Hmm, power dvd has its own decoder and you can pick it up really cheap now. Its an excellent PC DVD program, with excellent picture and sound quality to match. That might just get it working for you

try re-installing your DVD decoder, because it currently may still have the setting for the old drive, and it's not picking this new one up?
