DVD Player of the laptop cannot play some DVDs

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

Probably you too encountered problems playing certain copies of DVD. Many times there are DVDs that I cannot play with my desktop’s DVD player. I know nothing is physically wrong with the  hardware because it can perfectly play other DVDs. During attempts with these problematic DVDs I would receive a message telling me about copy protection security issues? What does this exactly mean? Is there a way to overcome this problem? Please help. Thank you.

Windows Media Player

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.

hi Taling

its looks like your DVD is failing and if you heard some catching noise that means there is something wrong with your DVD drive and need to be replaced.

and also try to find some codec and try to update it, that might help cause K-Lite Mega Codec Pack can play any format video file.

Hi Taling,

Windows Media player has a copy protection software that decodes the information on the DVD before displaying it. If this software fails to start correctly, you might get this error. Like unable to read the DVD properly. Let troubleshoot this in a logical way.

 Lets follow the steps below:

  • Clean the DVD
  • Uninstall the DVD driver from device manager and restart the computer this will reinstall the DVD driver.
  • Buy a DVD lens cleaner that comes with DVD and liquid to automatically clean the lens when you place the DVD on the drive. It could be as simple as Cleaning the lens
  • Update the Display driver with the latest version from you computer manufacturer website.
  • Download the Windows media player codec from this site.

Hope these works out for you.
