As the originator of this thread I thought I would post an update. I called Toshiba yesterday and was told my hd-dvds were "in the mail" as of July 10th....these shipping from a slow boat from Asia? Anyways, was happy to hear the order was approved, processed and sent. I picked Casablanca; the Perfect Storm (ugh - wish a read reviews b4 picking this one); U-571; Tombraider (the kid's choice) and I honestly don't remember what else, its been so long. Wished i picked Seabisket, but I know I did not.
