open power dvd

click the hammer and nail pic(which is configuration)

click video tab


make sure 4.3 pan and scan movies are set to dont change resolution


16.9 widescreen movies

is set to change to 1024x768

and have ask me before change ticked

also read under that it says

caution:the dislpay may operate improperly with some display cards after the resolution change.please choose "Dont change resolution" if problem persist

so thats where the problem may be at

Error Code: "F6F00018" - This problem is caused because your VGA card can not enable the overlay
function. We suggest that you do the following:
(a) Close all other applications that would use overlay (Like Windows
MediaPlayer, Netmeeting, or other DVD players). Since Most display
cards support only one overlay, If it is used by other applications,
PowerDVD will not be able to access it.

(b) Install the latest DirectX. If you did not know where to download
DirectX, then you can visit the Microsoft Web site to download.
(click here). Some display drivers require the
latest DirectX to work.

(c) Please ensure you have the latest drivers installed for your video adapter.

(d) Please lower your screen resolution, color depth, and refresh rate.
If this still does not work, we suggest that you try to upgrade your
VGA card.
