Bug Fix: Fixed isoBurn crashing when trying to verify after burn.
Ratings and Reviews
Truncates source files!
I got this app to burn some backups while ignoring the end of the image if it is too big - this is something I knew the app could do. I managed to burn one disk fine then on the second one it actually truncated to ZERO BYTES the source ISO file - Be very careful when feeding it files.
Simple and to the point.
I just needed a simple utility to burn a bootable disc image (an ISO I had downloaded), and the utility did just that, no problem. I've burned probably about 20 discs with this utility and maybe once have had a ruined disc, but that's a lot better than other applications I've used in the past. If this app were to gain the ability to rip discs images (more like ImgBurn for Windows) and a nice graphical facelift (it's not bad, but I've learned to expect better interfaces from Mac apps), this app would hands down be 5 stars.
Pros: Simple UI, high success rate, easy and quick to use.
Cons: Not the prettiest interface, could add a rip feature.
The first ISO file I tried to burn ... hung. The isoburn program let me drag my ISO filename to it's "drag here" square,
and I clicked on "Next". Up popped a window that asked me about enable "Layer Break" (?????). I clicked "Next", and
nothing happened. Repeatedly. Dead in the water.
The problem was probably caused by a malformed ISO image (141 MBs instead of the 345 MBs it should have been) ...
but ... *TELL ME*. Don't hang. Don't fail to react to a button click.
I re-downloaded the ISO, and re-ran isoburn from scratch. It's now burning at 4x.
Why noit 16x? I have no idea ... Mac OS X defaulted to 16x for the drive.
I re-ran isoburn. The speed selection pull-down has:
[ maximum possible (31x) ]
[ 4.0 x]
[ 8.0 x]
[ 16.0 x]
[ 24.0 x]
[ 32.0 x]
So...is 31x (not 32x) really the maximum? :)
It doesn't give this user a warm fuzzy feeling.
So, turn to online help ... there is none.
