Version history for cdrtfe portable

<<Back to software description

Changes for v1.5.5 - v1.5.7

  • DAE: Addes progress bar (per track).
  • Audio CD: Start writing process only if a CD-R(W) is inserted.
  • Disk Image
  • Fixed 'Invalid handle' error when verifying ISO images by avoiding a sharing violation.
  • Check ISO volume size before staring verification. If the volume size is smaller than the ISO image size, then limit the verification to the volume.
  • Allow raw writing mode for CUE images.
  • v1.5.6
  • More adjustments for cygwin 1.7 and above.
  • Ask the user what to do if a disc could not be recognized.
  • (Un-)Installer now warns if a running instance of cdrtfe is detected.
  • Bugfix:
  • Some BD-R(E) and BD/DL discs weren't recognized correctly.

Changes for v1.5.4.1 - v1.5.5

  • GUI:
  • Support for dpi awareness.
  • Only use system icons in tree- and listviews.
  • Removed old and unused icons.
  • New icons for buttons.
  • Several options which could be set with the cdrtfe.ini are now available via the GUI.
  • DAE:
  • Support for LibParanoia options.
  • Disk image:
  • Added 'multisession' option for writing images.
  • Activate DEP and ASLR.
  • Bugfix:
  • Changing the language in portable mode did not save this setting to the cdrtfe.ini in the program folder of the portable version. Instead the cdrtfe.ini in the user directory was used, if it existed.
  • When no cdrtfe.ini existed, the language setting was saved to the cdrtfe_lang.ini. In most cases a user doesn't have the privileges to do this. Now a new cdrtfe.ini will be created.
  • Added the cdrtools folder to the search path, so that the code pages can be found by mkisofs.

Changes for v1.5.4 - v1.5.4.1

  • Bugfix:
  • A variable was incorrectly initialized, which could prevent the start of the 'Disc image' project.

Changes for v1.5.3 - v1.5.4

  • GUI:
  • The drive selection now shows the drive letter for each drive.
  • Holding the Shift key during the start of cdrtfe activates the debug mode.
  • Prevent the message 'Invalid Handle' during disc verification with multiple retries. Clarify the error message.
  • Audio CD:
  • New option in cdrtfe.ini for a less strict format checking of sound files (only flac): section [Audio-CD], RelaxedFormatChecking = 1. This makes it possible to add source files which are not in Audio CD format when using user-defined commandlines (e.g. with ffmpeg) for audio decoding.
  • Bugfix:
  • Audio CD: Tracks with identical filenames from different source folders caused problems because of name collisions of temporary files during conversion into wav format.

Changes for v1.5.2 - v1.5.3

  • Bugfix:
  • Commandline option /img can now be used together with /load.
  • The exe installer can now handle a locked ShellExtension DLL when reinstalling, updating and uninstalling cdrtfe.
  • Correctly handle program paths when writing them to the registry.
  • Fix rare access violation when initializing file explorer.

Changes for v1.5.1 - v1.5.2

  • GUI:
  • Corrected position of some controls.
  • Use bigger font size.
  • Use Vista style tree views, if possible.
  • Automatic disc type detection:
  • This feature can be activated via cdrtfe.ini by adding the line
  • DetectDiskType=1
  • to the section [General].
  • When a disc is inserted into the selected drive, cdrtfe will detect the size and type of the disc and set the space meter of the currently active project accordingly.
  • If the current project is 'Data disc', no files have been added yet and the options 'Multisession' and 'Import previous sessions' are enabled, the contents of the disc will be imported into the project and the space meter will show the space used by the previous session.
  • Ctrl-F5 forces a new detection of the disc.
  • Automatic TOC detection for project DAE:
  • This feature can be activated via cdrtfe.ini by adding the line
  • DAEAutoReadToc=1
  • to the section [General].
  • If the current project is 'DAE' and the inserted disc is an Audio CD, the TOC will automatically be read and the track list will be displayed.
  • Commandline for decoding sound files can be changed via cdrtfe.ini or project file, section [Audio-CD].
  • Add a line starting with
  • CustomConvCmdMP3=
  • CustomConvCmdOgg=
  • CustomConvCmdFLAC=
  • CustomConvCmdApe=
  • and followed by the appropriate commandline. Example:
  • CustomConvCmdOgg=c:\Programme\cdrtfe\tools\sound\oggdec.exe --quiet -b16 -o %T %S
  • %T and %S are placeholders for target and source filename.

Changes for v1.5 - v1.5.1

  • GUI:
  • Changed appearance of the message dialogs.
  • Use Segoe UI or Tahoma as font if available.
  • Corrected tab order on the cdrtfe main window.
  • Bugfix:
  • Drive recognition failed with more than 10 SCSI host adapters.
  • Under Windows 7 PE the initialization of the task bar progress indicator failed and caused cdrtfe to crash.
  • Continuing a multisession CD with importing the previous session could make both sessions (the old and new) unusable. The mkisofs command to calculate the amount of data to be written was called with wrong parameters.
  • Registering and unregistering the ShellExtension failed on Windows x64.
  • Make cdrtfe compile with Delphi 7 again.

  • Pathnames with '=' weren't handled correctly
  • Workaround for problems when running cdrtfe with BB4win/BBLean.

  • The error 'Cannot yet have different -input-charset/-output-charset' does not occur any longer (corrected incomplete adjustment to the newer mkisofs versions).

Changes for v1.3.2 - v1.3.3

  • Data-DVD: Added multiborder DVD support (cdrecord 2.01.01a50 and newer) for DVD-R and DVD-RW. A DVD-RW which has been written in multiborder mode has to blanked fully to reuse it for another writing mode.
  • Important:
  • According to the cdrecord man page multiborder DVD writing is done in the same way like writing multisession CDs. So, cdrtfe has been adjusted to allow this for DVD-R(W) discs. However, I haven't been able to successfully continue a multiborder DVD, cdrecord always complained about not having enough space left regardless how much data was to be written. I am not sure what causes this problem (cdrecord, system, drive). If you want to use this new feature, try it with a rewritable disc first. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • Splashscreen can be disabled (Startoption /nosplash or cdrtfe.ini, Section [General] Nosplash=1).
  • Show the remaining space in the status bar.
  • Folders are now displayed in the file listview (Data CD, XCD).
  • Added sliders to allow resizing of the folder treeviews and file listviews (Data CD, XCD).
  • All dialogs for selecting files or folders now remenber the last selected folder.
  • Bugfixes:
  • Corrected an integer overflow during the calculation of the used space when continuing a multisession CD or multiborder DVD.
