Yes, you can play DVD movies on Windows 98, but you must have a DVD player program installed, such as PowerDVD or WinDVD (I recommend PowerDVD as the best I've tried).

DVD needs a DVD drive. A CD drive wont recognise a DV disk

My posting on "were did the plane go?" I only did it as it was,
(1) A story on Internet, and put in the link.
(2) A major story that changed just about everyone's life, mainly in USA.

If the story was in the newspaper or magazine I would NOT of posted on F1

I did not know I would up set the "F1 Police".

E.ric don't let the negative comments on your plane thread upset you. Apart from Elwin, the "F1 Police" are generally annoyed at people hijacking someone's post with their banter instead of solving the person's problem.

That is fair enough, they have a valid gripe in that situation.

Stopping all the general discussion and banter from the forum is going a bit too far though and even Bruce and Robo agree on that.

I'm sure we can find a happy medium to suit everybody if we keep the off-topics limited, within reason, and contained in their own threads so that the purists aren't forced to "wade through it all" to get to the "real stuff", ie the computer problems.

Your thread was definitely in the "choose to read it or not" category and it amuses me that the purists couldn't resist having a look even though it was obviously not labelled as a computer problem.

They must be human after all. :D
