Question

Hi just attempting to burn my first blu-ray disc without success so far..... I have an Intel mac pro 2 x 2.66 Ghz Dual Core with 6 gb memory using Toast 10 pro and burning from a blu-ray drive HL-DT-ST BD-RE WH10LS30.

I am putting 3 videos 1hr , 1hr 5min and 15min using all but 300mb or so capacity on to a verbatim 25gb BD-R after about 7 8 hrs I get an error message (Sense Key = Medium Error & Sense code = 0 X 7 , 0 X 3) Do any of you guys know what I am doing wrong? any help will be greatly appreacaited.

Try choosing Save as Disc Image and then burn the disc image using the Image File setting in the Copy window. Also check that your Blu-ray drive's firmware is up to date. One possibility is the drive has gone to sleep during the encoding period and isn't ready to start writing when Toast begins sending the data. That's why saving as a disc image first might help. A medium error is typically an incompatibility between the drive's firmware and the disc used but that shouldn't be a concern with Verbatim media.

Sorry but but you've tried everything I can suggest. It sounds like you nearly had a clean burn with the multiple titles but apparently came too close to the maximum allowable space. I don't know what the actual capacity of a 25 GB BD-R is. A 4.7 GB DVD is actually 4.38 GB, for instance. I would expect Toast to warn you that there isn't enough room before starting the burn, however. Did you try burning at a slower speed than Best (which is the fastest speed that the drive believes it can burn to that particular media)?

Hi I was burning at x2 I think it may be the burner.
