Have you had a look at MaximusDVD? It is free from MaximusDVD.com and may solve your problem.

if you are trying to play avi or other video files you will need the correct codec to play them(see click here)if you are playing normal dvds and having problems you may need to download a new driver for your dvd player, to do this you will have to find out what make it is and download the latest driver from the manufacturer(most sites will tell you how to download and instal the latest drivers)you may be able to find the make of your dvd from right clicking on the dvd drive and selecting properties
