I've recently had to wipe my hard drive and reinstall everything. I previously had PowerDVD on my system, and it happily played both prerecorded DVDs and those I'd burned myself elsewhere (I downloaded appropriate codecs for the latter). However now that I've reinstalled my system, I can't get either PowerDVD or Windows Media Player to play DVDs. PowerDVD just refuses to do anything when I hit play, and Windows Media Player gives me a mesage telling me to change my screen resolution and quality settings.
I'm running on Windows XP, I have Windows Media Player 10, and the PowerDVD is one that came with the computer when I bought it. I can't find a version in the properties folder, though. My computer is an Acer Travelmate250.
I can't think what to do, and I honestly can't remember if I downloaded any extras to make it work last time.
Many thanks in advance for any help.
