Until recently I was able to play DVDs on my PC. Then I upgraded my hardware. I installed an AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core processor 4600+ on an Asus A8N32-SLI Deluxe motherboard and added a Sapphire Radeon X850 XT. Of course that meant that I had to reinstall Windows. Surprisingly it all installed great, except now I can't play DVDs. Whether I use Windows Media Player or PowerDVD I get the same response. The program hangs for a while then crashes to desktop. I've tried updating drivers but that didn't work.
I have Windows XP SP2 btw, and everything else seems to work OK. I can even play avi, mpeg and wmv files, but not DVDs.
My DVD rewriters are an LG GSA-4167 and an LG GSA-4163 and I get no joy - DVD wise - from either.
