Given this failure, the BD version of the .7z file is looking non-useful for me. However, if I learn how to install the .7z HD DVD file, I'll give it a go, though I may well already have a working disc for that format (not certain, but maybe.)
Just spent some more time with the installed .7z folder and now understand that the program "7zFM.exe" (labeled File Manager) is the GUI interface for file selection and decompression. That's the Windows progrgam to select manually (if not using "right click".)
I also see now that "right click" utilizes "7zG.exe" (labeled GUI) which is automatically fed the necessary file name by the system. Guess I'm just too used to manually selecting programs rather than right clicking.
7z.exe appears to be for DOS environments.
Unfortunately for me, I get the same error message responses with both the self expanding .exe and the 7zFM.exe expansion of the .7z files. With a little luck, my HD DVD ISO is good anyway, but as for the BD version, I appear to be dead in the water, if only due to my player choice
! (Samsung BDP-1000)
1) So, first I tried the .exe and got the above described error messages (AVCHD & HD DVD.)
2) Second I tried the .7z using 7zFM.exe from the free download of 7-Zip 4.57 (the non-Beta version) and got the same error messages (AVCHD & HD DVD.)
3) Finally I tried the BDMV.exe, which expanded correctly, and then used Imgburn to create a DVD iso, but got the same BD player behavior as with the previous .exe or .7z derived ISO.
Again, thanks for your efforts
! Hopefully, my HD DVD disc will fly successfully, at least at cursory glance, it appears to work. Looks like my two BD discs will have to remain on the shelf until I purchase a compatible player
