I love PowerDVD but I've experienced this issue myself.

Load a different DVD. Try it. May do same. Then go back to original DVD. Try to resume it. See what happens. If no go, load an XviD .avi file or something other than DVD. Keep trying to load different files, DVD etc...with resume and/or not resume. You should be able to clear it and then PowerDVD wil function normal again.
