Can' view DVD's

  MOTIVE37 11:29 04 May 2004

I have an NEC ND1300A DVD Dual format writer, I have installed Roxio Easy CD&DVD Creator 6 Platinum, and I would like to be able to view dvd's on my PC. When I try, using Roxio player, I get a message saying "Subpicture is not available, would you like to continue?" When I say yes and click the play button, nothing happens (just blank screen).

Specs are - Athlon XP 2500, 512MB DDR RAM, Nvida 5200 FX 128MB DDR VGA card, with 80GB HDD.

I am new to PC DVD'ng, and I have the feeling I should have another type of viewer/decoder installed, can anyone help?

You need PowerDVD or similar (latest version is 5.0):

Thanks for the inspiration Stu, ended up installing Cliprex DS DVD Player powered by directx v 9.0b (all freeware). All singing and dancing now.
