I've got to be missing something whoppingly simple. I have the DVD for "Contamination" from Blue Underground, and a graphic novel of the film made 10 years after its release can be read by accessing the DVD-ROM drive by, according to the instructions, simply inserting the DVD. But the DVD is already accessed on my laptop, because I watch all DVDs on my laptop. So there's nothing I can do but stare at the instructions on the special-features page telling me to insert something that is already frigging there.

Help, please, and I'll owe you a blowjob -- well, you know, when Hell freezes over, that is.

Is there anyway to close out whatever program you are watching the DVD with? Normally, ROM instructions tell me where to click once I put the thing in my computer, which usually involves opening a new file (wow, I almost sound like I know what I am talking about!).

Go to the disc via "My Computer," then right-click the disc to explore it without playing it. You should find some files that way.

David, I think you won Jack's "reward."
