First, are the region settings correct? Go into the device properties, and check.

DVD's have a security feature that checks the player to where the disc was licensed to be sold (Like here in the states, can only be played in the states) so that I can't go buy cheap DVD's in Batang, and sell them here.

If it's not right, change it. But be careful, it can only be changed a few times. Try that, and if it don't work, we'll try something else.

No, I use power dvd, like I say I have a old dvd disc from pc gamer and on one side it has demos and on the other dvd films (of the team and trailers) the only problem is with copyrighted DVDs it just scans them for a bit then spits them out
