    This is normal. Screenshots capture the contents of the computed main image, but not the video overlay. (Main image and overlay are combined in the graphics card's output pipeline, not in the card's memory.)
    You need to use the DVD viewing application to take snapshots.

    From the help section of Intervideo windvd...

    If you want to remember a perfect (or not so perfect) image in a movie, capture it as a still image.

    To capture a still image from a DVD or other video content, at the desired place in the movie, click the Capture button or press P on the keyboard. The image is captured to memory, and the Capture Browser opens.

    To capture additional images, click the capture button in the Capture Browser. Each image is shown by a thumbnail in the browser. Since the images are saved to memory, you can capture images in rapid sequence.

    Captured images can be saved to disc using the Save and Save All buttons in the browser. Closing the browser does not delete the captured images, but they will be lost when WinDVD exits unless you save them.

    The Capture Browser buttons are used to work with captured images. They are:

    Capture/Preview

    Save Current/Save All

    Delete Selected/Delete All



    Note: capture does not work on zoomed regions and when using some types of hardware acceleration. If you are having a problem, try turning off the Hardware Acceleration option in the Video tab of the Setup dialog box and/or in the Color subpanel.


    ...

    If you look at your settings page you can choose the file that the captured picture gets sent to.

    Do a search on your drive for "cap001.bmp" , "cap002.bmp"

    Some graphics chips have trouble capturing images from WinDVD. If you have a problem, disable hardware motion compensation (located on the Properties dialog, under Display) and recapture the image.

    Are you using Windvd 4?
