Windows 7 will not burn data of 46GB to BD-R Dual Layer or 23GB to BD-R Single Layer disc

Yes! Windows 7 is not able to burn 46GB of data to a BD-R Dual Layer disc, or 23GB to a BD-R Single Layer disc in master mode – the process fails and the following error message will be displayed.

When you try to do it you will get an error message:

The disc wasn’t burned successfully. Make sure that you have the latest firmware for your CD or DVD burner installed, and then try again.

Why does this happen!?

Because Windows 7 does not calculate the write capacity of BD-R correctly when data exceeds these figures.

The workaround?

Simple! Don’t write more than 22GB of data onto a BD-R Single Layer disc or 45GB for a BD-R Dual Layer disc, suggests KB2575215.

Moral of the story:

Do not try to burn data of 46GB to BD-R Dual Layer or 23GB to BD-R Single Layer disc, in Windows 7- you will not succeed! 🙂

    The disc will read in a Samsung Blu ray player. Windows wont read its own disc.
