Thanks to all,
I think digital guru got it right on his first reply. His second reply should have been addressed to the other fellow, but no harm done and thanks for the help. You were a lot more helpful than the woman at roxio. I was able to get the hd feature to work to a limited extent. First disc burned fine in hd, but playback on my pioneer bd player did not work.
BTW, I did try to download roxio toast pro, but it would not download properly. That's why I drove to st. louis and the apple store. I tried to work with the people at roxio on the download, but their phone number for tech support was "disconnected" with no further info for another number. Sales people weren't helpful either.
The other bad thing is not being able to get the software updates downloaded. I always get a message toward the end that the "decompression failed."
The update was about 408 mb according to the software update on the roxio website. I would try to download ( via satellite link which takes forever) and get to about 380 mb downloaded and then the message "decompression failed" would appear......Thanks for your help.
