Compatible DVD player for Xp or.............

  Seadog 19:42 01 Oct 2003

Can anyone recommend (cheap) DVD player software that is fully compatible with Win Xp.
Win DVD 2000 locks up and with Win DVD 5 (trial version) I get sound but no picture! - or am I doing something wrong? Maybe a software conflict.
Any advice is appreciated.

Oh go to start, run, type:

dvdupgrd /detect

Click ok.

It should tell you if a DVD decoder is installed.

Yep! DVD decoder is installed, tried to use InterActual player and that says I have an error with the audio subsystem.
How can I check what programs are running in the backgroung with Xp? I am new to Xp and the old "control/alt/delete" doesn't do the same as '98.

Do you use a radeon graphics card?

No, graphics is nvidia mx440... Sound is creative audigy platinum running with 512Mb 2700 ram on P4 2.4Ghz cpu......................

That blows my theory to bits. Something like this happens on the Radeon 7500.Not an issue here though.
