Hello there

We can't play any DVDs on Windows Media Player 11 or Windows Media

We kept getting error messages like:

This disc is not formatted to play in this region.

This player is incompatible with the region marking of this disc.

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.

The same DVDs could be played using WMP 11 on Windows XP, AVS DVD
player, and Nero Showtime.

We are running Windows Vista Home Premium and have a NVIDIA GeForce
8800 GTS 512 graphic card.

Anyone can help, please?

Thank you.
