    I have tried to search for a real beginers guide to backing up hd dvds. I have downloaded some mkv films, but i do not know how to put them on disc, what software to use, what Discs to use, etc.

    There seem to be a few people on here asking the same questions, and i wondered if there was a guide to explain all this.

    Thanks in advance to anyone who helps

    To backup and HD-DVD, you need an HD-DVD drive firstly.

    If you acquired hd movies the way i think you have, then they arent hd dvd iso's (images). They are rips using x264 codec. Your best bet would be to just stream those files directly to your hdtv using GOM player and acquiring the coreavc codec. That program/codec combo will play the mkv files on your computer.

    The task of converting those back to a ripable iso would be a waste of time, since you will lose some quality by doing it have to re-encode all of that data, and burn it to a disk.

    Just stream it to your hdtv from your computer, clean, easy, cheaper, and higher quality of image.
