The properties of a file that was recorded on an HD DVD are not displayed, and the file cannot be copied, moved, or deleted in Windows Vista

When you use Windows Explorer to view an HD DVD on a Windows Vista-based computer, the icon for the file is displayed correctly. However, you cannot complete the following operations successfully for files that are located on the HD DVD:

You cannot view the properties of a file.
You cannot copy a file to another location.
You cannot delete a file.
You cannot move a file to another location.


This problem occurs if the HD DVD recorder records the allocation descriptor in the physical partition instead of in the virtual partition on the DVD.
