    I am not very sure what the word 'install' actually means- say there is a movie on the Digit DVD said to be 800MB sized, and I want to see it- there is only one option 'install'- does the whole thing first gets installed on my Hard Disk or can it/ does it run directly from the DVD when I select (click)' install'? Anyone who may clarify this point is requested to do so and oblige. Thanks in advance.

    It will just open the folder where the movie file is located.

    It opens the movie folder, from where you are required to make the copy.

    Thanks, but my question still is: will the movie run from the DVD direct without it first loading onto the hard disk drive? I want to see the movie but am not interested in loading or copying or saving it first in any folder or disk drive

    the movie will run directly off the DVD. Hope Digit changes "Install" to "View" for the trailers and movies

    Yes it will run directly from the disc. You don't have to save it in hard disk for viewing.

    ^ You have to tell the moderators to close it. And if it is not closed, it won't do any harm. :)

    Don't worry disc, even though he has requested a mod to close this thread. I think it will take more than 2 days to get a thread closed. Our Mods are sooooo active in this forum.
