    I was testing a solution for play blu-rays from hdd with a script or a .bat file
    Is quite simple


    start powerdvd.exe
    reg add HKCU\SOFTWARE\Cyberlink\PowerDVD /v DVD_HDPath /d "Y:\SIMPSONS_MOVIE_F1" /f

    choice /n /c 1234567890qwertyuiopasdfghjklzxcvbnm /t 1 /d 0 >nul

    reg add HKCU\SOFTWARE\Cyberlink\PowerDVD /v UIFocusCDDrive /t REG_DWORD /d 1001 /f
    reg add HKCU\SOFTWARE\Cyberlink\PowerDVD /v UIModeflag /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f

    with this I launch powerdvd,
    write the folder with the movie in the registry
    then wait 1 second (maybe in some cases need to wait /t 2 or 3 seconds)
    because powerdvd at open focus on CD-ROM unit need to change to HDD folder:
    the last 2 registry commands

    then just need to press enter and the movie starts

    Y think that via windows script I can add the 'press enter' command
    And also can add the 'movie folder name' as a parameter

    I test this batch with several blu-ray & HD DVD movies and run perfect

    Maybe is possible to compile a small program that do this tasks and run instead powerdvd.

    Does this work with the newest version 3516?
