Hello all,

I've just bought the DVD set "The Dark Knight Trilogy" and had intended to play the discs on my desktop PC. However, the 2nd disc (The Dark Knight) won't play on either Windows Media Player or on VLC (2.05).

I have received the following message on 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."

My desktop runs Window Vista Home Professional (32 bit) and my DVD Drive is appropriately set (Region 1). And, according to my machine, all my drivers are up to date.

BTW, I also have a laptop (Toshiba) running Windows 7 Home Basic (64 bit) and the disc also won't play on that one.

The computers recognize the disc and I can explore what's inside but that's about it.

I do have a collection of Region 1 DVDs so I am quite stumped on this one as this is the first time this has ever happened.

Many thanks for your help.

There is a moral to this story but it goes against this forums T&C's to say it.

It's very sad when paying customers who support the hard work talented people put in to making films and games end up ripped-off with 2nd rate shoddy products.

You'd think if disc 1 & 3 of the trilogy play just fine, disc 2 would also. Wonder what Warner Brothers was thinking when they released this. As you said matthewdownloads "paying customers that support the work of talented people end up being ripped-off by shoddy products."
