WMC, Vista, Ripped DVDs not playing

Discussion in 'Windows Media Center' started by Michael Byrnes, Feb 15, 2010.

  1. Vista home premium, Media Center...

    I have a few dozen DVDs that I have ripped to an external hard drive... but
    Media Center errors out when I try to play them... but does indeed play
    ripped DVDs if they are located on the primary hard drive...

    .... obviously have done the regedit hack to "ShowGallery" to Gallery, etc...
    and all DVDs are ripped region free...

    Is this a bug in Media Center not able to play DVD media on external drives
    (i have several AVIs on external drive which Media Center does indeed play)?
    Or is there another tweak that can be done?

    The DVD DRM rules prohibit the transfer of DVD drive content over a network
    so this is probably why MC MC will not bp
