Media Player 12 Cannot Play Dvd - Disc Region Problem

I have tried to play a home made dvd in wmp12 on my pc recently upgraded to windows 7. The dvd won't play giving the dialogue "wmp cannot play the dvd because the disc prohibits playback in your region of the world. You must obtain a disc that is intended for your geographic region". This is strange because the dvd is four years old and has played happily in win xp and vista on wmp prior to the upgrade to windows 7. Is there anything in wmp 12 that would cause this and how do i get round it?

Error - Insert A Recordable Disc - Dvd Drive Does Not Work

Op: dvd drive does not work right with windows 7 with digital photos i have taken, i want to be able to do a slide show on a dvd that can be watched on tv. Any dvd that i put in, i get the message, "insert a recordable disc". All i can figure out is that maybe it has to do with the cd/dvd drive. I have a hp computer with a atapi dvd a dh16aal ata. The computer came new with windows vista already installed, then we were able to upgrade to 7 which we did.

Dvd Playback Codecs

I have not purchased widows 7 yet, but i know that xp will not play a dvd unless you have third party software installed. Will windows 7 have the same problem?  I saw an article that stated that windows cannot put these decoders in their os's, but i wasn't sure if that applied to windows 7.

The reason i'm particularly picky about this question is that i was doing a fresh install of xp last year and found a huge problem. I tried installing several different dvd software cd's and found that when i installed them, suddenly my computer would be unable to connect to microsoft.com. Weird!  I did this on several different computers on different internet connections. I could never figure out why this was happening (neither could microsoft tech support) so i would hate to have to put up with this same issue with windows 7.

Copy Disc Using Dvd Maker

Ok. Every time i go to windows dvd maker and i try to copy a dvd i made i run into several probs. First, i  have to select "all the files" because nothing shows up under "media/video/picture files" in the d drive otherwise. After selecting everything from my dvd, some of the files still get rejected from being transferred anyway!. Then when i go to click "burn" and it says i need to put in a "blank disc" which i do. After it burns for a minute and gets to about 70% it says cannot burn anymore because of a "invalid pointer. " What is that? Can you not copy a disc using windows dvd maker? If so how?

Obtain Xp Mode On A Dvd Or Cd Disc

How can i obtain windows xp mode on a dvd or cd disc? Downloading via my dial-up connection is not viable for a 469mb file (i tried). I have windows 7 professional 64bit and am trying to obtain the windows xp mode file so i can create the virtual windows xp environment. I only have a dialup connection, so estimated time for a download of the 469 mb file is 28 to 32 hours. I obtained windows 7 with a computer from hp, so microsoft will not provide me with support without a $50 charge. Hp tells me that they are not authorized by to make a copy of the file and mail it to me. I also am unable to use a friend's dsl to download this file, as they have windows xp, and mircosoft, prior to download, checks the operating system to assure compatibility with 64 bits, and prevents the download. No one else i know has windows 7 professional 64bit. The microsoft supplemental and replacement parts desk told me they do not have a disk with either the windows xp mode or the virtual windows xp environment, so they can not help.

Not Able To Play Dvd

I'm having problems with mine as well with the same error message. I am using windows 7 professional 64, i have updated to all the latest drivers and am still receiving the error message "windows media player cannot play this dvd because there is a problem with a digital copy protection between your dvd drive, decoder, and video card. Try installing an updated driver for your video card. "

Older dvd's that i own are playing successfully, but those released within the last year are all receiving the same error. I have tested this on twilight, new moon, transformers and none of those mentioned are playing. The dvd's that i have listed have been purchased at wal-mart as well as best buy. The codec pack in which i am currently using is cole2k.

Unable To Play Slideshow On Dvd

Problems putting slide show using windows live movie maker on a dvd

I have a brand new 6 week old toshiba satellite a500 series laptop computer -everything was installed on computer by techs at best buy.

I created a slide show on the computer using photographs from a recent vacation. Everything plays really well on the computer without a problem. However, now i want to transfer this slide show over to a memorex dvd-r disk so that i can share it with family and friends on other computers. Everything seemed to work correctly without a problem, but when i put the disk into the drive to watch it i got an error message which read "this file cannot be played back".

Computer task bar says "dvd rw drive (d:) blank"

Further down on the same screen though it says "files currently on disc (1)

Florida movie type: wlmp file size 418kb

So it does seem that the movie transferred over to the dvd, but did i do something wrong? I just dragged the movie over to roxie. Was that piece of it done incorrectly?

Please help i am very frustrated. I have had several people try to help me in the past without success. Friend from work is telling me how easy it is, not true for me. Fyi- i can do the basics when it comes to the computer, but not very computer savvy.

Sound Is Garbled When Play A Dvd

I have a compaq presario m2305. I installed windows 7 and all the updates. Everything works great except when i put a dvd in the drive the movie starts to play and the graphics are fine but the sound is garbled. I have attempted to install the conexant ac97 drivers and i still have the problem. Hp website offers no windows 7 support. I can play cd music and media player music without any problems. This only occurs with dvd's. I tried media player and windvd 7 both made the sound like someone giving a "raspberry". I don't want to go back to xp just because of the dvd problem but my girlfriend has to have her dvd's work.

Media Player Wont Play Dvd

I am running windows 7 home premium on a toshiba satellite notebook. The problem is with windows media player. Sometime i can put a dvd in the external dvd burner/player and it will work. When i shut down over night i cant get any dvd to load. I get the message "windows media player cannot play dvd video. You might need to adjust your windows display settings. Open display settings in control panel, and then try lowering your screen resolution and color quality settings. "

I have lowered the resolution and color setting but i always get the same message. Now i'm at a loss as to what to do. I bought this laptop to take on vacation to watch movies while on the airplane. The movies are on the hhd and do work when media player decides to work. The portable dvd player and the movies on the hhd play with nero show time but i have no sound and cant play the entire movie like i can with midea player. Any ideas?
