Windows 10 Fails To Burn Second Layer Of Dual Layer Blank Blu-ray Discs

March 1997 I started. My Amiga setup ran of course with SCSI too, Blizzard 030 (later 040), some RAM and the SCSI Kit plus external with a Philips CDD-2600 and a scsi hdd holding 800mb or so. :smiley:
Enough for a basic CD of any kind…

The computer I first used for CD burning would have been a 133Mhz Pentium with a 1.2GB HDD. I got that PC in 1996, which was my 2nd PC I ever had (my first PC was 1995 which was only a 4xxMB HDD). in fact, I have only had basically 5-6 main computers (5 or 6 depending on how you count, but I pretty much consider it 6) since 1995…

1)Packard Bell (486dx2 66Mhz CPU/4xxMB HDD etc) in 1995.

2)Packard Bell (Pentium 133Mhz CPU/1.2GB HDD etc) in 1996.

3)eMachines (500Mhz Celeron with I think a 10GB HDD etc). this would have been late 1999 at the earliest, but probably sometime early 2000.

4)Alienware (1.2GHz Athlon CPU/40GB HDD originally etc) in 2001. but retired the basic motherboard in Jan 2019 as you can see the CPU is pretty ancient as doing basic tasks CPU went to 100% often etc. so while it technically still worked, it’s ancient/slow as just doing basic web browsing pretty much sucked.

5)I Custom Built (originally AMD Athlon 3500+ single core CPU(socket 939)/250GB HDD, but currently has a AMD Athlon X2 3500+ dual core etc) (March 2006) (this motherboard is currently in the Alienware case from 2001 as of I think Jan 2019. it was retired since May 2012 til about Jan 2019 as I got a quality PSU (Seasonic 430 watt) for really cheap on Ebay so I could revive the March 2006 motherboard as I figured even if that dies, I can always use the PSU as a good backup in case my main PC’s dies. so it’s a no loss situation. it’s strictly a backup computer anyways)

6)I Custom Built (i3-2120 CPU/8GB of RAM (but last year I got used CPU(i5-3550)/RAM(16GB)) (May 2012 and is still my main PC to this day) (but this is using the same case from the March 2006 computer)

or in short my 6 main computers can be summed up into years like this… 1995/1996/1999-2000/2001/2006/2012.

but it’s nice that for quite some time now that computers don’t get outdated nearly as quickly as they used to as my current computer is definitely the longest main computer I ever owned as the core motherboard has been my main PC for 8 years and 9 months+ (I plan on using it for the foreseeable future to. so unless something major happens ill probably be using it til at least the year 2023-2025+). previous record for a main PC would have been my previous computer at 6 years and 2 months. even to this day my previous computer, while you can see it’s age, it’s still respectable considering it’s nearly 15 years old even though you can see the general CPU usage on that shoots up noticeably more in general vs my main PC’s i3-2120/i5-3550 CPU’s which should still hold up fairly well for years to come since I don’t see those struggling for general internet and the limited gaming tasks I do(since it’s largely replaying some games I played already) anytime soon as I would imagine for general tasks(or thereabouts), my i5-3550 ain’t all that much worse than current CPU’s and we are talking about a 8-9 year gap in technology to. which is nice as it’s nice to see CPU’s last much longer than they once did where things would get outdated fairly quickly. but nowadays, to ball park it, if someone has a good CPU over the last decade or so, chances are it’s still passable even today, especially if someone just browses the internet, with maybe some limited gaming, and the like.

I think I bought my first “ibm compatible pc” in 1993 (AMD 386 DX 40) and invested into 4 MB of RAM for a hilarious price… mainly to gamble Doom :smiley:

Anyway, can you post some logs??

It’s funny you mention that as I think we also had to upgrade our RAM from I think 4MB to 8MB for Doom and, like you said, the price was not cheap. I want to say over $100. this had to be sometime in 1995 or early 1996.

but if your talking 1993 I can only imagine how much you paid as even in 1995-1996 paying $100+ sound ridiculous by today’s standards for ONLY 4MB of RAM.

Yeah, true. It was not 4MB, it was really 8MB for mainly D**M. :smiley:
Probably it was more than 400DM just for the RAM. :innocent:

Hi,

can you post some burnlogs here?!?

Hi Everybody.

Sorry for the late reply, but things got really busy for a while. Let me first address something that was previously pointed out to me by one of you. Perhaps the majority of people out there no longer “Burn” discs of any sort these days, but it is (and will continue to be) part of my daily routine for both business and personal purposes. Amongst all of the other things that I do for business, I shoot wedding and event videos. Now, while the event videos could be uploaded for later viewing, 100% of my paying clients demand that I provide them with the entire even on discs (Blu-ray discs to be more precise). They do not want their special day wafting around in the “Cloud” for just anyone to see. They demand a hard copy that they can hold in their hands a play whenever they want to.

That is all that I intend to say on this subject, so hopefully we can move on to solutions to my problem.

Chef asked me to post a log file from IMGBurn. It too me a while to find an older version that has no viruses or malware attached to the install program, but I was finally successful.

I just completed a brand new dual layer disc project using my editing program which is Pinnacle Studio 24. Now, I have been using Pinnacle in all of its previous versions since Pinnacle launched their DV500 version of what would become an Avid product – later to be purchased by Corel. So I have seen all of the hiccups and flops along the way.

Just an FYI. Pinnacle Studio 24 is still able to successfully produce and burn SINGLE Layer Blu-ray discs without any problems. The single-layer BDMV folders created by Pinnacle do burn successfully with any of the burning methods that are available to me (including simply dragging and dropping the BDMV file to my internal disc burner using Windows Explorer.)

So, I have completed this new test project. I first allowed Pinnacle Studio 24 to Burn the project to a dual layer Blu-ray disc. The program seemed to complete the burn and said that it had been successful, but the disc would not play in my 4k Sony UPB-X800 Blu-ray Player (Which plays all of my home burnt discs without any problems. Next I used IMGBurn version 2.5.8.0 to burn and verify the disc.

The burn failed at approximately 67 % and I received an error message that I will attempt to add to this message.

IMGBurn then cycled the disc tray and began the verification process. It reach what appeared to be the 67 % point and then just kept scanning and scanning for ever. I finally just quit the program because it was just wearing out my Blu-ray burning laser. IMGBurn did create a log file which I will also attempt to add to this post so that you can see what I am seeing too.

I greatly appreciate any thoughts or solutions you may have. As Dee told me earlier – “Microsoft made significant changes to the H2 kernel”. My problem may well be in those changes that were made. If could also be something as simple as an older driver that was let out of the newest Windows build. But I did find at least one other person who is having the exact same problem as me. In his case, he states that he is no longer able to burn dual layer DVDs. He receives the same errors as I have been getting. So this seems to be a systemic problem. And you may well be correct by stating that so few people actually burn any kind of discs anymore that the problem may not be something that Microsoft is even aware of – or has any intention of addressing.

Anyway. I thank you all once again for taking a look at the log file and error message that I received.

Best Regards

ufoMike

Here is the IMGBurn Log File text. I had to cut out a good portion of the text results due to the limitations of this website, but the remaining text should be more than enough for our purposes.
