Burning Blu Ray

Question

Using Toast 10.0.9 on a Mac Intel with 10.6.8 OS

USB Blu Ray drive: CT20N

 

I've used this drive to burn CD-R and DVD-R.

 

I'm trying to burn a BDMV file to a Ridata BD-R 25GB disc.

 

After the disc scans for about a minute, it shows it to be a "CD-R", not a BD-R, even though I've set the disc type to BD-R

 

When I click burn I get:

 

"Disc reported an error

Sense Key=illegal Request

Sense code=0x24"

 

I cancel the window and then get:

 

"couldn't determine the free space" and

"no media detected in the drive"

 

How do I get the drive and BD disc to be recognized?

You're not going to like this, Ken, but.... your drive is only a Blu-ray READER, not a WRITER. Sorry.

 

To confirm: go to System Profiler: and look for this: (I guess you won't find it):

You need to find a drive the DOESN"T have the word "Combo" in the name!! (That means it doesn't write to everything it reads.)

Hi I hope you can help me. I just purchased the Toast 10 Titanium HD/BD Plug-in so that I can burn Blu ray disc with my Toast 10 Titanium which says it needs the plugin and can do it. Ok I have my Toast 10 Titanium HD/BD Plug-in installer on my desk top and also Toast 10 Titanium. How do I add them, put them together. I am using an iMac OS X version 10.6.7 and I will use an LG Blu Ray Blu-ray Disc Rewriter GGW-H20L Thanks C

Launch the Plugin installer and enter your registration key. You're done. What it does is activate the Blu-ray options in Toast that were previously deactivated.

In the Toast Video window you should have Blu-ray Video available as a format option. If that is available then the plugin is installed. The Blu-ray setting in the Recorder menu requires you to first insert a rewritable Blu-ray disc (BD-RW). It is so you can have a Blu-ray disc that you use like an external hard drive. The disc must be RW because data cannot be erased from a BD-R disc.
