It seems that your drive is not working properly. when reading the laser moves toward the outer edges of the disk. Your problem is most likely mechanical in nature. the gears inside your dvd disk drive might be dirty or worn.

I had the same problem with certain .avi files. I did a lot of research and found a program called "FourCC Changer". You can google it and download it for free. Open the file that doesn't work and change the "fourcc" to "xvid". Once I did that, the .avi files played without a problem. I hope this works for you. Good luck!
If it can play in a DVD format it should play fine in your DVD player, What country code is the DVD?? what country code is your DVD player??? they have to match... if it's in a AVI format than forget the project... DVD players DO NOT PLAY AVI (welcome to the Micro$$$oft world) you need a Windoze PC to play it...
Convert video to .avi or DVD (Audio TS- Video VS) format.
Many common dvd players can play .avi files
(.avi files are very compact).
All dvd players play TS/VS format.
AVS4U is a reasonably priced (approx $50)downloadable suite of programs that can perform all the conversion tasks you need for audio & video.
My friend suggested I clean the dvd optical reader lens inside the player with a fine brush (like a camera brush with a blower bulb). This seemed to help immensely. I'm not certain if this is just a temporary fix, but it seems to be ok so far.
AVI are a certain type of movie file.
Your problem is most likely that you do not, have the correct software ( program ) installed on your computer to view these files, yet i believe do play on a normal DVD Player.
you could try Windows Media player, this may work for you. also power DVD or Similar. although there are newer programs out there. as for the conversion, this is a long winded process in itself. To convert AVI To MPEG ( standard DVD Format ) you need unpacking tools and software, And a relatively high spec PC, Lots Of Memory.
Hope this guides you.
