The reason it will not work is NT will not allow any user level application
to directly control the hardware, which the DVD player wants to do. NT does
this to protect user apps from crashing the entire system.(it only works
sometimes). That is also why most video games will not work under NT.

Sorry to ask a question about windoz, but a friend has asked me, is there a
player for NT on the thinkpad 600s? SoftMeg seems to be just for 95/98
