    Hi - wondered if anyone could give me some clues as to how i can get my xbox 360 hddvd player to work on my pc. My xbox360 disappeared from the house while i was a way on holiday so needing to make do with the pc at the moment. Any info appreciated.

    You need to Google and install something called thdudf.inf so Windows can recognise the drive properly.
    To play back HD-DVD content you will need something like CyberLink Power DVD

    yeah got the drive recognised now ok thanks - so i need software to play them? - what would be the best for the least cost - all suggestions welcomed :-)

    Yep you need the latest Cyberlink dvd software but beware despite me having a good monitor it refused to let me use it claiming its not hdcp compliant(though I meet all the specs)

    mmmm - so may not work on pc as informed

    iirc the latest version of powerdvd doesn't play hd-dvd but v7 does. i seem to remember reading somewhere that they'd removed support from the very latest version

    I can play HD-DVDs fine on my laptop and through my 360, but not from my laptop to my plasma. Both my graphic card and TV are HDCP compliant and connected via DVI.

    Found a program called AnyDVD HD which I might try later, it err... removes the handshake if you know what I mean :whistling:
    Shame it's only a 21 day trial though.

    The only software I know of that can playback HD-DVDs are PowerDVD and WinDVD, both are commercial programs.

    If you want to play them on ur pc you will need to get it working in windows first, then get the power dvd software. If you have hdcp errors then you need to download ANYDVDHD and use that to remove the copy protection. Then your all set.
