Forget the REAL real player, it $uck$ because of that extra crap and commercials.
Works best with WinAvi converter 7 to decode and encode any video format.

I wish now he had never gotten around to it. In device manager patin couffin has a yellow exclamation but all the rom drivers and the ide channel drivers look ok, I was really hoping this would work but back to the drawing board.
I cant believe i am the only one to ever have this happen from the Sony DRM rootkit.Any thoughts or similar experience?
Message:The driver is inactive or not installed properly.Please re-install DVD43 to enable the DVD drive.The message you received occurs due to several different conditions.
For whatever reason, DVD43 cannot connect to the DVD drive. For me, after having DVD43 run fine for a long time, the same message showed up at boot-up. I had borrowed the SATA connection to a Sony DVD drive to test a hard drive. After testing, the machine was shut down. It was a while before that machine was re-booted. When I did reboot, I received the same message you received. It looked like it might be a message displayed when DVD43 checked for a later version of itself. The first thing I did was upgrade DVD43 to the latest version. Following the next reboot, I had the same message, only now from the latest version of DVD43. I realized now I had forgot to reconnect the DVD drive. The message may merely indicate your DVD is not connected. Check the connectors for a good connection.
I agree the DVD43 message could be better descriptive and list this as a possibility. There are several other possibilities that can cause this message. If you upgraded any software that gets involved with the DVD communications, it might have messed things up. Check the Device Manager for any yellow flags.
One good thing is that it got me to upgrade DVD43 to the latest version.
I had 1.01a RC5; Nomatter what I did I couldnt get a decent volume. Absolutely impossible. So it was a big disappointment.
Now trying 1.02a test 8. First I tried "Loud". Didnt help. Then unchecked all checkboxes in Mixer page.(Someone said it was smart) It helped nada.
Dont know what to do in order to get loud sound. Irritating .
The program doesnt seem to register the settings. I select load ,and save and ok.Next time I start it ,Load is gone again. Doesnt the author know how to initiate combo-boxes in C-sharp or whatever?
