Again my best wishes, I reformatted my hardware last week. Only to meet a number of annoying problems. Here's my latest: I can't seem to install (the) UDF Reader to my system. Everytime I install it (one by Roxio or Nero, all not at once obviously), I'm prompt to restart, which I do. During the booting up process, the computer hangs immediately after the Windows loading screen (in other words, I'm stuck on a black screen). I can't even log onto Safe Mode. The only remedy I have is to restart from my last known good configurations. Needless to say, I uninstall the reader and like magic, I no longer suffer from hang ups, but I still can't read my burnt DVD's (which contain ALL of my files). So this is a very big problem. Here are my system specs: 1.6 GIG CPU, 1 GIG Ram, 2 CD-Roms (1 DVD-RW, 1 CD-RW), HDD(1 at 80 and the other at 40), and Windows XP: Pro (SP2). What's troubling is that I can't seem to find an exact reference to my current problem. It's mind-boogling. Do I perhaps have a corrupt .DLL file?
