Okay people, I found all of the extras, so it's time to update them for you.
First, go to the song select. There is a star that will be highlighted, before "Boys Don't Cry." This star does absolutely nothing that I have found.
There is a hidden star after "Just Say Yes" that shows the "Greatest Hits" album cover.
Now for the real extras...
"The Caterpillar"
Highlight "The Walk" and press down, right, right.
"Close To Me (Closer Mix)"
Highlight "Close To Me" and press up, up, up.
"Pictures Of You"
Highlight "Friday I'm In Love" and press down, down, down.
All 18 videos are under Title 1, Chapters, 1-18.
All 6 acoustic videos are under Title 2, Chapters 1-6.
The Cover of the Greatest Hits album is under Title 3, Chapter 1.
There are three bonus videos:
"The Caterpillar" is under Title 4, Chapter 1.
"Pictures of You" is under Title 5, Chapter 1.
"Close to Me (Closer Mix)" is under Title 6, Chapter 1.
All of the videos, including the live and hidden videos are available in both 5.1 and stereo mixes. Now if only they would release the rest of them on DVD...

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I've always liked listening to The Cure, having grown up with their music. However I realized after seeing this for sale that I had never actually seen any of their music videos (save High and maybe Lovecats randomly on late night MTV). My opinion of the band has grown to a new level since purchasing this DVD. I have to start out by saying that everything on this DVD maintains the creative and emotion-evoking qualities I have grown to love from this band. Even the menu is cool how its over-saturated, moody dark blue tones are backdrop to a single, slowly spinning star. The experience is hard to define as anything but very Cure-ish. It's also fun to watch the videos chronologically as the band develops its artistic style. Seeing A Forest for the first time I couldn't believe how buttoned down and conservative they looked! The sound is also awesome. Listening to the songs in Dolby 5.1 really allows you to hear how layered and complex they really are (the songs not the band). Anyway, I would definitely recommend this DVD to anyone who is at all interested in The Cure. The video quality is superb (especially the acoustic songs) and hearing the songs in 5.1 makes it that much better. I'm totally glad I bought this disc and will enjoy watching it for years to come.

hi,i am a 13 year old boy,who's favorite band is The Cure,and no i'm not depressed,so in other words i missed the prime of my favorites band.Over my summer breaks and winter breaks i wathc video's all the time,but never see a cure video hardly at all (as a matter of fact i have seen one cure video,and it was "friday i'm in love")Anyway,this video changed all this for me,i now can see the video's to pretty much all my favorite cure songs on this video,except for "jump someone elses train"&"drip"(which both should have been included)well anyway as i said i am a 13 year old kid who's favorite band is the cure,and this video has made me even more of a fan.

I am not a HUGE Cure fan, but I like them enough to want to own this dvd. I was impressed when I put it in my player. While the packaging doesn't mention that a 5.1 mix is included, it is. I have bought a few music dvd's that just say "Dolby Digital" that only contain a 2-channel mix. (The Eurythmics dvd even had a sticker that said there was a 5.1 mix but the disc contained only a stereo track!)
The video quality is good, the surround mix is well done (and a 2-channel version is also included).
I really like the acoustic versions. The accompanying video doesn't look that strange to me...no more strange than the Cure usually looks. (That's a good thing!)
What puts this at a 5-star level for me is that it has a generous number of tracks (not even including the hidden "easter egg" tracks) and a good price.

Format: DVD
This collection came out to reflect the greatest hits release so I understand that it isnt supose to be a complete video collection. The missing videos besides the hidden one's are some of their greatest videos like charolette sometimes, primary, the hanging garden, the 13th, fascination street, 10:15 on a staurday night, jumping some one elses train, killing an arab. These are all great videos and hopefully some day they will see dvd release. the quality seemed really bad on the transefer to dvd especially on just like heaven where it doesn't seem like they were remastered at all. If only this could of had the same care as on the trilogy dvd. I will still give this 5 stars becuse its the cure and is still enjoyable and thank god it has love cats and the catepillar. I still love it but it leaves much to be desired. Its sad to see the aging of robert smith but it revives the wonderfulness of what the 80's had music wise. If only more kids support cure-like pop. and yes the acoustic set is cool
