  1. hi,
    ever since i reformatted my computer (vaio vgc-rb53) i have been having trouble playing dvd's on my computer using any type of program. divx / wmp / quiktime.

    i have downloaded the latest version of both the 9200 se drivers and the dvd drive.
    i posted a picture of the error i get but it says

    "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."

    i have downloaded all drivers and updated them, i don't know whats wrong help? thanks!

    It's not a driver issue. While Windows Media Player is capable of playing DVDs, it can't do so without the proper codec (decoder). Windows XP does not come with it natively. You need DVD player software (with codec) or you can download the codec from the internet.

    Sorry, I'll try and clarify what I wanted.

    1. Click Start>Run>devmgmt.msc>Ok
    2. Click on the + next to "DVD/CD-ROM drives"

    Give us the name of the drive that is giving you the problem.

    You can try installing this. If your DVD's still won't play in Windows Media Player try another Media Player (such as VLC).

    I guess if you're satisfied then that's all that matters :)...
