    Why an AACS Folder on Blu-ray Disc Produced by 3rd Party Software Using Premiere Elements 13's Blu-ray ISO Image?

    A.T. Romano Level 7

      Premiere Elements 13 now offers a burn to ISO Image as an alternative to burn to Blu-ray disc. When this ISO Image is taken to a Blu-ray disc in a program such as ImgBurn, Nero, and CyberLink PowerProducer, the Blu-ray disc is found to contain 3 folders

      AACS Folder
      BDMV Folder

      CERTIFICATE Folder

      The BDMV Folder and CERTIFICATE Folder were expected, not a folder named AACS.


      As far as we can determine an AACS Folder on the disc = "This movie is encrypted". What is the purpose of an encrypted Blu-ray disc format on Blu-ray disc for a home movie?

      And, what are the implications of this AACS Folder on the Blu-ray disc when the disc is played back?


      More details are in my blog post.

      I am hoping that someone has worked with the AACS Folder before and had some insights into its role in this particular situation.


      Thank you.
