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.

Ahh ok, I see what you mean.
Have you tried all the options from the start menu?

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