    I don't seem to be able to play DVD's on my Dimension 9200. MY OS is WinXP
    Media Centre Edition 2002/2005

    Various thing happen when Cine Player opens; on a dvd I recorded myself
    pictures play but no sound, on a bought dvd I get copyright warnings & it
    doesn't play; on another bought dvd nothing happens at all.

    Windows Media Player behaves similarly when I try to play the dvd I recorded
    myself in that I have pictures but no sound.

    Windows media player won't even attempt to play the bought dvd's claiming
    copyright infringement. I'm not trying to copy the dvd's just play them.

    Any ideas please?

    Dell has a patch for that exact problem.

    Have you downloaded and applied the Cineplayer patch from Dell? There
    is a problem with Cineplayer that didn't show up until a date in early

    The free VideoLAN - VLC media player is quite good for playing DVDs.
    Windows Media Player Classic (free - Source Forge) is also very good.

    I have sound! The patch worked; thanks for the pointer.

    Thanks. However I've installed the Dell Patch & it all works perfectly so I
    won't be needing VLC after all.
