Encore CS6 won't recognize Disk media

I just bought CC so I could get access to Encore CS6 and burn Blu-ray and DVD. Specifically I want to be able to encode 2 Pass VBR Blu-ray and have it work in Encore with no work around.


That works fine. But I can't burn a disk.


Windows 8.1 Pro

Brand New System Core i7 4770K GTX 760 16 GB RAM

Pioneer BDR-208

Also went back and tried a working BDR 206 from another system.

The BDR writes fine direct from Windows.


Already un-installed and downloaded and re-installed CS6.


Project authors great.

Choose Build Disk - Write speed is not available.

Tell it go ahead anyway.

Says to put Blu-ray Media into drive and hit okay.


Media used include Verbatim BD-RE that works fine in the system sitting beside this one with same drive and CS5.

Verbatim BD-R labelled

Falcon Media BD-R Print to Center Inkjet


AND I tried a DVD project with Verbatim DVD-R. DVD shows the write speed selector, but still refuses to acknowledge a disk is in the drive.


Only thing I didn't do was download and install Libraries and Styles. Doing that download now, but since I never use stock items it's a real waste of my time and space.


I need this urgently. This project is the only reason I bought the CC product.

Anyone else know the answer?

Is there a PxEngine update somewhere?

    Many of us can't effectively troubleshoot such problems because we stopped using Encore to burn several versions ago and haven't tried since.


    Most of us use ImgBurn.


    That workaround did not bother me much because I always liked having a folder/image version for archive anyway. And at best, Encore's burning process is very basic.

    Adding to what Stan said about Imgburn...


    Have Encore create an ISO and then use the FREE to write to disc (send the author a PayPal donation if you like his program)


    Read for notes on installing Imgburn WITHOUT any toolbar add-ons


    As well as ISO burning, I use Imgburn for ALL of my file/folder writing to disc

    Trust Mr. Smith. I use imgburn for all my burning as well. It is not entirely free, in that it asks for a donation. It is a very good product. All my DVDs this year (>600) were made by building an ISO image from Encore, then burning a DVD using imgburn. Not a problem with any disc. The process is faster and unproblematic.
