Premiere Elements burns standard playable BluRays and DVDs. There's no way to chance that.
Though I'm not sure why your disc player would play anything other than that. Have you been able to burn a BluRay from any program (such as Windows MovieMaker) that will work on that machine?
It could be the brand of your discs (NEVER use Memorex) or the speed at which you're burning them. As you say, the discs do play fine on your friend's disc player,so you know the program and your computer are doing their jobs.
Hi Steve, no I have not tried to burn from another program. Are you saying there is no way to set Adobe to create a Blue-ray disk in BDAV format?
You can research this more and I could be wrong -- but all BluRay discs use a BDMV directory structure. BDAV refers to the method of producing the individual video clips (.mts) with stereoscopic sound, which Premiere Elements also does. At least that's what this article says:
I've never heard of more than one flavor of BluRay disc. Premiere Elements produces a standard BluRay disc.
If your player can't play it, it could be related to the quality of the disc brand you're using, your burn speed -- or, unfortunately, the disc player itself. Although most will play home-burned discs, they can vary pretty wildly in their ability handle just any disc. (And R/W BluRay discs are even less compatible with many players.)
Have you tried burning a test disc from MovieMaker yet? That would help you determine if it's the programming or your media that's the issue.
If the BD plays on other players, I would check for a firmware update for the problem player. Be VERY sure to read the instructions for updating the firmware. Matter of fact, I'd print it out, and have it handy. Follow EVERY step carefully, and do not miss any. Perform them in the order in the instructions.
High-quality blank media is VERY important.
