Consider me corrected. Anyways, get an XBox 360 HD DVD drive and rip, play the file.

I'm going to have to seriously consider this in case the HD DVD player craps out again.

HD-DVD Rom drives were available in a number of formats including laptop sized internal drives, desktop sized internal drives, drives mounted in cases for usb connection and the already mentioned XBox 360 drive which connects to a computer via usb.
Poke around Ebay to see if something looks like it might suit your needs.

So... what's the skinny on region free and PAL for the A35? I see somebody selling discs on eBay to accomplish both of these things.

It will make the A35 PAL capable and regionfree for DVD. But it will not convert PAL to NTSC. It will output PAL as PAL and NTSC as NTSC. So you need to have a TV or a projector that can handle PAL.

Thanks. I searched around a bit and can't seem to find anywhere with the firmware(s) or instructions?

Troy, thanks for providing these files. I have a number of Toshiba HD-DVD players including an A35, so these may come in handy!

Out of 3 HD DVD players I bought years ago - I only have one left - the HD-A35. The other two have both stopped working.. Looking back, that was a huge waist of money - 3 players and a bunch of movies. Even though I really enjoyed it at the time. On the other hand, I saved a LOT of money on 4k, so I guess we're even

But with regards to my remaining HD-A35, looks like it's going out too - either that, or my disks are degrading. Either way, looks like it's maybe time to say goodbye finally. And I still think HD DVD movies look better - too bad Sony and Toshiba couldn't work together and come up with a single format..

With regards to your comment above, they did, it was Blu-ray...


FWIW, I have 5-6 HD-DVD players and well over 100 movies, 4 BD players and 400 movies, given this pattern I will soon be buying a 4K player and, yes even more movies!
