I burned a DVD on my computer. It plays on the computer, but when I tried to play it on my Blu-Ray player, it would not play and there was an error message saying the disk was "invalid."



The video file has a VIDEO_TS folder with .bup, .ifo, and .vob files.

Used ImgBurn version 2.5.8 to burn the DVD.

The DVD is a Verbatim DVD+R.

My computer runs Windows 7.

My Blu-ray player is a Sony.


Any ideas?

A stand alone blu-ray player, or DVD/CD player for that matter, requires that the disc is processed in a certain way called 'closing'. This process means that the disc is closed and no more data can be added to it. The player in a computer does not require this additional stage to be done for it to be able to play the disc. It sounds like this is your problem.


Your only solution may be to re-burn the disc after looking at the options before you start the process. Look for an option that says 'closed' or 'finished' and make sure it is selected.

I am going to be away until about the 22nd October. Time on-line will be reduced and my internet access may be limited. PMs may not be replied to as quickly as normal !
