Power dvd / unsupported format in drive D ?

  skidzy 21:59 27 Feb 2006

Hello ..
XP Home SP2....Ive recently tried to play dvd's with the power dvd on my system but get the error message:

Power Dvd: with unsupported Format in Drive D

Dvd will work fine via Windows Media Player.
Im guessing a registry entry is missing ? or maybe some Codec,but without knowing whats missing...im struggling to fix the problem.
Ive done a Google and Microsoft search to no avail.
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Also done system restore,but im not sure how long ive had this problem as ive not used the Power Dvd recently.

******** Thanks in advance *********

Its possible something in Power DVD has been corrupted, if it worked before then try deleting PowerDVD and reinstalling it.

Thanks for the reply BB
Power dvd came preinstalled.The system is 4 years old now and really dont want to do a recovery if i can help it...
I never had the xp windows disc,just a recovery disc.
I agree its possibly corrupted and was hoping there may be a way to sort this out if possible.
Thanks for the input BB
