My OS is Windows XP Pro SP/2. I started up Sonic Cineplayer last night and it would not recognize any of several DVD's I have. The error message given was failure to initialize video stream. The help file gave a list of suggestions, the first two of which were to make sure I have the latest Windows Media Player and DirectX versions. I went online to try and download Windows Media Play ver 11 since I have ver 10. It would'nt install. I checked my dxdiag and it was for the first time to me very hard to work through all of its exceptions to reaching the main screen. I couldn't download DirectX 9.0c either.
I thought it might be something in IE 7, so I uninstalled it and IE 6 doesnt solve the problem. What other things can I try? Thanks for any suggestions.
