Some pc DVD players will only play films from a certain region. It could also be the video codecs? Search for the all codec packs on the net as sometimes a film wont play unless its got the right codec. Also some companies dont like people to play films on their computer as they can be ripped to hard drive etc. Three answers that could the the cause of your problems, sorry i coudlan't be more help :-(

Can not read dvd movies

When you say DVD movies, are you only talking about copied DVDs? Or any DVD that isn't one that was purchased as a movie? It is probably that the drive doesn't support the blank DVDs being used, but I would think that it would work with a true movie DVD. Give that a try, also, does it work with CD-ROMs?
