right clicking on the drive gives me 4 options. 1.open with realplayer, 2.open with windows media player, 3. view filesand 4 do nothing. I would be happywith the choice to use powerdvd, even if the dvd didn't autoplay. Anyone else got a suggestion?

If you have XP then you should be able to use the Set Program Access and Defaults...

Start->Settings->Control Panel->Add/Remove Programs->Select the Set Program Access and Defaults on the left->Find PowerDVD in there somewhere and set it as default media player.

Try Control Panel-> Folders Options-> File Types. Find DVD Video, hit Advanced and enter the proper info.

Also make sure you have PDVD set right.

See attachment.
