I too was frustrated by that, but did get it to work. I think I selected the top choice from the DVD iDrive menu from the vertical list of icons on the left. If I recall, it's just labeled "DVD". Some obscure information message is displayed trying to tell you that now the iDrive controller can be used to select the menu items within the DVD movie. I would have thought that turning the iDrive controller would have moved the cursor from PLAY to SELECT SCENE or SETUP etc. While I could not seem to get the cursor to move, I was able to select "PLAY" and the movie started.

I know this isn't the cleanest of answers, but it's only been a few minutes since your posting. If you're still in the car, this is at least a pointer on where to focus. Good luck!
