Unable to play DVD with WM player

Hi all, I've just bought a replacement external DVD drive, an LG GE20NU11 USB Device but it won't play any DVD's. I've gone into 'properties' for the drive and it says it's set for region 2, my other DVD drive in my tower works perfectly, have I forgotten to do something or is there something else I should do? W indows Media player puts up the following dialogue box.
' Windows Media player cannot playthis DVD because there is a problem with digital copy protection between your DVD drive, decorder and video card. Try installing an updated driver for your video card'.
Surely the video card driver is OK if the other drive plays OK? I'm running Vista home premium. P.

Have now sorted, misread the procedure for setting the region. P.
