Playing promo video on CD

  Skeletor 14:16 23 Feb 2003

My partner has just bought the new t.A.T.u CD. Which says on the case "Includes Video." But I just cant get it to play. I've tried both CD and DVD drives. I get as far as the transport buttons(play/stop/rewind etc) but no further. I Know this is probably a pretty basic query, but I'm new to the PC scene.
By the way I have Windows XP and Windows Media Player if thats of any help.
Many thanks

try downloading realplayer and see if it opens in that.

Sorry, Should have mentioned that I tried RealOne Player (I am assuming that RealPlayer and RealOne Player are the same thing) but
still no joy

Have you tried opening the file direct from your DVD player software? By passing the auto run.

Explore the disc and try to find a file in a folder that might be called MPEGAV. The file might be something like AVSEQ01 a dat file.

Is your DVD playing software capable of playing VCD?

Please ignore if already tried.

Thanks Brian, You're a genius.....and I'm an idiot. I explored the CD as you you suggested and found something called Quick Time, I nstalled it, and, hey presto! I Said I was new to the PC scene. Thanks again, Steve
