DVD Conversion

Hi Guys
I posted a question 3 months ago regarding DVD conversion from a DVD produced on a Macbook and got no response, well if it means anything I have more info on its production. It was produced using Imovie HD6 on a Macbook. Does anyone have any ideas how I can get it to play on my Win PC runnng XP Home SP3. As it is now the disc is not recognised in either of my 2 PC's or my laptop. It plays fine on my TV.

as far as i'm aware windows doesn't play DVDs natively. Licensing restrictions
Download VLC media player and "open disc" from that. That plays anything!

Tried downloading VLC, fair do's it tried and tried to run the video but no luck. I have thought of something, play it on my TV and video it. I tried a couple of minutes and it played back ok on my video camera.
