    No DVD Video?

    Hi guys,
    I recently helped my mate build his own computer. When we put it all together is seemed to work perfectly, Windows XP install went smoothly and so did everything else. He has upgraded to the latest version of Windows Media Player and bought the MP3 & DVD X-Pak add in for WMP. His problem came when he tried to play a DVD on his computer. When he puts the DVD in the drive WMP asks him does he want to play it, he clicks yes, and WMP starts playing it, he gets the audio but no video. Anyone got any ideas on whats wrong? The DVD drive is a SONY but i don't know which model, will post it later if i find out.

    Cheers

    First, try installing the latest DirectX runtimes to eliminate the possibility. DVD uses a video overlay and that appears to be the problem in this case. You should also eliminate any other programs that may be making use of the graphics card, if there are any. If that doesn't work, of course....post back and let us know.

    Try WinDVD, I know it is "common" but it has not failed me yet.
