I have tried burning a HD DVD in DVDSP, but when I put it into a Samsung HD DVD player it won't play. I am burning using a DVD-R disk, DVDSP version 4.2.2.  Can anyone help me? Thanks.

    You want an HD-DVD (the Toshiba format that is now extinct) or do you want a Blu-Ray disc?

    Does your Samsung player play HD-DVD formatted discs, or does it play Blu-Ray?

    Are you sure the player is actually an HD DVD player?  Or is it a Blu-ray player?   The HD DVD format was abandoned by all manufacturers a few years ago - losing out to Blu-ray.   If it's a Blu-ray player you're using, it will play standard DVDs and Blu-ray discs, but not HD DVDs.

    Toshiba was the only company to make HD DVDs. I have one of those players (Wrong bandwagon!)

    I am using HD in the generic sense (1080p or in my case 720p).  I have exported my video from FCPX in 1280X720p format.  I used compressor with the HD setting (vs SD); and imported all assets into DVDSP with the preferences setting at HD (720p).  The Samsung player says that it will handle full HD (1080p).  Hope this helps.

    Your player will not play an HD-DVD - for which Toshiba was the only manufacturer to produce players.

     

    DVDSP does not support what you want to do, If you want to play HD content you need to create a Blu-Ray disc.

     

    Try posting in the FCX and/or Compressor 4 forums.

     

    Best,

    Since the Blu-Ray discs I make do not require menus - they just play on insertion and repeat until ejected - I export my sequence from FCP7 without conversion, then use Roxio Toast Titanium to burn the Blu-Ray. If the sequence is short, say under 30 minutes, you can actually burn the Blu-Ray on regular DVD media, which saves some money.

     

    But you will need a Blu-Ray capable burner in either case.

    Unless I have miss-understood.

     

    If putting "Blu-Ray" onto  regular DVD media  (ie AVCHD) then this can be done with a DVD burner.

    Good, I did not know that - all I have are Blu-Ray burners on my workstation.

     

     

    Thanks
