dvd sound but no picture

  brigtoo 10:59 27 Feb 2008

have just replaced cd drive with a lite-on dvdrw lh20a1p drive. wmp asked for dvd codec when drive tested. downloaded cineplayer codec for xp.
playing dvds in wmp produces sound but no picture, although they play ok if i use nero8. sound can be stuttering at times.

If all else fails, you may need a dedicated DVD player, such as WinDVD.
