No Menu On Blu-Ray Disc

Question

I selected the Splash menu and edited the names of the three videos. The burned blu-ray has no menu, just a black screen, and the video titles show as time length rather than names.

In the edit section there are three info boxes. How do I control which box is displayed on the menu? Also, why did I not get the menu?

Well, I tried the Aurora Blu-ray Player and I at least got the title of the disc. But the video titles are still shown as length of time for each video. Guess the next step is to pick up a blu-ray player for the TV and see if the menu shows there. Question is, will it work the same on a multitude of blu-ray players?

You can see the menu pages individually and inactive using Roxio Video Player on your Mac. There is a button in the play bar area which allows selecting individual titles. The one (or ones) at the bottom will bring up a menu page. I don't know why Blu-ray video menus don't appear and work on the Mac as they do with a Blu-ray disc player. It may have something to do with Apple's decision not to support Blu-ray video playback on the Mac OS.

 

Oh, if you don't know, Roxio Video Player is accessed under Toast's Utilities menu.

I tried playing the BD-R that I burned and referred to in my original post, in a Sony blu-ray player. It did not play. I then inserted this disc into my iMac again, and now it is not being recognized and ejects. Why would that happen? (playing surface looks good BTW)

Okay, I guess the reason I don't get the player screen is because iMac is not recognizing the burned BD-R's. Both BD-R's I burned and played or tried to play in the Sony blu-ray player will not work now in the iMac. As they did prior. The single video disc does play in the Sony, but not the one with three videos.

Okay, now I just inserted a burned BD-R data disc into iMac that I have used before, and that was not played in the Sony player, and iMac is not recognizing it. I restarted iMac, still no go. Why would iMac suddenly stop recognizing burned BD-R?

I'm sorry but I just don't know. It seems you're doing everything you can do. There was a post from someone that is having trouble with a Sony Blu-ray player when he burns two or more titles to a disc, but not when there is only one title. Weird things seem to be happening. I've had my Mac present a window saying the disc was a format that it didn't recognize and asking if I wanted to eject it or ignore it. I clicked ignore. Somehow I was still able to mount it. Maybe I used Disk Utility, or maybe Toast's Copy window was able to mount it. You've put in a lot of time on something that was simply supposed to work. I'm sorry. I wish I had the answer.

Re: the issue of the Sony player not playing BD-R discs with more than one video, is that something Toast should be looking at and possibly rectifying? Should I report this somewhere? The Sony Player is model BDP-S1100, serial S011022895D

Okay, I just burned three videos onto a BD-R, but using NO menu. It plays fine in the Sony player.

 

AND I finally realized that I was using the external reader/writer to play the BD-R's in my iMac..... NOT the iMac drive! And I got the Roxio Video Player working too. Sorry about this issue coming up. Dang, I think my brain cells are going the way of my YKW cells. :-)

 

Thanks for all your help tsantee, I really appreciate it.

BTW, the three video BD-R also played in the Roxio Video Player, albeit quite choppy & jerky. The "video" was a slideshow type, with photo prints sliding into view. The photos all came in with a herky-jerky motion. BUT, it did play nicely with the Sony player & TV and that's important.

I've just burned 3 blu-rays, each containing 9 episodes of a show already-compressed to .264 and .ac3, with different menus: 'Splash 16x9', 'Arabesque 16x9', and a heavily-customized version of Splash edited in Photoshop. In each case, it appeared the menu would work, and when I look at the last element in the resulting disc image using Roxio Video Player, it indeed is a two frame movie of the menus.

 

But on my PS3, which I use as a blu-ray player (as do tons of other people), shows the menu as a black screen. It's navigable blind, but never visible. This problem is driving me nuts.

 

Any help or information would be appreciated. As far as I can tell, I'm running into a serious bug.

I don't know what to do about this. I don't have a PS3 so I can't troubleshoot it. Are you running Toast 11.1 (1072)? The only variable I can think of that you have control over is to try a different brand of Blu-ray media. As a test you could make a short Blu-ray disc that you burn to DVD media. That might indicate whether using different discs makes any difference.
