Yes, when i try to install the UDF driver, it says "Cannot install on this PC" it worked briefly for a moment but then hasn't worked since, i have the 32bit version of windows XP (i hear the driver is said to not work on the 64 bit version) any ideas?

Default XBox HD-DVD External Drive

The compressed driver file I am using is named as follows:
XBOX360HAX_XBOX360-1.HD-DVDRom.UDF.Reader.v2.5.WindowsXP-BluePrint.rar

Is this what you are using? It works fine on my WinXP/sp2 system.
Needless to say - I make no guarantees and you are on your own using this driver - I got it elsewhere, but it is working on my system.
hhhhdvd

additional info . . as i recall, this device is originally seen as an XBox device that does not consider the driver in the attached zip file to be valid for the device. But if you let it complete and then go into device manager, it is seen as a Toshiba drive device, and if you tell it to update its driver and point to the attached .inf file, it will apply it.
Attached Files
File Type: zip XBoxHDDVDWinXP.zip (40.0 KB, 10 views)

Downloaded the drivers and PowerDVD7, the free trial. When I insert an HD DVD into my add-on, I get "A disc with an unsupported format in drive E."

I read PowerDVD7 was sufficient. Is that wrong? Or am missing some steps for playback.

Assuming you have properly installed the driver . . if you open up Windows Explorer (the file browser - not the internet browser) can you see your hd-dvd disc in the drive - can you see folders and files on the hd-dvd disc? hhhhdvd

you need an HD DVD player software for the movie to play... windvd 6.5 hd dvd edtion works and windvd 8 works too... not sure about version 7 though. i used my old pc with windvd 6.5 and me new one has 8 on it, which works with both HD DVD and blu-ray.

it's reading the files on the disc... first step in the right direction...

Thank you. I'm glad to know its just the software and my PC took the drivers ok. I think I need to buy an upgrade for v7 to get HD playback, so the free trial edition won't work. Looks like I need to make an investment now for the correct software.
