Hi all! howz it going?!!.
My ? is: Who/Where can I get a DVD Hardware decoder for my PC I am using the Creative's Ovation DVD-Rom.

Oh and another ?: would it be worth using Hardware decoding, or should I get a good Software Decoder, Who and what kind software decoder if I need to go that route?.

probably in a computer store??
but i really dont see any point in having a hardware decoder. even a 700mhz cpu can play dvd's without any issues in software. your choice for a program probably lies between windvd and powerdvd which are more or less the same

You should PM Maxvla
He has experience one of those decoder cards and could probably answer your questions:)

DVD Decoder Cards are good because they help enhance image quality while at the same time decreasing CPU dependency by about 20-50%. :)
