When I try to play a dvd on media player i a pop up saying "Media Player encountered a problem and needs to close. Sorry for the inconvieience" I get this pop up on a few other things also. So it probably isn't my media player but I didn't know where to post this problem.

It probably is your media player. Try to see if there are any updates for it, and then download them.

I'm assuming you're talking about Windows Media Player too.

Worse comes to worst, you can always uninstall it and then reinstall it. If you decide to uninstall it, it's not directly in the Add/Remove Programs section, but it's in the section to the left of it that says Add/Remove Windows Components.

Thanks for your reply Walkman, and yes I was talking about Windows Media Player. The same problem also occurs in my Intel Actual Player. I did a reinstall on the Media Player and upgraded the Intel Actual Player and I get the same thing.

VLC Player is a good alternative and should play any formats. Which file types are you referring to?
