1. I created a BD-RE with the ANY! folder renamed to ALL! --> It worked fine on Sony
2. Using the same BD-RE, I mastered it with the ANY! folder, but this time empty --> It worked fine on Sony
3. Using the same BD-RE, I mastered it with the ANY! folder, with its content --> It worked fine on Sony
4. For completion's sake, and since I did not expect the result of step 3, I re-created the original problem by creating a new ISO (from the original BD using the "Rip to image..." option) and burned it onto the same BD-RE --> IT WORKED FINE ON SONY!!!
Now I am totally confused, especially after having spent many hours trying to figure out a problem that does not seem to exist anymore.
To be on the safe side, I think I will remove the ANY! folder on future backups.
Thanks to all.
That's a safe bet. TMT3 refuses to play from folder when there is a subfolder ANY!, meaning that they banned the rename of AACS that Slysoft uses.
It is not much of a stretch of imagination that such restrictions can be implemented by a new firmware of a standalone player, making the old discs with ANY! on them not work.
version 18.104.22.168 with 3D plugin, playing from folder
Must be something to do with the plugin as I have the latest without the plug in and it has no issues
