Thank you for the information regarding my product. I tried your suggestion, but do not have the option to select "Test Only". The only option on my software is "Write Only". "Test" & "Test then Write" do not appear when I select the dropdown under Burn options. I think I will have to purchase new software that will allow Bluray disc burning.
To answer your question, no, I have never burned a Bluray disc before. I purchased the laptop in 2009 and it came with a Bluray player/burner. My understanding at the time of purchase was that the drive would burn Bluray disks, but at the time, they were not readily available and I didn't need disks that big, so I never tried one. I forget the details, but I must have gotten new software, as I assume Roxio 2011 was not available at the time of purchase.
I have previously & can still burn CD's & DVD's, but now that file sizes are increasing, I wanted to start burning Bluray disks, to save space. From what I have found and your comments confirmed, it does not appear that the software will allow bluray disk burning. I will see if there is an add-on program that will allow Bluray disc burning, or just find some new software that will do the same.
Thank you for your assistance.
