Vista and Xbox 360 HD drive
I seem to recall reading sometime back that the HD drive from the Xbox 360
works on Vista when you plug it into a usb port. However when I tried this
it Vista seems to load drivers and will play DVDs from the drive but wont
play HD discs.
Is there any other driver which is needed for Vista to play HD discs?

You need software - HD player isn't built into Vista. I think CyberMedia has
one, not sure if WinDVD does yet or not.

Yes, PowerDVD Ultra
(http://www.cyberlink.com/multi/produ...n_112_ENU.html) officially
supports the Xbox 360 HD-DVD drive.
