Finished a project. Sucessfully burnt some DVD's. Then burnt Blu-ray discs.  DVD's play fine.

Blu-ray discs will not play. Why??  In a Panasonic player the disc is shown loaded and "Play" displayed on screen

The Menu appears. Nothing further. The menu  is programmed to display at the beginning and again at finish..

In Encore - no problems when project panel was used before burning.

The burnt track shows on the disc, A different batch of discs was tried. Same result.

Settings`were checked on Build panel and are correct. Baffled!

Re: Blu-ray discs.

i can't really help but do they play in the burner that you used?

Re: Blu-ray discs.

That would be my question too Les - do they play in your PC normally?
If so, and I guess from your words that they do, then can you try them in another BD player?
Or send them to me and I'll try them in a variety of players.

No Dave and Tom, they don't. Tried a Panasonic player and Panasonic recorder.

Also three computers. The Menu displays first on all the above. Nothing after that.

Menu was meant to display at beginning, before the programme is started;.

again when the programme finishes..

Re: Blu-ray discs.

it's yonks since I used any other programme but DVD Studio Pro on a Mac but….

 In DVDSP you need to link the assets (tracks/videos) to the buttons.
Nothing happens automatically.

Is it possible that you need to do this?
does the Bluray work in the emulation mode?
(I assume that what you have will emulate to allow you to check?)

Do the Blu-ray disks have to be finalized?    http://blog.cdrom2go.com/2011/02/what-does-it-mean-to-finalize-a-disc

Now with a PC Specialist Quad Core i7-3770, 16GB RAM, 180GB SSD, GeForce GTX560 Ti Graphics Card, Blu-Ray & DVD R/W Burners and can't wait to set it up. Now up and running.  What a difference in Blu-Ray footage.

Re: Blu-ray discs.

Yes Dave, A link was made. One in this case,

Another project was done without this problem, but I do like to find the fault(s) of such failures.

No Tony. Finalisation is not required.

I do not find Encore easy to use when a Menu is required to display first - until PLAY is used - and project proceeds.

At finish the same menu will display again - until told otherwise.

Re: Blu-ray discs.

Hi Harry,  I read the link you quoted and it explains what may happen if a disc is not finalized. This article refers to CD?DVD's I believe rather than Blu-ray discs. I appreciate discs in general will probably play on the drive on which they were created, but may not play on other devices if they have not been finalized. Your link explains this point. My experience is that I have had problems playing a dvd (which was created on my Windows pc), on a domestic DVD recorder/player if it had not been finalized. I have'nt created a Blu-ray disc so I asked the question.    The link in my original post was intended to explain the need to finalize , unless it is intended to add more info to a re-writable disc at a later date.

Re: Blu-ray discs.

Just to clarify Tony; I have made a number of discc, both DVD and Blu-ray. Finalisation has beens automatiic in Encore.

I do know that finalisation WAS required some years ago.

My problem is completeing  dialog "boxes" correctly in Encore.

I still do not know correction for 'Orphans -' and inserting "First play" correctly.

Re: Blu-ray discs.

I think the term "Orphans" relates to unused "Assets"! For example, you may have imported something that hasn`t been used or has no link to it. "First Play" relates to which timeline or menu should play first!

Yes Barry, and thank you. I know about first play but cannot always find the correct place to use it.

Orphans - it's difficult to find what the orphan is and how to correct..

Re: Blu-ray discs.

in DVDSP if you attempt to delete an asset it will warn you unless it is unused (i.e. an "orphan " in your prog)
