DVD Rom Special Features?

I've got a really simple question, but I have no idea how to answer it.

We're using Netflix to catch up on some TV shows, and we just got Six Feet Under. THere are some DVD ROM features I wanna take a look at, but whenever I put it in the DVD ROM on the computer, it starts auto-play. I've tried high-lighting "DVD ROM Special Features" on the menu, but it just gives me the directions, which say to insert the disc into a Windows 95 or higher system.

We're running XP SP2.

I hope this is the right forum. Thanks again for all your help in the past.

Hold SHIFT when inserting it and it won't autoplay.

Then go to My Computer, right click the drive letter, and select "Open" to access it as a DVD-ROM.

I'm pretty sure you can also disable "autoplay" in Windows' Control Panel...
