    yes, well it says it's up to date any how, I manually do the updates about once a week. I've been using 8 now for 5 months, I can't re3ally recall exactly when this problem started because i don't play c.d's or d.v.d's much on this comp. I thought it might be a codec issue, but I did " all" in synaptics and it seems to have downloaded them...I'm puzzled.

    Hey bigvoo.
    Do you have win32codecs? It might actually be named differently in your repos.
