy graphics, I just need a user specified title, date the disk was burned, listing of files on disk and possibly a media type identification logo to distinguish CDs from DVDs from BDs.

              • Drag, Drop and Burn all in one

                I read about this in one of your forums from 2013.
                It would be nice if a person could use a R/W DVD and just drop files on to the DVD or CD without going through the burning process. In other words, drag, drop and burn, all in one without closing the disc.

                I am sure you are too busy to deal with this but it's just a thought. It'd be great, at least for me. Maybe others also.

                Ed

                    • Add the .ts file format for burning video discs

                      I can burn a DVD video disk in HD or SD but only with "Burn Data Disk" option (first one) not with "Burn DVD Video" (second one). Without using TSDoctor even "Burn Data Disk" might be a bit of a problem because often a missing header is reported. I use a TBS satellite card as well as a DrHD D15 receiver and an Openbox S2 HD for recording.

                      • inverse sorting data

                        For triple layer Blurays and longer storage times it is useful to have the possibility to put on one BD the beginning files on the first layer (of the triple layer) and on a second BD the ending files on the first layer (of the triple layer). This inverse sorting might be by button or by menu.
                        Thanks.

                        • make use of "archive" file attribute

                          How about options to make use of the "archive" file attribute?
                          * reset the attribute of files that have been burned (so one can easily check what files have changed since the last burn session)
                          * filter for easily adding files to a data compilation that have this attribute set, obeying directory tree (so one can easily burn the changed files - and only those)

                          This would be useful for stuff like incremental backup.

                          • Enhance the print options

                            The print preview shows track numbers and titles correctly but the track duration is not fully displayed, eg. 00:01.... or 00:00... My attempts to overcome this problem have been futile. I suspect that it is due to a given paper format which is not or scarcely used in European countries.

                              • Limit lenght of disc labels fields

                                CDBurnerXP should limit ability of user to add more characters in disc labels fields than it is allowed by either ISO 9660/Joliet or UDF specification, because currently you can add as much characters as you want and this confuses users when disc name is cut-off.

                                  • On CDBurnerXP execution, check for a default language setting in HKLM\...\CDBurnerXP\

                                    On CDBurnerXP execution, the check for a default language setting should also include HKLM\[Software|Software\Wow6432Node]\Canneverbe Limited\CDBurnerXP\

                                    Before displaying the "select language" dialog, check if the DefaultLanguage has been set in:
                                    - the current user's %APPDATA%\...\CDBurnerXP\ directory for UserSettings.ini? NOT set, then check
                                    - the system [AppData|ProgramData]\...\CDBurnerXP\ directory for UserSettings.ini? NOT set, then check
                                    - the current user registry HKCU\[Software|Software\Wow6432Node]\Canneverbe Limited\CDBurnerXP\ NOT set, then check
                                    - the local machine registry HKLM\[Software|Software\Wow6432Node]\Canneverbe Limited\CDBurnerXP\ NOT set, then display the default language dialog

                                    This cascading check would be extremely useful from a multi-user, deployment point of view.

                                    • For data discs, allow to change the text of the tracs

                                      When creating the cover, in "audio disc" you can change the text of the tracks (disc - text) what you cannot for data discs. So, allow it also for data discs!

                                      • Support recovery of windows errors that prevent CDBurnerXP from completing.

                                        When Windows initiates an error that causes CDBurner to shutdown it would be very useful to have the ability to restart a burn session. All selected files should be automatically saved along with any information CDBurnerXP generates for spanned disk to be used for a recovery session. To be able to recover by restarting on for example disk 3 of a 7 disk spanned set and then continue through all remaining disk to be burned in normal fashion.

                                        • auto updates

                                          Please enable us to MANUALLY CHECK FOR UPDATES in the application itself without having to be redirected to the site to download the latest version. In short, I want that the application should display a pop - up or a dialog box showing a prompt that "An Update Is Available".

                                          P.S. - If this feature is already implemented please guide me to activate it.
