Incompatible disc warning when burning BD in Premiere Elements 9

May 11, 2012 4:56 AM

I am trying to burn a blu-ray disc, but get warning in Premiere Elements 9 that says "incompatible disc".  I am using a BD-R 4x single layer disc.  Why the problem?  What discs are compatible?

    That would depend on your disc drive. Have you ensured it is a BluRay burner and that you have the latest drivers?

     

    Are you using the 64-bit version of Windows 7 as your OS? If so, Premiere Elements 9 may be having trouble interfacing with the 64-bit drivers.

    One of the continuing problems with Memorex blank media, is that seem to want to buy the cheapest discs that day, and then rebrand them with the Memorex logo. With DVD's, some users have found discs from up to 4 mfgrs. in the same spindle.

     

    I would advise against using Memorex blank media in all cases. The same holds for "store brands" too.

     

    Also, I would check with the burner mfgr. to see if there is a firmware update, as older firmware can create issues too.

     

    Good luck,

    I agree with Bill. Although some people never have a problem with them, my first recommendation is to use any brand of media except Memorex.

     

    But that may or may not be the whole issue here.

     

    Since your computer is a Dell, go to the Dell site and look up your system's model number. You might be surprised how many updates have been issued, even if your computer is "brand new".

     

    You can try the free trial of Premiere Elements 10 and see if that makes a difference also. (It comes in a 64-bit Windows 7 version.) But, if all else fails, it may be worth doing what many of us do: Use Premiere Elements to edit our videos and use another program for creating our menus and authoring DVDs and BluRay discs.

    60i is essentially the same thing as 30 fps, so you're good there.

     

    Meantime, why not check out my free 8 part Basic Training tutorials?

    And, if you like it, I've also got a book available that goes into even more step by step detail.

    The various Save options are to Save the PREL (Project) file. That will only Open in PrE (and with some caveats, PrPro).

     

    To author, and/or burn the Project, you will want to Share your Timeline. The file format and CODEC, that you choose will depend on the program that you are going to use to author and/or burn. For more background on Project Files & Saving, see this ARTICLE.

     

    Good luck,

    Did you check with LG, to see if there is a firmware update for your BD burner?

     

    Good luck,
