BD-R media cannot be formatted with “Live File System” on Windows Vista

When you insert a new blank BD-R media (Blue Ray -R) media into a Blue Ray writer on a Windows Vista SP2 computer and attempt to “Open” it in Windows Explorer, the unformatted media will need to be formatted in order to become useable by Windows Vista SP2. The formatting option “Live File System” is selected by default but is not supported in Windows Vista and you get a screen prompt saying “The file system is incompatible with this disk.”
