Got Nero 188.8.131.52 for $39, which loaded without a problem; loaded the region setting for USA. Attempted to use DVD decrypter and -Windows 2000 does not have a DVD decoder message; after checking MS site and only finding a reference for WINXP, I decided to try MyDVD that came with the Lite-ON.
Now the fun starts: MYDVD is an ASPI based 'Hook' program, that does NOT have an uninstall option, that was what I looked for after it BSOD on me. Ok, I go into safe mode and try to uninstall via windows -No result, basically this progo caused a Kernal crash on WIN2K Pro. Looks like, feels like a mydoom kernal killer.
