    Well basicaly when i try to play a DVD using Windows Media Player I am getting the error message that says "Windows Media Player cannot play DVD video. You might need to adjust your Windows display settings. Open display settings in Control Panel, and then try lowering your screen resolution and color quality settings."

    I have indeed got K-Lite Codec pack installed, when i do not have the codec pack installed i get a picture but absolutly no sound what so ever, this used to happen to me aswell. Recently i had to reinstall my whole system due to errors that were beginign to crash my system on a very regular basis, before i had to do this reinstall i had K-Lite installed and could play DVDs on windows media player fine wihtout any problems what so ever, i just do not understand why it is not working now. I also have Divx codec installed, i uninstalled this just to make sure the two were not conflicting with each other, but even with Divx not present on my machine it still would not play. Anyone got any adice on how i can fix this? Im running an Acer Aspire 5735 with windows vista home premium as the OS.

    WMP can be temperamental at times.

    Try VLC media player, it works much better.
