Sorry my first post is a cry for help. Hopefully, when I get a bit more experience I'll be able to give something back. I recently bought a licence for AnyDVD HD to back up my precious Blu-Ray movie discs to HDD; after using AnyDVD Ripper I then use TsRemux to give me a "movie_name".m2ts file (just the movie and main sound track) which I save to an external (eSATA) 1 TB drive. This can hold 40-50 movies and is a lot cheaper than burning to BD-R, as long as I don't drop it that is. The movie can then be replayed, either on the PC (24" monitor) or on a media centre PC in the living room (42" LCD TV), using Nero Showtime (Version 18.104.22.168) in file mode. All the previous 30-odd discs have been no trouble; now GOLDEN_COMPASS is. The rip proceeded without incident and I had the usual BD-MV file structure on the HDD; in this case there were two main files in the STREAM folder (20.0 and 24.1 GB). As usual I selected one of these to check play in Nero Showtime - result - Showtime froze without opening the display window and had to be stopped in Task Manager. I tried the same action using PowerDVD (Version 7.3.3516a) in file mode - result - PowerDVD showed a blank, full screen display window showing Video: VC1 414.51 Mbps. and nothing further. I could exit the program normally. Oddly, and only discovered by chance, Nero Showtime plays the HDD copy perfectly in "Play from folder.." mode!? I could, therefore copy the whole BD-MV structure to my external drive and play that way but I am loath to as the film will then be taking up twice as much disc space as necessary. I have no idea what is going on and the disc is neither BD+ nor Java. The AnyDVD info file is attached. Please help.
