"Another Application" preventing dvd play

  Estel 10:55 20 Sep 2004

This may be an "out of the ark" question!!

I have a 4 year old system running Win98SE. I have never tried to play a dvd on it before but I recently bought a Tori Amos cd with a dvd disc included. When i try to play it the drive does not auto-run and when I right click/play i get a message saying another application is preventing dvd play. i have tried closing down the obvious one (Norton AV; Zone alarm) with no change.

any ideas as to the problem?

Have you got a DVD ROM in your computer? If not you would need to get one and also you would need a player programme like PowerDVD to play DVDs. DVDs won't play on a CD ROM
