Couldn't Set Up The Track For Writing After Os X 10.9 Upgrade. Help Please!

Question

I've been burning blu rays using toast titanium 11(version 11.1) with the blu ray plugin for several months with no problems whatsoever. I would drag and drop a ripped blu ray file (to back up) in the blu ray section in toast, choose my options then hit burn. It would take around two to three hours encoding the file and then the burning process would began. After a hr or so I'd have my completed blu ray.

Last week I upgraded to OS X 10.9 Maverick. Yesterday (Sunday) I tried to burn a blu ray. I follow my normal procedures. Dropped a ripped file in the blu ray window in the blu ray section of toast and hit burn. The encoding process began as usual, but when it was done encoding it wouldn't start burning to disc. Instead the message "couldn't set up the track for writing" popped up. I tried several other blank blu rays and tried encoding the file again but it would always stop after the encode was done and say couldn't set up the track for writing. I've tried to burn other movie files that I've burned before but still get the same message after the encode.

I burned a dvd this morning with my dvd software using same burner so I know the burner's working. Ive read that other people have been having various problems with toast since the Maverick upgrade. I can't find any current post with my exact problem. I will greatly appreciate anyones help and opinions. Thank You.

I found a solution thanks to your suggestion Tsantee. Here is the route I took. There might be another (easier) way to do this but, every time I try a new method that fails I lose a blu ray disc. I've already lose three to troubleshooting. Heres my steps.

First I saved my ripped file as a disc image using the blu ray section in Toast. I then selected the copy section in Toast and then choose Image file in the drop down menu. Add the .toast file to the copy window. When you add the file you will be presented with the option to mount the file. Click mount the file. You my have to ok it and enter your password. The mounted disc will now appear on your desktop.

Next go back to the blu ray section of Toast and choose BDMV Folder from the drop down menu. Open the mounted disc and drag the BDMV file to the Toast window. Hit Burn. It burned my blu ray disc with no problem.

I just viewed the blu ray I burned using the above method. The video quality and audio is low. I guess the above method isn't the way to go. If I figure out a method that works i'll post it later. #$^@. After spending all that money on Toast Titanium and the blu ray plugin I wish customer service was better and I could contact someone at roxio in realtime. Heres hoping for the update that will never come.

I burned another blu-ray trying Tsantee suggestion. I saved my ripped file as a disc image,Then I burned the resulting .toast file to disc using the Image File setting in the Toast Copy window. The video looked the same as the one I burned using the method I described earlier. I had initially watched both videos at close range on my 32 in LCD in my bedroom. I then played them on my larger, higher quality plasma. Now they look like my other blu-rays. The audio is still low, but after I watched the source blu-ray movie again I noticed that it's audio volume is also low leading to my copies having lower audio. I guess either method works. I'll be using the one I described in this post. I hope my experiences with this problem helps anyone in the same boat.
