    This Operation Currently Prohibited For This Disc

    Hi Digitial Guru; Firstly, thank you for the response. I did as you suggested, but it didn't make any difference to the results. I tried IMGBURN again using the same rewriteable BD disc, burner and files, and that worked. I'm left with the assumtion that there's something in OS 10.8.2 and/or Toast 11.1 that creates a disc, that when played in my Sony BDP-S370, causes these playback issues. Because when I burn the same files to the same re-writeable disc with the same burner; but using IMGBURN in Windows 7 (in Parallels), it creates a disc that plays fine in my Sony BDP-S370. Do you know if there is anyway to find out from the burnt disc what that "difference" might be? Some hidden file or the like. Thanks in advance. Robert.
  2. Setup: Mac OS 10.8.2 & Windows 7 (in Parrallels) Handbrake 0.9.8 x86_64 OWC Mercury Pro Blu-ray Burner Toast 11 Tintanium (11.0.6) Verbatim Bluray & DVD blanks (Rewriteables used to do "test burns"). Sony BDP-S370 Blu-ray Player What I'm doing: - I'm archiving a number of old camera tapes by capturing to the Mac using FCP7. - I then use Handbrake to convert the tapes (mov files) to MKV files each about 7GB in size. (Just my personal choice). - I run all my MKV files through "MKV Chapterizer" using the default of a chapter marker every 5 minutes. (Personal choice). Burning to a Blu-ray disc: - I use Toast 11 Tintanium (11.0.6) - DATA tab; DVD-ROM (UDF) setting for burning the 3 MKV files to a blank BD disc. Getting to the problem: - The 3 MKV files I've prepared total about 21Gbs. I burn to a blank Blu-ray disc using Toast. Burning completes successfully and I put the disc in my Sony BDP-S370. - The first two MKV files play OK, I can FF or FR and jump chapter markers. - However when I play the 3rd MKV file, it's starts OK, but I cannot FF or FR nor can I access chapter markers. Instead I get this message: "This operation currently prohibited for this disc". I have been trying to figure out a solution to this for far to long. The ONLY solution I have been able to come up with is to burn the MKV files using IMGBURN in Windows 7. The 3 MKV files that I couldn't burn successfully with Toast 11 (&OSX) I cou;ld burn successfully using IMGBURN in Windows 7. FF & FR work, and I can jump chapter markers without issue on all 3 files. Anyone know what's going on?? Is this something to do with UDF in Toast 11 and/or OX10.8? Thanks in advance. Robert.
  3. This isn't really a problem, more a request for information. I have some MKV files containing chapter markers and subtitles. (1.) I startup Toast 11 and select the DATA tab. Under the DATA tab I select "Mac & PC" (or just "Mac") and drag and drop the MKV file(s) and burn to either a standard DVD or BD disc. Depending on the number and size of the files. I insert the burnt disc into my Bluray player, select it, then select a file, and press play. The MKV will play, but I'm unable to FF or FR or jump to chapter markers. I'll get the ""This operation currently prohibited for this disc" message. (2.) Under the DATA tab I select "DVD_ROM(UDF)" and drag and drop the MKV file(s) and burn to either a standard DVD or BD disc. Depending on the number and size of the files. I insert the burnt disc into my Bluray player, select it, then select a file, and press play. The MKV will play, and I can FF and FR, jump to chapter markers as well as turn subtitles on and off. All is fine. Obviously there's a difference between burning a file under the DATA option using "Mac & PC" or "DVD_ROM(UDF)" that results in a disc with MKV files on it that will either play properly or not. What I'd like to know is what is that difference? (If the question makes sense). What is the difference in the way the same MKV files are burnt? I know that "Mac & PC" is used to burn data files, while "DVD_ROM(UDF)" is used to burn a DVD. (Video_TS folder). Thanks all. Robert.

    Using Dvd+R Dl With Bd Plugin?

    Well, I found a solution to my problem after a couple of days of doing "test burns", each different until i tracked down what was going on. I'd start Toast 11; then select DATA -> DVD-ROM (UDF) -> create a disc name add the various movie files. Each movie file was inside a folder. I did this as some movies came with sequels or images, (posters etc). and or music. So putting it all in a separate folder made sense. And each DVD had a couple of folders. ie; a couple of movies with various extras. Long story short, I found that the DVDs that would not play, would not play because either the main folder or a sub-folder had either a "." or "," in it's name. Strange but true. Put a "." in any folder name and that DVD would not play on the Blu-ray player. They would however play on a standard DVD Player. I removed all the "." and ","; ( and anything but "-"); from all the folder names and the DVDs that wouldn't play on the Blu-ray Player, played without a problem.

    Using Dvd+R Dl With Bd Plugin?

    Sorry, this isn't an answer to your problem. I've been doing the same thing. Or at least similiar. I have a Mac Mini with a red laser and Toast 11.0.1. I've been burning to DVD-R my film collection, which consists of old SF films in various formats. DivX, AVI, Generic-MP4, MP4, M4V etc. I'd start Toast 11; then select DATA -> DVD-ROM(UDF) -> create a disc name add the various movie files. Each time I'd burn the project to a DVD+RW disc first and check it was OK, before burning to a DVD-R. I'd test the DVD-R's in my Sony BDP-S370 Blu-ray player, which has the latest firmware installed. I burnt 5 DVDs with no problem. All films play without a problem. Then when I tested the DVD+RW from the latest project I'd got a DVD symbol with a "?" across it. The blu-ray player couldn't play the DVD. ie; could not read DVD. I've been trying everything I can the last day or two to correct this problem, up to and including re-installing Toast 11. With odd results. I burnt two films to a DVD+RW using the above process and it worked fine. Film 1 Video Tracks: Generic MPEG-4, 1280 × 720, 23.976 fps, 2.94 Mbps Audio Tracks: AC3, 48 kHz, 384 kbps Film 2 Video Tracks: H.264, 1920 × 1080, 23.976 fps, 2.37 Mbps Audio Tracks: (ac-3), 640 kbps Then when using the same process again to burn some other films, it failed with an unreadable DVD. I'm perplexed as to what's going on. I think it's either similiar too or thee same issue as above. Any information gratefully received.
