I keep getting the message,
"Another application is preventing DVD Playback".
When trying to play DVDs.
Please can you help.

Seems to need the display set for 16bit colour:

Change the number of colors in the Display Panel properties to 16-bit color as follows.

1. From the Start menu, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel.

2. In Control Panel, double-click the Display icon.

3. In the Display Properties dialog box, click the Settings tab.

4. In the Color Palette drop-down list, change the number of colors to 16-bit Color and then click OK. The computer must be restarted.

The DVD should play normally.
