Bodgy DVD playback with LTD-165H


I recently aquired a LiteOn LTD-165H DVD-ROM and installed it. It came bundled with PowerDVD XP 4.0 . The problem I have that is every DVD I own come out as a bunch of pixelated crap when I try to play it with PowerDVD or MaXimus DVD 1.2. The sound is also garbled.

Refer to this screenshot:

I have no idea how to fix this, and i was hoping i would be able to without having to flash a new firmware. The only help the PowerDVD site could give was to make sure DMA is switched on, which it is.

Any help would be great.

I don’t know a whole lot about this problem, but you might try to re-install directx.

It’s not a firmware problem. Try re-instaling PowerDVD and drivers for your graphics card as well.
