I had 2 dvd software applications installed , InterVideo winDVD and powerDVD 4 XP,because each can play specific kind of formatted DVD movies …the problem occurred when I installed Power DVD 3.0 which automatically removed powerdvd 4. Now I am unable to play a DVD movie on either softwares . I have a pioneer DVD rom 106 with microsoft driver running it . Note : I can run and install software from CD’s but I can’t play DVDs ...when I insert a DVD it shows the setup screen but I play the movie it gives the following message after several seconds : Error code : 89020003 The DVD disc might have been damaged so as to inhibit playback operation. In the detail section : Please clean the surface of the disc if possible. If it has been scratched, it might not be readable. Could it be a druver problem or hardware problem . Note that the dvd’s can be played elsewhere….so nothing is wrong with the disks..!!! NOTE THAT SOME OTHER CDs are having some problems loadig up !!!
Try uninstalling Power DVD 3 and reinstall 4XP. Why do you want to have version 3 when you have 4XP? Failing which uninstall both DVD softwares and start again. Hope this works. Its the only option I cvan think of at present short of a reformat and start from scratch. Hope this is not too depressing.
