Convert Your HD DVD to Blu-ray

By Dave

Wired’s How-to Wiki has a post up that talks about converting your HD DVD’s from their quickly dying format over to the “new hotness” of Blu-ray. In case you didn’t hear, HD DVD is going the way of Betamax, and so it is time to embrace Sony’s Blu-ray format. All of you PS3 owners out there are laughing at us Xbox 360 users with our HD DVD attachment drive, I’m sure.

While it seems like it would be a major pain to move your content over to the format that will become the standard for high definition DVD watching, it might just save you money, so that you don’t have to re-buy your favourite movies later.

What You’ll Need:

  • A Windows machine with a fast processor
  • An HD-DVD drive
  • A Blu-Ray burner
  • 30GB of free disk space, at least, though 40GB or more is recommended
  • An internet connection to download all the software you need

Check out the Wiki page for more information. I almost think major studios should switch our HD DVD’s for Blu-ray ones. Consumers shouldn’t have to be hit so hard thanks to being an early adopter. Will you convert, or is it HD DVD until the end?
