My good deed for the day:
Found this elsewhere, apparently, it's a new system pull, and pretty cheap at that. $6 shipping for UPS Ground, $9 for 2nd Day Air...AND REGION FREE! (with upgraded firmware, I believe)... I ordered myself one...

"DVD Decoding Hardware or Software is needed to Watch DVD Movies!"

Yes, decoding isn't done by the drive, so you either get software that does it, which eats your CPU, or you get a dedicated card to do this for you. Some video cards actually have this built in, depends ont he card. This is nothing new, or unusual.

Exactly, there's no such thing as a DVD-ROM drive that doesn't require either/or, duh.
