Most standalone Blu-ray players DEFAULT is to play commercial Blu-ray structures built as BD-ROM on 25gb or 50gb pressed blank disks, like the ones from Blockbuster or Netflix.
You need to find a Blu-ray player that will ALSO PLAY homemade compliant Blu-ray structures built on BD-5 and BD-9 blank disks, they are getting harder to find which maikes me believe this will be a future copy protection issue for Blu-ray players.

Means a Blu-ray format put on a blank 4.7gb disk, also known as size 5
and a Blu-ray format put on a blank 8.5gb disk, also known as size 9.
DVD 5 means it has standard defination on the disk
BD-5 means it has high defination on the disk
both are 4.7gb disks.
same for size 9

But he's not asking about BD-5 or BD-9, but BD-25 which is different as there are a lot more players that will play back BD-25 than BD-9 or 5. If he fully intends to back up to BD-25 then why does he need to have a player that plays back BD-9/5?
And just for clarification you can also write standard definition onto BD-5/9

For two reasons:
1. Many high defination Blu-ray player fans like myself, want to put the directors comments only (or part of anything else)from the source disk on a BD-5 or BD-9 with no compression and we only need space of 4.7gb and/or 8.5gb which makes a BD-5 and BD-9 just right.
2. Also when selecting a Blu-ray player you want your player to be able to play all types standard defination and high defination formats when burning to ANY SIZE BLANK MEDIA.
standard defination = DVD-5 or DVD-9 (4.7gb and 8.5gb)
high defination = BD-5 or BD-9 (4.7gb and 8.5gb)
Blank disks are blank disks its the format that goes on the disk that makes the difference.
