Hi i just had to reinstall windows xp and everything works fine except the Windows media player and Real player i cant play DVD's. I get this 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

Not sure what to do, i put in what i thought were the necessary drivers but maybe i missed something.Any help would be much appreicated.

thanks

Yeah i already had that from a while ago. What i am seeing from research online is that it has something to do with copy protection laws and that Microsoft only enables certain copies of Windows to play any DVD's that have copy write protection(which is almost every DVD in existence). I have tried disabling the DCR thing in WMP settings but that doesnt work either. I uninstalled WMP 11 and installed WMP 9, but same thing. This is really starting to irk me. This is the other message i get> 0xC00D1163: A problem occurred with digital copyright protection

Anyone else have any ideas
?

You might try the k-lite codec package, it seems to be a codec issue, as previously indicated.

Worth reading, IMO: http://msmvps.com/blogs/chrisl/articles/11496.aspx

Well...my experience on my systems...indicate that the codec pack should have corrected your situation.

I don't know what else to suggest.

When I do a clean install, I get the same error message that you received...but installing the K-Lite codecs corrected it.

There are 3 codecs pack to choose from. Which do you recommend for Flexx, Louis? Full, Standard or Basic?

I also see that a vers 5 is available.

@ Flexx. Did you uninstall any previous codec packs? Multiple packs have been known to cause conflicts.

I am not sure how to check which codecs i have, can you tell me now to find out?If there are other ones do i have to remove them?

I clicked add/remove programs and i see DivX codec, DivXconverter,DivXplayer,DivXplus direct show filters, divXwebplayer
I also see at the bottom of the list XP Codec pack.

Any help would be much appreciated


thanks

UPDATE i posted all this about 30 minutes ago, well now it works, downloaded full version 5.05. So now i can watch DVD's YESSSSS.
I have one question when i was installing the Klite thing it kept popping up with messages that said things like files detected broken remove from registry?i kept clicking yes to all of them, probably like 8-10 messages then i clicked done.Is everything ok?

thanks again to everyone who helped out

Glad you appear to have solved it.

I'd have to guess that it was replacing files from your previous install effort.

Those are the only files which any legitimate program may be allowed to replace, so I would not worry about those messages.

Happy computing :thumbsup:.
