RE: Cannot play DVD on Vista with Media Player
I am replying to my own question here because I finnaly got it to work. I
took the adivce Canuck57 wrote about the compatibility of the DVD, Vidoe
Card, and MONITOR!!! Monitor is exclimated there only because thats the only
thing I didn't think of updating and there you have it. Automatically
updated in Device manager and after a quick reset "vooala!" (however you
spell it) So don't give up people who have having that same:
"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. "
It all matters the DVD to the CPU to the Video Card then finnaly to your
monitor... A lot of stuff it has to travel through to get to the screen.
Make sure EVERYTHING is updated is my only advice, not just the vidoe card,
which windows media player advises thats the only problem it could be. Had
to do a little more work finding out that but its worth it movies run awesome
on my computer now.
