    OK, I have gone through the tutorials, made several different files to folders but how do I burn to a disc? No matter what I do, it wants to create more files. I thought creating an ISO file then choosing that with CloneBD it would let me burn to a disc but I see no options for that. BTW, I am using the trial version of CloneBD and BD-R25 discs

    CloneBD is primarily a PROCESSING tool. eg shrinking from BD50 to BD25, or making a portable file such as mkv, mp4. If all you want to do is straight up burn, just load your source > full disc backup > if the source is a double layer, select bd50 if it's single layer BD25 > begin conversion. When you select BD50 it'll go really quick and video won't be touched.

    However if you want to do a straight 1:1 backup without going through that, use IMGburn and it can burn your ISO directly. Note in this case the disc type must match!

    Thanks for the quick response. How do I know if a disc is double or single layer? Plus, I did not see anywhere that asked if it was double or single.

    Simple. Iso > 23.5GB > Needs double layer size or shrinking to fit on a BD25 (single layer disc). You're not asked if the SOURCE is single layer or double layer. CloneBD asks on the final screen before you click "begin conversion" if you want to burn TO a BD25 or BD50. :)

    OK, my ISo is 22.1GB, when I start up imgburn it says Device not ready(incompatible median installed). I'm running the latest imgburn version.

    What's your drive model? That message indicates your using a media type not supported by your drive. EG: Blank BD-R in a DVD burner only. What's your drive model?

    The drive is a LG WH1GNS40 M-Disc and I am using memorex BD-R 25GB discs

    In that case, the problem is likely the crappy memorex blanks. That's a bout the cheapest, crappies brand u can get next to RiTek / RiData. Try better (best) quality verbatim's

    I can try getting some verbatim's. Should get the 25's or 50's?

    Are you sure that drive model number is correct?

    probably a typo. Most likely the WH16NS40

    OK guys & gals, I made another run at it and this time it worked. I don't know exactly what I did but this time it recognized the media and burned it. Now all I need to do is figure out what I did to make it work. o_O

    That's another one of the problems with using sketchy blanks. One disc may work while the next from the same packaging may not.

    I use Kodak BD-R 25 discs and haven't had any burning or playback issues with them.
