    DVD won't play (XP )

    Edit:

    No mind... I tried it in Real Player and got a version o0f the same error, and they say it's either a corrupt video driver, audio driver, or you can't play it on your system...

    Short version: Could be anything.

    I'll poke around.

    What is it when I get an error trying to play a DVD that says the copy protection failed, trying to authenticate key failed?

    I wanted to get a screen shot but couldn't as the screen locked on the message box.

    Hi Chuck,

    Whether these links will help or not, I don't know. But I'm feeling lucky... <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    See:
    Why do I receive the error message "Key exchange for DVD copy protection failed" when I try to play a DVD with RealPlayer?
    and
    Key exchange for DVD copy protection failed

    Cheers

    PS:
    I see you have a new key, the Chuck Key. I guess that key can get you in anywhere??!!
    I took away the white background if you like it this way.

    Rudi:

    I checked them both out... no luck.

    I backed up my system, and restored an image that is just the hardware (and SP-2, Leif).

    Then I ran WinUpdate to see if there were hardware updates as the one note suggested. None there.

    Wouldn't run. I installed DivX -- which had worked before on this hardware -- no luck,

    Now I am confused. I've viewed video on this machine before... same equipment.

    ???*&%$^&*???

    In the second link above, the "FIX" was to get a NEW DVD player as the one having issues was OLD.

    NOW, how old is your DVD Player/burner?
    Check with the OEM and see if it should be able to play DVD's.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    Try to download and install <img src=/S/free.gif border=0 alt=free width=30 height=15> K-Lite Codec Pack:

    http://www.free-codecs.com/download/...Codec_Pack.htm

    Use its Media Player Classic to watch your DVDs without a problem.

    The K-lite pack did the trick!

    Niot at all sure of the (possible?) adjustments, as I'm am not at all conversant with video files/formats.

    But ti worked, so not to worry.

    Thanks!

    Some codec must've gotten broken along the way...
