    Hd-dvd As Dvd... Error Result Code = -50

    Confusing the two? What are you talking about? I'm well aware of the details of Blu-ray vs. HD-DVD and how HD-DVD is being phased out... that's not what's in question here. The question is why can I build a perfectly good Blu-ray disc image and not an HD-DVD disc image using the same QuickTime file. When building the Blu-ray image, I get no errors, when I build the HD-DVD image, I get the error -50. My client is using an HD-DVD player at a trade show and that's why I need to deliver them a burnable image in HD-DVD format that can be burned on a regular DVD media.

    Hd-dvd As Dvd... Error Result Code = -50

    I'm trying to make an HD-DVD disc out of an HD QuickTime file saved in the ProRes 422 codec (which is installed on my system). I'm using the following settings: No Menu Auto-play disc on insert Automatic Enoding at Best Quality DVD as the Format I want the disc to be burned onto a regular DVD so I select "DVD" in the "Save Disc Image as:" dialog... this is what I do when I burn a Blu-ray image that works (from the same exact QuickTime file). So what happens is, Toast goes through the whole process of encoding the video, etc, then when it gets to 100% complete, the progress bar goes away, then I'm presented with a dialog that reads: Couldn't complete the last command because of a Mac OS Error. Result Code = -50 Anyone have any idea on this? Anyone else get this error? I've had no issues making a Blu-ray from this video file, but the HD-DVD file won't work.

    Blu-ray On Dvd On Ps3... Not Quite Working.

    Special thanks to Patatrox... he was super nice personally helping me through this Blu-ray on DVD issue. I'm happy to report that the 9.0.2 updater successfully writes a valid AVCHD disc playable on the PS3 (I'm running the latest PS3 firmware). Aside from running the 9.0.2 Toast, I was informed you need to select "DVD" as the disc format when creating the disk or disk image. I'm sure they'll update their literature to reflect that. Thanks again Roxio Toast team!

    Rockage. I'll be testing it pronto. Thanks for the quick resolution... hopefully! :B

    This is really disappointing. I understand there is an issue with the PS3 specifically, but Roxio should redo their advertising with an asterisk that states it doesn't work with the PS3... which lets face it, is probably the most popular Blu-ray player on the market right now. Other than this feature, there's not much new in 9, so buyer beware until it gets resolved.

    Blu-ray On Dvd On Ps3... Not Quite Working.

    Well, I will be straight up honest, that was one of the main selling features that got me to upgrade... I still want the version 9 upgrade because I like to be up to date, but really, other than that feature, this update didn't do anything for me at all over what I had with version 8.

    If this is true (which seems to be after my tests) why is Roxio calling that out as a major feature of the HD/BD Plug-in? Here's a direct quote and link to the page... HD on DVD! You don't have a Blu-ray burner yet? No problem. With Toast 9 and the HD/BD plug-in you can burn high-def video content on standard DVD discs and play them back on Blu-ray or HD DVD players! This is an innovative way to get between up to 30 minutes of high-def content on affordable DVD media.
  8. I recorded some HD footage from my EyeTV 250 Plus. I then exported to Toast 9. I then selected "Blu-ray Video" as my disc format. My video showed up on the right hand side: MPEG-2, 1280 x 720, 59.94 fps with a Dolby Digital 5.1, 48000 Hz audio track. So I selected "No Menus" and "Auto-play disc on insert" and "Play all items continuously". Encoding was set to "Automatic" and the quality I set to "Best". So... I burn the files onto a blank regular old DVD disc and put it in my PS3 (with the new 2.20 firmware) and the disc shows up in the Videos section as "Data Disc" and once selected just lets me navigate the folders on the disc. Normally selecting the disc icon in the XMB will launch the disc. I was able to navigate to the streams folder (I believe that's what it was called) on the disc and play the video from there by selecting the actual MPEG-2 video clip and it played fine (though the encoding was kinda choppy and sluggish). So my question is... how do you burn a Blu-ray formatted disc onto a regular DVD like advertised by Roxio and have it play like a normal disc on a Blu-ray player (in my case, the PS3)?
