I have a Creative PC-DVD Dxr2 Model DVD2240E F/W=+1.3A I took it out of a PC that when it was installed in there it worked fine. I downloaded the driver update( i also downloaded the drivers from the CD and the Floppy that came with the player) for it from Creatives site and it still wont play DVD's. It does run and work as a CD rom no problem.
When i load a DVD in it reads it and tries to play it using my Real player. Then real player says it needs to download from its website some software. It downloads, then it gives me a window that pops up and says the DVD cant be played.
I then tried a different DVD ( the lion king from my daughters collection) and it set up another player on my PC . Then when i try to play the DVD it pops up a window saying that the navigation isnt right or something like that.
If i try to use the player that came with the DVD software, the remote control comes up and has the info from the CD on it,( the title of the movie, tracks, etc) and when it tries to play the screen goes black and i have to reboot my system completely.
I found that DVD's are very sensitive thats for sure of what software you have loaded into your computer. I dont know what i need or dont need to tell you the truth.
Im stumped, anyone have any ideas?
Thanks in advance
