Feature Request
It doesn't appear to be possible to filter file windows to specific filetypes such as .iso files. See attached screen grab from attempting to import an ISO on Pburn 3.7.18 - the actual ISOs were quite a way down the list.

With regard to the discussion on changing burn option windows, I note that zigbert's example grab shows a nice Info button and an Advanced tab. The latter would be a handy place for explicitly stating the burn options where the simplified options won't suffice for the target system.

That's too OS-specific, some older versions of RISC OS will also only read CDs with 8.3 naming. IIRC native Joliet support only came in with RISC OS 4.x. The relevant filing system is CDFS so "DOS" is meaningless in that context.

Just having it as "8.3 naming (deprecated)" will do - it's succinct and one can make a reasonable assumption that only people that know they need it are likely to select it anyway.

Yes, but I don't think they need checkboxes and things for them. If there's an unusual combination of options someone knows they want to use, then allowing them to manually edit the command should be sufficient.

It is possible to filter the content of the file-window, BUT that requires opening the file-window from an entry+button. Not from a menuitem as when import iso-image. (If this sounds like non-sense and bullshit, I totally agree with you. But it is still the way how gtkdialog works Smile ). It could maybe be fixed by a invisible entry+button that are called from the menuitem, but at the same time, I want to keep the code uncluttered.

Hi guys,

I burned a few DVDs with Pburn while on Puppy Linux and now they show up empty on Windows Vista.

I was using a Toshiba A200 with Windows Vista that crashed and I had to run the recovery cd. Before doing so, I put a usb pen on my Asus EEE 901 with Lubuntu, installed Unetbootin and created a Puppy Linux Live usb pen. I booted this on my Toshiba (which was freezing upon boot, so this was the only possibility), and used Pburn to backup files before runing the recovery cd.

The recovery cd was run, the system was recovered and the Toshiba is now running Vista again as new. However, the dvds I burned before in Puppy Linux with Pburn show as empty.

What can I do?

Thank you in advance,
Francisco

You're a bit off-topic, but can you read them in Puppy?

Yes, I can.
I can boot Puppy through the pen and simply copy paste the content of each dvd after mounting the "windows" hard-drive.

Is there a better topic to post about Pburn?

No, but it seemed like you were asking about how to read those CDs, more than about the apparent problem with Pburn.

What a let down, I wasn't expecting this sort of incompatibility that is often mentioned as an "alternative" or rescue option for Windows. There should at least be a visible notice about during the burning process.

We are working towards compatibility.
Is Microsoft doing the same?

I'm really unlucky for having missed this change by 2 days. Being a simple home user, I would expect this sort of issues in 90s software, not anymore.

Version 4 includes as small changes as possible. I had not the intention to do things a new way this time. pBurn is too stable to rewrite code.

The only main thing is that this release supports windows XP/7/8. To get this going I had to reorganize the filesystem options - that's all.

NOTE!
This release require cdrtools-3. This is included in Slacko and FatDog, but I don't think Barry has switched from cdrkit.
