Default DVD Problem

Hello, for some reason when I goto play DVDs on my computer they play very bright, I mean so bright its not even understandable. I tried Real Player, Power DVD, and Windows Media Player and all of them seem to give the same results. I looked in the settings and everything seems fine. I also turned hardware acceleration off and that made no difference what-so-ever. Other movies such as AVI's and MPEG's work just fine though.

Help appreciated,

Andy

What is your System properties set to...
Is it to better looking or strictly performance ?

You said DVD's meaning plural... Did they all look the same ?

it's isn't neccessarily the newest driver, but the MS certitified drivers when it come to nvidia, because they care about gaming and little else
