Hey, I'm new to this forum and I have a problem with my DVD player on my computer. It is a fairly new Dell--I just got during the Summer. My DVDs won't play anymore. I have played them many times before, but now for some reason they won't play. I have played them in Windows Media player and the Dell Media Center and neither of them will play my DVDs anymore. When I try to play them I get some message about screen resolution or copywrite. I don't know what to do. Can anyone help me? Thanks!

Welcome to BC Sarahmacdaniel

Which version of WMP do you have? As far as screen resolution, please right click on an empty space on your desktop properties settings and post us what you have. Also advise which video card you have..

Its also pretty common to have cd\dvd drives just die... Even if they seem new.

Try putting a data cd or something in and see if it can read that.

(possibly it might have somehow changed the dvd region...)

I have version 10 Media Player and I have already done all the possible screen resolution changes and it didn't solve the problem. I have even tried all of the troubleshoot suggestions from the Media Player and none of them helped. I still don't know what to do. It still read cds.
