Blu-ray discs won't play

I have a new desktop PC with a blu-ray burner. When I try to watch a blu-ray disc using either Power DVD 9.5 or WinDVD 2010, I get an error message that says I am unable to play the protected content on my digital output device, or my display environment does not support protected content playback. A friend suppested that I just wasn't using the correct connections to connect the graphics card to the monitor. I initially used the DVI output on the card to the DVI input on the monitor, then I purchased an HDMI to DVI adapter and tried that. Neither worked. What is the correct configuration for this connection to get the best possible picture?

I am using Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit OS
Intel Core i7 3.2Ghz CPU with 12GB RAM
Graphics card is ATI Radeon HD5870 with the following outputs: DVI, DisplayPort, HDMI, VGA.
Monitor is an HD LCD with the following inputs: PC Analog, PC Digital, TV Tuner, Composite, S-Video, Component, D-Sub.

Does your video card and tv support HDCP?

You may need to install the drivers for your card, or get the codecs for blu-ray support.

Thanks
