    1) Use DVD Decypter to convert the dvd to an .iso file on the hard drive.
    dvddecrypter how to: http://www.doom9.org/dvddec.htm

    2) Make sure you have deamon tools set up on your htpc.
    Daemon Tools download: http://www.daemon-tools.cc/dtcc/daemonhelp.php
    Daemon Tools help: http://www.daemon-tools.cc/dtcc/daemonhelp.php

    3) Set up MP to use Daemon Tools...in the MP setup, General/Daemon Tools
    check "Automount .iso/.bin file using Daemon Tools
    use the Browse button to find and enter the location of the daemon tools executable
    make sure you set the virtual drive letter up the same as you did in your daemon tools program setup

    When you rip your dvd, make sure it's saved in a folder you've set up in the MP Setup program under Movies/Movie folders

    Click on the file name My Videos, the ripped DVD should play like a dvd was in a drive

    Ok, have a good vacation in Egypt :) Me might have to tell @high to turn off the automated flag for privacy reasons. Also everybody could see I was in netherlands. I think the flag should be related to the country entered and shown ;)

    Solved: In my case, it was indeed a codec issue. In LAV configuration, I had to select "DXVA (native)", then DVD playback including menus work fine. Sorry for having caused trouble, and thanks a lot for the support!
