DVD playback problems

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
i'm in a bind, i don't really know where else to look so hoping for some insight since i wasn't able to find anything.

my default DVD player has always been PowerDVD 5. i've had the same serial number that i've been using for the past few years. when i built a new system everything looked like it works, but when i try to play a DVD, my Powerdvd just disapears after i hit play. no BSOD, no crash messages. so i tried WMP 10, and it crashes after displaying after a few seconds. i can play media files just fine, but my any DVDs would result in me not being able to play them. my only recourse is to use Windows Media Player Classic. i don't mind using that, but this problem is bugging me when it used to work in my old system. the only codecs that i've installed other then what came from PowerDVD are the CCCP found here. i'm using two NEC 3550A DVD drives.

i hope someone can help, thanks in advance.

same problem here exactly - anyone know? (as the thread is resurrected).

After crashing Windows Media player -it says it's either copy protection or drivers...

I'm using HD3200 onboard on my HTPC and a Sony DVD player. Using the VGA cable with audio output -works for everything but DVD.

So here's my guess, it wants me to use the onboard HDMI instead. I've definitely used VGA for DVD's before on this very machine in XP x64.....so it can't be drivers.

Only difference I'm seeing might be that I wasn't using the onboard - but was using DVI to VGA in that scenario....

Any suggestions?

It's probably a DirectShow filter issue (most people call them codecs, but it's not limited to that). Install CCCP, tick reset all settings during install.
