Old news burning with ubuntu 14.04 & Imgburn with WINE

October 15, 2014

Needed to restore my backup copy as my original is for keeps (collectors item, well soon) and with a 2yr old I don’t want it destroying any time soon

install wine from the software centre and then download the EXE file for imgburn, wine config select windows XP and OK

general settings for burning your backup can be found anywhere on the internet (latest version I’m using is 2013 with the IHAS liteon drive)

When I opened up imgburn the drive wasn’t found so go into settings I/O and select the top option ATAPIĀ 

then issues finding the DISC just persist and keep trying a different disc till it loads it (I’ve had issues in the past but retrying seems to cure it EVEN with Verbatim’s)

after plenty of FAFFING the disc went through the burning procedure and maybe we might get a backup FIFA14 again

my old DELL studio 1737 has an ESATA connection and works well with the LITEON IHAS drive needs separate power option

Ihas burning errors – 50% fail

December 18, 2011

some good info on the xbox scene site settings might just work out check them out here

tips

I use these settings now, recommended by Lightning UK (the creator of ImgBurn): –

1. Clear OPC history using EEPROM Utility and power cycle the drive.

2. Enable Smart Burn and Force Hyper Tuning.

3. Disable Over Speed Writing and Online Hyper Tuning.

4. Disable OPC in ImgBurn.

5. Burn at 4X.

In your case, as you just started using a new spindle of discs, it could be a bad batch, but give those settings a try anyway
