Default Re: DVD player no longer works!!!

Well, no... I'm not a "stick in the mud", and while I appreciate your willingness to help, your attitude seems to be a little less favorable...

The model is a Hauppauge WinTV HVR 1600 MCE. I've tried 2 DVD's so far. Star Wars Episode III, and "The Matrix: Reloaded" I get the same message on both of them. I'll give it to ya'll verbatim

Media Center:

"Cannot Play DVD

The DVD may be in use by another application. If all other applications are close, the display resolution may need to be lowered or the display connection type may not support playback of the DVD. For more information, please go to help."

For Windows Media Player

"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."

I've installed a trial version of PowerDVD, and the DVD works on it. Why would this be??? If either message above was right, this program should have failed too... but it didn't.

Any ideas?

EDIT: BTW, the CyberLink PowerDVD is just a trial. This is not a solution.
