laptop DVD rom only reads some dvd's

My Dell laptop has an LG DRN 8080b DVD-ROM in it. It will read cd's no bother,but will only read certain commercial DVD's .. The ones i've tried are Region2 and the drive is set up for Region2.. e.g for my sins I tried a Rab C Nesbitt dvd in it and it played no bother.. I tried another Rab C. (made by the same people ) and it just dont play at all .I am using Power DVD but it wont play using that OR Windows Media player 10 ... any thoughts out there ??

Contact Dell, this sounds like a pure hardware fault. P.s. Do not contact them by email for a problem such as is, ring them.
