Thanks for your reply.
There is one folder 'HVDVD_TS' and in that, 31 various .BUP .IFO and .EVO
It looks good.
Perhaps I am under the misconception that my gear can play this (?) I have four high-end relatively new (within 1 year) pieces of hardware that can play a DVD. Is it difficult to find a player that can play an HD authored DVD? The most common response is "error disc".
Currently Being ModeratedJun 12, 2006 6:39 PM (in response to Melanie Godfrey-Smith)A G5, or any Intel Mac can play a HD DVD red laser authored in DVD SP as a HD DVD.
The new Toshiba HD player can also play these, but there are issues with menus. In those cases, stay with tracks only as first play.
RCA and Samsung are now both shipping HD DVD players. No word on those.
That's the most recent info I have.G5 2.5G 4.0 RAM, Mac OS X (10.4.5), Radeon ATI X800 Video Card 256 MBs RAM
I hadn't anticipated that by authoring an HD project I was running smack into the HD-DVD / Blu Ray question. Have done some reading and now know what the problem is. Got the disc to play on a G5 and am aware of just how few machines out there will accept this kind of thing at present. Will build my full version in SD, convert to HD and burn them both (red laser) with hopes there will be a more extensive choice for players in a couple of years.
