    i keep trying Jungs guide ... and keep falling at the first hurdle

    boot up PC
    insert HD-DVD into my LG BD-HDDVD combo drive
    scan it with AnyDVDHD
    open a DOS prompt
    goto the directory with eac3to
    run eac3to D:\ (where D is my optical drive)

    and i get the error

    source file "D:\" not found

    this happens with EVERY disc, and i have absolutely nothing else accessing the drive at the same time, and nothing else running.

    make sense to anyone?

    using the newest version of eac3to

    What is the Drive letter of the optical reader you are trying to use?

    Works fine for me, what operating system are you using, if it's XP do you have the UDF 2.5 driver installed?

    i have installed the newest UDF Drivers i could find, and now it works, but it says

    HD DVD / Blu-Ray disc structure not found.

    I assume it was the Toshiba UDF drivers. As to why it still doesn't work I don't know. Can you see all the files on the disc in windows explorer?

    Yes, make sure your UDF 2.5 driver is working properly. The AnyDVD UDF driver can only be used by the ANyDVD ripper. I have added some notes on this to the guides thread (where it may have been better to post this query!).

    If you are still having problems with whatever driver you are using I would strongly suggest googling "Toshiba UDF2.5 driver".

    instead of running eac3to d:\ try this:

    cd HVDVD_TS\

    if it does not work, rip the hd dvd to your hard drive first.

    If you plan on doing this repeatedly I would fix your UDF driver.
