I have the above DVD player on my IBM thinkpad which
played DVD's perfectly until I installed XP. It shows
West Wing in the drive but wont play it. The driver does
not seem to be available from IBM or Hitachi. How can I
play DVD's again !!!!!

You'll need to purchase and install a Windows XP compatible
DVD decoder.

Typical. I install super Microsoft XP which then disables
many of the functions I had previously and I then have
to pay for the privelage of getting it working again.

Just find the CD that contains WinDVD or PowerDVD and reinstall it. You do
not have to purchase anything new - unless of course you have lost the
software.

Even then, you can usually get the software replaced ;)
