But that DivX AntiFreeze Filter is a dead gimme that someone was installing DivX and what other CODECs and DivX players on the machine.

In short, the machine is likely corrupt in ways I can't begin to imagine. Is there a way back to before Divx and all that?

PowerDVD will play those DVDs you get at BlockBuster, Wallmart and so on. If you are trying to play ripped-off DVD or pirated material, then please don't ask for help on that here. It's outside of the rules you can read at

"kinda wonder did i need all thoes playes on my computer so i will delete them and just put dvd copy on"

All this "stuff" of "dvd copy", divx, divx players have gummed up the works. I really wish I could offer you some dranoPlus to blow it all off since I play DVDs all the time with just any old DVD drive and PowerDVD (the bundle...) And even with the DVD writers, they play the DVDs just fine.

Please don't get upset with me over the state of affairs, but all this dvd/divx stuff has done something to the machine. More hardware isn't the answer, but what is the answer may be difficult with all that installed.

I am a bit confused as to what your question is. Are you asking why there are no sound when you played a store bought dvd on your dvd burner? and you are using "power dvd"?

I don't have a dvd writer so I am not a 100% sure but my guess is that the writter should be able to play dvd disk ok.

This is not a legal forum or rather...
by R. Proffitt Forum moderator / January 4, 2004 11:14 AM PST

That's up to you to decide. The forum policies here are quite clear and we all know what country this forum is hosted in, so its best to concentrate on problems with hardware and software rather than go near any piracy issues.

If you want, call the RIAA and MPAA and ask them? (Just kidding.)

But your solution is pretty much what I suspected. I'm glad you were able to clean it out and move forward.

Best of continued luck,

I don't know whether making a copy of your own dvd is consider illegal or fair use is just opinion. I don't believe it has been tested yet (or has it?). Needless to say, cnet just don't want to tango with the RIAA & MPAA so we just can't talk about it.
