CS5.0 Encore writing to a regular DVD in a Bluray burner

Dec 24, 2012 10:55 AM

I am trying to write a regular DVD project to a regular DVD in a Blueray burner.

When I select the Bluray burner (Recorder:) with a DVD in it Encore switches back to the regular DVD burner with no DVD in it.

I can burn regular data DVDs in my Bluray burner.

Bluray burner: ASUS BW 12B1ST

    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)

    There is nothing wrong with your burner, it burns DVD and BD's

    But Encore will not let you burn HD content on a DVD disk if that is what you are after.

    That is the software and not the burner.

    Sorry, no more ideas... I only have one burner drive in my computer, so have no idea why Encore will not allow you to select a drive

    Is your burner set with the latest firmware?

    You could test by opening your case and pullling the power connector from your DVD burner... restart and make sure all is will with the BIOS auto detect and the correct hardware shows in Control Panel... and see if you are then able to burn your DVD project in your BluRay drive

     

    If that works, just mark this problem as a some kind of OS and/or BIOS conflict that is confusing Encore

    Just an FYI.

    DVD burning from a BD drive is really not recommended.

    Far, far better to have 2 devices as DVD from a BD drive is not necessarily very well done.

    And why is that?

    DVD burning from a BD drive is really not recommended.

    And what about dvd burner and BD player combo?

    According to Sony & Plextor, BD burners create a lot more errors on DVD burns.

    I do not know if this is true, but why would they say it otherwise?

     

    A combo BD player/DVD Burner will be fine though, I think. It only writes with Red lasers so no worries as far as I am aware.....

     

    I have 2 on my main rig now - a Plextor BD burner that is to put it mildly temperamental (matching correct media is a  nightmare too - Plextor BD-RE drive optimized for Sony media according to the makers and other brands cannot be guaranteed, and also writing fast is a VERY bad plan - write at slowest combo of media & burner.....but BD-RE is not a BluRay disc & should not be sold as one either as it is BD-ROM, and of course cannot carry the BD logos as it is non compliant product - but you knew that anyway.

     

    Also have an M-Disc LG DVD-RW drive too

    OK that makes sence, thanks.

    I have two burners installed, both LG. One combo and one BD.

    I future i will burn the dvd in the combo.
