DVD Wont Play Because Of Copyright Protection Error!

My DVDs will play (in WMP or Real Player) for about 10 to 20 minutes and then stop because of "digital copyright protection" or because "copyright protection failed". The DVD will play in Real Player Classic, BUT the video will skip and stall.
The video is much cleaner in Real Player and WMP.

This is a rather recent phenomenon. What do I need to do remedy this?
I am broke and not willing to spend cash on something that was working just fine
2-3 months ago. I installed a new CD-R a month ago, but I don't see how that would effect my DVD-ROM drive.

Also, it doesnt matter if I reboot or disconnect from the internet...sometimes it doesnt work at all and other times it will play a DVD for 20 minutes than stop and the error message will pop up.

I want to play my DVD's in Real Player and have NO MONEY WHATSOEVER to buy new DVD player software etc...

Thanks for you help in advance. This is frustrating as [bleep].
