Using DVD Architect and changed computer from HP zBook to HP ENVY win 10 4k screen.

The iso file is written OK and inside the different files 0 to eg 21 can be displyed separtly by using "any player" or "VLC media player". Trying to start the isofile it doesn´t work. Gets a black screen, What can be made??

"iso" isn't a video file but some software can open it and play the files contained within. Likewise windows 10 will "mount" an iso file as if on a dummy optical drive and allow the files to be viewed and played.

Presumably there is something different about your HP ENVY compared HPzBook? What OS does it have?

Does HP have a community forum? If so that might be the best place to obtain an answer.

@Ingvar-Svensson I use VLC to play my iso file for previewing before committing it to Blu-Ray. What you have to do is 'tell' Windows to use VLC to play .iso files, as shown below.

Normally I use VLC to previewing the iso file in win 10. Normallay no problem , using win 10 on zBook. It works when the iso file is small. But if the iso is around 20-22 GB there is a problem. It feels like all the menus are there but could be displayed separtly . It seems the view program can not find the first page and the rest.

@Ingvar-Svensson I've just played an iso file of 19.9GB with no problem using VLC. Probably a silly question to ask, but I'll ask it anyway. Does the project preview OK in DVDAS?
