When I insert a store-bought DVD and select WMP from the AutoPlay selection, I get the following message:
Windows Media Player cannot play this DVD because there is a problem with digital copy protection between your DVD drive, decoder, and video card. Try installing an updated driver for your video card.
I've tried playing different store-bought discs, they all display that message. Other programs just refuse to play them. I've also tried the discs on other players in the house... they play on standard DVD players, the family computer (running Windows XP) and our XBOX 360.
I've followed the advice in the message, I downloaded a new driver from Dell and installed the K-Lite Codec pack. But still I cannot play DVDs. The "Media Player Classic" program it installs won't play it either (it says "DVD: Copy-Protect fail" in the status bar). After scouring the internet for information I've found nothing that helps me. I did find a link on the Microsoft website, but I don't know what to make of it. I don't use screensavers and just have my monitor switch off after 5 minutes to save power... screensavers just waste energy.
I'm really confused, and annoyed. Please help. Does anybody have any ideas?
Thanks in advance,
