Good day. I purchased a Lacie Blu Ray external burner about 2 months ago, and have only just had the opportunity to take it for a test drive. I purchased some memorex BD-R's for my media, which ended up being a mistake. I used Adobe Dynamic Link in Premiere to feed into Encore, clicked the appropriate settings for a Blu Ray burn through my external Lacie, and let Encore take it from there. Transcoding apparently worked fine. The actual burn failed at different points, generating Microsoft C++ errors and another error (Adobe notification). After generating 4 or 5 expensive coasters, I smartened up and bought a Sony re-writable BR disc. This worked flawlessly in 3 different sessions.
Question: what brand of BD-R's have people used with success? I would like to start archiving some of my footage which is currently on my video raid and a back up external hard drive.
