    Does anyone know if it will play DVDs from the hard disk?

    Yes it does... sort of...

    You have to have some way of mounting the hard disk copy as a 'drive'... as soon as you do... MCE2005 will see it and start playback...

    There is a freebie add on for MCE2005 called 'My DVD collection' which allows you to catalogue all your DVD's (both as discs and on the hard drive)...

    Then you select the DVD from an MCE standard style menu (inlcuding filtering by actor/director/etc) and the film starts to play...

    Mark.
