Well i went and bought myself a nice new NEC 4450 in black so it’d match my case, and it does, lovely it looks too. I put it into my computer and checked it worked, watched a DVD using powerDVD and then ripped and burnt a DVD using Shrink and Decrypter. Worked like a dream…
So of course i installed liggy and dee’s firmware on it, continued to work like a dream (except with bitsetting! :D)
However it’s stopped playing DVDs now, pressed or burnt it’s no difference, it comes up with an error saying “format not supported”.
The discs are fine when i use them in my other machine with a NEC 3540 or on a standalone DVD player. More confusing still is that i can still rip and burn DVDs without a problem in the world using shrink and i can watch the preview
I have installed a soundblaster 2 ex in the machine, but that’s the only change i made to it to get this, and i’d prefer not to have to take away my sound card
