360 HD-DVD works w/PC

For the price of $200 and some custom configuration, PC owners may be able to buy an inexpensive HD-DVD drive, writes UNEASYsilence. Microsoft's HD-DVD add-on for the Xbox 360 can apparently be installed to a PC with little effort. After connecting the player to a Windows XP machine via USB, users need only download these drivers to make it work in programs like WinDVD. Mac computers can detect the hardware, meanwhile, but can't play movies due to a lack of software support. Native HD-DVD drives for computers often cost several hundred dollars more than Microsoft's player.
