    Having trouble with DVD player?
    Operation system Windows 98
    When I open the Icon DVD I get this error:
    Run time error abnormal program termination.

    Download correct device & program from original recovery cd but I still cannot open DVD player. The CD-rom is working properly. Here is the name of DVD software: 1998 Quadrant International Inc. Ver: 1.5.00.0043
    Cinemaster C1.1/1.2, Region: 1.2

    It seems to be looking for c:program files/ati/ati dvdplayer/dvdplayer.exe.

    Thx

    Debra

    Are you able to get your hands on any different dvd player software to try? This is a link to a free player for you. Probably a software issue and not a hardware concern.

    Hi me again, do you think I could correct this problem through regedit and hope it will replace the original program file for the dvdplayer. exe file? If so, do you the info on how to do this ???

    Thx

    NO DO NOT use regedit, you cannot replace or restore a file with that.

    Don't worrt about uninstalling anything at the moment.. Just install a different program to play the dvd's with. At least then you would have a better idea if it's a hardware thing or not. Just because the dvd player came "bundled" with your computer, (and i mean the software, not the hardware) doesn't mean its the best one for you. Try something different.. I bet you can get it to play.
