Try installing VLC Media Player. It seems to play anything and everything and it's free

Have you tried updating your display drivers, as the error message has suggested you do?

Next, try removing any and all codec packs you have installed, then download and install Shark007's Windows 7 Codec Pack. It may help with DVD playback, but I can't promise anything, as I've never had problems with DVD playback on Windows 7.

FYI, Shark007 is a member here on SevenForums!

Sounds like something in your system is failing HDCP:

High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Some versions of the nVidia control panel has an HDCP status check. Does yours?

DVDs don't use HDCP...
