nVidious Posted October 30, 2007 Report Share Posted October 30, 2007 (edited) Hi all. First up, I have tried searching for this but the forum search reports 'Sorry, an error occurred...'. I have the GeForce Go 7400 on board a Sony VAIO FE-Series laptop. I have over 700MB of free graphics memory, and 64MB of dedicated video memory. I just bought the Xbox 360 HD DVD drive, which is plug'n'play compatible with Windows Vista. All you need is software capable of playing HD DVDs, such as CyberLink PowerDVD which I also just bought. Unfortunately HD DVD playback is very jumpy, which surprises me as the laptop can easily play other HD video content at high resolution. With the latest Sony NVIDIA drivers (100.85), the CyberLink advisor suggested my graphics card just needed updated drivers. Now I am using very new modded inf drivers from your website (version 169.02), and it advised me the graphics board and drivers are not capable of HD DVD! It lied to me! :) Here are the detailed reports: <a href="http://www.cyberlink.com/multi/support/ans...aq.jsp?FID=2577" target="_blank">http://www.cyberlink.com/multi/support/ans...aq.jsp?FID=2577</a> <a href="http://www.cyberlink.com/multi/support/ans...aq.jsp?FID=2583" target="_blank">http://www.cyberlink.com/multi/support/ans...aq.jsp?FID=2583</a> As you can see, it says, "We recommend that you have graphics card drivers that support HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection) standard. ... nVidia PureVideo HD drivers can support ... HD DVD playback. Please make sure you download and install ... nVidia ForceWare 93.71 or later version." Worse still, with your drivers instead of jumpy playback I get no playback, and an error message that the graphics drivers are incompatible: http://www.cyberlink.com/multi/support/ans...aq.jsp?FID=2597 Surely my card can handle it? Surely your drivers should handle it? It was supposed to be a pretty high end laptop for games and media use. Anyone know for sure if it supports HDCP or if these drivers are PureVideo HD compliant? Many thanks :) Edited October 30, 2007 by nVidious Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
