PINNACLE STUDIO 11.1 BURN issue hd-dvd to dvd

    I have a problem with my computer and Duo BluRay/HD-DVD players not
    recognizing my burned DVD. I have a Sony HDR SR1 camcorder 1440x1080i and it
    uses AVCHD software. My HP a1646x media center can burn the hd-dvd or avchd
    to dvd but then I can't play it. Also, the hd-dvd movie burned onto the
    dvd-rw (memorex single layer) doesn't show any KB/data through Windows
    Explorer. I was directed over to this blog, any HOTFIXES?????????

    Is your Burner designed to burn BR or HD DVDs or it is just a normal DVD
    burner for use only with standard DVD formats?

    System info: Windows Media Edition (4gb ram, Nvidia 7950gt) 2005 with a
    Lighscribe Technology DVD /CD writer 200 gb & 400gb HD. The Pinnacle Studio
    Ultimate 11.1 version is supposed to burn HD-DVD & Bluray AVCHD moive data
    onto a normal DVD. It works for some people, just not me. Please give me a
    link to the HOTFIX I need. Thanks,

    Have you checked with either HP or Pinnacle on this problem, it doesn't
    sound like something to do with the Windows Media Center.

    Yes, of course. The Pinnacle "Knowledge base" site page said to contact you
    guys. That's how I found out how to contact you. It's a UDF 2.5 (2.0)
    problem/MSN. I need the UDF 2.5 for x32 MSN Service Pack 2.

    This is User's Forum, there is no "you guys" here. This is not an official
    Microsoft site, everyone on this board is just a users of Windows Media
    Center like you. There are some independent MS Partners and Consultant (and
    probably a few MS employees even) that come here to answer and ask
    questions, but none officially.

    You said that you are using Pinnacle Ultimate 11.1 and it won't burn a
    standard DVD correctly. While it is possible that someone else on this board
    may be familiar with that software and will have a possible solution, I'm
    not sure how this is related to Media Center.

    It still seems you would find more help, if you can find a Pinnacle user's

    Well, on the box of the Pinnacle Studio 11.0 (11.1 patch) it says it is
    possible to burn a HD-DVD or AVCHD formated video file onto a standard
    DVD-RW. It is possible. The problem is with my Media center computer. I have
    burned many times but the problem is reading the burned disc. It is a UDF 2.5
    issue based on the XP 2002 Media Center Edition OS.
    PS: I thought this was an actual MSN help support group, my bad.

    If you Google for

    udf 2.5

    You will find lots of products that will support it, however, none of them
    appear to come direct from Microsoft and I did find any entries by searching
    the MS XP knowledge base for "udf 2.5"

    I think OP is saying that Pinnacle Studio is supposed to down-convert the
    content, like making a DVD into a SVCD.

    I wonder: perhaps PS is in fact burning HD files to the DVD, but
    possibly the OP's player can't play that.

    Obviously just speculation on my part...

    No. The Pinnacle Studio 11.1 software is designed to use regular DVD-RW (R)
    single and dual layered to have HD-DVD and AVCHD video files burned onto
    them. It is the first software in the world like it. There is no
    down-conversion. The files are uncompressed HD and AVCHD Bluray.

    If they are not converted, how does a standard DVD reader see them? Do you
    just end up multiple discs for one movie?
    Jaime, Sep 4, 2007

    Good question. The uncompressed/barely compressed way that Pinnacle software
    burns HD-DVD (AVI. Bundled) video files onto a regular DVD-RW is above my
    knowledge. However, you are correct, more discs are needed. However, Do you
    want to pay $25.00 or .75 cents?

  14. And how does this affect playing HD (burned onto a regular DVD) on an
    HD player, as I mentioned?
    Gene E. Bloch, Sep 5, 2007

    Jaime Guest

    Compressed or not, a standard DVD doesn't output HD content.

    The Pinnacle DVDs aren't to be played on a standard DVD, only on an HD-DVD or

    That makes more sense then, I guess I got lost in the thread somewhere,
    thought originally you had mentioned not playing on a standard DVD player.

    Unless Pinnacle packages a HD DVD / BD player you would need something on
    the order of Cyberlink Power DVD ultra to play the files. Besides DVDs not
    being the ideal media to store such large files they will work fine as long
    as you have software to play the files.

    That doesn't have anything to do with playing on a standard DVD player, that
    is has to do with playing using Media Player on a PC.
