Burning Mp2 Files To Blu-Ray

Question

I have mp2 videos that I want to burn onto a Blu-ray disk because the duration exceeds 1 hour. I have tried this several times and get an error at the end of the "burn image file" process saying there was a problem with the 'write format'.

 

I selected blu-ray as the (mydvd) format.

 

What am I doing wrong?

 

I am running Creator 2010 Pro on XP Pro.

 

Thanks!

I assume that you have a blu-ray burner and disc?

 

How long is the project?

How LONG is the project?

 

File Size is meaningless.

 

You mentioned "exceeds 1 hour". But a 25 GB BD can hold from 4:00 to 6:24 depending on the Quality you select.

 

Also you really need to detail what you are doing step by step along with settings. That way we get a clearer picture of what you are seeing ;)

Sorry Jim... here is what I did:

 

Selected Mydvd

Selected Blu-Ray

Selected menu style

Added two MP2 files inserted as one movie

Movie length is 1:26:51

Project Setting: Blu-ray authoring, HQ with AVC video format

Saved MYDVD project

Created Image file

 

When I was almost at the end of burning the image file I received the ‘write format error’.

 

 

Appreciate your time and patience....

Of course that should work!!! :(

 

Instead of burning directly to disc, try burning a Folder set instead.

 

If that completes OK, use Burn Data Disc and simply drag the Folder set into the BDD project window. Add a Disc Label if you like and Burn.

 

Don't worry about any settings, BDD will recognize a BD burn and format it accordingly ;)

Thank you so much for your attention to this matter. When you say burn it to a folder, do you mean burn an image file? If yes, I tried that... no luck. It is a new burner, I am wondering if it could be defective???

 

Thanks again!

 

Burning to folder set or image file are two different selection on the Burn window page

 

Do you mean it fails already when you create the image file? Do you have the "burn to disc" checkbox cleared? If "yes" to both questions then the problem is not with the burner since no burning would be going on at this point.

I think I have solved the problem, so I thought I'd share.... It seems as if the 'write format' error was caused by lack of disk space. I think additional disk space (2x the size of the orginial video) is needed on a temporary basis. When I tested using a smaller video file it worked - no errors! So a freed up a ton of space and ran a much bigger job (5 video files, chapters, etc..) it worked. I am burning the image file now - if you don't hear back from me it worked! Thank you once again for helping me troubleshoot this problem.
