    Unable to burn Bluray discs

    I have seen cases in my own experience where on the CD/DVD laser, reads are fine but writes still failed. Reading data is a much simpler operation than writing it, so reading would have the potential to still work whereas writes may not. I've not observed that in BD personally, though. Now, I'm not familiar with those MBI media, but Ritek and CMCMAG (DEFINITELY CMCMAG.) are known to be cheap and problematic media. So, if the other kind of disc is also cheap, it could be just a case of cheap BD-R media across the board in all 3 cases. Normally when I get Verbatim BD-R, it's the quality VERBAT-IM discs from Amazon.com. However, for others in other countries, it's known to get CMCMAG for BD-R from Verbatim. To put it into perspective, CMC Magnetics causes over 50% of the problems seen on this forum. So, without you trying known good Verbatim VERBAT-IM BD-R media, I can't really tell you if it's a failure in your BD laser or just cheap media. One thing that bears pointing out is your drive is nearing 7 years old. Media manufacturing techniques change many times over the course of a period like that. There's no guarantee to be backwards compatibility with older hardware.

    Unable to burn Bluray discs

    It's probably not a media issue as you say you tried 3 different discs from different manufacturers (Ritek, Verbatim, and a "local one.") but get the same results. Unless all 3 have the same Disc ID, which is unlikely, it's probably not a media issue. But, you could try putting in one of each of those 3 types of BD-R into a BD drive, opening ImgBurn in Write mode, and check the pane of information in the right side. Look for different Disc ID's. If they're all the same, then it could be a media issue. However, you'll generally find Verbatim using either CMC or VERBAT-IM in their BD-R Disc ID's. The one in your log is MBI-R06-000, which I'm not familiar with, so it may be the "local one." Definitely try updating the firmware first before going any further. What could be indicative of a problem with your BD drive is you say CD/DVD burn fine but all your BD-R attempts are not. This could actually be very informative. There are actually 2 lasers in a BD burner. One for CD and DVD and the other for BD. The BD laser may have gone bad but your CD/DVD laser is still functioning. How long have you been using this drive? If not very long, then it may have shipped defective from the factory.
  3. Not entirely sure what the .LOG file is for. It's probably definitely not standardized Audio CD format. You'd end up with a Mixed Mode CD adding that .LOG file, so you can probably disregard it. If you're going to create an Audio CD with FLAC files, you'll need to install madFLAC first before using ImgBurn to create the Audio CD.

    Xbox 360 iso burning failed

    That log is an empty file.

    You can probably save a disc by posting a log.

    And a log will tell us if you're using quality discs or cheap discs. Cheaper discs have a higher likelihood of not being readable on some hardware.

    Extracting karaoke from DVD disc

    ImgBurn is not the droids you are looking for. ImgBurn just burns what you feed it and can create images with what you feed it. Depending on how this karaoke DVD is authored, it could be a standard DVD Video or a DVD Audio. If it's a DVD Audio, then the audio is contained in the menus, so you can't effectively extract it. You can save the VOB's but there's no navigating VOB's files directly except from beginning to end or randomly jumping into points in the file. If it's a DVD Video, you could potentially use a piece of free but old software called DVDShrink to save each title to an extracted VOB with IFO. Freemake should then be able to load the .IFO's, but it's been many years since I last used Freemake Video Converter. I prefer to use ConvertXToDVD to convert various VOB/IFO extracts to DVD. I believe Handbrake would also load these VOB/IFO's and offer to save each individual Title to a container like MP4. IF each song is a Title unto itself, Handbrake can then batch convert the VIDEO_TS contents to individual containers. However, I believe the maximum number of Titles a DVD can have is 99, so if you have 260 songs on a single DVD, they probably are not individual titles but contained in the menus, which would indicate it's a DVD Audio disc.

    Formatting and zeroing a new BD RE 50 GB

    What it probably really boils down to is what BD burner you're using and the DID of the BD-RE you're using. The bottom line is, generally, a lot of BD burners simply don't like BD DL media. Like LG's WH16NS40. One reason why I don't get the cheaper NS40 and buy the NS60. The NS60, at least, properly handles BD DL media. Do you have any sort of log info from an attempt to zero one of these BD-RE DL? Probably not if you have to force close down ImgBurn.

    ImgBurn problem

    I'm not entirely sure what you're asking. You seem to imply that you thought ImgBurn converts video to DVD? ImgBurn doesn't do any video conversion. As for reinstalling the codecs, that probably won't help with a problem of bad video quality. It depends on what you're using for video conversion. I use ConvertXToDVD.

    Not all sectors being read on CD-R

    I'm not sure what you mean by a crossed out circle that appears. Can you post a screen capture so I can see what it is? If you want to create an Audio CD from FLAC, you'll need to install madFLAC before ImgBurn can process them. MP3 is natively supported, though.

    ASUS BW-16D1HT and BD-R DL (VERBAT-IMf-000)

    Some drives don't like writing to DL BD media. The LG WH16NS40 is one such drive I've encountered. ASUS may be the same. I know the BW-16D1HT was absolute junk. Destroyed brand new rewritable Ritek 8x DVD+RW and Memorex/Ritek BD-RE.

    Noob Can't Master

    You're welcome! Now, there are other freeware utilities that do DVD Video conversion, but I haven't used them in a long time. And they all had serious drawbacks to the paid for software. Like taking hours to do what CXD can do in like 20 minutes or really terrible video quality on playback. So, you could try doing a search for such things if you want to try out a piece of free software.

    I think you're missing the point of what ImgBurn does. ImgBurn just burns what you feed it. It does no converting to DVD Video, which is what you appear to want. It sounds like you're trying to feed ImgBurn an MP4 and expect a DVD to play on a DVD player when you insert it? This is not what ImgBurn does. Now, if your DVD player supports playing MP4 container files natively from disc, you can do what you did and play the MP4 from the disc on your DVD player, but that's just playing a container file, not playing a DVD. If you want a disc that starts playing a DVD when you insert it, you want a DVD Video disc. You need to first convert the MP4 to VIDEO_TS format output. I use ConvertXToDVD to do this, but it requires a paid license. However, it does have, I believe, an uncrippled 7 day free trial with no watermarks or anything like that. You can then burn an ISO directly made by CXD, take its ISO and burn it with ImgBurn, or have CXD create a VIDEO_TS and you create your own ISO with ImgBurn from the VIDEO_TS.

    Norton 360 Deluxe Plus and Penn State 2012 2 DVDs

    Most likely updating ImgBurn to any new version number would not stop the false positives Norton is returning. Most likely, Norton is flagging it as a PUP, Potentially Unwanted Program, because of part of what is bundled with the software.
  15. I tried a piece of freeware software that lets you edit CUE files; I forget what it was called. However, it failed to do the trick. So, I don't know if it really is possible to edit existing CUE files or not.
