If you can‘t burn a Blu-ray disc in Final Cut Pro X, Motion, or Compressor

Learn what to do if you see an alert and your hard disk has sufficient space.

When burning a Blu-ray disc in Final Cut Pro X, Motion, or Compressor, you might see one of these alerts:

  • “There was an error burning your disc. Please check to see if your boot volume has sufficient space.”
  • “Finishing: Could not create the DVD. Please check to see if your boot volume has sufficient space.”

You may also notice that the disc burning process slows between 57% and 64% and may take several hours to complete.

If you encounter any of these issues, first verify that your hard disk has enough available space to burn a Blu-ray disc. Then try using a different type of Blu-ray disc blank media to resolve the issue. For best results, use a BD-R disc or an unused BD-RE disc. If you need to use a BD-RE disc that contains data, use Disk Utility to perform a Complete erase. (Do not use Quick erase.)
