    I uninstalled 1Click DVD and now Windows Media Player refuses to play
    DVD movies. I get the following error when I put a DVD in the drive:

    Windows Media Player cannot play the DVD because a problem occurred
    with digital copyright protection.

    However, I can play the movie using InterVideo Home Theater. As
    stated in the Windows troubleshooter, I rebooted, updated my video
    drivers, and I installed XP Codec Pack 1.3.3. But Windows Media
    Player 10.00.00.3900 refuses to play movies. Windows Media Player will
    play mp3s just fine. Anyone know how I can get Media Player to play
    DVDs again? TIA


    I found out the DVD decoders on my PC
    running "dvdupsrd /detect" shows the following:

    Dshow SW:
    Name: "mpgdec.ax"
    Company Name:"Moonlight Cordless Ltd"
    Version: 2.0.0.2525
    CRC32: 0xcad2050e
    VID:0

    W2k Upgrade=no
    Win9x Upgrade=no
    LCID=0409
