ok... I'm stumped on a geek thing with the computer I built for the kids... I used an ATI Radeon 7000 video card... but it's apparently not a "Real" ati card... rather it's a "powered by" ATI card.

I put a DVD player in their computer... you know, so they can play the games that come on all those DVD's we get for the kids...

So.... there is no 180-XXXXX etc. code on the disk to unlock the ATI Web Site's distribution of the DVD decoder for the Radeon Card.

I've net searched... and loaded drivers and blah blah blah... but alas... earwax.

Any idea what the idea is? I'm just basically confused about what it is I don't have... I mean, there's a DVD decoding engine on the 7000 card... there's a DVD player that Windows XP recognizes... but when I launch the program on the DVD to play the DVD games... let alone watch the actual movie on the computer... it kacks... grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!
