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?
