Yes you do.

Arcsoft TotalMedia Theatre 3 ($80 at Dell)
Arcsoft TotalMedia Theatre 5 (good luck finding it)
PowerDVD 7 Ultra (might need 7.3 but good luck finding it anyways)
Nero 8 with some plug in (good luck finding it)
or MPC -HC (free but doesn't play the menus just the .evo files after you do a ton of crap just to get it to work)

I've been searching everywhere for a week because I lost my copy of TMT3.

Wow, never thought we'd be seeing rare HD DVD playback software for the PC. I have TMT5 myself, glad I saved the install file.

I just grabbed one also for $35 - I have an internal Toshiba HD-DVD Rom drive that I shoved into an external case I had laying around - but this one looks far more elegant to be sure.

Update: it arrived today & seems fine.

Just got mine the other day. Going to give it a whirl to see if it plays some of my HD DVD's that have been having problems on my HD DVD ROM in my HTPC. Hopefully it was just a hardware problem and not a disc problem.

It played an opera disc (Swan Lake) that wouldn't play from the xbox add-on or LG multi drive.

The drive comes with a software disc that includes HD-DVD player software on it. Unfortunately the player doesn't work. It apparently was designed and programmed to specifically work on a Toshiba laptop of the same vintage. But the hardware seems to be ok.
