Hey Pit!

No matter what DVD I put into my computer, it will start it up to the language selection screen and then show 3 seconds of the copyright infringement warning, then freeze.

This has happened with several different DVD using several different players.


EDIT: Today it was able to read I Am Legend but still refuses me Shaun Of The Dead!

HEEEEEEEEEEEEELP!

Try them in an actual DVD player, as opposed to your computer?

Is the problem new? Did it play the DVDs before? It could be a region problem, i used to have problems like this when i had a japanese drive installed.

They all work in a normal DVD player.
I assume that my drive is ****ed?

Started happening yesterday, not a region problem, these are German DVDs in a German player, everythings fine except that it's not.

Do you have all the proper codecs installed? Did this problem just start or has it done it ever since you've tried to play DVDs on your PC?

EDIT: Just saw the above two posts. It's probably not a codec problem then.

No, I downloaded a free codec pack just to check anyhow, nothings missing.

I'd say get a new drive. Or, at least, try out the DVDs in a friend's computer to make sure

can you not just play them off your DVD player, grab some popcorn, and make an evening of it?
