As far as I know, HDCP isn't used on DVDs or BluRay disks - it's a hardware handshaking feature used to prevent direct copying of digital media. It is invoked when using a digital interface (DVI, HDMI, probably Displayport).

Logically, it would apply to DVDs as well. I can't say from experience whether it is.

Perhaps someone can confirm or deny whether HDCP is used when playing commercial DVDs through a digital interface (DVI, HDMI, Displayport).

I have the insignia connected thru VGA from video card to 32 inch TV monitor. But all this worked before, just recently stopped working. If I cant fix it I am goin to call Nvidia maybe I didn't download the correct driver, there are so many drivers to choose from with my card. Like I said I can play regular recordable cds's but when it comes to movies etc,

This is the message that always pops up.......

"Windows Media Player cannot play this DVD because there is a problem with digital copy protection between your DVD drive, decoder, and video card. Try installing an updated driver for your video card"
