Nice double post Alan..and wouldn't this be easier to get answered in the HTPC forum? http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/biggrin.gif

Anyway. Does the ATI player work for other DVDs? If not try unregistering the WinDVD filters using DVDGenie. Also see if there's a setting to choose the correct driver letter for you dvd-rom. Since I don't have access to ATI here at work though I can't exactly check. Maybe when I get home. Also try waiting. I had to wait several minutes for the R2 PAL Lethal Weapon 4 to load past a black screen for some reason, so there might be something there. If no one else has a problem with CTHD, you may just have a bad disc instead.

Yep, Crouching Tigers are totally hidden here when using the ATI player as well. WinDVD to the rescue!

Alan,
It doesn't work for me either. http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/frown.gif I had to use WinDVD, instead.

Alan: I had the same exact problem with the ATI player on CTHD and yet it played in WinDVD. There must be some sort of flag problem on this disk that ATI has trouble reading.

Strange. My CTHD plays fine on my SD1600, but not on my Toshiba DVDROM, it won't play at all. It locks up. I have the ATI AIW. Should I download this Win thingamajig? I know nothing about it.

If I install it, will it force itself as the default player?

ATI has posted about this on their web site. They say the issue is being looked into.

I managed to watch it on my ATI player. This is what you do:

Go into the menu system on the ATI player when the disc is in the tray,and the ATI player is trying to load it up.(you should have a blank screen at this point).

Right click on the desktop, nd then go to title number 2, which is the preview/trailer title. Let it play, and this will then dump you into the menu that you should have been able to see in the first place.

I have never had any problems with the ATI player before, but this simple trick solved this singlular problem for me.


I suspect it will work well on all other problem discs, but hey.. I could be wrong.

Ken,
I tried your fix and I couldn't get it to work. However, by right clicking on the blank window and selecting "play at specific part" and selecting "title 2", I was able to watch CTHD on the ATI player. I hope one of these fixes works for everyone.
