    BDMV Folder


    I'm trying to burn some video files onto a Blu-ray disc using ImgBurn. According to instructions I should have two folders for this purpose, BDMV and BDAV. I am supposed to type these into the Source Box along with the Certificate. Big problem for me is when I type these letters ImgBurn says the files do not exist. This has been dogging me for days as I cannot locate these files/folders.The Blu-ray discs are brand new and I guess the information is on them but try as I might, they are nowhere to be seen. Where can they be? Help required urgently to locate them would be much appreciated.

    Depends on what you mean by "some video files" and "a Blu-ray disc"

    If you are looking to produce a BDV-compliant Blu-Ray video disc suitable for playback on a home video player, the "video files" need to be converted into a BDV-compliant format, and then authored into the proper file structure that your burning program is expecting. ImgBurn cannot do this; it is expecting all of the above to have already been done by the appropriate video software. That is why ImgBurn cannot find these files/folders - you haven't created them yet.

    If you are just looking to make a Blu-ray data disc containing a random assortment of non-compliant video files (.mp4, .wmv, .avi, etc) then you can simply tell ImgBurn to make a UDF-format data disc and drag the files into the source window. Many Blu-Ray players have codecs built into their firmware designed to play "user-provided video files" and might be able to play such a data disc as-is.

    Thank you mike s. I thought something was amiss when I couldn't locate those files, now I know why. I am trying to do the latter task which is to burn video mp4 files to a Blu-ray disc so that hopefully should be pretty straightforward. Your reply is much appreciated, thank you.
