Can't Burn With Mce Blu-ray Drive

Jim Elliott


I'm experiencing a frustrating problem with my MCE Blu-Ray burner for my G5 Power Mac. On paper it's a wonderful drive, and I'd love to burn BD video discs (that's why I bought the BD plugin for Toast 9). But whenever I try to do so, Toast gets started, and then quickly reports "The drive reported an error: Sense Key = MEDIUM ERROR, Sense Code = 0x10, INVALID BLOCK SIZE FOR COMMAND." And I have a coaster.


I have made sure the drive itself works, and the communication path: I can burn data Blu-Ray discs from the Finder just fine. But it never works in Toast. I'm running version 9.0.2 of Toast.


Help? Has anyone had success with this drive?

Medium error would generally indicate compatibility with particular brand/type of media. What brand/type of media are you using?


I tried it with both Memorex and Verbatim BD-RE discs. And now, I have upgraded to a Nehalem Xeon Mac Pro with a direct SATA connection to the MCE burner, and upgraded to Toast 10, and the exact problem still occurs. I can burn these discs just fine (as data) from Apple's Disk Utility, it is only Toast that has problems with them. I wish that either Apple would come out with BD-video burning software, Toast would get fixed, or even that Toast would gain the ability to create disk images compatible with Disk Utility, so I could render them in Toast and burn them successfully with Disk Utility.


For now, I am stuck and frustrated.
