Hay to all GeeXboX users out there
As youve probibly gussed im having problems with GeeXboX.
My Problems started when i booted into the os.
The dvd player is the only thing that works and a tad slowly at that.
Playing music cd's
Nothing Happens,After I select the mp3,jpg,cd,avi etc
The screen just goes black and im brought back to the main screen
You would think that if anything would fail it would be the dvd player because it is the most complicated.
I Have included the system information for my computer.

And can it install to my hard disk without killing xp[\b]
