    Hi all, this is my first post so go easy on me if this has all been explained before.
    I should first say that I tried looking for a guide of some sort and came out empty...So if one exists please direct me towards it.
    I recently bought a 42" LCD which ofcourse is HD ready. It's connected via a DVI to HDMI cabel to my PC:
    X1900XT 512MB with latest drivers
    X2 4400+ CPU
    2GB OCZ platinum kit
    Asus A8N SLI Premium

    I got a 25GB iso for The Matrix (the first one) which I mounted with daemon tools, but from here on my PC is clueless. It registers the drive just fine with the name and folders inside (2 of them) but I have no idea how to play this.
    I tryed VLC (the latest from this website) but after a quick read in this forum I realized there was more to it...

    Any help at this would be MUCH appreciated cause I got a sample from a 15GB Transformers rip and it looks SPECTACULAR! which of course makes me itch for HD like a crazy man :)

    I didn't create this ISO, I "got" it. Rather a friend did. It's marked The.Matrix.1999.UNTOUCHED.DL.HDDVD-Details.

    A small update. I tried PowerDVD ultra (7.3304) and it works like a charm :)
    It sees the iso as a HD-DVD and plays it flawlessly. The quality is worse then Transformers but I imagine that's because the movie was not filmed in HD format and is converted (is this true?) to HD in some way.

    I was also scared that my CPU won't be up for the job but it never exceeded 40%.
