wmp12/wmc don't play dvds

hi. i have power dvd which plays back the dvds fine, so i know they work. but only in wmp12 and windows media centre they do not play back. they both have the exact same problem, it detects the dvd. looks as though it's about to play it but nothing. screen remains black, no sound, doesn't display how long the movie goes for so i cant press play. and no error message! very confusin. any suggestful hints are appreciated. cheers

Uninstall any and all codecs and codec packs you have previously installed.

Once it's working and fixed, you can install Shark's codec pack.
