XP up to date, but coaster making while trying to copy playable DVDs (Made from family cine via VCR)- led me to think that the burner wasn't up to scratch.
Fitted a new burner as well but both return a Windows Media cant play type error.
Currently wont play even commercial DVD movies though both drives will play data files
A long trail of try this and that has only dug deeper and clearly I have dug myself a hole.
I had Nero 7 when the trouble started, have tried and uninstalled Nero 9 so currently have no Nero installed. I did try the free codecs 'ffdshow', and that is still installed. Will someone give me a hand out of this mess please?
Have installed this to a PC as clean as I can make it.
Result - it loads and acknowledges the DVD to copy, but at the moment of asking it to do work it throws a Windows type of error - "Ashampoo Burning Studio 9 has encountered a problem and needs to close, Sorry for the inconvenience" - or words to that effect.
I have tried reinstalling it by download and from a saved copy on HD. with uninstall and CCleaner and reboots each time.
