"Top Menu" (First Play) not set and "Set Title Menu" not set.

May 14, 2013 12:26 PM

I had made an ISO file for a Dual Layer Blu-Ray Disc.


I burned it in Toast 11.


I put it in my Playstation 3 and I tried to go to the "Top Menu" and it said "There is no Top Menu."


I went back into Encore CS 5.1 and looked at my project. Sure enough, there was no "First Play" (Top Menu) attached to my Main Menu like I wanted it to be. I then set it up to be my "First Play." I also noticed that on the Disc Properties Menu there is a box entitled "Title Button". That was also Not Set. I set that to have the Main Menu (Menu 1) appear when someone presses the 'Title Button" on their remote.


How come the First Play was not automatically set up when I put my first menu in Encore a while back when I started building this project?


Is there any other buttons or settings I have to worry about?


Is there a way to preview my Finished Blu-Ray Disc after it has been made into an ISO file but before I burn it in Toast 11 to make sure all links and all meus are working properly? It gets kind of expensive to keep burning Dual Layer Blu-Ray Discs just to find out the disc is not working properly.  I would like to preview it outside of using Encore.


Thanks in advance.

    One of the best ways to porevent this happening is to use the "Project Check" function - thias will tell you clearly if there are importtant things such as First Play or Title menu that have not been set.

    The 2 are also often interchangeable.

    First Play does exactly what it says on the tin, and Title is generally the discs's main menu - the only times they will not be the same is if you have things like company logos you need to have as a first play.


    As for previewing BD titles without burning, you can use software players like TMT or similar - but be aware these are all, well, not strictly correct.....some work better than others.
