I like my new vista but media player is starting to annoy me as several media discs will not play.

all genuine discs no copied ones.

Just found this on another Forum, It's with a different Graphics Card (ATI) but it should work (Worth a go, Just to see if it works),

"Whenever I try to play a DVD, I get an error message saying "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."

If I click on a link it takes me to this page (click here) for Windows Error C00D1163 which tries to sell you a new decoder."

"If it is a copyright or DRM issue try installing AnyDVD click here

It removes copyright info, region settings, etc automatically when you insert a disc. It personally worked great for me when some software refused to play DVD's due to copyright issues. When inserting a disc make sure to let anydvd scan and unlock it first before opening any media players."


"It seems like installing AnyDVD and then uninstalling it has cured the problems Windows media player and media center was having with DVD playback. Thanks again for the tip. :)"
