Directx 9 Error Message

Question

I have an HP Pavilion a 720 n running XP. It has a VIA/S3G Unichrome 1GP video card. Yesterday I upgraded to the latest driver.

 

Creator 2009 gives a message saying that the video card does not fully support DirectX9 and will not let me create menus. (I did finally burn a DVD without a menu).

 

From the HP site I discovered the dxdiag application.This reports that I am running Directx 9.0c 4.09.0000.0904 and that all is ok.

 

When I run creator on my laptop I do see the menu creation so I know what it should look like. Unfortunately the laptop does not have a DVD write drive.

 

Is it expected that dxdiag reports all as ok, but that he video card really does not have the correct level of support? Which video card should I use?

I eventually did burn a DVD using creator 2009 and Windows Media Player plays it with no problems. However Cineplayer just gives a message "One or more codecs required to play this are missing." Obviously they are not missing since Media Player has no trouble.

 

Although some of the assorted problems that I have had with creator may be my hardware I am not at all impressed with this product. Earlier I had another error message "80040273: Error while Encoding Menu" - pressing the 'details' button just repeats the same message. I suspect that problem is due to direct X/video card issues reported elsewhere in the forum, but in general I am not finding this software easy to use.

Your video chip isn' t going to do well, with the software. You need a standalone video card, the type of which, depends on what type of slot you have available on your motherboard.

VIA/S3G Unichrome 1GP video card

 

I would look up my system and see what directx platform it was built on.

 

In a laptop, it's probably a onboard chip not a stand alone video card.

 

Update this directx_nov2008_redist.exe Version: 9.25.1476 Date Published: 11/7/2008 , from here

Make sure In VideoWave or MyDVD, tools, options, grapics test is set to software, that might be part of your error.

Thanks - I updated with that distribution,but it did not help. I guess that I will have to install a new video card, but I do not understand why Media player has no problems, but cineplayer does.

 

I do not follow the last recommendation. I have Creator 2009 - how does VideoWave or MyDVD relate to that? I do not see any options/graphics test setting.

 

PS - I had intended to place my two original questions each under the appropriate subject, but neglected to switch to the 'Playback issues' section!

Videowave and myDVD are two (of about 30 or so) of the applications in Creator 2009. These 2 appps are the ones to be used for creating DVDs.

To get to the graphics tes, launch Videowave the select Tools/Options and the graphics test.
