I don't think it works.

Did you try making an .iso file for the video and running multiple instances of imgburn in parallel, each burning that iso to a different burner?

With imgburn free, most burners coming with a free OEM copy of a burning program and the excellent cdburnerxp being a free download also, I fail to see why anybody would pay $30 for another burning program. Let's hope you're still in the trial period. Saves you $30.

I see where you get this "Burn multiple copies at the same time" from, their home page at; http://www.vso-software.fr/products/copyto/copy-to.php

But reading their manual at http://www.vso-software.fr/tutorial.php I can't find anything about burning multiple copies at the same time. All I see is content about multisession discs, and that is different of course.

Frankly I don't see how this would work anyway unless you had multiple burner capable CDR/RW or DVDR/RW drives. If you don't then you can only ever place one disc in a drive at a time, so I'm with Kees, I don't think this works.

May be their forums would help; http://forums.vso-software.fr/website-and-forum-f46.html

I think they mean "You can define a set of files and have the program burn multiple copies of that set without having to define the same set of files each time." Like printing multiple copies of a document in a word processor with the same settings.

Yes I agree

It's interesting wording though, if slightly misleading.

Hi Guys,

Thanks for the help. I did find the option. I needed to go into the settings | Manager settings and check "Enable Multi-Drive Burn".

Then in the list of drives in the manager there are check boxes next to each drive listed. I just checked the drives I wanted to use, insert the blank disks and they burnt simultaneously.

Thanks for your replies.

I've just re-read your top post and I missed where you said you had 3 burners.

I think my responses would have been different if I had opened my eyes more and seen that. Happy

Good work, and thanks for reporting back.

Mark
