    Well i dont know recently my display driver crashed for my xfx radeon hd5750 probably different problem because i had that problem with udf before hand.

    Anyhow i followed the directions and nothing was on the cd/dvd but there was on the disk so i deleted the upper filter and I had made a restore point before. let you know how it goes thank you.

    1) Do you have all your stuff backed up? You might also want to recreate a clone backup image of your hard drive at this point (so you can always recover back to this exact point)
    EASUS Todo backup is good freeware

    2)I'd then also try reinstalling the DVD and graphics driver (also check XFX website to see if you have the latest drivers)

    For dvd, you can simply uninstall from DevMgr then reboot. Windows will reinstall the dvd driver

    For your graphics card, suggest you try
    > Uninstall looking for the card in Ctl Panel -> Add/Remove programs
    > Install DriverSweeper
    > Run DriverSweeper and check the box so it cleans up and remaining ATI Display driver remnants
    > Go the XFX website and download / install the latest driver version for you graphics card

    Great news :grinthumb

    And thanks for the update. I learned something new myself... I wouldn't have guessed it was a codec issue. Now i know too!

    (tho if you still have problems with the graphics card you might want to try the graphics card reinstall)
