The client probably doesn't know what they are talking about but I believe Pyramix lets you do some non standard DDP tricks. Let the Pyramixers chime in.

DDP as used for CD replication = 44.1 16bit
However, what can be confusing is that Soundblade f.e. will let you make high resolution secure players at up to 96/24 which behave exactly like the 44.1/16 ones that are often used for client reference.

Haven't tried this lately. Would be neat if soundBlade could burn 24/96 "DDP" directly to DVD-A.
but I use Minnetonka DiscWelder Bronze for the task, rare as it is.

No weird DDPi variations in Pyramix (where on earth did that come from?). it's 16/44K1 al lthe way and compliant with everyone else's DDPi.

I knew something allowed you to make non standard DDP's . I guess it was Sonic not Pyramix. I use neither.

IMAGE.DAT is really a WAV file.    You could try an experiment - create the DDP normally, than replace IMAGE.DAT with a 24-bit WAV version of the CD audio, renamed IMAGE.DAT and see what happens when you try to play it in HOFA, Sonoris, or any DAW that supports DDP.

Nothing I have here will play an image.dat file with the suffix changed to .wav. Are they really the same?

Sequoia/Samplitude will play it after a dialogue asking the bit depth, sample rate, and whether big endian or little endian format.  The IMAGE.DAT file is missing that info in the header.
