I was having this error for a long time, trying to figure out.
In my search, I had found: It seems to be an issue with SP3. someone mentioned they could go in and play the .vob file but that was it.. uninstalling and reinstalling does not work changing hardware acceleration does not work.
I long since gave up on the search, even later changed my hard drive (yes even on new HD it was giving this error), but my windows media player kept giving me a copyright protection code error, and one of the fixes was to reinstall my video driver. Or install a decoder (seems to mean the only way windows media will play movies is if you have other dvd software installed - this way it can read from it).
So I: *upgraded my video driver. I have a HP Nc6000 ATI mobility radeon 32mb card. *also had bought a dvdrw drive so I put that one in *was told by windows media I had to change my region the dvd player itself was set on region 2
Retried windows media - still again got the copyright code error, decided wth Ill try loading powerdvd again AND IT STARTED
So I dont know which one of the 3 above resolved the issue for PowerDVD, and hopefully it wont come back.
Still working on windows media LOL but I know so many had issues with PowerDVD I wanted to suggest these potential fixes.
Uninstall all of the Sansa software completely, and see if Windows Media Player behaves normally. If it does not, then uninstall Windows Media Player. Reinstall Windows Media Player first. Then reinstall the Sansa software. Then and only then, plug the Sansa back into the computer. Good luck!
This could be caused by several issues - I will mention two likely possibilities. If you tell me what music service you are using, I can tell you more.
If you are getting a file format not supported error message, then the songs are in a format that the Mp3 player doesn't recognize - you can read my 2-part article in the tips & tricks section to get more info about this.
If Windows Media Player is not recognizing the player, then that would also cause the sync to fail. Unplug and replug, try again. If that fails, uninstall and reinstall the player and all software, then replug the player into the computer.
