My problem is that when calling D3DXIntersect, the function returns bHit as true, only if I haven't moved my camera around at all. After I have, it always returns false, no matter how obvious it is that it should return false. I have posted the code I used below and an example program I made to demonstrate the problem can be found at http://www.geocities.com/knightsinexile/target.zip. Any help would be appriciated .
BOOL Intersect(D3DXVECTOR3 pos, D3DXVECTOR3 dir, LPD3DXMESH mesh)
	BOOL bHit;
	D3DXIntersect(mesh, &pos, &dir, &bHit, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0);
	return bHit;

if( Intersect(PlayerPos, Normalize(LPos), g_Targets[0].m_Mesh.m_pMesh) && g_Targets[0].m_Visible && !g_Targets[0].m_Hit && g_Targets[0].m_Ready)
		g_Targets[0].m_Hit = true;
		g_Targets[0].m_Visible = false;
		cout << "Target #0 hit!" << endl;
P.S. In the sample there are actually 10 (it shows them loading) targets because I was expirementing, but only one should be tested or rendered.

You should post a little bit more of code. For example, how do you calculate LPos?

The intersect funcionts of D3DX are independent of any camera transforms, so chances are that you''re miscalculating either the PlayerPos or the LPos variables.
