I just installed an internal LG drive, model GSA-H55L. And the software, CyberLink PowerDVD (V7) & PowerProducer (3), and Nero 7 Essentials. I bought the version with software because I had no DVD software. PC is a Dell P4, 2.66GHz, Windows XP, SP2.
First problem is that I cannot play a DVD using PowerDVD. A DVD-R plays a few frames (video & audio), stumbles, plays a few more, stumbles, etc. The DVD-R I recorder with a stand alone recorder. I also tried a commercial DVD which just locks up after a few frames.
I also tried to transfer the DVD-R to my hard drive using PowerProducer so that I could try editing out commercials. But I canâ€™t seem to get PowerProducer to work. I click on Import, an Open window comes up & I then choose the DVD drive. VIDEO_TS then displays in a box. But I canâ€™t seen to get beyond that. I cannot Open it, cannot enter it as the file name. Nothing.
I can play audio CDs. I also did search this forum & it seems like PowerDVD works for just about everyone. So there must be something simple I am missing.
Any & all help, comments & suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
