My PC Blu-Ray burner/player drive has been giving me 'failed' burns for the past few weeks.
 
Sometimes it will burn just fine, and then it will take 3 or 4 failed attempts to burn successfully.
 
Today, trying to burn the same data, it failed 6 times. I've tried re-booting, thinking it might be a RAM, or memory issue, but no, burns still fail.
 
I think my drive may be going bad, can someone take a look at the Log.txt, and see if it indicates what the issue is?  
 
Win7
 
Thanks!

Went out to the Pioneer Web site and D/L'd the latest firmware(2016), and installed it. Burning Blu-Rays still fail.

laser cleaning disc are horrible,  they were meant for old school lasers that spun the disc and then got a focus lock.  while it was spinning the cleaning disc would do it's job.

 

players now do a focus lock on the disc without spinning the disc and cleaning disc never get the chance to actually clean the lens.  pull the case apart and clean the lens with some alcohol and a q-tip.   you'll have better results, if that doesn't fix the problem then your lens is probably toast and it's time to buy a new Blu ray recorder.

Well, it looks like it may have been a memory issue...just rebooted, and was able to burn 5 Blu disks...so, I guess the issue is solved? If the drive starts failing again, I'll just buy a new one.

Thanks everyone for your help.

Could it be a Blu Ray media quality issue?  Tried any other batches of blank BR disks?

I read online that there are some fake's out there. and they could really be ritek low quality disc's.  you might pay attention to the manufacturer of the disc when your burning software scan's the disc and displays the media info to see if they are actually sony branded disc's or ritek.

Could be, I've been using discs from the same Sony 50 pack, and about 30 have burned ok.

 

Just these days I bought the Pioneer BDR-209D drive. I had been having the exact same problems, bad burns with every media. My blue ray media is SONY BDR x6 25Gb.

 

What I did? No firmware update nothing strenuous.

I eject the tray, took my good blower and blew some air into the drive

Now, it burns everything I throw at it, it is PERFECT!

 

Just needed a good cleaning that's all. These drives have gothered some dust, even though you may have just bought it, it had been a while since they have been manufactured. 

 

My only regret I did not think of doing this from the very start, I through out 4 blue ray discs and a couple of dvd-r DL in the prosess...

 

Hope this helps anyone with similar problems!
