  • Changed: MDS creation code to make proper 2 layer MDS files for discs that have 2 layers!
  • Changed: MDS loading code to make use of info (see above) for DL recording (Perfect 1:1 backups!)
  • Changed: Some of the special code that's run as part of the DoItFast4U CLI switch
  • Changed: The program now only checks for updates once per day - saves pointless hammering of the server
  • Changed: 'Create DVD MDS File' window listbox now scrolls if entries are too long
  • Changed: File mode 'Detect Mastering Errors' now works like IFO and ISO modes and still checks each VOB/CELL ID change even when the file isn't supposed to be protected
  • Changed: Handling of ripping process in IFO mode. It now wont care if the 'VTS Cell Address Table' doesn't match the PGC
  • Changed: Browsing for a destination folder will now default to the closest folder to the currently selected one instead of going to the desktop
  • Changed: Clicking on the hdd icon to the left of destination will now open the closest folder to the currently selected one instead of doing nothing if that exact folder didn't exist

  • Changed: Code for 'Opening' of device in SPTI mode

  • Fixed: Unused cells from the start of a PGC would have been copied in IFO mode when they shouldn't have been
  • Fixed: Data buffer overflow when setting the hardware read error retries count
  • Fixed: Burning 2352 sector images in 2048 mode (and some other weird combinations!)
  • Fixed: Firmware lookup on for DVDRAM drives would fail to find any results

Tried it, and it worked great......till the uninstall. The software had taken control of my burner and would not release it,regardless of other softwares installed. A possible conflict with windows media player. My resolution was to backup important files and restore my computer. If you decide to load to keep the program, it works well and the price is right.
