  • I have upgraded to Windows XP Professional and now Windows XP Media Center won't play DVD - component missing.

    Now I have Windows XP Professional after the upgrade to Windows XP Media Center Edition Home 2005. Now my Media Center won't play DVDs and I keep getting the error message "Missing Component". I tried to reinstll cumulative update 2 for Windows XP Media Center 2005 that has worked for me the last time I had this problem, but now I get the Error Message "you must have Windows XP Media Center 2005 installed to get this download and it shows already on my computer as installed components. When I reinstalled it 3 years ago he corrected the problem of DVD. Help, please

    Thank you for your help. Here are the answers your request:

    The windows of origin is always on display as shown above, but I received a free upgrade to Windows XP Professional CD and installed on my computer. And under 'Information system', it shows as - Microsoft Windows XP Professional 5.1.2600 Service Pack 3.

    This problem started about 10 days when I used the CD of XP Professional to correct a problem. My computer is a Dell Dimension 5100 and I have two CDs that were sent to me - Dell - Microsoft Windows XP Professional SP 3 and Microsoft Windows XP Media Center Version 2005 with update Rollup 2.

    Thanks again and I ran the "fix it" you suggested but it have no problem found to fix. Every thing works fine on my system, but Media Center won't play DVD. It will play CDs and videos on my system.

    The initial problem was that I could not download the Blackberry Desktop Software - updates needed. The computer came with Windows XP Media Center Edition Home and I use Internet Explorer 8 as my default browser. I also use Mozilla Firefox as my backup browser.

    Please stick to your thread to avoid confusion of origin:

    Note that I asked you to MOVE your original thread on the forum of material WinXP, not start a new thread.

    Also note that you don't have NO Windows XP Media Center Edition, installed now if you upgraded to Windows XP Professional.

    PS: If "winver" still says Windows XP Media Center Édition, did you not correctly upgraded & something is not. Better contact the Dell Support on this issue (if they'll still talk to you).

  • Windows Media Center won't play DVD

    Windows Media Center won't play DVD. This program has played these exact DVD in September. These DVDs can be played on other devices. Error message indicates that there is a problem with the decoder, but don't tell me the code of error message. I searched other forums, but it is impossible to find an answer to this problem, except the recommendation of a codec - although I don't know how I "lost" the codec in the month. Microsoft Security Essentials have installed and up to date, if it is not a virus. Have problems in other programs with the recognition of previously readable files. Not sure if it's related, so I'll post in separate... forums but I'll give you a link if you want to. Your help is greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    Hello cowgurlup55,

    In addition to the response of Santosh, please relay if the problem occurs when you play a DVD or a single. Please also relay if the same problem occurs when you try to play the DVD with Windows Media Player.

    In addition, if you have an extra DVD decoder installed, then try to update the DVD decoding software.

    For more information about MPEG - 2 DVD decoders, please visit the link below:

  • Windows Media Center won't play video, but Windows Media Player will be?

    I'm reading a video .avi with the xvid codec. I installed the codec earlier and it plays fine in Windows Media Player, but when I try to play in Windows Media Center, it indicates that one or more codecs are required to play this file, but they cannot be found. I know I would just watch with Windows Media Player instead of Media Center, but I want to watch it on my Media Center extension (my Xbox). I'm running Windows Vista Ultimate, 64-bit. Why does Windows Media Player with this codec and Windows Media Center not work? How can I solve this problem?


    Hi Slick05_1,

    Thanks for the replies on the forum.

    Given that the Microsoft Vista Media Center and XBOX do not play the files suggest it would need to be a codec which solves the problem or maybe file conversion which would solve the problems you are experiencing.  Since the codecs for files is not something written by Microsoft, we do not have the information for that in our system.

    What I suggest is to go to your search engine preferred and in the search line and typing "is possible to play VLC on XBOX.


    Using third-party software, including hardware drivers can cause serious problems that may prevent your computer from starting properly. Microsoft cannot guarantee that problems resulting from the use of third-party software can be solved. Software using third party is at your own risk.

    What I suggest also done an online search using your favorite search engine for "play MKV files in Vista x 64 Media Center" to find whether there may be suggestions about codecs or these codecs created by other organizations then Microsoft.

    Please let us know if you are able to get this to work for you.

    Best regards

  • Media Center won't play recorded video

    All my recordings are protected recorded video HBO on my hard drive of the PC. When I read them to my PC using Windows Media center only monitor, all play. When I use a USB to HDMI converter directly to my TV, some of them play, but some give me the error "display drive errors: video playback device does not support protected content playback. Since it is a direct connection to my TV from my PC where are stored the videos, I don't understand why this is not allowed. Is anyway to get Media center to recognize this device?

    Charles, I looked towards the top of the map that you said that you used in the first thread you

  • Xbox 360 Media Center won't play Albums

    I use my 360 as an Extender for 4 years. About 2 months back my hard drive of the PC began to fail. So I bought a new PC and recovered all my music on the new PC (old and new were running Win7 64 bit). I plugged the 360 as an Extender again. Everything (Live TV, Recorded TV, pictures, etc.) works perfectly. When I try to play music by clicking on 'Play the Album' I get an error box. "Audio error" "year Error Occurred while trying to play your selection. If I go in the album and click on any song and click on 'Play song' it works without error.

    I tried to delete an album from the hard drive and ripping again and this album plays very well when I click on "Play Album". So, the question is not network settings or firewall or proxy, etc.. I have re - rip each album, but spoke more than 300 and I'd rather not spend this time. I guess that when I copied the files on the old PC Win7 something again has been or has been marked properly. So I reset the security and ownership on the files and there was no change. Individual files will be read, but the albums are not.

    I should also mention that "Play Album" works fine on the Media Center PC.

    So, the big question is, when you click on "Play Album" 360 Media Center Extender, which looks at the system and what it takes to be able to play the album successfully?

  • Netflix in Media Center does not work anymore

    I am running Windows 7 Professional, and until yesterday had zero problems watch netflix via media center on my pc that I use as a HTPC.  I don't know what happened, but now I can watch Netflix in Media Center, or with a film from my browser to start.  It gives me the same error every time, a code error and said he had problems with signature and try closing and restarting the program.  However, he has no problem logging into my account and see my queue of the movies that he simply doesn't play anymore.  I tried to come back to Silverlight version 3 based on somehing I read elsewhere, but also reinstalled all the dependencies for Netflix and Internet TV in Media Center with no luck.  In addition, I did a system restore on the eve of problems, left with no luck.  Netflix said that this is a known Microsoft issue and they can't help with it?   I have confirmed that I can not connect and watch netflix on any other computer in my house is not my account network or netflix, only this HTPC.  Any help would be appreciated.
