    Please excuse my ignorance here but I'm pretty new to all this.

    I have ripped a Blu-ray disk with AnyDVD HD to my hard disk and tried playback on powerDVD 8 Ultra. However, when I look through my hard disk with powerDVD the Blu-ray folder is not recognized (OK is greyed out) all my SD DVD folders are OK (standard Video_TS folder structure with VBO files etc). I presume I'm missing a step or need some more AnyDVD HD ripping configuration. Any advice would be appreciated.

    P.S. I can playback OK from the disk so all drivers, connections and general HD Blu-ray playback criteria is good.

    You have to make it into an ISO, anything after 7.3 build 3319a won't play from a folder

    Same problem

    I have the same problem and have tried to create an ISO using CloneDVD2 but it wont pick up the BD files when i try to create them.

    Ah... OK... seems a bit of a faf - is this something that cyberlink will fix or is it deliberate. Can I use AnyDVD to make the ISO file or do I need another utility, does this mean also mounting with Deamon tools etc.

    It's deliberate, they removed the option to play from the harddrive after version 7.3 build 3319a.

    are you making an ISO straight from the disc itself or are you trying to make it from the folders already ripped?

    you need to use either clonecd or imgburn to make the ISO

    You can use Imgburn, which is my favorite. And yes, you need to use Daemon Tools. Be sure to use the latest Imgburn though.

    ....or UltraISO.

    I agree with you here, I prefer ultraISO over imgburn.

    I prefer Imgburn, it works very well and it's free

    Thanks for all the responses, I'll have a play around - trying to add Blu-ray to my "mymovies" collection in Vista media center but want it to fly directly from there. Sounds as though I may have to have some intermediate steps here though.

    I have now worked everything i have to do and it works...

    This is the process...

    1. AnyDVDHD - rip BD to HDD
    2. ImgBurn - Convert BDMV folder with the certificates to an ISO file
    3. Virtual Clone Drive - Mount the new ISO file to the clone drive and it will play.

    I haven't remuxed the BD file in this process which means it will be a large file, but at least thats the basics sorted.

    Any advise on what to use to remux the file??

    First off, if you're just making an ISO, no need to rip to the hard drive first. Just enable AnyDVD and use ImgBurn read mode to create an ISO direct from the disc.

    Now, if you want to remux first, that's a different story.

    Tools needed: ImgBurn, eac3to, tsmuxer

    -Rip to hard drive with AnyDVD Ripper
    -Use eac3to against the ripped folder (e.g. eac3to c:\movies\the_movie) This will show you the playlists of the movie. Pick the one you want for the next step
    -In TSMuxer, open the playlist file from the previous step
    -Deselect the streams you don't want
    -Select output to blu-ray folder
    -When that's done, use my makeISO.bat file (see my signature folder->ISO guide) to create ISO from newly remuxed blu-ray folder structure
    -Mount with Virtual CloneDrive

    Tools can be found on doom9.
