Problem playing an edited Blu Ray on a PS3

I work as a video cameraman( ex BBC + ITV) on various projects with a
colleague and we are in the process of going full HD. We have the HD
cameras ( Three used on the project... Sony Z1, AE1 and HVRS270E HDV
quality) edit facilities, and have just produced a blu ray version of a
wedding we did as a favour and technical test. All went well and the
blu ray disc plays ok on his PC player in HD but when I tried to play
on my PS3 I had the following problem. It comes up with a message" this
is an invalid disc...error code underneath 80029906" It shows on the
ps3 menu as BDMV BD-R but wont play from there as it gives the error
code. The PS3 is a couple of months old and has the latest updates, and
it plays Blu ray movies and DVDs without problem.
The disc was produced using DVD IT PRO HDand the only hint as to what may
be wrong is a suggestion from a website to make the disc direct from
the edit timeline( sonic ) rather from a disc image as we
have done. Can anyone help?

What is the brand and the model number of your blu-ray burner?
What is the PS3 model that you have (40GB or 80GB)?

You must go to DVDit HD and download a patch for PS3, then reauthor and it will work in PS3.

Are you sure because apperently Sony has dropped support for several Blu-ray burner (LG products mainly) and thus each time you update your PS3 (now 2.53 version) you add to the blacklist. Which means when you burn something with an LG burner, it won't work on PS3. Also, I am not sure that the 40GB PS3 plays authored blu-ray. But maybe I am wrong.

This has nothing to do with PS3 updates, it has to do with DVDit HD authoring, it has been well documented on Sonic website that unless you have a patch for PS3 it will not work, and about LG burner, that has nothing to do with it either, burner just burn whatever you throw at them.

This is NOT true as I ONLY have LG burners and my PS3( with current firmware 2.53) will play anything they produce SD or Bluray. Authored with DVDlab Pro2.0, DVD Architect or the latest TMPGenc Author 4. This must be the authoring program.

Ron, this is very reassuring. There has been much talk about firmware upgrades removing the ability to play authored BDs in the PS3, and while it seemed like so much FUD and no one could confirm whether it was true or not, I've actually avoided updating my PS3 firmware because I didn't want to take a chance. I have an LG burner as well.

Thanks for confirming that it still works. I may actually update when HD movie downloads come to the PS3...

One last question. All of you have a 40GB PS3? Thanks for your answer.

Thanks everyone

We tried re authoring from Sonic DVD authoring (my original information was second hand and not correct..sorry) and had exactly the same fault code.The disc was authored on DVdit HD pro....obviously further research will be necessary. Annoying as I bought the PS3 to play our authored BD's. The good news is that it plays movies/ authored DVD's/ and games fine. I will report back when we sort it out. My business partner used to be a top technical manager for Maxell so has all the technical knowledge to solve this problem if it is solveable. Cant see why Sony should stop you playing authored BD's . The problem is that if we supply a completed project to a customer it may be played on a PS3 so we need to know if this will work.
