The BMDV structure is already optimized for BD9s, there is no need to run it through MultiAVCHD. if you do will not change anything anyways.

Yeah dude, that is what I will be doing. I have a portable HDD that I use, and the other 2 BD50's are on that, formatted for PS3, so I wanted to put it on that with the others!

Update on newsgroups: I decided to start the preparation on this project first, since the file recovery set is going to take so long for the BD50's (almost 24 hrs).
I made the file recovery set last night, which processed in under 4 hrs. NFO and SFV files are ready too. Just need to create the NZB file, and start uploading.
This will be my first post to binary newsgroups, so I am just learning how to do everything now.

@superleo: Once everything is ready, will you be able to post the NZB file to the first post, under the torrent file link? That would likely be the best spot for it. Cheers.

EDIT: Uploading has begun. I will let you know when complete (couple of hours). Then I can post the NZB file which is ready.

Most definitely, I'll post it to the front page, and I'm sure LastButNotLeast (Michael) will do the same. Just let us know when it's ready.

BestOfRefDisc_NZB_TestedOK.zip 167k .zip file
BestofRefDisc_NFO.zip 1k .zip file

Download, un-Zip, and double click NZB to launch your newsreader client. If you have no idea what this file is, use the alternative "torrent" download method (or you can google "how to use newsgroups with newbin files" or the like.) It is not something you will learn in half an hour and usually a paid subscription is required anyway

EDIT: Both files above are now GOOD TO GO. (The original NZB that the posting software created doesnt seem to work, so I created a new one from the usenet of the files that were uploaded there via binsearch.)

Argggg! I have made 2 coasters and cannot seem to get a working disc. 1st one was my fault as I burnt a data DVD with a very old copy of NERO. But I D/L'd Imageburn, set the UDF to 2.5 and made another coaster.

Could someone do a quick write up with step by step instructions for putting this on a disc? I know there has to be a setting or something I am missing. I have Imageburn and multiAVCHD installed but am new to both programs. I really want this to work. Thanks

Pretty sure I know the answer to this, but going to ask it anyway so be gentle...

I don't have any DL DVDs, but I do have a 25GB BD-R that came with my drive. I'm guessing I can just burn to that instead of the DVD media correct?
post #41 of 159

Yes, but it's (obviously) only going to use 8GB of the 25GB disc. Cheaper to buy some DVD-DLs (which you can use for Leo's second disc ;)).

But yes, it will work.

As we've said, it's here:

post #2

It may be your player, so don't beat yourself up too badly. Not all BDPs are able to play AVCHD discs.

One other hint is that some players want the disc label (see above instructions) to be "AVCHD".

Yes, it can be frustrating.

And yes, I'm tired of recommending rewritables.

Good luck.

Downloading now - thanks for your efforts.

Well 3 coasters now and the last after following the steps outlined above. frown.gif I guess no demo disc for me.

:eek:

Have someone else try them in their Blu-Ray player.

post #46 of 159
smile.gif Yeah I didn't throw the last one (which is likely the only one authored correctly) away, so I will check it on someone else's player. Kind of stinks because I thought this Panasonic BDT500 would have surely played about anything. Either it won't or I didn't author the disc correctly.

It would sure save a lot of time and frustration if someone made these discs into an ISO so there would be no doubt on how to burn it. Thanks for the trouble anyways.....

Actually, just as many people have had trouble with iso's. ;)

There is no "doubt" about how to burn it, it just sometimes doesn't work.

Sorry yours didn't.

Have I mentioned re-writables are a good idea? :p

Got mine burned and played! There's some crackling on the looper clip, the super 8, and iron man...not sure what that's about. Picture was great on all and saw some clips I'd never seen before. Thanks to all involved!
post #49 of 159
Sorry if this sounds dumb, but I too am computer illiterate as someone else already mentioned, and I just want to make sure I am doing this correctly.

I first downloaded the link to my computer desktop. I then right-clicked on it and selected "Extract Here," which was a technique I found online for unzipping files. This created two new items on my desktop - a folder titled "_MACOSX with a file inside titled "._Best of Disc" and an icon on my desktop titled "Best of Disc."

I then downloaded ImgBurn, and followed the instructions from the "post #2" link provided. The filed I dragged into ImgBurn was the icon titled "Best of Disc" from my desktop. I followed all the steps after this point, and now have the following information:
-In the big white box I have the file "C:\Users\Kevin\Desktop\Best of Disc.torrent"
-to the right under Information tab I have Total File Size 27,681 bytes; Total File Sectors 14; Image Size 1,310,720 bytes; Image Sectors 640

Does this seem like the right file? Next step is to just pop in the DVD-DL disc and burn it?

Not yet!

You have the link to the torrent. You need to download the torrent file, which is the actual disc (which is about 8GB!). Google "mac utorrent" and (carefully, trying to avoid the junk ads), download microtorrent, which will then open the torrent link you have. 

The download itself will take many hours, just so you know you're heading in the right direction.

You will end up with two folders that look just like a BD, "BDMV" and "Certificate." Those are the folders you drag to ImgBurn.

Good luck.

This may be another dumb question, but is Mac Utorrent for Mac computers? Because I have a PC... I did Google search that and it brought me to a download.cnet.com for "Mac Utorrent" itself, not a program called "Microtorrent." It said that "Mac Utorrent" is a torrent downloader for Mac computers.

Sorry, I saw the reference to MacOS and thought it was yours.

Indeed, you want the PC version of everything:

http://www.utorrent.com/downloads/win

It's not really a "u," it's a mu, the Greek letter, abbreviation for micro.

Hi Mike,

One question. You said drag and drop the two folders "BDMV" and "Certificate" to ImgBurn. But most of the DVD-RW are around 4.7 GB's and the size of this disk is around 8 GB. So do you mean that we need two DVD-RW ?

Thanks.

Perfect, thanks Mike. Looks like this is not the re-writable one.

Nope. According to Wiki:

Dual layer[edit]

A dual-layer DVD+RW specification was approved in March 2006 with a capacity of 8.5 GB.[2] However, manufacturing support for rewritable dual-layer discs did not materialize due to cost and expected competition from newer formats such as Blu-ray, which provides up to 25 GB on a single layer.

 

Since I've been involved in a bunch of these, I've gotten several (admittedly expensive) rewritable BDs (BD-RE DL).

Fortunately, you get fewer coasters with DVDs than with BDs, so you should be okay.

I'll keep my fingers crossed for you, so please let me know how you make out.

Michael

Just ordered from the link that you gave. Will let you know how it goes.

Thanks Mike.

Seems they missed the whole point. In the main menu, it's listed as a BD, so anyone looking for a high-def DVD will miss it. In the actual listing, though 7.8GB is correct, it's not a BD25, it's a BD9, which makes a world of difference.

Pity.

Two thumbs down.

Michael

I feel the same way. I though the rating of "average" is way too low for this disc... Regardless of the review its a great disc!
