Hi all,

Just recently picked up a Canon HF S100 flash-based camcorder. My BluRay player claims support of AVCHD files burned onto a data DVD. My player also has an SD slot. If I take video footage and put the SD card (from the camcorder) into the slot, the player plays the AVCHD files flawlessly. However if I copy the contents of that flash card onto a DVD+R, the player tells me This disk is incompatible."

Any ideas?

QUOTE Thanks

It's probably because you have there a data dvd with an AVCHD folder structure on it instead of a DVD formatted for AVCHD with the proper lead in and lead out (and other things) for an AVCHD Video-dvd.

The only way to do it on a Mac cheaply AFAIK is using Toast w/ the HD plugin.
