Strange DVD playing problem
PC running XP SP2 has RealPLayer, Windows Media Player 11 and PowerDVD (antique version) installed on it.
This PC happily plays all DVDs, except one: BBC Active - World Environmental Changes
This DVD works perfectly in an antique Windows 98 PC, and on a DVD player.
On the PC it appears to work in RealPlayer and Media Player, up to a point:
You get the copright bit, then you get a menu. You choose the chapter you want, then choose the subject and it starts playing. But you only get sound, no video pictures :confused:
With PowerDVD, as long as you are running as administrator, it will do all of the above AND play the video clip too. :sigh:
there are no messages in the Event Viewer to indicate a problem.
As I don't want to make the teacher an administrator just to play this one DVD through PowerDVD, has anyone got any other ideas please?
