blu ray

Recommended Posts

Just a few short questions. First of all does anybody know why when I load my "BDMV" file to the build mode on "Write files/folders to Disc", in the information tab I get nothing, nothing regesters in that tab? I can burn the file though & when I do it burns all the way except when I try to play it in my stand alone Blu Ray player (Sharp BD HP20),with the latest firmware update in it as well, it does not play, I get the message "Cannot play this disc" Is it the player or me,lol. I am ripping the files with anydvd hd v6.4.6.8. I am using a LG GBW-H20L when burning & I am using BD-RE by Memorex. Also when I look at my files on my desktop in my "Stream folder" located inside my "BDMV" folder the files read MPEG-2 Transport Stream instead of M2ts, but when I play the files on my desktop when using Powerdvd in the player itself the file reads as it is playing M2ts, weird or what? Can anybody shed some light on this subject. Thank you to all in advance. Also I am a newbe to this whole Blu-ray thing.

ok so what do you see on the disc when you first open it up?

 

Just a BDMV folder and a CERTIFICATE one?

 

Won't PowerDVD play it?

Yes I see a BDMV Folder & a CERTIFICATE folder (which was generated after Imgburn burn it to the disc) & yes it plays on powerdvd but not on my stand alone BD player.

Also would it matter that my hard drive is set at FAT32 as I see some other people have theirs alocated to FAT ?

Ideally your machine should be using NTFS, not FAT or FAT32.

 

My bad I just doubled checked my "C" drive & it is set at NTFS, so do you think it is my stand alone BD player or did you see something in the burn log that caught your eye?

Have you tried playing this disc on other bluray players? Like a friend's PS3 for example?

No you think it might be the player though? Also how do I enable 'FastWrite' in the settings so that ImgBurn will burn my disc faster than 1x , because i set it at 2x but it still burns at 1x

Thank you, but does anybody still think it's the player or the media? any help at this point would be very appreciated.

It's impossible to say until you've tried a few different discs (with different dyes / MID's).

 

If none of them work then it's probably the player.

 

If some discs work and some don't then it's probably the discs (and a little bit of the player in that it doesn't support many dyes / MID's)

Just finshed reading up on the dyes & it turns out that Pioneer and Mitsubishi have developed a method of creating recordable Blu-ray discs using an organic dye, which will significantly reduce the cost of manufacturing the high-definition media format.There will be a cut in costs as the new discs can be manufactured on modified CD and DVD production lines whereas, previously, BD-R discs could only be produced using inorganic dyes that required completely new manufacturing facilities.The unfortunate catch is that existing Blu-ray players will not be able to read the new discs, although it

This is from your log, and, as you can see, your disc uses Ritek dye. I'd try with Verbatim media :)

Thanks so much, I'm on my way to go out & by some Verbatim BR-Re & a new player to try to elimate this problem & solve it once & for all. The good news is once I figure it out I can return to player (thanks Best Buy) lol. I will be sure to post my findings when I'm done.

K here goes nothing, I bought the Verbatim BD-RE disc & it worked in my borrowed Samsung BD-P1500 player no problem. Tried my Memorex burned disc as well in the player & to my suprise it played. So I tried the Verbatim BD-RE in my Sharp BD-HP20 & it didn't work :( & neither did the Memorex BR-RE. So my conclusion is that Sharp sucks when it comes to stand alone BD players. Don't buy sharp. Oh btw here is my burn log from the Verbatim BD-RE, hope somebody can learn from this, my only hope is that Sharp has a firmware update that will fix this problem sooner than later !!!!

Is Imgburn able to change the booktype on BR-R/RE discs to BD-Rom? (I thought the op might have this problem)

Because most SA players (like my Sammy 1400, won't play these discs, according to the manual)

 

Will future releases of Imgburn have greater support for Blu-ray ?

I'm not aware of any booktype commands for BD media.

 

The drives need to support it before a program can make it happen.

Thanks Lightning.

 

Most SA players don't play BD-R/RE discs, so making backups of movies, at this point, is a no-go for most of us.

 

Edit : Interestingly my older Samsung 1200 will play BD-R/RE

Yea, the Sony S350 model will play BD discs made from any source as well as most other discs including CD-Rs. :thumbup:

Maybe more players than I thought. It is strange that Sammy enabled that playbck in the earlier model 1200 and

then disabled the ability in the newer 1400. Don't know about the newest model 1500.

 

I suspect that more and more folks will be making backups of their Blu-ray discs as the price of the media and the burners continue to decline. Especially with the pain of keeping up with FW updates on the SA's, in order to play new releases w/o problems. Samsung's are notorious for this.

I have a Blu Ray question. If AnyDVD is used to rip a BD to a ISO image for burning to a 50GB BD-RE. How would Imgburn handle the layer change?
