Screen Capture Problems...

I have bought season one of Lost and a verity other television shows, I would like to make icons out of the shows but I ran into a problem.

I will watch the shows on my computer using either PowerDVD or Windows Media Player, when I take the screenshot using the “Prnt Scrn” button and paste it on Paint, the image turns out black. I also tried pasting it on GIMP, but the same thing happened, where the image I screen captured should be it is just plain black.

Does anyone know how I can fix this, should I try a different viewing program or should I paste it somewhere else? Any Ides?
