    Ive just installed a Sapphire Radeon 9500pro and the bundle came with PowerDVD XP4.0.

    It installs OK, the diagnostic runs seemingly OK, but the bl**dy thing just wont play DVD's.

    For some reason it'll let you know the disk title in the menu help popups, but hit the play button and....

    Not a sausage!:rolleyes:

    Windows Media player works fine with DVDs/any disc I care to place in the drive, but powerdvd just sits there and does nothing:suicide:

    Anyone else had this problem??

    There's a MODE button somewhere on the Power DVD skin.

    When it's in FILE mode, nothing happens. When it's in DVD mode- press PLAY and the DVD plays.

    Had me stumped for a while, pressed every button and sussed it out.

    Looked for a mode button but cant seem to find it. But I think the software isnt recognising my system. Everything else works fine, any more ideas?

    Thanks Nathan, I tried to download the skin you suggested, but the zip file was corrupt, I'll try again later.

    So I'll try the official site for some more skins

    I still cant find any help files with regard to this problem though...

    Nathan,

    I tried the mode button on the skin you reccommended, no joy the program still just sits there like a dumb ****.

    I can see that the disk has been recognised (ie the name of the disk appears on the player and the configuration menu) but absolutley nothing else happens.

    Any more ideas


    ....Anyone,
