    I'm new to Macs and have always had a PC. I have recently bought a retina iMac with 4ghz i7 processor and 16 ram.

    In windows it was a very simple process with a much less powerful specced pc to use Imgburn to burn a useable blu-ray disk using a bdmv file.

    I love my new Mac for many reasons but I am finding it very unfriendly for this sort of thing and am constantly having to search for work arounds to achieve this simple task.

    I do have toast titanium 12 with the HD add in but after a long conversion process it starts to write the disk but fails after around 20% with a "medium error"

    I have tried different branded disks and set the write speed to 1x both do not change a thing. I am surprised as i thought this Mac would crunch though this sort of task without breaking sweat! I know there is not an Imageburn for Mac but there must be something that works just as simply out there.

    I would be really grateful for any help. Please bear in mind I don't want to know how to rip bd disks but burn blu-ray files onto a blank blu-ray disk that can be used in a commercial player.

    I am no expert on this mate, and I am sure you will get much better answers from others, but...

    You don't happen to have Final Cut Pro X do you? If you do, it can burn simple Blu-Ray disks if you need it to. (No fancy menu stuff, but it can burn playable disks). It's £200 so not really an option if that's all you need it for, but if you are in the market for very decent video editor, I can strongly recommend it - it's really great.


    A bit of Googling found this:


    I can't vouch for it, but it has a free trial version, so you could give it a go.

    Perhaps running Windows in a virtual would be a quick and dirty solution. I keep Win 7 in a virtual to use 3 different multi media related software that have a proven track record and performs well for me.

    It is a shame we only have Toast as a major player on OSX. I wish that Nero jumped into the OSX arena. (yes there are other apps for OSX but none are as established as Roxio)
