Burns 1 full DVD then only burns CD amount to next.

Postby dogdirt » Thu May 05, 2011 7:36 am

I've had Photos Forever for a few years and it has been great. As most of my pics were less than 1 meg I didn't need more than 1 DVD, no problem. Unfortunately the original DVD got damaged a while ago and I have only just got around to recreating it. Since then I've taken loads more pics, all around 3 meg - new camera - and decided to save them all to DVD.
I originally used the Imapi engine, which had problems, but have since updated to the Primo with Version 1.0.1.20.
I load a DVD before I start the program and it burns that OK, but when I load the 2nd DVD it only burns 1 CD worth of pics on it and then asks for another disk. Why?
:evil:

When a disk is full the program will ask for another. 3meg or megabyte is small, DVD's hold about 4300.8MB which is 4.2GB, I think you mean Gigs or Gigabytes.

Hi Eric,

The '3 meg' applies to each photo and I've got 1000's of them, so the prog asks for 44 CDs or 7 DVDs. When the 1st DVD is finished, after 1500 or so pics, it asks for another disk, which I load, but it only puts about 200 pics on that DVD before it ejects it and asks for another and so on. The DVDs I use are luckily quite cheap, but it seems pointless to use dozens of them when it should only use the 7 it originally asked for. The program should be amended so that you can choose between DVDs and CDs.

The Goldenhawks don't recognise the DVD writer, IMAPI fails with the GENERIC problem which is why I upgraded to Primo, so ??.
