    Everytime I try to burn a movie on a brand new BR disk, I get this message, even if the file is only 3GB: “Untitled BD” is too large to fit on the disc. Remove some files and try again.

    What is it wrong? The Disk quality? or something else....

    I use High Sierra on a Dual 3.46Ghz Mac Pro and burning from the finder.

    Any help is appreciated. Thank you

    What format does the 3GB video file have? Maybe you can use MediaInfo to find out resolution, data rate and codecs used if QuickTime Player or VLC or Finder are no help.

    You also marked this thread as resolved, maybe you should undo that in order to get more views.

    And what size BD disc do you use? 25 or 50GB?

    Unless things have changed, if you are trying to make a BluRay disc to play in a BluRay player, you can't do it from Finder. You'll need something like Roxio Toast, with it's BluRay component, and an external BluRay burner drive.

    Made it play with what? A BluRay player, or on your Mac?

    Are you trying to burn a BluRay disk image to a blank BluRay disc in a drive capable of burning BluRay disks?

    This may work sometimes, but if you are starting out with a video file, not a disk image, then you need an authoring type application like Toast to create the file structure needed for a typical player. Otherwise you are saving the data file to a the disk, like you are saving it on a hard drive, which is something a computer can read and play. I don't think there are players that can read a data file.
