Burning DVDs to play on Panasonic DMP-BD605 Blu Ray Player

by cherjo / September 20, 2010 3:36 AM PDT

I am trying to burn some DVDs of my photos and videos to play on my Panasonic Blu Ray player, and I get the message that the disc is not compatible with the player. Which type of DVDs do I need to burn to be compatible with the player?

I am using Sony DVD-Rs, and also tried Fujifilm DVD+Rs. It won't accept either one.

I am burning them on my PC, and it does format the disc before hand (automatically). Is that the problem, and if so, how do I get around it?

If anyone can lead me thru the steps to do this, I would be most appreciative!
Thanks in advance
Cheryl

According to the spec.,

it should be capable of playing any types. You are putting both photos and video on the same disc? What program do you use and is the disc finalize?

I tried discs with just videos, and one mixed. I basically "copy and pasted" them onto the DVD. And no, I didn't finalize the disc. How do you do that?? Thanks so much for your help.

"copy and paste" (data disc format)...
by ahtoi / September 20, 2010 12:12 PM PDT

maybe the reason why it doesn't work. Here is what I saw in the spec.; dvd-vr, dvd-video, jpeg(HD), avchd. You need programs that can burn the dvd in these formats for the player to play.

Any suggestions on which programs to use to burn it? I had tried using the RealPlayer program for burning, and it isn't working for some reason. Which program do you use? Does it automatically finalize the disc when its finished? Thanks so much for all your help and patience!

You can copy and paste jpeg photos to it and see if it plays or not (it should).

DVD Flick is a nice basic program for videos
by Pepe7 / September 21, 2010 12:56 AM PDT

For various video formats to DVD, I'd suggest DVD Flick. It's free, and is a no frills application that should work. For photo slideshows you are treading into more complicated waters since some formats don't always end up playable on all (normally) compatible DVD players. That part may require a little more trial and error to get the program that works w/ your panny player. Luckily there are about a million 'slideshow' applications, some of which are free to download and use. Some of the trials actually do enough to at least test it out fully for 30 days.

Did your downloaded movies start playing on your panasonic blue ray after you burned them with DVD Flick? I did that and after an hour or so the same error came up in my panasonic blue ray saying disk is not compatible. HELP

Burn Panasonic Videos to Blu-ray DVD with iDVD
by videoiphone4 / October 2, 2010 12:04 PM PDT

The Panasonic series includes three models of HD camcorders: HDC-SD700K, HDC-TM700K , HDC-HS700K and DMP-BD605 with 3MOS sensor for high quality videos and images. The Panasonic 700 series can record 1920x1080 videos with 60 fps 28Mbps in progressive mode and AVCHD compliant 17Mpbs videos. However, DVD player does not work with the native .mts files, and we should burn Panasonic HD Videos to DVD.

It is great to know that Aunsoft Video Converter for Mac works with 1080p videos from Panasonic camcorders. It is no longer a hard task burning Panasonic videos to DVD with iDVD. The Mac Panasonic video converter also includes fast video editing functions like trimming/splitting, merging/joining .mts before importing to iDVD.
Follow the steps below, and you can find it easy to burn 1080p videos to DVD for playback on DVD player, which is hooked with TV.

While an UNPROTECTED Video DVD should be easy to duplicate with say "ImgBurn" the problem I encounter is that folk try this with Nero/other and copy the "files" but not the Video DVD.

Be as detailed as possible about everything, and perhaps we can assist. Otherwise, we can only guess at what you are working with exactly.

"but will not play on my computer",
by Oldartq / January 23, 2014 1:59 AM PST

this suggest to me maybe the dvd wasn't made correctly. We can't tell you the problem because we don't know the software you use or how it's made. Regular store bought dvd played ok on the BDplayer?
