    When playing the extras disc of BHD on my laptop's DVD drive my usual software won't recognise the disc (WinDVD) - nothing happens at all. If I load up Media Player though it plays without a problem. Not had this problem with any other discs (including those with DVD-ROM material on - very confused!!

    Anyone have any ideas??

    Kelvin :D

    WinDVD came pre installed on my computer so I'm not entirely sure where abouts I'd need to go to get it from again if I wanted to re-install it. I don't believe the version I have is available as freeware so I'd ideally like to avoid doing that if possible.

    It just seems weird that this is the only disc that exhibits a problem - could it be down to the way in which the disc is encoded perhaps??

    Any software that comes pre-installed should be backed up on cd. Did you not get any cds with your pc? :confused:

    All of the major software (Win XP, Office XP etc) were bought by myself in advance of the machine being built. A colleague of my father's then put the whole lot together for me!! I can only assume he installed some other software that he felt I may find useful, which I hadn't bought... maybe I shouldn't be saying that... :blush:

    Is there a freeware version of Win DVD available?

    Kelvin :D

    No of course not ;)

    I'm a PowerDVD man myself anyway. No free version of that available anywhere either ;)

    I'm sure that someone could track you down an evaluation copy of the latest version. This would you require you to buy a licenced version should you find it meets your requirements of course...
