    sorry if you already knew this, but if you have the dvd playback kit already, it should play a copy of a dvd without any modifications.
    oh, and are you talking about a dvd backup, or a divx backup? If you want the original dvd (menus and features and all that crap) to be stored on your hdd so you can watch it from the hdd as if it were a regular dvd, I don't believe there's anything available yet. I'd like to find one if there is.

    you also have to make sure that your evox.ini (If you use evox) has the correct path set to the dvd player of your choice
    Use dvdxr (dongle free) for the ability to play movies with your pad

    the easiest way is to get littlejonnys auto installer, and install the apps, it has xbmc on it
