Simon & Garfunkel

  Macaonasa 00:59 20 Jan 04

I've just moved up to XP from ME after formatting. My Simon & Garfunkel Live at Central Park DVD, which played successfully via PowerDVD 5 under ME, won't play under ME. Other DVDs play okay.

The S & G plays okay in my DVD player.

My dive is the Samsung DVD-Rom SD-612 and the S & G disk is All Regions.

Any Ideas?

i had this problem as well for some reason some perfectly good dvd won't play on xp even if you use a diffrent dvd software i sorted this problem out by re-installing windows xp again i don't know why it does that

Same thing, couldn't read any dvd's after moving to XP. I just changed the drive. They are cheap enough now.

Thanks pc moron.

My drive is listed in the Device Manager as 612. I've e-mailed Samsung to see if I need the b, f or s version.

Samsung have written back already - the fastest corporate response ever (not an automated reply - they misspelled my name).

They told me to contact Dell instead - Dell don't have it. I think it would be more sensible to buy a new drive.
