Anyone have an idea why my Desktop PC (WinXP) will not play a legal DVD movie but Laptop (Vista) will. The PC system use a SATA TSSTcorp Samsung DVD drive and has had a firmware flash. If memory serves, the desktop used to play movies OK, all I've done to it is re-format and re-install the OS and latest drivers.
Cheers Raven. I already have VLC. The problem seems to be that the DVD drive can't read the movie. I thought it might be some sort of 'protection' on the DVD - latest Indie Jones - but then it wouldn't have played on either. I've just tried 'Titanic' and it plays ok
If the drive sees titanic then its gotta be the disc I have indie and it plays on my pc XP You could download imgburn its free and seeif that sees the disc it;ll tell you its copywrited but at least confirm its seen.Assuming of course you cant just explore the disc click here
Just a thought. If it is displaying anything like the intro and fiolm licence etc but freezes on the opening of the film try using the 'enter' key on your keyboard and not the mouse. I had similar problems on the Blu-ray 'Godfather Trilogy' and this sorted it.
