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)
I was assuming that there is a switch in Encore that will allow it to burn standard DVD directly on a Bluray burner. Actually, if I have to go through all that I would rather use the old standard DVD burner that is on my old system. My real concer is that when I put together a new system for CS6.5, it would be more convenient to install one optical burner (rather than 2) that will probably be used to burn many more standard DVDs than Bluray discs.

I am not trying to write an HD project to a DVD.
I am trying to write a standard DVD project to a standard DVD in a Bluray burner.
Every time I select the Bluray burner Encore brings me back to the standard DVD burner that has no blank DVD in it.
My Bluray burner is: Asus BW-12B1ST
As far as I can tell from the ASUS website there is no update for this burner.
If you have anymore suggestions I would be glad to try them out.
I am planning to build a new PC to run CS6.5 (some day) and I am trying to find out if I can move my fairly new Bluray burner to the new system without buying a DVD burner for it.
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
Thanks for the info.
I think I will just let things go at this point.
I can burn Bluray Encore projects using my current Bluray burner and burn DVD projects using the old DVD burner.
My plan is to move that Bluray burner to the new system that I build in the summer 2013 and I will hope that it can burn both Bluray and DVD discs.
It will be the only optical drive that I put on that system unless it does not work for both disc types.
I guess I was hoping to avoid installing 2 burners on my new system but DVD burners are very cheap these days and since I am planning to install a RAID controller I will have many SATA ports available for burners. Thanks
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
