I have a reoccurring problem with the program ImgBurn. Whenever I try and burn anything to a CD-R using ImgBurn it burns just fine, except for when I go and verify the disk. It tells me that the "Layouts do not match". Windows 7 shows the disk as completely blank. Although, I see on the bottom of the disk it has been written to.

I can burn ISO files to DVD-R's just fine. This only seems to happen with CD-R's. The CD-R's I'm using are Memorex Cool Colors 52x CD-R's.

I have looked on Google, and it seems like I'm not the only one this happens to. Unfortunately, no one is able to provide an explanation.

I have included the log file from the last CD I just burnt. If you need anything else to better diagnose this problem, I will gladly provide it.

Did you try asking the developer in the app's forum? I also suggest you try another batch for CD-Rs and burn at the slowest supported speed. –  Karan Nov 20 '12 at 20:27
    
I didn't ask there, yet. Although it seems like I am going to have to. I was thinking the same about the CD's. I will obtain another brand and try again at the slowest supported speed which is 6x for me. –  0xAether Nov 20 '12 at 21:58
    
Slowest supported speed might be 6x for you, but Destination Media Supported Write Speeds: 10x, 16x, 20x, 24x is what actually matters. –  Karan Nov 20 '12 at 22:25
    
@Karan I tried at the slowest speed I could and also the fastest. So, I don't think the burn speed can be the problem. –  0xAether Nov 20 '12 at 23:03
    
So just manually set it to 24×. Click the icon next to the drop-down (with the little green man running), and set it so that it always uses 24× for that drive with that media. As for the resulting disc, have you tried doing a manual comparison to the source like with WinMerge? If all of the files are identical, then there isn’t too much to worry about since it is a home-burned disc, not a factory-pressed disc which requires non-file bits to be exact (such as for copy-protection). –  Synetech Dec 21 '13 at 5:21

Can you mount this ISO image with daemon tools or something? Also, notice that from some reason he tries to write at 6x speed, which is not recognized by your hardware. Try setting it to AWS: enter image description here

I don't have Daemon tools, but I know that the ISO file is completely intact and isn't corrupted or anything. I used the AWS setting and the problem still persists. Here is the log file from when I used the AWS setting –  0xAether Nov 20 '12 at 17:50
