My HD 7870 cannot play BD disks
Driver 17.2.1 does not have hardware support for H.264, MPEG-2 or VC-1 as far as Cyberlink BD adviser can see
when somebody gets around to it......
anybody know which driver does work right?
Do you have Windows 8 or Windows 8.1?
I see you have no GPU driver installed.You have Microsoft Basic Display Adapter.
I checked my PC and 16.11.5 has no problem with this tool.
1.Delete C:\AMD folder
2.Uninstall all AMD software and clean your system in safe mode by DDU program and install 16.11.5 or 17.2.1 driver
windows 10 x64
16.7.3 is the most stable for games
According to your picture your OS is Windows 8
I think this "adviser" cannot be trusted.
First of all you need more actual PowerDVD version. 2016 for example. It should work with your 16.7.3 driver
And try the latest version of this "Advisor"
I have the same version you linked to
I have tried many different divers, none seem to work
As far as I know 16.7.2 is latest stable/proper driver for 1st gen GCN.
I have couple theories.
1. PowerDVD version you are using is bugged and can't detect GPU.
2. There is something wrong with powerDVD and your OS.
3. Considering you are using drivers with "not-wanted feature" for your GPU, it can be driver related.
Since I have sort of same GPU it look like it works with 16.7.2 and win7 at least.
It could be windows 10, drivers, who knows
just another festering problem
Maybe the "cancelled" win10 Feb.updates ?
They have drip fed a couple (MRT, Flash), no downloads fail bug fix(not had that), or multi monitor bug fix, the possible major memory leak bug (which is mainly why it was pulled).
I wouldn't be surprised if the cancellation may also be contributing to the many recent graphics driver bugs on the new 17.2.1 driver ?
The new version of Windows is now close to release based on the reports I have, there are still a lot of problems to fix.
Only recently was the new windows defender app added which suggests features are still being added at the last minute
More universal windows apps
