    I assume the tablet pc does not have an internal dvd drive?

    You'll need to have a usb dvd drive .

    If you can convert the dvd to a .mov format or mp4 it'll play ok from a file.

    You do push the limits.

    I assume this is you off to Turkey.....:RollEyes:

    Gimme the Lightning.I'll look after it for you.:Cool:

    You will need to have some sort of DVD reader software such as Power DVD or Nero.
