Getting "error - 50" Whenever Burning Video Disc

Question

On my first BluRay video disc effort, I received a "99%" hang-up error with Toast. I was able to crash the program and work around that, and the BluRay disc itself appears okay. Now, and ever after, consistently I'm receiving a "error - 50" (Mac disc type error) whenever I try to burn another.

 

System specs: Toast 11 w/BluRay plugin. Mac OS 10.5.8. Dual Quad Core 2.8 GHz Intel Xeon tower. 10G installed RAM.

 

This is completely ridiculous. I've paid a lot of money for software that clearly, clearly doesn't work.

Puzzling. I presume you've totally shut down the Mac, waited a bit and restarted. Do you have Disk Warrior? It may be a good time to run that or at least use the disk repair feature of Disk Utility. If you are using Toast 11.1 (1072) do you have an earlier version available such as 11.0.6 or 11.0.4? If so, you might give those a try.

 

You may already be doing this but it is a good idea to choose Save as Disc Image instead of clicking the burn button. When that is finished select the resulting .toast file with the Image File setting in the Toast Copy window to burn your disc.

 

Sorry that I don't know what is causing this error on your Mac. If the Blu-ray burner is internal and you have multiple internal optical drives there can be a bus conflict which requires jumpers to be set so one is slave and the other is master. That's something you might check.

Yes.

 

Since then, I've also installed Toast 11.1 update, then re-installed the BluRay plugin. As verified by Apple's Activity Monitor, NOW the program locks up (stops responding to the OS) very shortly after prompting me for the "disc name", just PRIOR to beginning the encoding process upon pressing "record".

 

Completely locks up. No response, sometimes won't even force quit.

 

Toast 11/11.1, licensed (of course), with properly installed/licensed BluRay plugin

Mac OS 10.5.8

Mac Pro 2x2.8 GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon

10G RAM installed

wireless internet connection running in background

'jumpers', on a MAC?

 

haven't heard of this since SCSI, though if you're aware of anywhere that instructions exist, a link would be awesome...

I found this link by Googling. It mentions that both drives can be set for "cable select" or one can be set for master and the other for slave.
