bd-re in bdmv format - works on pc, not on ps3 in ImgBurn Support Posted December 30, 2009 I am starting to wonder about the formatting. The first time I use the BD-RE, Imgburn says it needs formatting and asks if I want to let it do the format, and I say yes. Is this what you do, is there an alternative? Yes, I just let ImgBurn do the formatting. Always a full format (not a quick format), using the ImgBurn defaults (ie, spare areas disabled).
