Closing Blu-Ray disc created in Creator

Question

The disk tool says that the disk is a multi session appendable disk but the closing utulity won't close it so it can be played. It keeps saying please insert disk to be closed.

I made the disk by using disk copy of a "open" Blu Ray dvd (18 gigs). I did the same thing using iso image and burn - it was ok. But how do I close the disk?

Thanks.

A little more about what you are trying to do. It seems like you are attempting to make a data disc from a Blu-Ray movie.

 

If you are trying to make a copy of a commercial disc, you can't.

 

Video discs are automatically closed. Date discs are not. Please, more information.

I was copying a BD disk that didn't have copy protection. For some reason the disc copy function didn't close the disk. As I said the disk tool said that the disk was open but it won't close it. It kept telling me that it was open but when I used the disk close function it would expell the disk and ask me to insert a disk that was closeable.

I got around the problem by making a iso image then burning that and it was then closed and played BUT how can I close the original copied disk. To me there is a problem (as usual) with the disc copy program.

I can think of 4 programs within the Suite you could “copy” with.

 

You never told us which one you tried to use???

 

I don’t have a BD burner so I can’t really test this! I suspect that only Disc Copy (the Home app program) can do it. Maybe VCC but I am not so sure???

 

Gary might know otherwise I would call Roxio and work directly with them!

 

Let us know.

 

I hope these are RE discs!

 

Also, you are vage as to if this is a commercial pressed disc or a burned disc...

Sorry for being so long getting back but I had a hell of a time logging back in.

I used Disk Copier to copy the disc with it going to a file on the hard drive first. When it finished copying the disk it DIDN't CLOSE the disk like it should. I havn't been able to close the disk since using any of the closing tools. They tell me that the disk is open but eject the disc when they try to close it.

I feel that the disk copier should have closed the disk like it has in previous versions of Roxio. The only difference is that this was a BD disk. I later ripped the disk using a iso file and burned it that way and it closed the disk. I now have a usless disk unless I can close it and is there a "BUG" in the disk copier?

Thanks.

Disc Copier? Are you using the Home app by clicking on the desktop icon?

I don't see what is so hard for you to understand.

I copied an unprotected disc ( 25 gig) with "copy disc" from the "Home" menu and it didn't close the darn thing .

I tried using "Finalize disc" from the "Home" menu and it recognizes the disc but ejects it when it tries to close it. I did notice that it only asks for a dvd or cd not a Bd disk. The "get disk information - from the Home menu says " disk type BD-R Open, Multisession, Data Appendable (--------name).

Nuber of tracks 3

etc.

I can't get the disk finalized so I cant play it.

Is there a fault (obviously) with copy disc in that it didn't close the disc after copying it?

I, as I said finaly made an ISO file from the original disc and burned it and it closed automatically and runs well.

HOW DO I CLOSE THE DARN DISC using ROXIO?

I have the BD plug in as well - for your info.

Thanks.

I'm not sure what you are doing but that message indicates that you are making a data disc. Even if you close it, it will not play on a DVD player. Is the original disc a data disc? Will it play on your home DVD player?

 

Video Copy and Convert is the preferred method to copy a Video disc.

 

Unfortunately you seem to be hung up on "closing the disc" and seem to unwilling to listen to comments and suggestions.

1. If using "Copy Disc" option, any target disc will be finalized automatically.

2. Since you are using BD-R, am not really sure what happened there.

3. Next time, when in Disc Copy, click on "options" and check on "I want to Close the DVD" under "Write once DVD compatibility" (not sure if this will actually work for BD)

Please - Digital Guru - read what I said not what you want to see. I copied using the “Copy Disc" option and I expected it to "close" the disc upon completion - like Roxio has in past versions.

IT WAS NOT A DATA DISC COPY!!!

Digital Master: Thanks for your reading my problem. I didn't look for options and don't want to waste another blank to see if they - the options - are there. I thought those options were only in Creator Classic.

Oh yea I have been using Easy CD creator since version 2 (owned by Corel) and was a beta tester up to version 6 when most of us quit because Roxio would release product that was still full of posted bugs and not fix them till there were updates and the poor customers were puling their hair out. I felt the last "good" version was 7.5.

Since I have gone to BD I thought I would try it again. I also thought that with 4 updates these problems would be noted and “fixed”. I will try again when blanks get cheaper and see if I created the problem. For now I will rip to an ISO copy and burn it since the disc closes and plays in all my players and software.

The disc I copied and the one I created from an ISO “look” the same in explorer but all DVD players software and players say that it is an unrecognized format and won’t play.

Anyway, thanks for your feedback.

Yep. For now .ISO would be a way to go. At times, I have noticed that a burn would not complete on certain brand of media while burning using a ISO will overcome such issue at times. Just wondering what brand of media are you using. I have had successes with TDK most of the time.

If you know anything about the Roxio suites, which it doesn't look like the case with you, you would know that the last version that had Disc Copier, was Easy Media Creator 9.

 

That is the program you said you used, and that is why Gary questioned you. :blink:

Sorry to be so difficult but my home page - frequent tasks says Copy Disc.

I realize that the older versions used disc copy. Do any of you have a bd burner?

Yes I would like to closed the disc that didn't close so that it is not a $11.00 coaster.

Now I am going to try a double layer BD disc.

Is the 2010 version of Roxio any better?

There is no importance on the disc he is making, it's the end proccess what's being impossible to complete. After you burn the CD, DVD or BRay, by default most programs leave the disc open in a registration of sessions, that way you can keep filling it until you deplete it. The problems is that until it closes the media is not readable by any other device than the writter, not only the bdplayers wont play the videos but also other computer bd-r devices will not be abble to display the content. There for, is of most importance to be abble to close the discs at any given point. The tool in the software exists, but is out dated, it does not let BluRay media to close, only DVDs and CDs. With the recent come out of discs M, DL-BluRay
and UHD in the horizon it feels like a poor service.

I purchase a licence for the last software last year, 2020. The version is 14.0.49 and very much believe that is the same that "spine" is talking about, it still stands for "Roxio Easy CD and DVD Burnirning" I can read the same thing "Disc Copy" upon the entry layout of the software sold on the 2020 version.

Last note: when marking preferences disc at once and the option close the disc explicit check. After you run the tool it still says "open, multisesion".

Mr Rodriguez,

Firstly, you have joined a conversation which finished 12 years ago.   Spine, the original poster, has not been here for at least 8 years.   Posting to a long dead thread is called "necro-posting" and is not useful nor encouraged.

Secondly, this forum is for Creator 2009.  You have a cut-down reduced-function version of Creator NXT which came out around 2013, so there's quite a difference between your software and Creator 2009.  Your software is known as the "Redbox version" and there is a forum for that software here (link) which might be helpful for you.   (The current Redbox is version 20)

I think that if you want to handle BluRay discs you will need a full version of Creator NXT 8 (not cut-down) and probably will also need to buy the Blu-Ray add-on as well.  You should check with Roxio sales as to what you need and what it can do.

Brendon
