    you might want to start your own thread and better explain what the problem is and how you created it. this thread is about choosing a blu-ray authoring program.

    i'm going to assume you have never even burned a DVD
    because burning a folder to a disc is making a data disc not a DVD or blu-ray
    i don't have a BR burner, but to make a DVD you have to use a program like ImgBurn to create an ISO disc file from the folder example My_Movie.iso
    then you burn/write the ISO file to the disc

    the BD process is the same, only the BD folder is a more complicated structure that has to be correct
    then you create an iso 'disc image file' , then burn the iso file

    Imgburn will burn a video folder directly to your burning without needing to make an iso,you have to make sure you burn the right folders,BDMV and CERTIFICATE should be the only 2 folders and they need to be burned as udf 2.5,imgburn will warn you if you doing anything wrong and will correct it.

    Baldrick, our Admin, already made this a separate thread.
    And I am also curious what the exact text of the error is. Not much way to help otherwise.

    And welcome to our forums.

  9. I use a laptop and an LG USB BD-Writer. It says there's no writable disc in there,when I know there is.Although I use Windows 10,my laptop itself is an old windows 7 Dell.It doesn't even have a builtin webcam.What should I do?Simply upgrade my PC?

    Upgrade to a desktop computer,they are 2x more powerful for the same money and are easier to upgrade parts.

    I would never read anything from dell as they are the worst company for computer source and help.

  15. Now,what burning software do you think will work best?All the ones I've seen so far only let you turn your blu-ray video into a folder or iso.They'll burn dvd format straight to a disc,but that's not blu-ray format.I've tried freemake video convertor,wondershare,etc. Still only burns dvd formats directly to a disc without iso.

    Then build your BR iso or folder with your preferred software, and burn that iso or folder to your media with imgburn.

    That said, it sounds like your problem is that your burner isn't recognizing your media. (In fact, it sounds like you have a DVD burner, not Blu Ray.) It's possible that once you get that sorted out your software will burn directly to disk.

  17. I've tried img burn,before but it wouldn't write the iso.Is it because of how outdated my laptop is?

    What do your system specs say about your Blu Ray burner?

    are you sure that Win7 Dell came with a BD burner ?

    that would have been an expensive option

    i had a win7 lenovo, $600 machine and NO BD only DVD/cd

    even my current HP win 8.1 does not have a BD burn or play

    if i ever want to burn BD i will need to purchase an external bd drive

    opps..
    well something is wrong somewhere, when a drive says NO media present
    something is wrong with the drive or the disc
    then again maybe its only a DVD burner ?
    it would not be the first time somebody was confused about hardware
    posting the model number of the LG external burner would be a help

    What is the model number for the LG USB BD drive? Some Blu-ray drives are read-and-write for DVD but read-only for Blu-ray. More than one member here has bought such a drive by mistake, not realizing that it won't burn BD-R media.

    But those coatings are applied during manufacture and not available to consumers AFAIK.

    Nothing that I am aware of for consumer use. Maybe others here know of something.

    They are not region free. BUt you can use a software like anydvdhd(runs in the background) and it will remove the region lock.
