WMP 11 codec trashed?

Recommended Posts

Imgburn 2.5.1

Installed last week to burn a HDD based compiled (personal) DVD.

Did the job fine but I couldn't watch with either Windows Media Player 11 or PowerDVD.

WMP just says "Unknown DVD" and PowerDVD plays sound only with swirly patterns on the screen.

 

So, after checking I still had all the codecs installed I went back to a pre-ImgBurn-installed HDD and WMP, etc., worked fine.

 

So I installed ImgBurn to burn another copy of my DVD.

Burned the DVD and now will only play with VLC - same as last week.

 

The conclusion seems to be that ImgBurn trashed some setting which prevents WMP & PowerDVD accessing the codecs.

 

Same problem even after uninstalling ImgBurn. :(

 

BTW - I did reinstall WMP 11 and repaired Win XP SP3 just in case.

ImgBurn doesn't touch anything to do with that stuff.

I appreciate your positive response but evidence suggests that ImgBurn affects something?

To have the same symptoms twice in succession may not be conclusive but it certainly indicates a link?

It's just a standalone exe, there are no drivers, dlls etc.

 

Whatever it is that's messing up your machine, it's NOT ImgBurn.

 

Try running the 'Codec Tweak Tool' (Google it), maybe it'll find and fix your problem.
