With DVDFAb 8 I can convert a dual layer blu ray down to a writable dvd 9 or 5 if so desired. How in the heck do you convert a 8GB avchd .iso file to a standard definition dual layer dvd? The file size would be the same. I burnt the avchd .iso file to a dvd9 and it plays just fine on my blu ray players, but I want to be able to play this on a dvd player. I was able to convert this file down to a dvd 5, which plays on a dvd player. I'm using the same method in Fab as I did making the dvd 5 ("blu ray to dvd", dragged the avchd .iso file into Fab, select the "dvd9" dropdown option, and push "start". It seems to render, or convert, but it takes forever, then locks up. I've tried other options in Fab like "DVD Creator" (which is what Fab says to do in my case), and the largest file I can get is about 1.6gb before it locks up. I should have picked the dvd9 option first, and then made a dvd5 from that dvd.
I figured Fab would treat this as a regular blu ray disc. From My Computer, when I right-click on the drive in which the avchd disc is in, it reads it as a BD.
As a test in case Fab got corrupted, I popped in a store bought blu ray, and choose the blu ray-to dvd option, and Fab did recognize the files on the BD.
In the "blu ray to dvd option", when I drag the avchd .iso file into Fab, Fab plays the file in the little preview window, but when I try to have Fab source from the disc instead of the .iso file, nothing happens. I swear I dropped the .iso file into Fab and made the dvd5 that way, but I can't remember 100%. But I've tried both methods multiple times. Fab says to "please insert blu ray disc or choose blu ray folder/image file". Remember this same disc plays fine on my blu ray players.
Please any thoughts or help would be much appreciated. I've tried this about 30 times since the original dvd5 conversion, with no luck.

Thanks for your response. But don't you think Fab should be able to convert this file into a mpeg2? especially since I was able to do it for the dvd5 size?
