DVD/CD Toys FAQ

20110223
Q-1: How to extract a dvd iso? Grab iso?
A-1: Use dvdsaveimage utility
 
Q-2: Can I watch movies, browse Internet while buring a disk?
A-2: Yes, you can do this. Don't load harddrive and CPU. [not translated]
 
Q-3: Can I watch movies, browse Internet while grabbing .iso from CD?
A-3: Yes, you can.
 
Q-4: Can I burn disks from network disk?
A-4: Yes, you can. [not translated]
 
Q-5: How to write video DVD?
A-5: It is not possible with current version of utilities. mkisofs doesn't support UDF filesystem.
 
Q-6: Why do you use cdrecord, not dvddao?
A-6: DVD/CD Toys are using cdrecord (cdrtools). The functionality of dvddao and cdrecord is similar. cdrecord is better:
  • cdrecord overcomes dao by functionality.
  • All-in-one: CD DVD BD Audio Video, etc.
  • More models of recorders are supported
  • more reliable, tested and debugged (only transport layer is ported to eCS, all other code is not changed)

 
Q-7: Different case of letters on harddisk and recorded CD
A-7: File Commander->F9->Options->Configuration, Remove CDFS from the list "Case Filter File Systems"
 
Q-8: Do you support burning of Blu-ray disks?
A-8: Blu-ray read/write is not tested
 
Q-9: How to disable RSJ?
A-9: DVD Toys work even if RSJ is installed (cdrecord has direct access to OS2CDROM.DMD)

To disable RSJ drivers, edit CONFIG.SYS (then reboot):

rem DEVICE=E:\PROGRAMS\RSJCD\RSJSCSI.SYS /S
rem IFS=E:\PROGRAMS\RSJCD\CDWFS.IFS /S
rem RUN=E:\PROGRAMS\RSJCD\CDWFSD.EXE -p "E:/var/temp" -c20000 -b2048 -t2 -i3 -s0

 
Q-10: Cyrillic letters on burned CD are replaced with "_"
A-10: a) Check config.sys, cdfs.ifs should have /W switch
IFS=x:\OS2\BOOT\CDFS.IFS /Q /W

/W Supports CD-ROM in the Win-32 (Joliet) format. 
The names are in Unicode and allow long names in mixed case. 
If you do not specify this option, only the shortened form 
of the file name shows. 

b) Use special build of CDFS.IFS (distributed with eComStation/Rus)
 

Q-11: Can I duplicate protected disks?
A-11: We didn't tested our program with such disks.
 
Q-12: Can I create Photo-CD?
A-12: DVD Toys doesn't have such function, other OSes don't allow this (read CD-Recordable FAQ)
 
Q-13: Can I start all DVD Toys utilities simultaneously? What will happen if I access CD-ROM, while DVD/CD Toys is burning a disk?
A-13: Use our build of OS2CDROM.DMD, it is ready for such situations.
 
Q-14: Can I upload DVD/CD Toys on my site or pass CD with a copy to my friend?
A-14: Read User license, you can publish unregistered demo version, don't modify the package.
 
Q-15: How to convince that my reg.key is valid?
A-15: Try to create ISO image using Burn Files utility.
 
Q-16: Do you support multi-session?
A-16: Multisession for DVD doesn't work, for CD works.

btw, seems that users don't need this feature.
 

Q-17: What is the lifetime of CD-R, DVD-R, CD-RW?
A-17: Look at the picture: lifetime of CD, DVD
 
Q-18: Does RSJ work after installation of DVD Toys?
A-18: Yes. RSJ burns disks. DVD/CD Toys can burn.

  • Use Danis drivers.
  • Don't install RSJIDECD.FLT, else CDRTools don't work.
  • CONFIG.SYS should contain something like this:
BASEDEV=DANIS506.ADD /V
DEVICE=D:\OS2\BOOT\OS2CDROM.DMD /Q
BASEDEV=DANIATAPI.FLT /RSJ
BASEDEV=LOCKCDR.FLT
DEVICE=D:\USR\CDWFS\RSJSCSI.SYS
IFS=D:\USR\CDWFS\CDWFS.IFS
RUN=D:\USR\CDWFS\CDWFSD.EXE -p "S:/TEMP" -c20000 -b2048 -t2 -i3 -s0

 
Q-19: Do DVD/CD Toys work on SMP (multi-processor) computer?
A-19: Yes, DVD/CD Toys work fine on multi-core/multi-CPU computers
