AMD Radeon Adrenalin release date, new features, compatible graphics cards
In trouble again.
I recently fitted a BTC Model 10041M DVD R/RW drive. When I put a DVD Film in it yesterday the message appeared asking what programme I wanted to use to read it. I selected REAL Player, and promptly got the message that a update was required which I downloaded. It then said that I needed to load the software that came with the drive or one of 4 alternative programmes I could download. One of them being Cyberlink Power DVD, which, as it happened, was supplied. Power DVD was installed when the drive was fitted but I removed it as everytime I clicked on 'configure' the computer crashed, anyhow I followed REAL's instructions and re-installed Power DVD, put the DVD in the drive, clicked on play and promptly got a lovely blue screen. After trying again, and getting another blue screen I removed Power DVD and installed a trial version of Any DVD. At least the computer didn't crash, I just got the message that the DVD had failed to register. I should add that I tried both programmes with, first time, the same DVD then another DVD the second time, both play perfectly on a normal DVD player. I have noticed that though the DVD drive is recognised in BIOS and the system in general, there are a couple of programmes, Nero and a BackUp programme, that still seem to think it is a CD R/RW. Any ideas would, as always, be very much appreciated.
I am using Windows XP Home, with SP1. The motherboard is an ASUS A7V8X-MX with a AMD Athlon XP2200+. The hard drive is only 40GB but has more than 30GB free.
