I received this message and have been unable to fix it with info from posts here and other forums.

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.

Here are my computer specs. Not sure if the info below for the graphis adapter is correct?

System make and model – Dell Dimension 5150/E510
OS – Windows XP Home Ed. SP2
Graphics adapter - Radeon X600 256MB Hyper memory (?)
DVD Millennium (Netflix)

The copywrite protection on some DVDs prevent the DVD from playing in a device that is capable of burning DVDs ie your PC.

XP codec pack should solve the problem for media player click here

However I prefer the K lite pack click here

WMP sucks - VLC click here will play anything
