    Vista 32 bit Business
    New Build
    ASUS M2N - E motherboard
    AMD AM2, 64 bit 4600+ CPU
    2 x 1024 MB ram, 667 MHZ
    XFX GeForce 8600GTS graphics card
    Plextor DVD burners

    When I tried to play a commercial DVD, Rocio Easy Media Creator 9's
    CinePlayer popped up & played the DVD.

    I closed CinePlayer & tried to use WMP11, but was informed that I should
    change my dispaly settings to a lower quality, which I did.

    WMP 11
    tools > options > DVD
    "advanced" is greyed out.

    I uninstalled Roxio 9, to include CinePlayer.
    Now, the "advanced" button is active, indicating that the codec, CineMaster
    Audio decoder ver 4.1, is installed [ I think that is the indication ] but
    still no success.

    If I need to install a codec, or a codec pack, do I need to uninstall the
    Roxio Codec? If so how?

    I would like to have Roxio installed AND be able to play DVDs using WMP.

    I can view some [ all that I have tried ] web based videos & hear the audio,
    using WMP 11.

    Thanks for your help.

    Business doesn't include an MPEG2/DVD decoder, but you can use third party
    decoders. So you're saying this worked previous to Roxio being installed?
    You could set their MPEG2 filter merit to Unlikely or Do_Not_Use using a
    filter management tool...

    This is fairly advanced but can be done.

    Dear Zach:
    Thanks for the reply.

    I have seen some of your replies in other thread when I researched my issue,
    and I have seen the page you referenced.

    No, WMP 11 was unable to play DVDs before CinePlayer was installed.

    I am not opposed to upgrading to Vista Ultimate. I am not opposed to
    purchasing Codecs.

    Do I need to uninstall the CinePlayer Audio codec before installing a Codec
    pack? If so, how do I uninstall the CinePlayer audio codec?

    Thanks for your help.
