    Hello all,

    I want to play a dvd on a windows 2000 PC but its just not working. I have tried vlc, media player classic, windvd and it loads the dvd with no problems but when it get to the menu it just crashes.

    I have no idea what the problem is, so any help would be much appreciated. The dvd works fine on XP. Oh, and I don't want to pay.

    Cheers

    No ideas?

    Is there anywhere I can get a free dvd decoder or anymore programs I can try?

    cheers

    if vlc and media player classic both don't work i'd be inclined to think it was either a problem with the disk itself or the drive. have you other disks you can test with?

    Its not the disc - that works fine in other machines. I was thinking it might be the drive but its really strange that it can get to the menu screen and thats it. Surely if there was something wrong with the drive it just wouldn't play at all.

    This is such a frustrating problem.

    Cheers for you help though.
