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.
