    Hi

    I had a probelm which required me to delete some keys in the registry and by mistake i delete a wrong one. As a result when i now play DVD it comes up with error message:

    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 know u need to be carefull so i made a system restore but it wont work. Does anyone know what i can do? DVDs now only work on VLC player. I have done a repair with the special CD but still no luck? i have tired to reinstall WMP (11) but same result. i do have codecs.

    thanks in advance

    I can help you get it to work again... But I need to know "what" codecs you already have installed. :)

    thanks alot,

    i have many: i have the divx codex, ffd show, ac3 filter, avi. I ran microft XP video decoder check up and it came up with

    ffdshow video decoder, sonic CM(R) DS video decoder 4.0, Ligos MPEG Video decoder, ffdshow raw video filter. However none of them are compatiable with WMP10 (i have WMP11)

    (I use to be able to play DVDs)
