Blu ray in drive " " is not ready

Post by apagano1241 » Sun Oct 28, 2012 8:53 pm

I'm a new user.

I purchased Backup4all for its mirror feature with blu ray discs. I'm trying to backup my wife's photo collection. My first attempt was to burn a blu ray set of discs (Memorex BD-Rs, 25Gb) for a photo folder on the C drive about 128Gb in size. I've tried twice and both times I receive an error message that the fifth disc did not burn properly and to try another disc. Attempts to try another disc fail with the Drive F: is not ready message. For both attempts the discs prior to the fifth are fine; the fifth is unreadable.

I'm using a desktop PC running windows 7 with all the updates and a brand new Plextor PX-950SA internal burner with the latest firm ware. I've run the plextor utilities and found nothing wrong with the burner.

Any idea what's going wrong?

Hi,

Please open Backup4all, go to Tools->Options->CD, DVD or Blu-ray.
Select the SPTD burning engine, restart the computer and try again, do you have the same problem?

Sorry for the delay in replying; my area was hit with Hurricane Sandy and I was without power until last night.

I followed your suggested solution and thereafter made two successful "mirror" burns to blu ray with disc spanning. Thanks for the help.
