    Default Is there a way to find out what is really on a DVD?

    I have a box set of the first 21 James Bond films, and since last summer I've been working my way through the special features on each DVD, and then watching the movie again. The first 19 DVDs, on the second disk, there are 5 sections - the first usually having short features, the second showing clips of the movie illustrating the various characters, the third having documentaries, the fourth having theatrical, tv (and for the early films, radio) trailers and previews) and the fifth being a photo gallery. However, when I got to "Die Another Day", there are only 3 sections showing on the menu (the first, second and fifth), though stuff that would be in the missing sections is listed on the jacket. Is it possible that the features are on the DVD and the menu is just screwed up, and if so, is there a way that I can find them.

    I'm not holding out much help as the jacket also mentions additional DVD-ROM content, and I think that would pop up when I put the DVD in my laptop, regardless of whether or not it's on the menu, and it doesn't.

    that allowed me to go chapter by chapter - so many of them defaulted back to the main menu, a couple of them did nothing, but the rest were the components that I could see by conventional means on my DVD player. Nothing unseen, guess it's a production glitch, but from reading around, it's a common one on the "Ultimate Edition".

    Thanks, Goo, and thanks for the suggestions, everyone

    I use Power DVD and there's an option using the right click mouse button to view the dvd's contents using Windows Explorer which allows you to see everything on the disc in a typical Windows folder directory. The biggest one(s) are obviously the movie itself and usually when it comes to extra or bonus content on a dvd, it's broken down into sub-directories or groupings of folders in folders. You just select any ol' folder and hit play and you can play whatever the video may be including so-called easter Egg "hideen" material.

    T.B.
