Ok I have a TS file recorded from TV3 on Freeview HD using a DVB-T card in my pc.  Got the TS file converted to a BluRay compatible format using a free tool I found, burnt to a BD-R disk using ImgBurn, disk plays ok in a set-top BluRay player with 5.1 surround sound, same with power dvd on my pc plays no problems.   However I cant access the UDF file system thru windows explorer, the drive just shows up as having no disk in the drive, ISO Buster is able to see whats on the disk no problems but not windows explorer.  I  have some data dvd-r's burnt using the only the UDF file system and windows reads them fine.  Just want to know why I cant read a BD-R burnt with UDF in windows explorer? any help would be appreciated.  OS is XP Pro SP3 with all updates installed.  I havent tried the BD-R on a Vista/Win7 pc yet, for now im assuming Windows XP doesnt support BluRay very well.

found a solution, the BD-R disks I was burning are using the UDF 2.50 filesystem which is not supported in XP, XP only supports upto UDF 2.01. Vista and Win7 both have support for UDF 2.50. However I did manage to find a driver by Toshiba which enables XP to read the UDF 2.50 filesystem, installed it and it worked.
