I have a number of HD-DVD's .., what drive are you using to read these discs into your system ...?

The cheapest and most fuss-free solution would be a Xbox 360 HD-DVD addon drive, which you can connect via USB 2.0 to your PC.

AFAIK most if not all the internal HD-DVD ROM alternatives featured a PATA connector, for which you need a SATA male to IDE female adapter nowadays.

I have a number of HD-DVD's that I would like to salvage. If you don't mind, what drive are you using to read these discs into your system and how are you making the connection(sata, usb, etc.)?
I use an LG GGC-H20L SuperMulti internal SATA drive. It's very rare nowadays but there is a used one on Ebay for $69.95 US

5) Backup option grayed out. Can only convert to mkv

1) 300
2) Warner Home Video
3) 1080p/VC-1
4) DDPlus 5.1
5) Fails almost immediately when trying to backup. I can rip some individual tracks, not the main track however as it encounters media errors after about 15 minutes. I was able to build a ddrescue image of the hddvd, but I'm unable to pair it with a discatt.dat as the backup immediately fails and never generates one.
6) Debug log

Any idea why I can't get 5.1 Audio on my HD-DVD rips? Blu-Ray is working just fine.

I get audio, just not 5.1. So far I've tried:
