Can't make working Blu-Ray discs


JeremyK

Question

I installed DVDit Pro HD yesterday. I have a Sony BWU-100A burner and a Sony BDP-S1 player.

 

I tried to make a disc with two movies with audio and a menu. That didn't work, so I tried to go as simple as possible (one movie, no menu), but I'm getting the same errors...

 

Here's what I did:

1) I open DVDit and start a new project: NTSC, Widescreen.

2) On the bottom of the screen, I select BD-25 from the pull down menu (instead of DVD-9).

3) I look in project settings and everywhere else for some way to tell the program that this is a blu-ray project instead of a DVD project, but I can't find anything.

4) I switch to the Media tab on the Pallette and import my media: 1920x1080i, 29.97fps, ~24to28mbps VBR, m2v file, encoded with Apple Compressor. It's a little over a minute long. I get a dialog box saying my file is appears "not to be DVD compliant." I tell it to import anyway and transcode if need be.

5) I drag the media to the titles section in the Project. I check that it automatically is set as First Play and then under Movie Attributes I set the End Action to play to Movie 1 (the same movie) so that it will loop.

6) I simulate the disc from First Play, it works just fine.

7) I put a Verbatim BD-R in the burner and select Burn Disc from the Burn menu. I select Blu-ray from the disc type pull-down, burn from current project, BDRW BWU-100A as the device, 1 copy, write speed: auto. I click OK and it burns the disc.

 

After it finishes burning, I pop the disc back in. On the disc are folders called AACS, BDMV and CERTIFICATE - each with other folders and/or files inside.

 

I open Cyberlink PowerDVD, press play and get an "A disc with unsupported format in drive D" error message. If I put it in the Sony player, I get a message that says "Cannot play this disc."

 

So....what am I doing wrong? Is there a step I'm missing? I can't afford to make any more coasters!

Can you post the actual settings that you used to create the file? This would help.

File Extension: m2v

Video Encoder

Format: M2V

Width: 1920

Height: 1080

Pixel aspect ratio: square

Crop: None

Frame rate: 29.97

Frame Controls:

Retiming: Nearest Frame

Resize Filter: Linear Filter

Deinterlace Filter: Line Averaging

Adaptive Details: On

Antialias: 0

Detail Level: 0

Field Output: Same as Source

Aspect ratio: 16:9

Field dominance: Top first

Average data rate: 21.1 (Mbps)

1 Pass VBR enabled

Maximum data rate: 25 (Mbps)

High quality

Best motion estimation

Closed GOP Size: 15, Structure: IBBP

 

It sounds as if you are having it to reencode. Can you bring in the original QT file into DVDITHDPRO?

If so, let the programs encoder do the encode. See if that works.

...

If it says it is not "DVD" compliant then it should be bluray. It would say "not bluray compliant."

I'm not sure if its reencoding or not. Like you said, it didn't say "not bluray compliant." Is there anyway to tell for certain whether you DVDit thinks your file is good to go for bluray or not?

 

Also, the Cyberlink that you have is it the updated version or the one on the install disc?

I installed Cyberlink off the disc. It's PowerDVD 6.6 BD Edition. After reading this post I found cyberlinks website and found a patch for 6.6. After installing, it's not giving me that error anymore but now it says my video driver is not up to spec. I downloaded their BD diagnostic tool and I guess my PC is not up to spec processor and graphics card wise for playing back BD discs. I'm going to try installing the drive on one of the better PCs around here and see if I can't get it to work. So, I guess that kinda answers that question for now.

 

I do not think that the BDP-SP1 is capable of playing BDMV files only BDAV.

If you can take it to a store with a panasonic, pioneer elite, or the original Samsung player , you can at least try it on a known player that works.

So it's possible that my discs are fine, but none of the players I have will play it. Anybody have any idea when this is going to be resolved? I need a solution that's going to work on all players.

I think you'll need to upgrade (not update, same with Power Producer 4 :angry: for me to get a working version that the PS3 would play ).

 

Yes, you could have a disk that would work on certain machines. WE ALL would like for the players to be more uniform and support \BDMV! The \BDAV format is supposed to be supported by all.

sounds like you did get a successful burn. compatability with all players...maybe 6 months. for now, the Panasonic, Pioneer and unmodified 1st gen Samsung will play that disc just fine. PowerDVD BD will as well, if your computer has the minimum requirements for PowerDVD.

I just got back from Ultimate Electronics and was able to test both discs I made in their Panasonic player. Both, the one with the menu and the one without, worked fine.

 

I'm still interested in knowing if there's a way to tell if my video assets are actually BD complaint or not. If it says 'not DVD compliant' but makes no mention about blu ray compliance, is it safe to assume it is BD compliant and not going to transcode the asset?

 

Thanks for the information and help!

That's right. if the warning does not say that the MPEG-2 file is "not Blu-ray compliant" it should just pass through. Can you please post your Compressor settings in another posting? Now we have users getting legal streams from Adobe Premier, TMPEG, Procoder and Compressor....a nice range of encoding tools.

A couple of things:

 

1) Make sure you have the latest version of PowerDVD (which supports BD)

2) I don't think the Sony player will play your BD disk (there are alot of threads/messages about this) I believe only the Panasonic, Samsung (original firmware), and one other that will play \BDMV on BD-R/RE.

AACS???

 

When I build my projects there is no AACS folder. Have you selected copy protection in the settings? That can only work when replicating discs and so you cshoudln't use it. It may actually be the source of your problems.

 

Do I win cigar?

We have a problem with the forum folks. Web page not found after replying to post.

 

When you reply only press once or( as we can see in this thread) it gets ugly. Go back to your favourites link after you have pressed post (it will be there), don't hit back and post again.
