As I mentioned in those emails I have an LG BH12LS38. Running 9.0 - 9.2
I burnt DVD's and CD's without issue using k3b - which is a gui frontend
to the cli tools.

Max file size is dependant on the filesystem not the disk, I think UDF
is normally used for Blu Ray so will support files over 2GB.

After those emails I tried burning a BD-R and failed, I think it was
buffer underrun. I have 8GB RAM and was using zfs on a single disc at
the time so more RAM may help.

The disc was recognised as BD-R all started fine just didn't complete.

I would have been running 9.1 at the time - over a year ago.

I have recently upgraded to 10.1 but haven't burnt any disks yet.

BD-R prices are down to a couple of dollars a disk so may be time to try 
again.
