Blue ray Error -  "Device not ready", Code:"3", Notes -   Any ideas what this means?

Tags: #cs5.5 #3 #blu-ray #build #error_code

After I clicked ok, then I saw where 23.98 of 24.98 GB was written.   Looked at bottom of BD and it was about 90% written to.   Any suggestions as what this may be or where I should be looking for the definitions for error codes?    I am lost on this one.  Don't even know where to start looking.

Thanks in advance for any suggestion you might have.

BTW, I am using CS5.5, most recent version.

    What does it say after "Notes"?

     

    Did you try running "as administrator"?

     

    Do this before retrying:

    Also, try buildnig to image or folder to eliminate any burnder issues.

    >By Administrator, I assume that the user has Administrator privileges

    .

    As well as the below, right click the Encore icon and select Run as Administrator, which is NOT the same thing as running the computer with the Administrator account, and which fixes several "odd" problems... To create a two layer DVD (or a BluRay?), you MUST have Encore set to use the Run as Administrator option

    .

    Create an ISO (Encore) or folder on your hard drive (Encore or Premiere Elements) and then use the FREE http://www.imgburn.com/index.php?act=download to write files or folders or ISO to disc for DVD or BluRay (send the author a PayPal donation if you like his program)

    .

    Imgburn will read the ACTUAL disc brand from the disc, which is not always the same as the box label (Memorex is notorious for buying "anything" and putting it inside a Memorex box)

    .

    When you write to disc with Imgburn, use the SLOWEST possible speed setting, so your burner has the best chance to create "good, well formed" laser burn holes... since no DVD player is required to read a burned disc, having a "good" one from a high quality blank will help

    Thanks Stan.   There was nothing after "Notes"   It appears that the message box was to small and it cut off everything after "notes.

    Here is another thread, in which Ramesh suggests that Code 3 points to faulty disks. If  you get any further info about the end of the message, let us know.

     

    The folder that I was referenced to does not exist in the Project tab.

    I assume you are referring to the "AuthorScriptHDMVSessions folder." I don't know how you could build a BD project without getting files in this folder. However, the folder is not created until the build, and a tmp folder exists until the build is complete, so I wonder if the final folder is not created when the build errors.

     

    Edit: saw your post just after I posted this.

    See John's note about imgburn and see if you can burn the folder to a disk.

     

    Drive/disk issues can be complicated.

    Part (most?) of the problems with Encore is that the "author core" is licensed from another company... and when the author core has a problem, the error message reporting is not always very good

     

    Being an Administrator when you use your computer is not the same as running as an administrator... I found that out the first time I tried to do a dual layer DVD... so use the link I sent to tell Encore that you always want to Run as Administrator

     

    I don't know if 50 characters is long enough to trigger that particular problem... my mind is still back in DOS 8 character days, so I always use short names, and have never had a problem

     

    I also NEVER go direct to disc out of Encore... I always have Encore create ISO/folder and then use Imgburn... an extra step, but Imgburn gives much greater control over the burn process... specifically, I always burn at the slowest possible speed

    John T Smith, me too I exported ISO and shorted name without free space.

    But I had a code 3 with a bad blu-ray disc (LG).

    I changed to a sony blu-ray disc and it worked.
    Bye

    I use Imgburn for ALL disc writing... including files and folders for general data backup

     

    I have Imgburn's default set to 1x writing... and it then uses the slowest POSSIBLE speed of the media after it reads the parameters of the blank media

     

    I don't do BluRay, but I have never had a DVD fail

    I'm not at my BD burner machine, but help says Encore displays the drive's max speed and allows you to select a lower speed. I don't think the problem is that Encore is not allowing speed setting, but that something in this project/drive/disk etc allows only one speed.

     

    The Code 3 error message varies as to the content of the "Notes." All Code 3's are not AS_StorageErrors. We don't know whether your error message is truncated, or whether it is Code 3 with no Notes specified.

    Have you checked if you have the last firmware of your blu-ray player ?

    For many of the imgburn options there is a guide:

     

    http://forum.imgburn.com/index.php?showforum=4

     

    But I don't see one for BD.

     

    Set the mode for "Write files/folders to disk" (since you have a folder build).

     

    Drag in the folders so you see the BDMV and CERTFICATE folders in the imgburn window.

     

    If you simply burn at this point, ImgBurn will usually prompt you for any misfits.

     

    I am away from my production machine, and don't have a BD burner on this one.

    I also got Error Code 3 & Error Code 25 while using Encore CS5.5 for Mac while burning a 3:15 hour long wedding video on a 50 GB BD. Problem got solved when i renamed ppro time line to a short name with no spaces or other special characters. made a new project in encore, imported time line into it, just with name change transcoding time reduced too much and buring when normal.
