This is cdrtfe 1.5pre/126.96.36.199, an intermediate release for testing
purposes. The features are mostly identical to the current version
1.4.1, however this version uses an other method for detecting the
cygwin path prefix, which should work with cygwin 1.7. In addition,
it is now possible to write disc images simultaneously to multiple
Even though this release is marked as test release, it should be
stable enough for daily use. As this is a test version only, neither
the translation nor the documentation have been updated.
Please let us know what you think. In our forum at sourceforge
is a thread named 'Feedback: cdrtfe 1.5pre/188.8.131.52' where you can
post your opinion about the new version. This is also the right
place to discuss problems related to the changes.
This release is only available as a potable version, so you can try
it out wihtout interfering with an installed version of cdrtfe.
The changes may have introduced new bugs, so please test and report,
if you find a bug.
Some of the translations haven't been updated for quite a while. Any
help regarding the update of existing or the creation of new
translations is much appreciated.
* Detect the cygwin path prefix with an external cygwin program. This
should work with all cygwin versions from 1.5.x to 1.7.x.
* Project 'Disc image' can now simultaneously write to multiple burners.
Works for images (ISO and CUE/BIN) and audio CUE sheets.
1. Go to the project 'Disc image' and select the ISO or CUE/BIN image
or the audio CUE sheet.
2. If cdrtfe detects at least two disc writers, you can select
'multiple writers' from the drop down list as target.
3. Click 'Start'.
4. Select the writers you want to use. Then cklick 'Ok'.
5. Click 'Start'. The Tabsheets 'Device <x>' show the log for each
writer, the Tabsheet 'Preparation' shows the log when compressed
audio files need to be converted into wav format.
Temporary files will be kept until you close this window, so you can
repeat the writing process several times without creating the temporay
Currently, there is no verification for multiple discs after the
writing process finished. You may, however, start the verification
manually for a single drive. Right-click the 'Verify' option.
It is recommended to run tests in simulation mode or with simulation
drivers before starting a real write.
