Default BD Player and BluRay Burner Compatibility

Hello --

Recently I've made some blu-ray projects with Adobe Encore CS4 and burned them onto BD-R 25 media with my LG BluRay burner. Problem is, the only thing that can play these discs back is my PS3. I've tried a few other *brand new* machines, fully firmware updated, and they won't even recognize the disc. This, of course, defeats the point of making BluRays on a consumer burner.

My questions are:

1.) Is there a list of which set-top BD players play BD's made with consumer burners?

2.) Is this a problem that will go away with future firmware updates to existing players that can't play BD-R's or is it a hardware issue?

3.) If Blu-Ray players can play back standard DVD's burned on consumer burners, WHY on earth can't they play their native format back?

4.) When BluRay recorders are (finally) introduced to the US market, will that be the turning point for playing back BD-R material?

Thanks !

kind of a dumb question but are you sure the content is on the disk? Im interested in this as well cuz i am about to get into backing up my BR's. and I'm probaly going to get the same burner if it's the external one.

Nevermind! you said your PS3 plays it. my bad

Default The Disc Is Not Blank

Yep, definitely on the disc. We faced the same issue a few years back when we started burning regular DVD's on consumer burners, and in time the newer the DVD players were (they had no internet hookups then) they were able to play.

I just need to figure out how to solve it.
