Part I - Introduction DSD Disc is a format specification Sony developed for writing high-definition 1-bit/2.8-MHz DSD audio files to recordable DVD media (DVD-R, DVD R, DVD-RW, DVD RW), playable on PC's and hardware supporting DSD Disc playback.
The audio quality of a DSD Disc is comparable to a 2-channel SACD audio disc, which also happens to be mastered using 1-bit/2.8-MHz DSD audio files. Playback of DSD Discs is currently limited to Sony VAIO PC's/notebooks, non-VAIO PC's running Windows Media Player 10/11 (with DSD plug-in), Play Station3 and the Sony SCD-XA5400ES and SCD-XE800, whereas the SACD audio discs have much greater hardware playback support.
If you downloaded DSD tracks, like from Wheatus' site, creating a DSD Disc from them is far easier.
You will not need this guide; just follow the instructions they provide about folder structure and burn your disc.

MPC mimics the look and feel of Windows Media Player 6.4, but provides most options and features available in modern media players.
Note that PS3 models can play DSD Discs, even those that don't support SACD.
The advantage of DSD Disc is that anyone can easily create a DSD Disc if they have a 1-bit recorder like the Korg MR-1 and a DVD burner on their PC.

The program is available for all major operating systems, including Linux, mac OS and other Unix-like systems, as well as for Microsoft Windows. The original author, Hungarian Árpád Gereöffy, started the project because he was unable to find any satisfactory video players for Linux after XAnim stopped development in 1999.
