Thread: Media Player And PowerDVD Resume Failure

  1. #1

    Media Player And PowerDVD Resume Failure

    I Have windows XP with 4 users who each have their own login name, and desktop and my documents folders. If I go to switch user and change user, then come back to my login name and I go to resume my movie which is in media player or power DVD and on Pause it goes back to 0:0 and I have to find where I was up to before. Does anyone know why these programs are doing this and how I can fix it?

    Power DVD has an option, configuration > player setting > dvd auto resume setting > 'resume playback from the last scene', but many programs have difficulty with adopting to fast user switching feature of XP as they have been designed for single users on a single computer. Also make sure that 'Terminal services' and 'Fast User Switching Compatibility Services' are enabled and running in services.msc.

    Manual will do,the status should be 'started', but I am not sure that will help the cause. I use PowerDVD version 5 and it doesn't remember the paused scene after fast user switching, as you have described.
