click here is this the same PC if so the problems probably related as both are involving the DVD recorder.

In the first instance assumming you are on XP try system restore to a time it was woking, if that fails then delete and reinstall WinDVD and see what that does, reinstalling should do it as it'll set all the controls back to what they were initially.

I'm not sure if Nero actually plays dvds as I always use PowerDVD which is similar to your WinDVD.

ok thanks i,ll try it. i was given a display laptop and had to re install windows but cannot get rid of some of the shops stuff off it maybe they took off windvd?

Perhaps they did. But if they did and its left an icon to it on the desktop and you click on it then it will say something like program not found. I would see if you have the WinDVD disk before deleting it.
