I have been trying to get DVD's to play on my PC with no luck. Can anyone tell me what exactly I need. I have an AMD athlon 650, with 128MB RAM. I have a 10x DVD-Rom and a 32MB TNT2 video card. I have downloaded xing DVD player, but it doesn't play correctly, either it will give me a black screen or the video halts so badly it can't be played. (Sound always seems ok.) I am considering buying power DVD as I've heard it's the best, but I don't want to spend the money when I'm worried whether or not it will work in the end anyway. Anyone have any advice?

Your best bet would be to try out Power DVD & Win DVD & see which one works best on your system .They are both readily available for download lots of places .Then when you find the one that works best on your system .Buy it (or not)

If your having problems, try looking here at 7th Zone or at Virtual Dr.

Both sites have heaps of info on PC DVD!
