About a week ago I was burning a single-layer BD-R disc. And shortly after I began the burn process I got a warning window that popped up. I don't remember the exact error message. But to the best of my recollection it was something like "Cannot interpet" or "Bad interpretation". I just don't know. 


Anyway, the software kept asking me if I would like to re-try (re-reading the bad sector I'm guessing) so I kept hitting re-try a few times. But after several re-try attempts I just said, "fuh-get-about-it" and had the ImgBurn software close the disc so I would have a successful yet very small partially burned BD-R.


I wanted to take the disc completely out of the burner in between these re-try requests and see if I could spot check the disc for stray dust particles and wipe it clean if necessary. But I was also afraid that the software might abort the burn completely and I would have nothing but a completely worthless BD-R.


So, my question is, can I physically eject a BD-R disc mid-burn (obviously during these pop-up window messages) and check it for stray dust particles and wipe it clean if necessary and re-insert the BD-R disc without causing the software to abort the current burn process?


I've burned so many single-layer BD-R discs successfully from Optical Quantum that I tend to believe this was my fault more than a defective disc. So, this is why I ask.


Thanks for reading!

I don't know, but I'd have to say no.  In fact, you could probably only eject the drive using the pin hole eject.  ImgBurn locks drives for exclusive access so nothing else can interfere with an operation.  Thus, an eject command shouldn't work at all.
