If so, that's the dump and not "the error".

It would be nice to know what video card you have since I have a similar issue and tracked it down to the video card. This video card doesn't have macrovision on the TV out and PowerDVD doesn't like that at all.

It's error message was far too cryptic until I lucked out and a new DVD drive had a newer version which spewed the error in plain English.

A new video card fixed that one.

Good luck,
