Asus DVD Rom

  Daveym 15:40 09 Nov 2003

I have an Asus DVD rom and for some reason it wont play DVD movies. I am using XP Pro and when I insert a movie and choose either Media player, Real player or Asus DVD software it says that the program has encountered a problem and needs to close. I have tried to update the DVD firmware but when I run the update it says hardware cannot be found. The DVD in device manager is ok and it plays CD's and DVD data disc's ok. Any ideas please.

That sounds more as if it is a software problem - have you tried reinstalling the software for playing DVDs. As an alternative, try MaximusDVD from click here

Ir0nman - maximus has gone; if you want a dvd viewer mail me or do a google search.
