Default Re: Can PS3 play burned blue ray disks?

Does it have any weird quirks with reading regular store bought blue rays? My brother already has several blue rays he's burned by...."backing up" his roomate's BR disks. Will the PS3 read these?


Thanks for any answers
If you already have those videos as an .avi file or some of the other formats it would just be easier to put it onto a thumb drive and plug that into the PS3. You can play the files from there and not have to waste expensive discs. Another easy thing you could try is just burning a couple of files to a cd or a dvd and seeing if it will read that. IIRC I think I've thrown a burned dvd into the PS3 and it did play it, so it might work.
