smiler is right, windows media player does not come equipped to play dvd's. You need to get a plug in. I cannot remeber where you get it from, but you may be as well just getting some dvd playback software.
click here is a good site with lots of info and may help you decide what you need - me I watch them on my widescreen tv - much better.
