I hope Markis still around. He didn't ask but I had a couple of minutes to play around.
I downloaded the free trial of "GoldWave". I have used it before and it is a great audio editor.
GoldWave has the ability to convert the 24 bit Flack-HD files to 16 bit flac file. It did that very quickly.
Any of the Audio Create applications worked fine with that 16 bit file including Create audio DVD.
These old ears of mine could tell the difference between the 24 and the 16 bit files when played with VLC (player (free). I would image that there would be a difference playing the files with equipment designed to play 24 bit flac files.
