Are you sure yours is a DVD player? It could only be a CD-CD writer, which will NOT play DVDs.
Open your control panel ->system->hardware->device manager and click on the DVD/CD-ROM drives icon. The listed devices will tell you if you really have a dvd player or not. If you do really have a dvd player, try a different dvd
Not all DVD players will play rewritable DVD disks. Check for compatibility. Also, burned DVD's need to be "finalized" and the region code of the burner must match the player. Check your software docs for steps to finalize and setting your region code. If you are in the U.S. your region code is 1.
is the dvd a retail dvd, or a copied dvd?
can you play music cd's ok?
if the sound is stuttering, you may have too many other programs running. Check the systme tray amd close down all other apps and icons. most likely a problem with the laptop needing more memory to play the dvd.
also try another dvd player like vlc
or divx.com, or xvid.org for updated player codecs.
