How does PowerDVD remember what it has played?



Does anyone know where PowerDVD records the position it stopped at the last time it played a DVD?

I'm trying to see if there is a 'played list' file somewhere on the hard drive that I need to save before doing a windows reinstall.


Since noone responded to my query and there have been quite a few views of this post, I've looked into this a bit further.

The closest I got was on a Cyberlink forum Deleting DVD resume saves in PowerDVD 9 , where it says, "PowerDVD 8 and lower use to have a folder in the registry for the resume status of each disc, however in PowerDVD 9 its no longer there."

I started up regedit.exe (I have Windows XP Home, Sp3) and found a list of folders for each of the DVDs I've played on this current Windows installation at the following type of address:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\CyberLink\PowerDVD\DVD_ResumeState\ 241A640E62CE6E9
Each folder holds two keys, 'DiscState' and 'Resume', all of which held null values, even though I have used the Auto-resume feature on some of these DVDs.

So the Auto-resume function can't be used as the basis for a Played List facility, unfortunately. I suppose it would be possible to trace the DVD from the hexadecimal UID in the registry address, but I was hoping for a list of played files, not just played discs.
