Just wondering if there's an option for choosing a menu when burning a Bluray in IMGBurn? I have several video files which I want to burn to the same Bluray disc and it would be good to have a menu in order to select which clips to play when the disc is inserted in a Bluray player connected to a TV. Ive read through the instructions on disc burning on this site but I don't see any mention of a menu.

There isn't, no.

You'd require an authoring program for that so you can make a proper BD Video disc.
Please don't PM me with questions that should be posted in the forum. I won't reply - Especially if you have post count of 0!!!

Something like vso convertXtoHD should do the trick.

Yeah, ConvertXToHD was what I was going to recommend, too.  I've used ConvertXToDVD for years for converting container files to DVD's.  ImgBurn only burns what you feed it.  So, something else has to create what you feed it first.

Thanks for the recommendation. I note that ConvertXToHD is paid software. Would there be any good, free alternatives? I just recently paid the same price (US$39.95) for Power2Go and found that software to be very buggy and it refused to burn my discs, claiming they weren't compatible.

The only free DVD conversion software I tried, I forget what iwas called, wasn't a viable option.  It said it was going to take about 3 hours to create what ConvertXToDVD created in 20 minutes.  And that was for creating DVD's, not Blu-Ray.  So, I don't know of any freeware options for creating Blu-Ray, sorry.

 

 

If Power2Go doesn't burn your discs, maybe you can take its output folder, I forget what they're called for Blu-Rays (For DVD it's VIDEO_TS.), and import it into a job in ImgBurn.  As long as Power2Go creates a playable folder, ImgBurn will set the necessary settings to make a playable Blu-Ray disc.

Hmmm....I can't recall Power2Go creating any folders. I'll have to check if there's a Save Project option - maybe that might create a folder. Power2Go can create a preview and that's where a rather strange and annoying problem occurs. One of the imported videos starts to play normally and then after a few seconds, it's replaced by another video of mine and then returns to the original video. It does this in both menu mode and full screen. Though I don't know if it's just a glitch with the preview or whether it'll present itself in the burned disc as well (definitely something that I don't want in the final product.)

Some sort of temporary file(s) is created before Power2Go burns to disc.  Either a temporary folder or an image file.  When it fails to burn and you close the application, these files are probably deleted.  So, you'd probably want to wait before closing the application and look for a temporary folder named whatever Blu-Ray has on it.  Insert a Blu-Ray movie into a drive and look at its folder structure.  The folder with the largest contents will be the Blu-Ray contents and that folder name will be what you want to search for.  Otherwise, Power2Go probably saves to an .ISO file that it tries to burn.  I don't use the application so I can't say how it behaves.  Only how it can possibly behave.

Yea it makes sense that Power2Go creates and least something prior to burning that can possibly be saved. Though's the chance that that fault in the preview could find itself into the burned disc.

 

Out of curiosity, is there a trial version of ConvertXToDVD? I notice there's a free download option (I was wondering if that was for a trial.)

Yes, there is a free, crippled trial.  The output has a watermark urging you to buy the software.  So, it's relatively useless for doing anything other than trying it out.  You can't really keep the discs it makes.  At least, that's the way it used to be years ago.  I'm guessing it is still that way.  Why would they let you create perfect discs?  You could always image your hard drive before installing the software, install it, and get a free trial.  Then, just restore your image and repeat the process every time you wanted to make a DVD.  So, I'm sure they still have it set up that way so you can't take advantage of that.

 

 

You can at least give it a shot and see if you like what it does and if it does what you want.  I'm guessing ConvertXToHD has the same trial setup as ConvertXToDVD.  I've never used ConvertXToHD, so I can't say for sure.

Yea I just want to give it a try first to see if it's more reliable and trouble-free compared to Power2Go. So I don't mind watermarks etc. I'll also use a rewritable Bluray disc.

Now, if ConvertXToHD works the same way that ConvertXToDVD does, I can definitely tell you how that works.  It offers the options of creating a VIDEO_TS folder to hard disk you can burn with ImgBurn and the option to burn directly to the disc for you.  I think there's even an option to save as an .ISO file that you can burn with ImgBurn later.
