whether that MTS file is stored on an optical disc, flash memory or hard disc drive.
"Blu Ray" is not a digital video file type - but it is a technology that allows high capacity data storage using a blue laser to read/write the data bits more densely that regular red-laser DVD devices.
Is the .MTS file same as Blu-ray or different?
They are mutually exclusive. But Blu Ray devices can read MTS data files on optical discs (Blu Ray-burnedonto Blu Ray disc or red-laser burned by regular DVD burners onto regular blank DVDs).
Does a regular DVD burner have a blue laser?
No. As stated, a regular DVD burner uses a red laser to read/write data files.
If no, how could it burn the Blu-ray disc?
The regular DVD burner cannot use Blu Ray discs - the regular DVD burner can use only regular (non Blu Ray) discs. There is no "Blu Ray data file" type. The regular DVD player can burn MTS data files to a regular blank disc - and the Blu Ray play can read that MTS file (backward compatible).
Because high definition video uses lots of space, using regular blank DVDs can be challenging because they don't hold much (compared to Blu Ray blanks). Remember, best video quality comes from least video compression.
If you need more, someone else will need to jump in. Like I said, I am skipping Blu Ray. In my environment, it is already obsolete and irrelevant.
