  1. It has now burned fine and works ok in my BD players.
  2. Still the percentage only went up the one time.
  3. I remember but the first time I formatted using spare areas on, the percentage just goes up once and took 40 minutes. It then went straight to burning.
  4. Another formatting question. I formatted a BD 50 in 80 minutes with spare areas on. I tried to burn 46.6GB and the disc was not big enough. I reformatted with spare areas off and it finished formatting after 3 hours then started again. This second time it will complete a format in 80 minutes like before. Is it normal to format twice? It should start burning soon.
  5. Ok thanks. I have a TDK 50GB -RE coming and can't wait to try it. At least I can't ruin a RW disc if something goes wrong. I am just used to having that MDS file with DVD ISO images.
  6. Interesting. So imgburn will know where the start and end of each layer is from reading the iso? I only have a single iso file.
  7. 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?
  8. ? That is not what LIGHTNING UK said at the beginning. I know it only needs to be done once (just like a +RW). With it disabled the LG disc took something like 4.5 hours and with it enabled the TDK formatted in 40 minutes.
  9. So would you enable fast write to get a 40 minute format instead of 4+ hours then turn it off when actually burning a BD-RE. Then, also have prefer format without spare areas enabled for all burns to max out the burning capacity? I want to be able to get the 23.3GB capacity if I need to.
  10. My data is video only so as long as it plays in a bd player is all that matters. It is more important as I just did a verify on the LG disc which passed but no good to me in my players. I decided to do a verify anyway on the TDK BD-RE I just burned and that passed as well. If I have fast write off what speed would the BD-RE 2x speed write at? I cancelled before the burning started before. I suspect it might be 1x.
  11. I have always wondered about verify. I don't really see the point as it not like the BD-R can be redone.
  12. I got the TDK BD-RE and they are much better. It formats in 39 minutes and burned 22GB in 39 minutes. It plays perfectly on my BD players. I also did a burn on a Traxdata BD-R at 4x and took just 20 minutes. It was doing it at 1GB per minute !!!! That Fast write setting made all the difference.
  13. The disc will still be useful for storing 25GB of data. Unfortunately, Verbatim ones are too expensive (
  14. The disc burned ok in just 40 minutes but doesn't work in the bd players I have (one stutters and one saids no disc). From what I have found out is it seems the LG RE discs that come ith the GGW H20 drives are not too good.
  15. It got stuck on 0x so I cancelled and erased it (took 15 seconds) and enabled fast write. It is now burning at 2.3x.
  16. It has started burning and very slowly. The write rate is 0.2x and keeps changing.
  17. Thanks for the quick reply. Looks I need to let it finish. Where is this fast write enabled bit and I assume it won't do this format again for the disc.
  18. I am about to get into burning BD and put in a BD-RE (25GB). I am copying over a BD ISO and the program wanted to format the disc first. I thought that was normal with a new unused disc so it is curently doing. The problem is it has been doing formattin for 90 minutes and only on 25% completed. It this normal as I was expecting it to take only a few minutes. Is there anyway to cancel without ruining the disc?
  19. I have the Sony S350 BD player now and I can confirm that it needs the certificate folder not burned to work. However the video is stuttery but that is the fault of the Blu Ray to AVCHD software I am using. I am using the original bitrates of the Blu Ray discs and I think the AVCHD spec doesn't go that high up.
  20. I managed to burn a disc with just the BDMV folder and for some reason it didn't work when it worked last time. I will leave it for now until I get that Sony BD player.
  21. I am waiting to get hold of a Sony S350 that plays all types of DVD. I currently have access to the Samsung 1500. I am recording onto several makes of DVD+RW's and the Samsung do not recognise them unless they are DVD ROM. I have done that and got one disc working. I then reburned a different video and it didn't recognise the disc again despite still being DVD ROM'D. I am hoping the Sony player will be easier to test with as it works with DVD+RW's I'll do a reburn using that option unticked as I prefer to use Imgburn.
  22. Is it possible for me to burn without the certificate folder? I tried moviefactory again and came up with no disc despite no certificate folder. I am not convinced that the MF burning program is that good.
  23. I never thought of using Wiki to look at what it said about AVCHD. That would have saved me a couple weeks of messing about. I have had 1080i mpeg 2 material working in the Samsung BD player. My first test was 1080p24 AVC/H264 and the certificate folder which didn't work. I am waiting to do another test without the certificate folder as I originally thought it didn't work with the progressive or 24fps. That site saids it is. I can't believe the solution would be so simple.
  24. I am glad to see this thread. I have been having problems with getting AVCHD working in a Samsung BDP 1500 player which does AVCHD. For two weeks I have been getting no disc errors. I checked a AVCHD disc that I borrowed and it didn't have certificate folder. It worked ! I then reburned my disc using Moviefactory and just the BDMV folder. That also worked. So, it does seem that the certificate folder is causing a problem. I am getting a Sony S350 soon and that also does AVCHD. I will try both ways using that as well.
  25. It makes up for Team GB getting 10th back then. I am impresed with Jamaica, they were 34th last time and now 11th.
