my boy was given Pirates of The Caribbean dvd for xmas and has no problem playing it on portable dvd player. However, when trying to play it with powerdvd or wmp an error message appears saying unable to play as the disc is protected content. Never had this happen before, and he will be gutted if he can't play dvd's on his pc, so help please.
Windows Media Player by default will not play DVDs at all. You need to download an additional codec in order to get it to play DVDs. I suggest you try something else such as GOM player or mediaplayer classic
