    ok dumb question here - but i am ripping one of my owned HDDVD discs to my hard drive using anydvd (right click the fox and choose rip HDDVD).

    i knwo that with ripped DVD's i can double click on the Video_TS.ifo file to launch the movie.

    with a ripped HDDVD, which file to i launch to play the movie? (I have an HDCP compliant video card and tv and i have cyperlink for playing the HDDVD movies.)

    Use the 'Open movie file on hard disk drive' option by clicking on the down arrow just to the right of the 'drive' icon which is just below and to the right of the 'play' button on the lower left side of the player. Select the movie folder not the individual files. You must have PowerDVD Ultra for this to work.

    if i go into cyberlink and go to open folder from hard drive, and browse to the rip folder, it wont let me choose it (the OK button is disabled).

    and i tried double clicking on the .xpl file which launches cyberlink, but i just get a black screen.

    if it matters, the title in question is Miami Vice.

    it sure does.

    an if i play the movie from the attached hddvd drive, they play just fine. and if i click on some of the other files in the ripped folder it will play portions - like one of the menus or one of the bonus features or something. but i cant find a file that launches the full active main menu.

    Is Miami Vice the only disc you have this problem with? Do you have problems playing any other rips?

    i ripped a few others and i get the same thign with them.

    although now when i go to open movie from hard drive in powerdvd ultra the OK button is enabled but when i click OK i get the following error:

    FSE_FAILED: Failed to Open the File.
    Using File "".

    i have tried 3 different movies that i ripped with anyDVDHD.

    That sounds like the error you get when you try to play files that are on another computer on a network. If that's the case, you need to map the drive to your local computer.

    Better yet, put the movie on your local hard drive because playing HD movies across a network can be problematic if your network is not fast enough.

    that seemed o do the trick - i mapped a drive to the network folder where the movie was stored and and now the movies play. network is gigabit ethernet so speed seems ok.

    only remining problem is that when i open clerks 2, it loads the menu but there are no optiosn displayed so i dont kwno hwo to actually play the movie from there.

    although it does the same thign if i play the movie right from the HDDVD disc in cyberlink too.

    Make sure that 'Enable mouse in HD DVD' is checked in the Power DVD configuration menu.

    i just checked and the enable mouse option is already checked. but just to clarify, its not that i dotn knwo how to select the play movie option, its that there is no play movie option displayed on the screen. just the menu background and animation.

    I haven't seen anyone else with this problem. Can you play the EVO file directly by right clicking on it and selecting 'Open With' option to select PowerDVD?

    i tried the largest one (almost 10 GB) called feature1.evo and it opened cyberlink and just sat at a black screen. the only evos that opened and played were some of the special features.
