I just want to see what a DVD movie looks like on my new system I just built (20" Widescreen, 8800GTX card, etc.). Had a heck of a time getting XP pro to recognize and install my OEM Samsung DVD writer SH-S182D, but it works now.
Put 'Lord of the Rings' in and something called 'Interactual 2.0' pops up and wants to be installed. Installed it, clicked on the D drive and the top meun show started, then as soon as I clicked 'Play movie' it shut down with that blasted 'error report to microsoft.'
After serveral attempts at updating Interactual, and with the same result, I uninstalled it and installed 'Zoom.' It won't play the DVD, it just opens and says waiting for media, even though I checked all the options for playing DVD. Every time I click on the D drive, Interactual pops up wanting be installed.
I don't want to copy, edit, or even watch the whole movie. I just want to see what it looks like on my new monitor. Even my obsolete Dell laptop can play DVD movies, and without this Interactual crap popping up, so why can't I get this to work?
I'm all ears for suggestions.
