Setting a particular DVD player programme to be th

I am having problems after a Nero 8 upgrade, one of the problems maybe because every video file automatically starts with NeroShow when invoked, and it will not play.

The video files (DVD files) will play using PowerDvd.

So how do I make PowerDVD the default player for these files.

My problem with the Nero 8 is quite interesting, until the update it worked pefectly. After the update it just crashed when the recoding part started up. Also the only file that NeroShowtime will play are the mp4 files that the earlier version of Nero 8 created. I uninstalled the programme and then reinstalled- the fault still exists. I am awaiting technical help from Nero.

Right click on the icon > open with > choose program scroll down to Power DVD and before you click on it tick the box at the bottom "always use this program to open these files" then click on Power DVD
