Burning To Bluray(Bdr)

Question

I replaced Roxio 12 with NXT4 in order to burn data files to Bluray discs. Well attempting a data copy gets the same results - it does not recognize a BDR as a "writable" and keeps asking me to insert a writable disc -- same exact thing Roxio 12 was doing. I was able to write to a re-writable (BDE) but it does not like BDR's. I see they have a plugin but it says this is for writing video files to Blurays. I am running Windows 10 and it tells me that the drivers are up to date on my optical disk writer.

Sorry to nag but since you mentioned video files. Please confirm you are after a Data Disc project and not a BD Movie...

 

Did you pursue this when you had Roxio Creator 2012?

 

Does it do it with DVD's to?

 

Which specific burning program are you trying with as there are a few in the Roxio Suites?

 

What Other burn programs have you tried - Windows has had its' own burning programs since XP.

I am not trying to burn/copy movies. Have been using Data Copy (believe these are Data Disc Projects) to copy data files and folders (Creator 12) for several years now. These were to DVD-DL, DVD-RW. Would like to copy these files to Blu ray discs to take advantage of the extra storage space. Both Creator 12 and NXT4 allow me to write to BD-RE but not to BD-R's. I'm starting to suspect that my Blu ray DVD writer is bad and have purchased a new one but first want to make sure it's not something I missed about the software.

Thanks for the info.

 

I cannot say I have burned a Data BD-R with NXT 4...

 

I'll have to give that a try and let you know ;)

One other thing to try, since it works with BD-RE discs, is to get a different brand or two of regular blu-ray discs. It may just be having a problem with the particular discs you've got.

The laser would be the same I would think writing to BD-RE or BD-R's.

 

It did the same thing in both Creator 2012 and NXT4, doesn't sound like a software problem!

 

What is the name brand of the BD-RE and BD-R disc's?

 

Install the new writer and tell us if the problem is still there?

Testing indicates the Drive...

 

Note the italics, meaning I cannot conclude 110% that is the issue :lol:

 

I used 2 PC's both with Win 10. One had a M-Disc Burner the other an LG. (the M-Disc burner has been a bit erratic from the day I got it) My NXT 4 is only on my two Win 10 PC's.

 

The one with the M-Disc drive Will Not write to any BD-R I tried!. It will write to a DVD-R and a BD-RE - as you found.

 

With BD Burners in the $60 range you might want to consider replacing yours... Although if it can write to BD-R from other applications, it becomes a head scratcher ;)

 

Let us know what you do.

I replaced my burner with an LG, BH16 and was able to do 2 data copies to BD-R's. So it appears my old writer was the problem. Burned 20+ GB to each - about 13 min. each.

When I booted up after installing the drive, NXT 4 installed an upgrade. Do not know if this had anything to do with the new hardware or if Roxio just had an upgrade ready.

I am using both Memorex and Verbatim BD-R's.

It would be the SP3 patch - that's a hotfix for FastFlick, which was pushed out recently.

Neither of mine had the NXT 4, SP3 patch installed at the time I tested... (back to phase 1 :wacko: )

 

BD-R burned OK on the Win 10 PC that has the SP3 update. That was the same one that was successful before but I have not applied that update to my other PC... That is the one with the questionable drive anyway so there is little point in revisiting that puppy ;)

Thank you guys for the help and support! I've burned data to 10 - 15 BD-R so far without errors or problems. This is about a third the number of DL DVD's from before. I will keep those for awhile until I'm confident these Blu Rays will still be readable 6 mos. - 1 yr from now but everything looks good now and NXT 4 is running fast and efficient. Thanks again.
