I’m kind’a new at all this, but I’m going insane with frustration.
I’ll start with what I have . . .
Compaq Presario - AMD Athlon XP 2000+
1.67Ghz and 512MB Ram, CD burner, Internal 40GigHD & External WD 250GigHD (both hardrives have plenty of room).
I recently bought and installed an internal SONY DVD-RW Model DVR-830-A.
This DVD burner came with some version of Nero 7.
Initially everything worked great. I could play any DVD I threw at it, both copywrited movies and newly burned personal DVD’s (no infringement DVD’s ever made or played). Both WMP (ver 11) and Nero 7 worked great.
Then when my freebee Nero 7 was about to run out, I opted to spend almost $70.00CDN on Nero 18.104.22.168. Did the download and install, and now I can’t play a darn thing! :a
When I try to play a DVD with either my WMP or the new Nero (it plays with it’s SHowTime3) I get the message;
“Nero ShowTime has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience.”. With a send error report under that.
Tried . . .
- reinstall , no help
- remove the old Nero (even used Nero’s clean sweep or whatever it’s called), then do reinstall - no help
- tried some codec things like loading K-Lite Codec Pack, no help (but WMP at least now plays the sound, but still no picture).
- tried redownloading Nero 22.214.171.124 2 more times (incase of correpted download) - no help
I can see that it knows there’s a DVD there, but I went through all the same DVD’s that played before and none of them work anymore.
