It may not work with HD, I don't know, but if so, it's easy peasy; whilst playing, simply press...
...simultaneously at the moment you want to make the grab. It saves the images in some obscure folder on your PC so you may have to hunt for them (on my PC, for example, it saves them in 'Documents and Setting', 'My Pictures' or something). I always convert them to jpegs afterwards.
Although not 2001-related, here is a screengrab I made from the 'Star Cops' DVD, so you can see what it does:
Don't have any problem capturing from standard DVD it's just HD that's still very new and a pain.
Ah yes, what I hadn't realized when I posted was that your PC's DVD drive may not be configured to play HD! Hardware rather than software may be the sticking point here. I suspect that if your hardware will play an HD disc, then something like VLC should cope no problem.

Thanks Lee. I got your Discovery photos as well. Is there supposed to be a Discovery_01_Photo_Scan photo? I only found photos 2 to 9.
You'll need a HD-DVD PC drive and HD-DVD player software in order to capture any stills. Wikipedia lists a bunch of HD-DVD drives. Although expensive, the LG GGW-H10N supports both HD-DVD (Read) and Blu-Ray (Read and Write).

Hey Steve, there's no photo 1, well there is but it was basically a flipped version of one of the other pics. I didn't notice until after I'd scanned them, I kept the best one.
As for the US Bomb, those 5 holes on the front and back of the coning tower are known as RCSs. Reaction Control Systems and are used as maneuvering thrusters. Exactly that same as what's on the sides on the one man pod.
On a side note, for those interested int he Roger Young from Starship Troopers, I just posted 50 pictures of the 18ft bigature on my flickr site. I have about 100 more to upload.
I know the RCS looks exactly like an RCS, but with antennae on top of and directly under the aft exhauset port just don't make sense. Then, what are the side panels? Energy generation/storage? Why not use the likely fussion (hopefully) reactor that is powering the main motors?
The panels scream out to me that they are sensor modules of some form, if not solar collectors. The barn door boxes on top of that would be comm/control gear linked by the upper tunnel.
And if they aren't RCS, then what are the things up front? Looks like a visual sensor group for spying on earth, targeting lasers, guidance and so on. To me.
What about the side circles on the proposed command module. Large caliber defense guns.
Lots to consider. And these all look like beam weapons to me. Though I know they are single 1000mt bombs.
I'd rather be working with something from Heuristic Labs than Intel! At least then the computer could tell what's wrong instead of me having to guess! Just gotta watch out for the murder-rampage factor!
I've used the word 'wing' several times when jotting down my notes so far and it does leave a bad taste behind. 'Panel' is not adequate either considering the paneling all over the body... 'Proturbances' is a bit awkward... 'Flappity-flaps'? Hmmm...
In many early classes of submarines (see history), the Control Room, or "Conn", was located inside this tower, which was known as the "conning tower". Since that time, however, the Conn has been located within the hull of the submarine, and the tower is more commonly called the "sail" today. The Conn should not be confused with the "bridge", which is a small, open platform set into the top of the sail used for visual observation while operating on the surface.
The flappity-flaps on a Sub's Sail are called the 'foreplanes' which are control surfaces for maneuverability.

This of course is all good, IF they are manned Personally I see nothing on the bombs/platforms to show that they are manned. Of course not having any real scale doesn't help this. Scale on spaceships is normally tided to the visable windows and the distance between decks (normall 10ft/3m as are .normal buildings). There's no windows that I can see and also no other signs of human activity, Hatches, Docking Ports etc...
