I downloaded and ran a program called STAT which can be found at http://www.statonline.harris.com/ in case you are not familiar with it. Its a secuity hole finding program. Anyways, the program turned off my DDRAW aparently somewhere in my XP Corporpate SP1 Registry I'm assuming... Here is a copy of the history from STAT on my computer http://www.tankhead.com/~drnutbush/pics/stat.jpg showing it found DDRAW to be vulnerable to something...

Well, DDRAW is required to run my DVD software and I would like to have it back :)

I tried upgrading to DX9, but still did not resolve the issue.. I also ran DXDIAG and DDRAW tests reported everything working fine...

Here are some of the error windows i'm recieving when I try to play my DVD's now...

Looks like i found the culprit in a report from the STAT program... Just thought I would share it as well...


Go to 'Start | Run' and enter "Regedt32." From the Registry Editor go to
menu item 'Window | HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE.' Within the
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE window navigate to the registry key
"HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Gra
phicsDrivers\DCI". Double click on the value
"Timeout:REG_DWORD:0x7" and change the data in the DWORD
editor from 7 to 0, then click on OK. This prevents direct access to
video hardware and memory.
