    You may want to try using the troubleshooter Microsoft provides for this problem.

    I had the same problem when upgrading from Win98se to Xp and so I upgraded the new Decoder for windowXp and it works just fine. Just pop a dvd in the dvd-rom and let xp shows you how to download the decoder for Power DVD. When the installation is over, I am sure it will work.

    Here's a link and information on PowerDVD: http://www.hival.com/powerdvd.htm

    If you have a hardware Decoder make sure XP is using it. You make have to get updated software from the manufacture for XP.
