Hope you can help. I have a new ASUS P5G41M motherboard with Intel G41 Express Chipset, a Samsung SC-S223C SATA Optical drive and an ASUS MS226 monitor. My operating system is Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit. The dvd drive can read and load program discs and plays audio cds without a problem. When I tried to play a dvd movie, I would get an error message from Nero 9 "CSS Copy Protection failure". Windows Media Player says there is a "problem with Digital Copy protection between dvd drive, display adaptor and monitor and suggests I update the display driver. I found on the net that it could be a codec problem so I have installed XP Codec Pack, K Lite codec Pack, K Lite 64 bit codec pack and I have also installed VLC player. I can get a few dvds to play on Media Player Classic but most have an error message "DVD copy protect fail" and VLC just doesn't play anything. I have just had this system fully tested by the supplier to fix a BSOD problem and it has not missed a beat as far as loading programs and anything else I want to put it through but this dvd thing is very annoying. I have seen quite a few similar problems going back to 2007 but the answers given have not worked for me. Can anyone help?
