Step 2: Choose a Target, or burning device and Transport: SPTI, SPTD or ASPI:

  • SPTI — This transport is preferable for NT-based systems (NT4/2000/XP/Vista). It can't be used for Windows 9x (95/98/ME) systems. Under Vista allows to burn user without Administrator's rights. XP and earlier systems — Administrator's rights required.
  • SPTD — This transport is preferable for NT-based systems (NT4/2000/XP/Vista). It can't be used for Windows 9x (95/98/ME) systems. Requires special drivers to be installed and machine reboot is needed. If drivers installed properly — allows any local user to burn (without Administrator's rights). Look into Active@ Data Burner installation folder for files SPTDinst-v162-x64.exe and SPTDinst-v162-x86.exe to install SPTD drivers on x64 & x86 plathform respectively.
  • ASPI — Intended for Windows 9x systems (98/ME). For others still supported in compatibility mode, but requires winaspi32.dll in the application directory.

Step 3: In Options - specify burning preferences:

  • Disc Label — by default it is a current date.
  • File System — select either UDF (Universal Disk Format) or ISO9660+Joliet
  • Speed — select one of available speeds supported by burner and media combination. Auto-Select — by default.
  • Erase Media — for Read-Write (RW) media type — erases it first before burning starts
  • Burn in Test mode — simulates burning process, but laser is turned off
  • Verify Data — after burning is complete — verify how data has been written, check for reading errors
  • Eject Media — after burning is complete — eject CD/DVD/Blu-ray

Step 4. Insert a blank CD/DVD/Blu-ray disc into the CD/DVD/Blue-ray disc drive and click the Burn Data button.

Step 5. See the progress. To cancel data burning you can click the Cancel button.

Automation of burning data to CD/DVD-ROM/Blu-ray

Syntax:


BurnDataCD.EXE [/ADD=FOLDERPATH] [/FILE=FULLPATH] [/BURN] /[EXIT-IF-OK]
                          [/ERASE] [/VERIFY] [/EJECT] [/TITLE]
                          

Software accepts command line parameters to automate burning process:

  • /ADD=FOLDERPATH — adds a folder to the list of items to be burned. FOLDERPATH parameter is a full path (i.e. "C:\Program Files\My Folder\") to the target item to be burned. Must be in quotes if contains spaces.
  • /FILE=FULLPATH — loads a tree from a collection being saved previously. If item exists in collection, but not on disk, it just being ignored. FULLPATH parameter is a full path (i.e. "C:\Program Files\My Folder\My Collection.cdb") to the saved collection. Must be in quotes if contains spaces.
  • /ADDFOLDER=FOLDERPATH — adds contents of the folder to the root of the CD/DVD/Blu-ray being burned. FOLDERPATH parameter is a full path (i.e. "C:\Program Files\My Folder\") to the target item to be burned. Must be in quotes if contains spaces.
  • /ERASE — erases RW media before burning starts. Ignored if media not RW.
  • /VERIFY — file tree verification after burn process has completed.
  • /EJECT — ejects media after burning.
  • /TITLE — sets a label for a disc to be burned.
  • /BURN — process of burning data CD/DVD starts automatically right after program launch. If some command line parameters not specified explicitly, last used parameters will be loaded for the command execution.
  • /EXIT-IF-OK — if command is successfully completed, program auto-exits. If errors detected - you will see error messages on the dialog (no auto-exit).
  • /FS=[0-CDFS, 1-UDF] — specifies which file system to use. Zero sets ISO9660, One sets UDF.

Note:
You cannot use parameters /ADD and /FILE all together.

Example:

To burn Data CD/DVD automatically from command line and exit the program after successful burning, run:

C:\> BurnDataCD.exe /ADD="C:\Temp\My Folder" /VERIFY /EJECT /BURN /EXIT-IF-OK

This command adds a content of folder "C:\Temp\My Folder" (with all its content - recursively) to the list of items to be burned, starts burning immediately after loading, verifies data when burning is complete, ejects media, and exists if no errors detected.
