I tried that for the first BD-R. It took almost as long as moving the stuff to the flash drive. Also, my luck with hard disk drives is so bad that I don't want to use this one any more than I have to. Sad

Would it help if the builtin browser supported multi-selection (like the new Pfind)?

I'm embarrassed to have to say that I haven't tried the new Pfind. I'll have to check it out, to be sure of what you mean. Then I'll be able to answer your question.

I took a quick look at Pfind 5.01 but couldn't figure out how to select multiple items. Maybe I misunderstood what you meant.

In general though, it should speed things up greatly for me if I could select multiple directories in ROX, then somehow transfer the selected directories en masse to either the Pburn burn window or to a directory created in that window, but without actually transferring any files until the actual burning operation commences. Does that make sense?

How would that be easier? Does Pburn not support adding files by right-click anymore or something?

Right-clicking a directory in Pburn's left window transfers that directory to Pburn's right window (what I call Pburn's burn window). But if there are a hundred directories to transfer to the burn window, this takes a while. I have not found a way to select a bunch of directories in Pburn's left window (for instance by left-clicking the area between directories and then dragging, as I can do in ROX, or by holding down a key such as the Ctrl key while right-clicking directories in a list). If I could somehow select a large group of directories from a list in Pburn's left window, then right-click the selected directories to transfer them en masse to the burn window, I'd be a happy camper. Smile

Now that you've forced me to think about it, it does seem that right-clicking a hundred individual subdirectories in Pburn would almost certainly have been faster than copying them from one directory to another, then right-clicking that directory in Pburn. So maybe I'm making a mountain out of a molehill Embarassed

Oh, sure. When Zigbert talked about multiple selection in Pfind I was thinking you would have to click them all one at a time. But yes, it would be much faster if it was possible to click and drag, or shift-click the first and last files, to select a large number.

Thank you Sigmund! Pburn is truly ready for the big time now.

I installed Pburn 3.7.3, opened it and navigated its built-in browser to a directory that contains many subdirectories, each of which contains many mp3 files. I was able to select a large contiguous group of these subdirectories by holding down the Shift key while left-clicking the first and last of the group of subdirectories that I wanted to burn. I also found I could select individual subdirectories by holding down the Ctrl key while left-clicking the desired subdirectories. Once the subdirectories I wanted were selected, I clicked the + sign in Pburn and the selected directories showed up in the burn window. Excellent work!

Anyone who burns data to optical disks, CD, DVD or Blu-Ray, should try Pburn. Very Happy

I thought that burning was yesterdays technology, but it seems that BD has given it new life. I have recently been in contact with several users that wants Pburn to run in other distros. Someone is spreading the word.....


Thank you for your testing and reports
Sigmund

just curious -
Updated Pburn 3.61 to 3.72 and noticed the following

Pburn 3.61 burn iso image defaults to close session
Pburn 3.73 burn iso image defaults to multi session

Percentage wise, would not most users close session when burning iso?

Just guessing, but I think most users would be using Pburn to burn live CDs or DVDs of Puppy isos, in which case burning a multisession disk makes multisession Puppy an automatic option. Otherwise I don't think it matters if the iso is burned on a multisession disk, it will still boot the same. I could be wrong. Rolling Eyes

The reason for closing session was to verify burnt data. Now, Rerwin has helped out to support verifying also for multisession. Then there was no argument left to close session.
