It just displayed the word data and nothing else. As far as I could tell on the imgburn log the disc had been verified. This is my 4th attempt and probally my last. Trouble is nobody near me uses Vegas or IMGBURN.
Are you burning to a DVD blank or a BD blank?

ERIC. I was burning a SD file to a blank DVD. SETH. When this rewriter LG GGW-H20L was working on W.XP
it burn't to many brands. I could even burn HD to DVD discs. Since changing to W.7, the trouble has started.

Re: DVDA and W.7

SETH> I forgot to mention in my last post. Both DVDA and the Rewriter work perfectly in W.7 when burning Standard Def, DVD discs. DVDA burns endless copies on demand and the rewritwer LG recognises all brands of blanks. It's only when burning HDV to blu-ray discs the trouble occurs. I am going to put more memory in the PC as I may of overstretched the memory by using XP mode on W.7.

Are you burning it as data or as a Blu-ray file system? Blu-ray discs (BD) use a completely different file structure than DVD.

That is why I said in my work flow I use DVDA to create an ISO file and burn that to the disc with ImgBurn. But it requires a completely different type of ISO file structure for BD than for DVD.

If you are just burning regular data files or DVD files to BD, your computer will play it but a standalone BD player will not.

Re: DVDA and W.7

ISO is a CD, DVD or BD disk image that DVDA can create to hard disk, and many programs can then burn to shiny disk. I too use ImgBurn, it's excellent.

To close the question about firmware - sounds like firmware *may* be up to date, or may not. Possibly your burner manufacturer updated firmware for W7. The same questions need to be pursued for burner drivers.

In DVDA choose to “burn” the Blu-ray to a file. That file will have the .iso extension and will contain the image of the BD. Then, in ImgBurn, right at the beginning, select “Write image file to disc” and it will burn the ISO file to a disc. The advantage of it is that you can burn that ISO file to any number of discs in the future without having to go through all the troubles of creating a proper file system, as all of that is inside the ISO file already.

With the right software you can even test the ISO file before burning it to disc.

Re: DVDA and W.7

Re instant replies - I guess you mean email notification when there is a new post. These will only be sent if you have read the post in DVi. If you are just reading the reply in your email then no further notifications will be sent until you have visited DVi again (not sure if that means specifically the Vegas forum, that particular thread, or just anywhere in DVi).

The actual wording is "There may also be other replies, but you will not receive any more notifications until you visit the forum again."

IAN. I look at ther site several times a day. I can't look at it via Email because I don't get any Email notification. I look at the site several times a day to see if there are any replies to my Post. This is how I got your last post.

Re: DVDA and W.7

Then either you have Instant Email Notification turned off or they are being sent straight to your spam folder (or being stripped by your ISP before they even get to you).

If it's the former you need to go to Controls (somewhere in the top left of your screen), click Edit Options (in the Settings & Options section), then in the Messaging & Notification section make sure that Instant Email Notification is selected.

Re: DVDA and W.7

That's interesting David. I have a LG BH10LS30 Blu Ray/DVD rewriter which I just installed to replace what I thought was a defective DVD writer (I kept getting infinite 'burning lead-in' times in DVDA that could only be stopped through forcing DVDA to close in Task Manager).

Unfortunately I now get a different error (command failed due to an IOCTL error) which I researched and found to mean that the drive was not probably compatible with DVDA and "will be fixed in a future release". There was another possible reason given, that being an issue with master/slave config but this drive was a straight swap with the old (previously working) drive so I don't think that's the case.

What model is your LG drive, David?

Re: DVDA and W.7

IAN. I have had problems with an LG re-writer which has now been diagnosed as not being compatible with windows 7. Col Lamb reported on the IAC forum that he had exactly the same trouble as me and that he had now installed a new LG re-writer the model BH10LS38 which he says works very well. I had almost decided to buy this model myself until I read your post. Unfortunately for me Col Lamb doesn't use DVDA so once again I am in a dilemma. To be truthful I wish I had never heard of HD. Is your problem happening when burning HD and also when burning Standard Def. DVD. With my LG burner it only happens with HD burner. When making normal DVD's it's perfect in every way.
