Blu Ray Disc Failures

Hope all are doing well, I am having difficulty burning any sort of disc on DVD architect with semi new and new computers.

Here is a little background information if needed:

My oldest computer uses DVD architect 6.(Dell XPS 8900) It is the only computer that has never failed me in burning disks or preparing ISO files.

I have license keys for DVD Architect 7 (As well as DVD architect 5) to use on my new computers. One is a HP OMEN(Runs on windows 10) and another is a Dell XPS 8950 (Runs on Windows 11). I would get so much work done faster if I could get them to cooperate.

Preparing ISO files are no issue, so I am very grateful that making isos on three different computers to just burn is completely fine. ----->The issue begins with burning.

I use a LG external M Disk 16x writer (For Blu-ray) and also an internal drive that I plug adapters to since modern computers don't come in with disk drives with come exemptions with customizing with the brand. *Also made sure they are up to date

When I burn I make sure that I burn to the proper disk of the speed, even tested them at slower speeds. However not only does the % never rise, but at 3 minutes it ejects and states that it finished, try it out (Even though I acknowledge that it hasn't) and of course it is unreadable.

I have made countless tests and sadly can't get it to work. I acknowledge other platforms are an option however DVD architect menu building is made so well and when it works on my old computer it really makes me wish my newer stronger computers could burn a disk.

I have tried DVD's, Blu Ray's- 25GB and 50GB so I definitely understand it is the burners fault, however I have had many close friends let me borrow their readers and it not burn properly. When in fact they state that it works fine for them. I check proper cable type and I have no luck.

What blu ray writer could someone recommend me?

My external DVD/BD Burner is an ASUS External DVD/BD Burner - BW-16D1H-U Pro. It works well with my Alienware desktop (see specs in Signature) and, although it is not used all that often, has been reliable and has not had any burn failures with ISO files.

EDIT: Just a thought ... DVDA needs Microsoft's .NET Framework 3.5 to function. Do your computers have the latest version of .NET Framework 3.5 installed?

I stopped burning from DVDA a long time ago. i create an ISO or folder and use IMGBURN (free) to burn. You might try doing that.

Thank you Dexcon, I will be trying out that burner when I get a chance.

About the .NET framework, I did install it, however I searched up how to tell if it was activated, and I had not clicked the boxes underneath to activate when going to "windows features". As of now it still did not fix it, even after restarting. (I checked my old computer and it doesn't have the check mark boxes so it may mean nothing- as long as it is installed) However I still remain optimistic for a solution.

Hello DMT3, I am currently making as much tests as I can, I am grateful that you have recommended me the software. At the moment I am in my first test, and it is sort of interesting, it seems to be doing something however it is stuck at 0%, I hear constant noise from the burner so I am taking it as good news. However I had my old computer burn as well and it finished much faster while the burner in the newer computer is still at 0%.
