The video format from the DVD is not recognised or supported by the player you have installed.

An alternative is to install the latest Codec for Windows OS(K-Lite Codec Pack Full or K-Lite Mega Codec Pack) from


You can download the MPCStar player which play most Video/Audio format from or you can also use the VLC Player from (but need to install the codec too.)

Hope it helps.

First of all, do you have a BlueRay disc player in the computer, or just a DVD player? Also, from what I can tell, WinDVD 5 only supports DVD playback, not BlueRay. That may be why it's seeing "protected content". It just doesn't recognize the disc. If you do have a BlueRay player, you may need to upgrade to a newer version of WinDVD, or try some other software.

ok Fred did your son pass along any cd's for the machine, look in that plastic envelope he dropped on you and said you will never need them. In there is a WinDVD 5 cd install cd, slide that bad boy in and let auto start load it on the machine. If its not there tell JR to find it when he does install it or have him get his **** over to do it he took it off to put another DVD program on. And after that tell him to take you out to the web page for it and updated it because if i remember its going for about $59 bucks

Intervideo isn't your video driver, it's a program you have on your computer. To see what your video card is:
  • right-click on a blank part of the desktop
  • select Properties from the menu
  • select the Settings tab
  • you should see something like the picture below

My display (video) card is an NVidia GeForce2 as shown. What is yours?

In the SetUp or Disc menu (depends on what it is called on your remote) go in and look for Disc Edit/CD(DVD)Playback and then finalize.
Choose to finalize the disc and it will close the session so nothing further can be written to the disc, thus making it playable on other DVD players.

The Vaio / Sony combo DVD drives are renowned to be some of the worst on the market. Sony puts the cheapest cr*p in their laptop and it should be no surprise that after a couple of reads (10+) and writes (10+), your combo drive will be as good as junk... dead weight in your laptop. You'll also hear strange repetitive noises coming from it. I have 3 solutions:
1) Go to the Vaio support site, type your model number to get its page and search DVD upgrade firmware. This should 2 files. One is a .bin and the other is an executable to flash the drive with that .bin file. If the problem still persists then bad news.
2) Buy a USB2 external combo drive. This should be real cheap nowadays.
3) Check impactcomputers for a replacement internal drive. Prices have come down but still quite pricey.

Also if you can let those f*cks at Vaio know what you had to go through, that'd be great.
