New NVidia drivers corrupt DVD playback

I installed the newest NVidia drivers for XP (v29.42) and it caused PowerDVD 4.0 XP to have corrupted playback of DVDs with the hardware acceleration turned on.

If I turned off the hardware acceleration and the picture is fine, although it's a little bit choppy at times.

I then I rolled back to the previous drivers and everything worked fine with hardware acceleration turned on. Thank goodness for the recovery feature of Xp. I'm just glad I actual created a restore point just before I installed the new drivers (I make it a habit to do so).

My system is as follows:

AMD Duron 1000
640MB RAM
Geforce2 MX2 400 64MB
Windows XP
PowerDVD 4.0 XP

I have all the latest patches to XP and my drivers, but the newest NVidia drivers cause problems.

Anyone else experience this? I don't know if it's the video driver or PowerDVD.

Thanks!

PowerDVD's DVD Hardware Accel is only for when the DVD is paused/stopped isn't it?

29.42's have absolutely no effect on my DVD Playback.
