I am Roky. I am recently having some problem with my dvd playback on my computer. Some of my dvds that used to play fine are not playing now. My configuration is as follows -
1. dvd drive - asus e616a2
2. operating system - windows xp
3. dvd player - power dvd, windows media player
Before solving a problem, the most important thing is to find out the cause of the problem, which I could not do yet.
1.Say, the problem is with my software. But recently I bought a new hard drive, freshly installed xp, and power dvd. and above all, other dvds would play just fine.
2. Say, the problem is with my hardware, i.e, the dvd drive. But then again, why the other dvds play? Also the same dvds would play on the same system only some days before.
3.Is it a virus? I thoroughly scanned the whole system with the latest version of norton antivirus. The system is clean.
4. The dvds that won't play on my system would play on some one else's machine just fine. So, the dvds themselves are error free.
When I try to play these dvds, the powerdvd screen shows 'load', gets a little bigger, and then gets the previous size, and shows 'stop'. In windows media player, it says 'playlist', and then 'playing menu' alternately in a loop.
If I try to play a single file, the progress bar on power dvd goes on, the time shows on, the screen remains black.
Can someone help?
I will remain ever greatful.
