Bluray media playing on PC but not on PS3 .. !?!

Hi all … I hope this is the right area to post this query … :stuck_out_tongue:

Up till now I was using Optical Quantum BD-25 discs (Disc ID: PHILIP-R04-000), and they played back fine on both my PC and PS3 … I had burnt home made AVCHD/Bluray content on them … Now recently I purchased some BD-25’s of another brand known as ‘Hi-disc’ (Disc ID: INFOME-R30-000) … I know it might sound cheap but the seller whom is selling these on eBay says they’re very good … Have a look at the product here: www.http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=310317857284 … The seller is a very trustable person on eBay as well, whom I’ve purchased stuff from before too …

Anyways, I just burnt some of these new discs and put AVCHD content on them … The resulting discs play back perfectly fine with no hiccups on my PC, which I had used to burn them in the first place … However, they are no even detected in my PS3 … That is, when I insert the recorded discs into my PS3, no icon shows up for the playback of that disc … Burnt three discs and the same problem was with all of them …

My PS3 is a little old now (3.5 years), but it reads all other kinds of discs, including game discs and the Optical Quantum BD-25 discs and Verbatim/Mitsubishi BD-50 discs which I’ve used previously …

But in the defense of these ‘Hi-disc’ branded discs, I have to say that they played back fine on my PC … Just not on the PS3 …

So I’m not sure what could be the problem here …

By the way, I normally use ImgBurn to burn the BDMV and CERTIFICATE folders in UDF 2.50 mode … I burnt them at 2x speed via the Bluray burner that came with my Sony VAIO laptop about 5 months ago … Pioneer BDR-TD03, firmware version 1.00 …

Can anyone see what the problem could be ?

I don’t think you’ll get a very satisfactory answer. Seems like it is just a quirk of the PS3 not liking these particular BD-R disks, and not something you’ve done in the making of the video structure.

Stick with what works, though your Optical Quantum disks are known to be quite hit or miss themselves. I’d use Verbatim disks personally, or possibly the SmartBlu disks made by FTI.

Hello,

I know the MID INFOMER30 (Philips labelled) as a good and reliable medium which can be burned at 4x-6x on LG BH10LS30 or Pioneer BDR205. I had no detection issues on my BR standalone players (Sony, Toshiba).
Try to burn them at 4x, if you can, and look, if Your PS plays them now.

If not, the PS probably doesn´t like this particular MID, as Kerry56 said before.

Kind Regards

The funny thing is, the ‘Hi-Disc’ claim to be 4x burn speed compatible (mentioned on the packing), but in ImgBurn only 2x is shown as a compatible speed … Although having said this I haven’t actually tried to explicit burn at 4x … Will try that and see if the PS3 recognizes it then …

Looks like burning speed for INFOMER30 is restricted by the firmware of your laptop burner.
