Recover Data From Failed Blu-Ray Burn





We just got toast 11, and was using it to burn 2 hours of a wedding video to a blu ray. Left it overnight since it would be a long transcode, came back in the morning to find it had stalled at 99% (which is supposed to be a common bug, I'm updating it as we speak). When I try to load the disc into a player or in the computer it sees it as a blank disc, but looking at it it's obviously burned all the way trough.


Since I opened and exited the program, it deleted all the encodes it had done, but now I'm pressed with time, the person I was doing the disc for leaves the country today and wanted to take the video with him, so I don't really have time for another full reencode that will take hours. Is there any way I could recover the data from the unfinished burn so I could burn it to a different blu-ray to see if it would work?.


I'm on OSX but have access to windows if needed.

The quickest thing to do is burn the source video as a data disc using the DVD-Rom (UDF) setting in the Data window. That way the person has the video to play on a computer as long as it has a Blu-ray drive. Something else you could try is to choose Disc Copy in the Toast Copy window and then insert the burned Blu-ray disc. Maybe Toast will be able to mount the disc even though Apple's OS failed to do so. If that did work you could choose Save as Disc Image and then burn the resulting .toast file to a new Blu-ray disc using the Image File setting in the Toast Copy window.
