Windows Media Player 11 stopped playing DVDs

I just did a clean Windows XP Home install last week. To get the
proper codecs I installed interVideo Home Theater, then WMP 11 played
movies just fine. Since then I have installed Nero 8, DVD Fab 5 and
Real Player 10 plus. Now WMP 11 won't play an original movie, but it
will play a move that has been copied. Home Theater (from interVideo)
will play either DVD, so that tells me that there is something wrong
with WMP 11. I took Microsoft's suggestion and upgraded the video
driver, still no play. I like WMP 11, but would like it more if it
played (original) DVDs again. Since I know it played with the codecs
installed with interVideo, I don't need to chance loading more codecs.
Please help.

Thanks Dan. I'd rather use interVideo Home Theater than WMP11 and
risk loading more codecs. Is it possible that a codec would be
required for WMP11 but not Home Theater? WMP is an integral part of
Windows (why did Microsoft do this again with an application?) and I'm
thinking the issue may be between these two inseparable "systems."

I was using PowerDVD and it played DVDs fine, but WMP wouldn't play sound on
them. I used K-LITE and now they BOTH play movies. I don't know why that
happens though. Again, that's just my experience.
