How To Burn/copy Two Disc Image Files Together On A Blu Ray

Question

I wonder how difficult this can be (or how stupid I can be :( ) I have made two disc images of iMovie projects and I want to burn them on a single (empty) Blu ray disc. If I import (drag and drop ) the second disc file (extension: .toast) to this window the first file disappears.

I want to see both files in this window before pushing the Copy button.

 

What is the right procedure? ( I checked the tutorials and the manual but couldn't find the answer)

 

I will appreciate an experienced user's input (I am a complete beginner) because I am stuck.

Yes I did use video (from the main buttons on top) and then I selected Blu Ray with the slide (arrow) button. As destination I selected disc image of course.

 

BTW I managed already to burn a blu ray disc 'from' a single disc image (with the Copy button on top of the roxio screen). But now I have no idea how to get 2 disc images in the left window for copying on a blu ray disc.

A disc image is a image of the disc. You can't burn two disc's images to one disc.

 

You can if space allows use both videos and master them as one disc image and burn that to disc.

The way to get the videos from two Blu-ray video disc images onto one Blu-ray disc is to first mount both disc images. In the Finder open the directory of the mounted Blu-ray disc and locate the .mts file that is the video. In Toast select Blu-ray video in the Video window. Drag the .mts video files from the Finder into the Toast window. Prepare the menu the way you want and click the Burn button. Toast should report that it is multiplexing (not encoding) the video as it is making the new Blu-ray disc.

 

You also could, if you want, choose Save as Disc Image to create a new disc image file. This can be burned to disc using the Image File setting in the Toast Copy window.

I managed to make a single disc image of both project. I followed 'the procedure for dummies' from cdanteek or probably what tsantee explained in his last phase. I will try the more sophisticated approach from tsantee the next time.

 

thanks guys!

Sorry experts I was too optimistic and I still need some advice. I checked this morning the Blu ray disc. Everything works fine on my Philips BDP 9600, but not on my Denon 2500 BT.

 

I burned the disc image I made from both projects (drag and drop the QT HD movies in my Toast window to make ONE disc image) on Verbatim BD-R disc. But on my Denon after watching the first movie a blue screen appears with the titles of both movies. When I scroll to the second movie (a yellow dot shows up in front go the title) and I push play or OK the second movie is not playing. On my Philips it does.

 

My question: is it better to choose a more solid/different approach (in order that the BD is less sensitive in respect to the Blu Ray player) Is it better to make a Menu with Toast? (I just put the two movies together without bothering about a Menu set up/structure)

 

thanks in advance.

I tried to follow the procedure from Tsantee. I drag and drop the disc image in the Toast window and push the MOUNT button (A window is popping up telling that the computer cannot read this disc).

I go to Finder, I see a disc icon with the name of the movie I did mount. Then I tried to find the file with extension .mts. I found .m2ts files (I guess that's what you mean). Do I have to drag/drop also the .m2ts file with only the title (kind of menu screen made by Toast with the title) into my Toast window? This time I am going to use the Toast Menu facilities (see above).

 

thanks step by step in about 5- 10 years I will be an expert myself :)

Hi Tsantee,

 

Hopefully you (o another expert) has still some time to look into this?:

 

I found the right files (they are called .m2ts)?

 

The simple method: making one disc image from both movies was not completely successful (not all BD players are playing the movies after burning the disc)

 

Is it better to skip disc image and use VIDEO from the menu, drag/drop there the two QT HD movies (after conversion of the iMovie projects) into the Toast window

but then using the Option: Menu Style to make a playback DVD or BD menu. I got stuck there because I don't know how to edit the text op the Menu buttons (I put two of them one for each movie, by default those buttons are called "my movie") I started a thread about this issue but apparently nobody can tell me if Toast is offering this functionality (like iDVD).

 

thank a lot guys

As you probably figured out I've been on vacation for a week. The advantage of using the .m2ts file instead of the QuickTime file is that it is already encoded for Blu-ray disc. That should save you the time to have it encoded again from the QuickTime file. Otherwise it doesn't matter.

 

Several users are reporting that their Blu-ray players only play the first video on a Toast-created Blu-ray disc. This appears to be specific to certain players. It may be that Roxio will find a solution in a future update. Also, Blu-ray player manufacturers often issue firmware updates for their players. Be sure yours has the latest firmware update. That may solve the problem.
