Error: DISPLAY ENVIRONMENT DOES NOT SUPPORT PROTECTED CONTENT PLAYBACK
Dec 20, 2009
i have a sony vaio cw series..has blu-ray built in to it..i put in a blu-ray disc and opened up windvd (which is the only program it's telling me i can open it with) to play it and it's giving me this error---STOP, YOUR DISPLAY ENVIRONMENT DOES NOT SUPPORT PROTECTED CONTENT PLAYBACK.
now this is the new transformers blu-ray which plays fine on a regular blu-ray player...i have my laptob hooked up to my tv through hdmi if that makes any difference..anyone have any ideas??
I upgraded my husbands computer from Windows Vista to Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit. Did a full backup under Vista to an external drive, and also used Easy Transfer. Wanted to do a clean install and format the hard drive due to past computer problems. All went fine until I used easy transfer to put the ''old''files back onto the computer after the new Win 7 install. I'm getting a ''protected content migration'' error,asking for a password. My husband did not have a password on the old user account,but just to be sure we have tried every password that we have used. No luck with any of them. How do I know what it is that we no longer have access to? Is there anyway for me to recover access to these files that are supposedly password protected? Should I do anything as drastic as just doing a full restore back to Windows Vista from the backup copy and change anything and then start over?
My family and I have accumulated a rather large library of DVD/BD movies that we like to watch repeatedly from time to time. In order to avoid searching for and handling the original disks each time, I have been ripping the content, preserving menus,chapters, and the audio and subtitle streams for our preferred language, along with the main video title.i chose to transcode the video using h.264 format, and AC3 audio, storing those and the subtitle stream in an MKV wrapper, because that format is reasonably well supported by the WDTV Live Plus player I have been using. However, I have found many shortcomings of that player to be frustrating to me. My frustration is caused mostly by these factors:
- Browsing screen by screen, with only textual titles when deciding what movie to watch next is not pleasing.
- If I want to jump into a particular movie chapter, again there is only text (minutes/seconds) to help me find the chapter I want, as opposed to artwork such as one would have when viewing the original disk using a DVD/BD player.
- Inability to pause, and advance frame by frame, as I would be able to if playing the original media.
- The WDTV Live Plus sometimes alters the appearance of the subtitles compared with the original media, and sometimes to the extent that they are unreadable.
Thinking that I might be able to improve on shortcomings like these, I embarked on a project to build my first HTPC, which I have now done. I am happy with the system from a hardware perspective. I installed Windows 7 Professional x64, and am poised to begin using Media Center for the first time. It is my hope that I can use the MKV files I have spent many hours creating, but if some other format proves more appropriate, I will start over, but using my new system, it will not take nearly so many hours the next time.I would eventually like to retire my two Tivo boxes, so I expect I will install a tuner card such as the Ceton InfiniTV4 that accommodates a multi-stream cable card, but one Tivo function we use occasionally (and would like to retain) is the ability to download Amazon video on demand for later viewing. Is this possible with Media Center, and could I stop viewing from the family room in the middle of a movie, and continue watching on the bedroom extender?
I recorded premium channel movies on a Dell Inspiron n5110 laptop. I used a SiliconDust HD Home Rum CableCard tuner. The movies play fine on the laptop screen. When I plug in into the TV via it's HDMI port, it does not play back the premium channels recordings. This is the message. "Display Driver Error - The video playback device does not support playback of protected content."
I have been all over the internet and through the tutorials. I have searched Windows Help and I can't seem to find the answer. To be fair I am an XP user and am completely sold on Seven albut for this one problem.
I am searching for very specific strings that are contained in multiple XLS files in a single subdirectory. I know that these strings exist in a Text field in all of these files. Windows search doesn't seem to have an advanced search screen and it always fails to find any numbers. As a matter of fact it shows no hits at all.
Confirmed by Mr. Sinofsky himself, there will be no native BluRay support in Windows 7. However, BluRay Drive makers and OEMs will be able to extend Windows Media Center to support playback. What will be supported in Windows 7 though, is the burning of BRD discs.
Here’s the email that was forwarded to me from our loyal reader Theodore. I did make a WHOIS check to make sure that it was Sinofsky himself. Location was indeed from: United States Redmond Microsoft Corp.
I got a NVIDIA GeForce GT 540M grafical card in my notebook. However, most of the time I use the Intel integrated graphics (Ci7-2670QM processor). All NVIDIA drivers and NVIDIA applications are installed too.When I double-click any 3D picture file (*.jps file), the NVIDIA 3D Vision Photo Viewer is then called;however, the app doesn't seem to find the display adapter of nvidia and generates an error:"primary display's adapter does not support nvidia 3d vision".I tried to fix the problem using the NVIDIA's Control Panel by setting the gt540m as the preferred gpu, and rebooting the computer a few times, but it does not the error keeps on popping up. I've also associated the gt540m as the preferred gpu specifically for the /NVIDIA 3D Vision Photo Viewer/ app, but also that doest even after a few reboots.I read somewhere one should install the NVIDIA Optimus app but I prefer to solve the problem manually and not let the problem be solved in a hidden way by some other app---Optimus in this case
I got myself a new blu-ray, and popped it into my external bd player and it was playing nicely. But when I got to the middle, I paused it and left for a few, came back, and now it stated there was a problem. I got a warning stating that my CyberLink PowerDVD "cannot play back the protected content - (Code - 0122)" and to try either 1) make sure the graphics card driver meets the requirments, or 2) do not use dual monitors. I don't have two monitors, and I thought my graphics card was fine, no problems. Also, I ran its BD advisor tool, and there were all okays except for two: graphics card driver: 220.127.116.112, and HDCP-compliant display: no.I have no idea what's going on, and everything was fine until this showed up. My graphics is an Intel graphics media accelerator driver, and I recently checked its properties: single display, color quality 32-bit, 1080 resolution, refresh rate 60 hetz, color correction is all, and hot keys enabled. Don't know what to look for, and everything seems fine.
I can't open a specific folder to display the content with Explorer.I'm running Windows 7 7601.win7sp1_gdr.120830-0333 Home Premium. The folder is on a secondary HDD where I also have the system folders Libraries and Download. All the system and program files are on my primary SSD C: drive.What doesn't work:With my regular account, on that specific folder, I can't display the content via Explorer. I can't either get it when I try to open it from inside applications such as Notepad++, PotPlayer, Media Player Classic, VirtualDub. What works:If I enter the name of a file in the File name field of the Open command of the application, the file will open normally.When I point to that folder with the Windows command line console, and use the DIR command, it will display the complete list of files.Finally, when I look at the folder from the Admin account or from a Guest account, Explorer will display the content.instantaneously.
Things I did:I have checked Show hidden files in Folder Options.I did a Check Disk, which didn't find any error.I also ran: ATTRIB -s -h mbrp /s /d (Where mbrp contains the directory causing problem) hoping that somehow, some System Attributes could be removed.FWIW, it seems this happened as I was trying to run an Avisynth64 script with new installation of MPC-HC64.A this point, I am out of ideas. I know that switching to a new regular user account would solve the problem, but I see that as a last resort.
My operating system is windows 7 and my problem is with the http.I used to have just plan HTTP but i click a button that said yes I want a secure connection and ever since then I have had nothing but problems. Every time I go to Facebook or Yahoo and click on an app I get an error message that says. Switch to regular connection (http)?We can't display this content while you're viewing Facebook over a secure connection (https). Would you like to temporarily switch to a regular connection (http) to use this app?You will have a secure connection upon your next login.How do i change it back to a regular connection
When I start Windows 7 about 30 seconds after the login, I see an error message popping up that says: "Failed to initial environment". In the task bar I see the an icon that writes MFC, which is the program that gives the error message. I looked in my task manager under processes if I see MFC, but there is nothing like this. I am using Windows 7 64 bit.Does anyone have an idea what that would be?Here are 3 screen shots, which show the error and all processes running in my task manager.

I am running Windows 7 64 bit and Office 2007 and one day I get the error "Outlook could not create the work file check the temp environment". The error itself was of no help but after searching and searching I found supposed "fixes". I have tried a number of them but then I shut down the computer for the day and the next day the error is back.I will email you a beer or something.I have tried:Deleting all files in the temporary folders since one "fix" noted a full folderChecking the HKEY in regedit.exe and all was well with %userprofile%local settingemporary internet files so the suggestion was to change to "temp" instead of temporary internet files.I went into Internet Explorer tools and moved the folder per another "fix"I went to regedit and changed CACHE value to c:wi
Is there somewhere similar to this where I can get help with Windows Server 2011? All I'm trying to do is add Google as a search provider in IE8, and I'm hitting rafts of problems, and not getting even remotely close to success. I go: Tools -> Internet Options -> Change search defaults Settings -> Find more search providers, I get a new IE8 window with a "Content is being blocked" (Url) (and then several others). I don't have a clue what to do about this, so I just close the window. Eventually, I get a webpage that mentions Google with an "Add to Internet Explorer". I click that button, but all I get is "! Error on page"
I have recently begun using Windows 7. Previously I was using Vista Home Premium.
I have a Belkin Bluetooth adapter F8T016 and used to stream music to a bluetooth speaker.
Since installing Windows 7 I cannot stream the music. Initially my Broadcom driver would not connect to the speaker. I therefore installed the Anycom Bluetooth USB2 Vista driver as suggested in this thread:
Belkin F8T016 Mini-USB Bluetooth Dongle
Now my laptop and speaker connect properly (I can see it is connected in the bluetooth property settings and physically through the 'connected' LED on the speaker.
My problem now is that the device will not playback sound. When I try to perform the 'test' in the audio device properties I get the message "Error: Cannot perform test sound".
My comp is having some audio problems. Windows 7 ultimate 32 bit. It says i have no audio playback device installed? One or more audio service isn't running? Both the windows audio and the windows audio end point builder services must be running for audio to work correctly. At least one of these services isn't running? It says I dont have a playback device installed?
No devices displayed when I open playback devices.? How do I get a device or install a driver to fix the problem. In services both windows audio and windows audio endpoint aren't started. When I turn on windows audio i get error 1068: the dependency service or group failed to start. When I turn on windows audio endpoint builder I get error 1084: this service cannot be started in safe mode sound doesn't work no audio at all. I don't have a restore point. I can only boot up in safe mode with networking.
After composing a fax in Word 2003 and selecting "fax" in printing options the fax composing screen comes up where I enter the fax phone number and choose cover page. After completing the information and I click "send" I get the message:"fax error: the message could not be sent. the media is write protected". I have checked the files and they do not show write protection.I have 2 identical Toshiba Satellite L455's- the only difference is that this one is 64bit and the other is 32bit.On the 32bit machine, using Word 2003, I am able to send the fax created on the 64bit machine without getting the error message.How do I correct the incorrect write protection message?
I am trying to run a certain program and it worked previously for a few days, and then today all of the sudden its giving me this error.Is this a windows thing I can try and fix? Or is it program specific (this program doesnt have much support unfortunately)

whenever i'm watching Internet for an extended period of time everything freezes and then a quick blackout occurs and a message is displayed stating that the windows vista display driver has crashed and recovered. i have windows 7. is this some kind of compatibility issue? i do not have a graphics card or video card, everything is done on the motherboard. the mb is supposed to run 7 well. and after a blackout, i get many more blackouts that are uncontrolable and then i recieve a blue screen and my computer restarts. what do i do?
My video files would be displayed as film frames with the logo of my default media player (in this case, VLC) in the corner of the frame. My .mp4 files are still displayed this way. About a week ago, however, my .avi files started appearing only as the media player logo. Is there a way to get the file display to go back to the way it was? I make and edit videos and having to read the title of each file is really slowing down my work.
I use XCOPY to automatically backup my files.I use the following switches:/C - Ignore errors/Q - Copy quietI would like to see a report of any error XCOPY encounters while copying, but I have not been able to figure out how to do this.Does anyone know if there is a way to make XCOPY provide error detail even while using above switches?
The computer is Windows 7 Professional 64-bit edition version 6.1 Build 7601 service pack 1. The computer is not in a domain environment. I believe this may be a security issue however I completed an in-place windows 7 upgrade to try and fix the problem but after all of the windows updates, etc the error remains and appears every time the computer is rebooted..[code] The relevant status code says that the "Object already exists" which I think is far more relevant then some memory issue. Do I have to delete some file or registry entry? Or is it a security issue?
Basically my question is, what's the best way of running a 4/6 screen windows 7 environment?
The detailed question is:-
I've just got a Dell XPS 8000 with a Nvidia GT 220 in it.
I'd like to run at least 4 19 inch screens. On my previous system (XP Pro 64 bit) I added a second PCI graphics card, which allowed me to run the 4 screens.
It's not for gaming, it's for developing, so I just need a lot of desktop real estate, more than 3D rendering power.
(Btw, I went for win 7 pro, due to the XP Pro Virtual machine, allowing me to run the 32bit cisco VPN client I need, in a 64 bit environment).
I installed the old PCI card I had a Nvidia GeForce FX 5200, but this seems to cause an issue with the GT220 card and the device manager reports it's stopped working (error code 43. I've googled it, seems a pretty generic error code, from what I can tell I think it's installing xddm drivers, which is the problem with wddm driver needed). I remove the card it BSOD's windows is unable to repair it, and I have to go back to a system restore point.
I see I have 2 spare PCIe x1 slots and a PCI slot on my motherboard.
Ideas I've toyed with are
1. Buy a PCIe x1 graphics card, possibly a quad card(but which one, nvidia or non nvidia)
2. Buy another PCI Graphics card,possibly a quad card( again which one? )
3. Can I spilt the HDMI and DVI outputs to give me 4 screens of 1280x1024. (or even 3 screens)
4. Scrap the GT 220, buy a PCI x16 card, then get another dual PCIe x1 card.(going to be very expensive I think).
how to get into recovery environment upon booting up .I'm facing a boot mbr problem when installing a new os on a hd on a removable hdisk drawer. i were told to write new boot procedure at recovery console prompt but i do not know how to get into recovery environment on bootup.
Since I update my nvidia graphic card driver to the last ver 296.10 i got a BSOD 0X0000007e, every time I turn my screen on (I don't have sleep mode or hibernate mode or screensaver active). As long as I using the computer everything fine, but if I don't using the computer for several hours and move the mouse to turn on the display I get this error.
I try to download some hotfix from microsoft that related to this issue but it say in every try: this hotfix don't match to your computer. KB Article Number(s): 979538 KB Article Number(s): 983615
