    I just got my (first) DVD drive today and Power DVD player came with it. When I capture a frame with it then paste it into Paint to save it, it squishes the pic into a square so everything looks long. Is there anyway I can paste it into a picture program so that it won't squish it together?
    I tried to do it with Image, but it did the same thing.

    Rob,

    Right click the screen. One menu option is 'Configuration...'. Under 'Configuration/Player Settings/Advanced' ('Advanced' is a button) you'll have to check "Current Video Window Size" (under Captured Aspect Ratio). I think that will do the trick.

    Good luck,


    Cees
