Nero 12 Video wont burn a blu ray disc

I have tried to make a blu ray movie using nero version 12. When making the movie, I do the following steps:

I select create and export a blu ray disc

Add the movie files

Set up the menu

And progress to the end of the process where it ask to burn the movie

When I try to burn it to the blu ray disc I get the following error message

The specified destination directory is not writable. Please specify a different location.

Not sure what to do, suggestions????

  • This sounds like you have selected the image recorder as destination.
    Have your selected you bd-writer in the recording settings?

  • At what point do you select the recording settings? If it is at the end right before you burn the only option that shows up in the menu us the image writter.

  • OK, this means your write is not detected

    a) What writer do you have
    b) Please start nero burning rom. Select Recorder/Choose Recorder. Is the recorder listed here and is bd-r listed as supported recording format?

  • I have a samsung writter. It has worked once before so I know it works with Nero.

    Yes the recorder is detected in Nero burning Rom. I tried to burn the movie through that on my blu Ray burner and it burned but it would not play on a blu ray player.

  • Open Windows Explorer (File Explorer in Win 8).

    While your writer is connected, map your network so that the blu-ray drive shows up with it's own letter such as F:. Does Nero Video detect it then?

  • I have the same problem for BURN the final image *.nrg to the the Blu-Ray burner SAMSUNG when this disc is 50 GB.
    Always have problems in the second layer, the first layer always work fine, but never finish the second layer.
    Do not work with Burning Room or Express. Appear a message " this disk is not recognized".
    It ́s a problem with the final codification?

  • I’m frustrated
    Yes. I verify the page of the manufacturer and the firmware is Update.
    Appear the next message.
    SPANISH
    "El disco cargado no está registrado en la lista de estrategia de grabación de la unidad.
    Si usa el disco para grabar, la calidad de grabación puede ser peor que si se usa uno registrado, Se recomienda activar la opción de verificación para garantizar que la grabación se ha realizado correctamente. ¿Desea efectuar la verificación después de grabar?"
    ENGLISH
    The loaded disc is not registered on the list of recording strategy unit.
    If you use the disc for recording, the recording quality can be worse than if one member is used, is recommended to enable the option to check to ensure that the recording was successful. Do you want to perform verification after burning?
    And never end burning the disc.

  • I try it the first time, but the encoding time was about 24 hrs and then failed at to burn disc. All work go to the trash, and begin of zero.
    This is the reason that I first encoding to VIRTUAL BURNING -to Blu-ray take 24 28 hrs- and after I burn the disc.
    Take about 1-2 hours to burn a image *.nrg to disc -with error verification-
    Best Regards.

  • Thank you for the information.

    Would you post the nerovideolog.txt file. You can find it here-

    Open it and then copy its contents here. You will probably have to post more than once to get the whole thing.

  • The last week I burn 2 BD of 25 GB very good.
    Both are RITEK same.I save the log of them.
    I have one log -or two- of the failed BD 50 GB.
    Curiously in BOTH the previous message appear, -writer does not know the media- but in the 25 ends well, and the 50 GB never ends.
    Comparing the logs appear this information

  • It says the logical unit, which I presume is the firmware of the optical drive, is not ready. It sounds like a problem with the discs but can't say for sure.

    Since you said you have the latest firmware for your drive, I recommend that you send an e-mail to tech support at techsupport@nero.com.
