BD-R DL: Only layer0 plays back, then jumps to end of layer1

Recommended Posts

OK, this was my first BD-R DL burn. DVD+R DL disc's have always burned just fine. When ImgBurn failed to pop up a layer break dialog I assumed that layer breaks worked differently on BD-R DL discs and that ImgBurn would handle it automatically. And that's what assumption gets you!  :-(  Learn from my idiocy! ;-)

 

OS: Windows 7 Ultimate N 64bit with SP1

Optical Drive: HL-DT-ST-BD-RE (LG WH14NS40) ATA Device

ImgBurn: v2.5.8.0

Media: Verbatim BD-R DL 50GB 6X (White silkscreened label with blue writing)

Playback Software: MPC-HC (64bit) v1.7.10 (d911f14) build date Nov 14 2015 18:25:24

 

After burning, with no apparent errors in log, during playback, layer0 plays back just fine.  When it gets to the "layer break area," where it should start playing layer1, instead it skips to the end of layer1 and stops playback. The data is there as I can manually go back to that, "layer break area," and start playback of layer1. But of course it makes for an undesirable home cinema experience to say the least.

 

VLC v2.2.4 plays both layers back to back but there is a visual greying out at the "layer break area." I don't use VLC because I can't get AC3 audio with it. PowerDVD plays over the "layer break area," smooth as silk, but again I can't get AC3 Audio. MPC-HC is my preferred player because It uses AC3 Filter, which is a third party AC3 passing/encoding program. My receiver can't decode DTS audio, only AC3.  Why I have to use AC3 Filter to get 5.1 to my receiver via the SPDIF output on my MB is beyond me.  But I just have to have my 5.1.  ;-)  

 

Any knowledge on this subject would be greatly appreciated.  Is there some way to force ImgBurn to set up layer breaks with BD-R DL discs? Or should I look to the player software as the fix?

 

TIA!

 

 

Here is the log from the not failed, yet 'failed,' BD-R DL disc burn.

There's no method of doing anything to the layer break position on BD media, it is where it is and you just treat the discs as one giant layer.

 

As your drive appears to have verified the disc ok, I don't really know why MPC-HC is having an issue with reading what's on it.

 

Perhaps try making an ISO and mounting it in a virtual drive. See if it has the same issue when playing from that.

 

If it's fine, the issue must just be readability of the disc - try burning at 4x instead of 'MAX' (8x).

My experience with BD-R has been if you have playback issues of the kind you describe, where video is skipped to different positions, it's your drive being unable to read that kind of media properly.  For instance, I discovered the PS3 doesn't like Ritek BD-R after when I tried playing a BD-R of home movies, it skipped over the first title set entirely, which I had set to play before the main menu, and then skip directly to the main menu.  When I burned the same image to a Verbatim BD-R, the PS3 played it as it should have, playing the pre-menu title set first and then loading the menu.

 

 

If you can, you should try playing this disc in another drive or on another computer.  Or, as LUK said, try reading the disc to an image and mounting it as a virtual drive.  See if you can play it properly that way.
