Blu-ray authored still has glitches

Molly-Molly wrote on 10/16/2020, 11:54 AM


We have DVD Arch 7 and authored for a Dual Layer 39gigs total menu/film/extras. Burning the disc at write speed of a 6x (rated for the media) we get glitches in various areas (extras mainly) however the main feature each time is glitch free. The glitches change often where they occur on various burns so its seems almost random.

We get a green check on the pre-burn sequence check list with all audio meeting the required spec, the main film, extras (trailers) only the menus (3 total) get a note about needing to recompress. Ive read that is expected.


Any tips as we need to make an authored master for duplication but without one being glitch free we cannot move forward.


Thanks for any tips!

Try reducing the burn speed - burn at the rated maximum speed of the disc can cause issues, I always burn one speed step down from the maximum rated.

It appears a burning problem. You could try "burning" to an iso file and use ImgBurn (free download) to do the actual burning to disc. Also try another brand of disc.

+1 on Eric's suggetsion. DVDA would not cause the glitch software wise, but there could be a problem burnwise. Either use something like IMGBURN or verify that your burner is working properly.

Can you use the file dvda created and prepared to burn with another program? Are you guys thinking it's the burner itself or the DVDs burning software?

DougT wrote on 10/17/2020, 11:08 AM

You can either make a Folder of the project or an ISO which you can then burn to a DVD. I prefer to use IMGBURN. I don't trust DVDA for burning. But that doesn't mean that your problem is software, it could be hardware related.

Okay awesome, I will try this...stay tuned

Okay DVDA has created an new ISO file in a folder. Its Blu-ray iso file. Confirming IMGBURN will read this iso file and can create burned Blu-ray with our new ASUS BW-16D1HT?

What is a good source link for imgburn software?

Don't know if this tutorial from @Steve Grisetti is up-to-date regarding potential bloatware, but it's worth watching anyway.

I downloaded but it comes up as wondershare dvd creator? Is that imgburn?

Try this one selected mirror:

I don't think Wondershare is ImgBurn. If @set's link does not work, try the link given here .In any case, unselect any extra options offered.

Thank you, just installed it now

You probably clicked on the DOWNLOAD advertisements, not the IMGBURN link. But glad you got it.
