    Sorry for some basic questions, but I am looking for hours with no help.

    I ripped a HD-DVD Heartbreak Kid to my hardisk using AnyDVDHD. I have PowerDVD and can play HD-DVD well with a Xbox-HD player.

    Now I have all these evo files that I can not play with PowerDVD.

    Do I need a different player. Is there a guide somewhere how to play ripped HD-DVD's from a hardisk.

    Any insight would be highly appreciated.

    Hey Eck

    I see 4 solutions in ascending frustration factor, the first three I have used myself:

    Install earlier version of PDVD that allows playback from hard drive, my fav is build 3319a.

    - or -

    Create an .iso using IMGburn 2.4 from HD-DVD using either the folder on hard drive or original disc. Mount said image and playback with your current PDVD.

    - or -

    Use Nero Showtime w/HD-DVD_bluray plugin to playback, mileage may vary on this one from disc to disc.

    - or -

    Install new to the block ARCsoft Total Media Theater player.

    solution #4 finally worked out. Tested with HD-DVD. Will try tonight with Blue-Ray. Much better/easier player then PDVD. Can highly recommend.
