    OK, so I ripped a backup of my Blu-ray disc to HDD using AnyDVD HD.

    (Oddly, the optical disc claims to be 22GB in size with no free space, yet the ripped files on HDD take up only 11GB of space??)

    Now how do I playback the files from the HDD? PowerDVD ultra (v7.03.3516) does appear to recognise the movie folder on my HDD. Is there a trick to this?

    Thanks

    OK, but I read it is possible to playback the BD ripped as an ISO file? How is this done?

    I have made an ISO using UltraISO and written it to a BD-RE using Nero 7. This created a disc which played OK in PDVD. But I couldn't get the ISO to play directly. I assumed it needed to be mounted in a Virtual DVD drive but the one that comes with UltraISO doesn't work. Is Daemon Tools Lite the tool of choice for this?

    Thanks

    I use Daemon Tools Lite to mount all my iso's and it seems to work flawlessly.
