Hello, i have some strange problem.
I recently upgraded my PC(MB+CPU + new burner LiteOn SOHW1653S fw CS0C[originaly TEAC W516GA]), and i really can't remember if this problem first occur after upgrade (so it is HW problem[MB+CPU], or burner problem) or more possibly software problem. The promlem is when i try t play any DVD from burner with PowerDVD 6.0, it starts to read disc, then it display black screen (sometime it plays few secs of start[0-10s], but mostly it does not play anything), and then the drive stops reading (LED goes off and the drive stops - i assube by sound). The powerDVD is in "not responding" state, and cannot be even killed as process from taskmanager, only solution is to press eject on drive, interesting is just when the drive opens powerdvd plays few seconds more before it says no disc. This problem occurs on any DVDs (it doesnt matter if it is pressed or burned). But the funny thing is the drive can read all discs with no problems at all (decrypt/copy ect..), and even the i can play all DVDs through Windows media player correctly. If someone has this problem or thinks where coud be any problem, please write.
p.s. after change of MB i of course did clean XP installation, but now im just too lazy to reinstall only for this problem, even when im not 100% sure if it will help.
p.s.2 just for test i tried to play dvds through powerDVD on my obsolete DVD-ROM, and for suprise they all work, funny
p.s.3 i also tried t uninstall powerdvd6 and tried to install powerdvd 5, but with no improovement
p.s.4 im going today to test playback of DVDs with winDVD on burner, i wil lreport later
The main Question ?? can be problem in liteon burner ??
