2 Vcards and Crashing DVD programs


I am running 2 asus 9800 gt nvidia cards. I am using a dual monitor system. Problem is that most DVD programs (including WMP & power DVD) crashes when I try to play a simple DVD. Running in SLI mode I have no problems. (Of course with only one monitor) is there a DVD program that will keep up to the times and work with multiple video cards? Has SLI come out with an upgrade for multiple monitors yet?

Thanks for your response.

  1. I've never heard that one before. Are you sure it is the DVD programs and not the drivers? Have you tried the latest drivers to see if that helps?
  2. Ok, Downloaded and installed the latest Drivers. Geforce182.06. Still having issues. It will crash every dvd program I have except for WMP classic, but even that is flaky. Again, all these dvd programs will run in SLI mode. But not in multi screen mode. Big pain to switch every time I want to view a DVD. Especially since this rig is intended to build DVDs.

  3. My work laptop has two 8700M GTs and I tested a DVD while running in dual monitor mode at work. One chip was powering the main laptop display and the other was powering an external monitor. Anyway, running Dell Media Direct (or whatever their DVD software is called) worked fine on the main laptop screen. Can you get your hands on that Dell software to try it?
