Disc Fails To Play On Standard Blu-Ray Player

Question

I have ripped several commercial blu-ray discs to my computer using the Copy function in Toast Titanium 11 (Disc Copy -> Disc Image). The movies play fine on my computer from the disc images. However, when I burn the disc images to blu-ray discs (again using the Copy function), they do not play on my TV/blu-ray player. In each case the disc is recognized upon insert, plays for about 10 seconds, then stops and fails to respond to any further operation. No picture ever appears. The only relevant setting I could find in Toast was TV Standard under Preferences/Video, which is correctly set to NTSC. Again, the discs play fine on my computer using an external blu-ray player.

 

I should also add that using the Video function I have been able to successfully create AVCHD and blu-ray discs from QuickTime files (no menus). Both types of discs play flawlessly on my TV/blu-ray player. This makes me suspect that perhaps the problem is related to the file structure/menus on the movie discs not being translated correctly for playback on standard blu-ray players.

 

Has anyone else run into this problem? Any thoughts would be appreciated.

If those are commercial, copyrighted bluray discs then what you are doing is illegal and no discussion of that is allowed on these forums.

THESE ARE BLU-RAY DISCS THAT I OWN (I.E. BOUGHT AND PAID FOR) AND I WAS SIMPLY TRYING TO CREATE BACKUP COPIES FOR PERSONAL USE IN CASE THE ORIGINALS GET DAMAGED!!! THIS HAS IN FACT HAPPENED TO ME ON MORE THAN ONE OCCASION.

 

May I suggest that in the future you refrain from making inane comments based on unwarranted assumptions, especially when they do not address the question being asked.

Actually ... in an unhelpful sort of way you may have unwittingly addressed my question. On further investigation, it appears that Toast generally fails to burn copyrighted material. Never mind that in some countries (mine included) it is not only perfectly legal to make backups of commercial, copyrighted media, but it's even permissible to convert the said media to different formats for playback on other devices (strictly for personal use of course!). So I guess I've got my answer after all.

I would suggest that you watch your tone when seeking help. Toastee has been a great help to many frustrated users. The boxed retail version have always had a disclaimer that Toast does not copy protected material and I am sure this is on the digital download route as well. If one knows the right workflow, many commercial dvd/ blu-rays can be backed up using Toast. I could PM with the workflow, but I won't. You can search google to find the info, and remember to be nicer to people in the future to people trying to help.

The poster was not "trying to help". He simply made an accusation based on some completely unfounded assumptions. His comment was uncalled for, not to mention plain wrong based on the copyright laws in my country. So my original reply stands. In any case, I found a workaround to my problem and will not be wasting my time on this forum in the future.
