Why would you even own any HD-DVDs, let alone a hundred. They've not even built HD-DVD players for almost a decade and it was clear from the start that blu-ray was going to win that format war.

Also, they haven't *made* HD-DVDs in a decade. What did you possibly buy that counted to a 100 of them.


a whole lot of trying to justify bad decisions

As long as you have a way to play them hd dvd is a super cheap way to get a bunch of movies. Hell i might grab a cheap player and grab a bunch.

Here is a list and discription for some good software choices.

If what I said doesn't makes sense... it's because you don't want it to make sense.

I'm not mis-quoting you, i summed up your statements, which can be best summed as "I made a really bad decision but look how cheap i can use this s***ty format now!"

I found a way to "Update" the PowerDVD that is on my PC... It likely won't do s***.

I will probably just get a different software, if it can't handle blu-ray and DVD and HD-DVD. Funny thing is, I just pulled the drive from a PC that I am selling, and windows 7 had plenty of free software that ran the drive with no issues.

WIN 10 has a Raging middle finger for pretty much everything I ever bought... Don't even get me started on my $500 Flatbed photo scanner that I use for my Photo restoration business. I was not happy with Canon's answer to why they won't upgrade the drivers... (Hint: they offered me a $100 discount on a NEW product that was not 9600x9600 DPI)

No actually. I made a REALLY good decision, that ass***s can't see the truth in, because they are busy patting themselves on the ass, and typing loudly on their MECHANICAL KEYBOARD... Sound accurate?

I don't use a mechanical keyboard, so no?

The first 2 pages of my Binder full of HD-DVDs:

-300
-A Scanner Darkly
-Accepted
-Aeon Flux
-Alpha Dog
-Anchorman
-Animal House
-Apollo 13
-Army of Darkness
-Assassination of Jesse James by the coward Robert Ford
-Being John Malkovich
-Beowulf
-The Big Lebowski

All are 16:9 1080p at lower compression than Blu-ray. These few movies cost me about $2 total.

It can handle all of those. You are doing something wrong. I can't tell you what exactly, because you've given so little detail, but if PowerDVD is giving you an error about MPEG2s, you're doing something wrong. Are you using legit discs? For 50 cents each, probably not.

Funny thing is, I just pulled the drive from a PC that I am selling, and windows 7 had plenty of free software that ran the drive with no issues.

There's no free software that runs Blu-Rays. And why can't you use the same "free software" that you did before for DVDs?

Buy a 10 tb HDD and forget about actually using the discs to watch the movies? Extract to ISO/mkv or something and create digital library.

I did 0 research on this response. No clue what drive/software would be needed. That is the solution I would pursuit though.
