10.0.2 problems burning blu-ray

Question

hi i'm using toast titanium 10.0.2 with my macbook pro (one before unibody). I have the 8600m gs videocard with 4gb of ram and a 2.6 core two duo processor. When i try to burn an mkv file to a blu-ray disc using my lg ggw-h20l (connected through esata, recognized), toast hangs on 'waiting', and will not pass that phase. i'm using a ritek 25gb bd-r that is recognized by toast as a blank bd-r disc. does anyone have any suggestions on why this is happening?

I'm presuming you have an eSata express card. Have you tried connecting the Blu-Ray drive via USB? I wonder if the problem is that Toast doesn't work properly with drives connected to an express card.

 

You probably should submit customer service request with Roxio because of your rather unusual configuration.

ok so i left it on and it eventually started going.. the encode is taking forever, though! about 20% in 12 hours. anyway that was ok until my computer froze and needed a restart 83% through !@#$%^&*. (i paused a few times to go to class and such). anyway is there anything i can do to make this go faster? should i encode the video in a different program (handbrake, cause visualhub doesn't support 5.1)? the file size is about 20 gb with 48000 kbps video and 5.1 sound. i have perian installed, but not flip4mac.

 

i mean 48000 hz

I don't have any experience with MKV video files but I've read that they are a huge pain especially on Macs. You asked if there are other applications you might use. My understanding is that MPEG Streamclip can convert them to a more Mac-friendly format and there is another called Mac MKV Converter. Since I have no experience with MKV files I cannot recommend either application for this purpose based on personal knowledge.
