Up the Blu-Ray Creek
on Sep 13, 2007 at 11:01:47 am

I think I'm up the blu-ray creek without a paddle. I bought a blu-Ray burner from FastMac and installed in my my non-Intel G-5 Mac. I bought Adobe Encore CS3 which only works on my Intel Macbook Pro. I bought Toast 8 which I installed on the same Mac as the blu-ray burner.

So I author a blu-ray disc in Encore and output it as a Blu-Ray disc image. I then switch the drive over to the non-intel Mac and use Toast 8 to burn the disc using the VIDEO TS interface much like I would do for a standard DVD to a BD-R disc. I bought the Samsung BD-P 1000 player which claims to play BD-R discs. It does not play.

My question is: Can you burn a blu-ray disc image as a data disc or in the Video-TS interface of Toast 8 and expect it to play anywhere?

Thanks for any tips.

Blu-ray does not use a VIDEO_TS folder at all in its file structure, so what you are doing will never work.

Instead, build a BD image, and then burn from the BD image using an application that supports burning BD images directly.

On Windows, ImgBurn can do this. Don't know if there's a similar application for the Mac (although I thought the latest version of Toast did - check their Help to be sure).

Toast supports the same thing
