No solution. Take more care in posting and post in the Forum that is your OS Forum and maybe an Application Forum.

DVDACCSS not found

In reply to: Me, too!

I get the same message each time I restart my PC.
But everything seems to work, and there's an icon that looks like @DVD next to the clock until I clear the DVDACCSS could not be found window.
C:\windows\system32\dvdaccss.sys does exist, so why can't it be found?

DVDACCSS file could not be found

In reply to: DVDACCSS not found

HELP! I get this error message when I boot up, it prevents me from cloning DVDs using 3rd party software. I need this file reinstalled. Anybody know step by steps? I'll build a small temple on the Mall in downtown Washington DC for you . . . Thnx.

In reply to: Same issue.

In WinXP I get the following message during start up: Can't find DVDACCSS. What has gone wrong ?
I can trace the file to C:\Windows\Win32drivers\dvdaccss.sys.
Is this file necessary? May I remove the call to this file and from where is it called, and may I remove the file ilself?
Thank you for an answer.
Best regards

Tell me what's in your C:\PROGRA~1\DVDACC~1

In reply to: DVDACCSS

I need more clues. The directory C:\PROGRA~1\DVDACC~1 is the short name and I need not only the full name but what's in that directory to see what software is involved. Your post was slightly better without the typo so I could find out a little bit more.

DVDaccess is software install from DVD Live and BD Live disk

In reply to: DVDACCSS error message on XP Home

I began have the same problem after my son run a Blueray movie disk in my computer. I could not find anyway to get rid of the message. I found free software call freefixer and did a scan. It show software called DVDaccess had files missing which I knew. I selected delect/fix the files that had DVDaccess in them and run it.
No error message on boot up! Happy
