Ted, if your burned disc had an M2TS file on it, it wasn't a BluRay disc. It was just a data disc.
How did you burn a disc from Premiere Elements with an M2TS file on it?
I burned it using the normal (one and only way) that you do with PE9!
It definitely is a M2ts file on BOTH disks only the one burnt with PE9 wont play in my player, the other one will.
They both play identically in my computer and their quality is indistinguishable with the original files (1900x1080) on my similar monitor and TV.
I had lots of dissolves and split audio cuts and they all look perfect.
PE9 made the m2ts file that is now on both disks.
Also it is in a STREAM foilder.
If it was data one would think it would simply be in the root folder of the disk?
The PowerProducer added a simple menu to the disk even though I didnt ask for one and I had to start it by pressing Play whereas the PE9 one did not. The latter simply locking up the player in the 'play mode' when I inserted it so I couldn't even open the tray without removing power.
What extension does you PE9 create on your blue ray disks?
Incidently my player specs say it can also play AVCHD disks.
