Sony D22A wont play commercial DvD's since SP2/WM11 upgrade

Ok I’ve been browsing forums for hours trying to find this problem with no luck. Purchased/rental dvds (Newer ones) are not playing on my Sony D22a. I tried upgrading the firmware to bys3, still a no go. I found out it will load data Dvds (4.7g burned via nero) no problem, and it will load some of my older movies (Red Dawn for example). But any higher production movie or rental will not load. The dvd drive is showing up as it is supposed to and running at ultra dma 2.

This only started happening after I finally upgraded to sp2 about a month ago; while I was at it I upgraded to WMP11 and IE7. Anyone know any fixes for this? I was going to buy a new dvd burner until I realized it still reads data/old movie dvds.

Uninstall the drive & drivers in devicemanager, then restart.

Also use mpclassic and vlc.

Did all that previously, also did it again just to make sure right now. Problem is, the disc wont show up even in My computer>DvD Drive. When I put Red Dawn in (one of the few movies that work). It shows up and i can play it fine in WMClassic. If I try to play it in WMP11 It has an error message shortly after the root menu. The other newer movies show up as blank/no discs. My backed up avi’s and data files on dvd also show up.

I thought it might have to do with newer movies being recorded on dual layer dvds or something and maybe my reader encountered an error being able to read these since the SP2 upgrade.

The explorer is borked.

I personally give a darn about exploder, DirectoryOpus is the way!

It could be a filter issue. What filters are shown for the device using devfilter.exe?

Just delete them, see my sig. :wink:

I would definitely remove GEARAspiWDM and Iviaspi.

Might as well get rid of PxHelp20 while you’re there too, unless you need it for a Roxio/Sonic product to function correctly. Personally, I have never had PxHelp20 cause problems.
