DVD audio and video problem
Here's a strange problem, can anyone help with this?
I have a Dell Dimension XPS T550 with the following:
- 32 Mb Diamond Viper 770D video card
- Cinemaster hardware decoder card
- 256 Mb SDRam
- Pentium III 550 Mhz
- 20 & 40Gb Hard drives
- DVD drive
- CDRW drive
- 56K modem
- IEEE 1394 Firewire card
- Soundblaster Live Value 512
The machine originally came installed with Windows98 SE. After 5 yrs
I decided it was time to upgrade the operating system. I performed a
fresh installation of Windows 2000 Professional. After i installed
the OS the win2K dvd player haung the machine everytime i tried to
play a dvd. I installed the PC friendly dvd play (it came with the
matrix dvd). I was still unable to play dvds. I updated the drivers
for the video card and the decoder card. This resulted in a new
problem, the windows dvd still didnt work, the ravisent dvd player
played the digital sound but no video and powerdvd played the video
but no digital sound. Someone recommended going to XP since that
should have the most updated drivers. I did a fresh install of XP.
And the same thing has happened.....windows media player will hang
if i try to play a dvd. The ravisent player is playing the sound
properly, but on the window i'm getting "current display mode not
suitable for dvd video" and the powerdvd player plays the video but
no digital sound.
I'm trying to get either of the players to output both video and
digital sound (preferably the ravisent player). Now the decoder card
has a video output also...I connected this to the television an I am
getting the video there...but i want it on my pc monitor :D
Can anyone assist me with this?
Re: DVD audio and video problem
If I had the problem, I would consider a new combo DVD CD drive.
Sometimes drives just don't play well together.
Besides, you might even be able to get something that can burn DVDs.
This planned obsolesence thing with computers and Windows in
What can you do?
