Can't Play DVDs Anymore

    Lately I have been having an issue with both Windows Media Center and Windows Media Player when I try to watch a DVD. In Windows Media Center it says "Cannot Play DVD: The DVD may be in use by another application. If all other applications are closed, the video resolution may need to be lowered or the display connection type does not support playback of the DVD." I have checked multiple times and have not found any other applications using the DVD. Also, I am not sure where I can change the settings it mentions but I didn't change anything recently and I have always been able to play DVDs before.

    When I try watching a DVD in Windows Media Player 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 don't really know what to do with this or how to go about fixing it. I haven't tried much.

    I have to believe that something happened that caused both applications to have issues since they both stopped being able to play DVDs at the same time. I don't know what to do and I don't know what I did. Please help me, any advice or suggestion is welcome!

    Thanks in advance everyone!
