For some reason I cannot seem to playback DVD's on my computer. Having been recommended that I use VLC, I find for some reason that this program causes problems with the computer, and VLC as to be uninstalled.
The computer is using XP Home.
Any suggestions for a reliable download would be appreciated. I have used previously Cyberlink Power DVD 6, and if I am able to find the installation disk, I may give this an attempt. I believe it worked in the past?.
I purchased the Xenta SK-86EL from Ebuyer because it was offering a number of 'extras' like dimmer and full lighting, plus reviews appeared good. It looks the job, very neat and nice. Problem is, I haven't got around to fit and test yet!.
I have found my previous copy of PowerDVD 6, and seeing your link have downloaded a copy of PowerDVD 12. I think that trying to download you have to take a little care, because it seems to want to install a number of additions, that might want un-ticking or further understanding. I had to download the program twice, because the first install wouldn't show or activate properly.
Having attempted the second download, it completed, but I now get 3 messages stating that my system is not capable of using PowerDVD 12. (1) VGA card needs update (2) Not enough VRAM on VGA card (3) Remote Desktop under Windows XP is not allowed. So I will try my original PowerDVD 6 and see what happens?.
(At present, its all trial and experiment, time permitting).
I forgot to mention that possible delays in fitting the keyboard, is partly due to a KVM switching arrangement that I use, so it might not be a simple job of 'just plugging in'. I have had to obtain some adapters, whether this will work through the KVM as I wish, not sure?.
Thanks for that, as you say, its probably my computer the problem. A reformat is about due?.
Looking at the program mentioned, it would seem that some XP users had problems, so I think, possibly best to leave it alone this time.
Would mention after removing PowerDVD 12 with Revo, it upset the computer, and I have had to re-install a couple of previous programs,to get some things working again. So likely a reformat, when time permits.
