    This whole E.T. thing just keeps getting more and more sour for me. I am one of the fortunate people to have a decent broadband connection on my computer, so I decided to keep an open mind about the Total Axess stuff, so I stuck in the second disc hoping to see some deleted scenes or something neat.

    Now first, of all, I have NEVER watched a DVD-movie on my computer and have never messed with any DVD-ROM supplements. So the Install Wizard for the Interactual player (whatever this is) came up, and I installed it. Then the movie started playing. I clicked on the Main Menu button and got the same menus as if I had stuck it in my main DVD player, nothing new.

    So, I saw the Total Axess logo in the bottom left corner and clicked on it, then about 4 new windows just popped up on my screen. One of them with this following text:

    Total Axess uses InterActual Player?

    I'm out of luck then. InterActual has NEVER EVER worked on this computer.

    Anyone else? Has anyone tried to access the DVD-ROM only supplements on this disc? Is this a typical problem with discs that use the Interactual Player?

    I didn't realize anyone except college students actually owned computer dvd drives. I have no use for one. I wouldn't use it to watch my 19" monitor in preference to my 65" Mits. Seriously, I can't think of another use for one. I'm curious.

    I was able to get Total Axess to work after several tries and registering. At this point only several photos and 2-4 clips from the premiere are on the site from what I can gather. Nothing terribly interesting but I'm hoping 'deleted scenes' and other more useful extras will be forthcoming over the next few weeks. [​IMG]

    If it uses Interactual, I think I'll pass on even trying to check it out. Interactual is one of the biggest pieces of garbage I've ever installed on my PC. I can get to menus with it, but it won't actually play the DVD's. It also locks up after running it for more than 10 minutes, and requires a hard reboot.
