Commercial DVD's or home made? What decoder (playback) program?

It would seem to be a software problem. I recommend contacting the seller.

There seems to be alot of threads on here lately about probs with playing dvds on pc,s and laptops.Not sure if there is some form of encryption on these discs now to stop you playing them on pc,so to stop individuals attempting to copy them.

I have no problems playing all types of DVDs on my system whether using WMP10, PowerDVD, Nero ShowTime etc.

In WMP, from Tools>Options>File Types is DVD Enabled?
