Windows 7: Can't Right Click and Play a Dvd Movie Broken :(

Can't Right Click and Play a Dvd Movie Broken :(

When I right click my DVD drive and click on Play to play a Regular DVD I get an error. I installed the Xiph pack and then removed it. Then installed Tversity with some Codecs and then both the 32bit and 64 bit Shark Codecs. (Which I have set to suggested shark settings and rebooted) If somebody could help me fix this, that would be great!

What model DVD player do you have? Have you checked to make sure it is properly connected?

You still didn't give me the make or model of your drive. Knowing this might help me find a solution for you.

You may try deleting the files under this folder and restart media player.
Code:
%USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Media Player\
