Just picked this all up. I have also purchased a HP M9705 and have had the same problem,,,,HP support a total waist of time. My HD disk did not play. I also have a HDMI cable....on reading the advice above I switched this to my VGA cable and for the first time the disk played (rather than showing the disk on the drive).....now that it plays I have to try and work out why the cable does not allow the same to be viewed...after spending hours on this I feel I may be getting there. Is it not a shame that HP cannot be more supportive...if anybody has cracked this let me know

I had this problem. Turned out that I was using a DVI cable to connect my monitor to the video card, but my monitor was not HDCP compliant. Most HD-DVD's require the monitor to be HDCP compliant for digital output (i.e. over DVI or HDMI connections). Alternately, you can connect to your monitor via its analog (VGA) input instead, but you won't get HD output. I was able to do this using a VGA cable along with the VGA-DVI adapter for the video card output.
Cyberlink has a tool you can run to see if your system is capable of HD-DVD output. http://www.cyberlink.com/multi/support/bdhd_support/diagnosis.jsp
When I ran it, it gave me a red flag telling me my monitor was not HDCP compliant
