I have an old 2nd generation creative encore DVD player. I'm using:
Software DVD decoder (MaxiSoft)
Athlon Tbird 700
384 MB Mushkin pc133
My computer could be running literally for days, but when I try to play a DVD, it plays for a maximum of 20 minutes and then it locks up. I can't press the fast forward or reverse button because it will lock up also. Should I try using different software decoding? How do I utilize the DVD hardware decoding in the Viper 2? Should I stick with my Viper 770 TNT2 Ultra and use the decoding on that card? I also have a seperate DVD decoder card from creative but WinME dosen't seem to like it very much. I'm pretty confused and frustrated with this.
