Playing a DVD on my PC used to be fine, not anymore.
When I insert a DVD, windows media player says - 'a problem occurred with digital copyright protection'. If I use real it says 'key exchange for DVD copy protection failed'.
Very odd, especially because the DVD's I am using are 100% genuine and am using the most recent codecs etc. However I am able to play the DVD through PowerDVD (which came bundled with my Dell) but that software is simply terrible.
Any ideas? Please Help!!
PS. as a side issue, why do you have to have PowerDVD or an alternative to run DVDs on your PC at all?
PowerDVD and WMP should work okay together, they do on mine anyway, but I don't know about Real Player, you could try Real Alternative. click here I did see a mention of that error message reported if DVD X Copy was installed.
I suspect this is a DRM issue and is caused by copy rotection on the DVD rather than a problem with your pc.
This is what the Microsoft knowledge base has to say on this error message:
"C00D1163: A problem occurred with digital copyright protection A troubleshooter is available to help you solve this problem. To troubleshoot the problem, see the DVD Troubleshooter in Windows Help. In the troubleshooter, click the "I receive a message about digital copy protection" option."
