    I build computers and every DVD drive I put into my system, I can't get it to work unless I install PowerDVD (it will work most of the time with PowerDVD, don't ask why???). Here's what I usually use:

    Celeron 2.4GHz
    Biostar MOBO
    256MB RAM
    60Gb HD
    Sony 5x DVD Drive
    Windows ME

    I can't get DVDs to play on these systems. I encounter the problem after a fresh install and update of most windows me patches. When I insert a DVD, WinDVD comes up and I have DLL problems or a program interacted with other one wrong. So the program just shuts down. It happens all of the time. Here is the problem that I am having currently. When I insert DVD, it opens WinDVD then says: "Syzygy has caused a problem in GPI.DLL. Syzygy will now close" and then it closes. The problem also happens with InterAct. Maybe not the same problem, but one similiar. Since it is happening on most of my systems (not the same problem, but similiar...open up and error comes up and then closes), I believe it may be some type of DVD update that I am missing. What do you guys think?

    It says after I close that syzygy has also caused an error in MFC42.DLL also.
