Problem With Bd-re Disc



On my very first attempt to burn a blu-ray disc, when Toast gets to the Formatting window, a message appears: "Couldn't set up the track for writing." I then tried to burn to a DVD-R disc and was somewhat successful. I'll address those problems at another time. The disc is a new Sony BD-RE. Do I need to change a setting somewhere?

I was able to do a quick erase. I tried again to burn to the BD-RE disc, but still got the same error message.

I don't know what dynamic writing is, but I want to burn a BD video project, not data. I've been practicing with a one minute long 1080p video which worked on a DVD-R as long as I set it for auto start. I ordered OSX.5, but I'm guessing that is not going to fix my problem.

I noticed in the system requirements posted by sknis that Toast 10 requires a Mac with Mac OS X v10.5.x. I'm using Mac OS X v10.4.11.x. Could that be my problem? I am able to get a DVD-R to burn a high definition video, but the menus don't work. If Leopard is required, this will be the first software I've installed that wouldn't work on Tiger.
