    As VLC can be controlled via command line, you can create a shortcut on the desktop with something like:

    Code:
    vlc.exe dvd://d: -f
    Which opens VLC, runs the d: drive and then puts it fullscreen (in that order, with a small delay in between each).

    VLC too hard to use?! Really?!?!
    Well unless its got some easy peazy mode that I've not found - yes.

    To use it I click on media -thats not obvious to a non-techy is it
    Then Open Disc - I don't want to open a disc - i want to play it

    And then finally I press Play

    again I can post you some OEM ones!
    And again - I decline your kind offer on the grounds that its not kosher

    regards
