According to various sources on the internet the XBOX 360 HD-DVD add-on drive will work on a Windows XP equipped PC. All it requires are some drivers (still unofficial), a USB2 connection and a HD-DVD playback program like WinDVD 8. Others have tested it on recent builds of Windows Vista. Here the drive works without drivers. It even connects without drivers to a Apple computer with Mac OS X. However, no playback software is currently available on that platform.

This is a very interesting development. It will give million of PC owners a very cheap and easy way to expand their Home Theater PC with HD-DVD playback.

We hope to review this option soon, so stay tuned.
