When I run a dvd, it runs very jerkily about 2 or 3 frames per second. Sound too is jumpy which figures. My pc is well above the minimum spec Power dvd wants. PC runs on Win98SE with AMD k6 tm processor at 450 Mhz and around 340 MB ram.
your ram maybe ok but according to my dvd player spec 450 is minimum needed so it could be some hungry programs in the background,have you had it working before?i tried my new dvd player(LG gdr-8161b)in my old pc, pent11 350mz with 320 ram and it ran terrible
Stuartli Video acceleration is on full. Have clicked config on powerdvd and it seems OK.
Â ÑÌÇKÑÂMË I think it passed tests when I installed powerdvd.
whybe Have tried several different refresh rates incl default and optimal but no improvement.
JIM Same with any dvd, it plays cd's OK (it is a combo drive). I think I have seen Directdraw overlay listed on the system- can't find it quickly though!
Bodi I don't know windvd - having bought powerdvd with the combo drive I don't think I should have to buy another dvd software or am I being too hopeful?
dfghjkl, woodchip, jaygice maybe it is the cpu but upgrading would be costly. I only want to play the odd interesting items on magazine dvd's don't want to play films so may just have to do without. Ah well :(
Thanks for trying, fellas
