    I have mentioned in briefly in other threads I'm having freezing problems with both Blu-ray and HD DVD using Vista 64. Using their support system this is what I wrote them

    This was their reply

    Their advertising clearly states the PowerDVD is "Vista certified", I see nothing that states Vista 64 is excluded unless someone can point me to that?

    Needless to say I'm not a happy bunny :mad:

    sounds like a typical canned response from Cyberlink...Vista 64 *should* run 32 bit apps in 32 bit mode...so there shouldnt be any issues...however, i did have some freezing issues, but once i upgraded my video card driver, the problem did go away.

    I sometimes get the same problem with Window Vista 32.
    When this happens the disk is running at full bore. I usually have to back up the move a bit and continue.

    I upped my memory from 1 to 2 gig and that seems to have helped a bit. I cannot find the process that is responsible so I think the system decides to swap or something.

    I may try disabling the pagefile.
