Your dvd player has left audio output . this should be white. aso it has a right audio output this should be red ,both of these are called rca females . note you have to have a cabel with two rca mails and a 1/8 inch stereo mail on the other end. this 1/8 inch plug will go in to your computer input . the other two rca will plug in two your your dvd player and thats that. this will work for you i am a electronics technition . good luck and enjoy your movies

if you burn this dvd by yourself then there must be problem with the X speed of your DVD ROM drive.Most of DVD rom drives does not play dvds scratched and old dvds.Lens of your dvd rom may be faulty.If DVD is new and its condition is better then there must be problem in your PC.Proper dvd player is not installed in your pc.I would recommend KM player or K-lite media codec pack.You can easily get them on google or at www.download.cnet.com/
Get an adaptor, you don't say what model of monitor you have so I can't be more specific, You will probably also need speakers from the DVD player to get sound and an amplifier and the correct leads. But why bother? if you want to watch DVDs on your monitor then play them on your computer.
Are you trying to playing recordable DVDs (DVD+R or DVD-R) ? if so, try playing original DVDs (the type you rent or buy) those are pressed DVDs - if it works, then your player does not support DVD-R or DVD+R - If you are using a computer burner that supports bitsetting you can change the booktype of a DVD+R to DVD-ROM to fool your player.
If however your player cannot play either DVD-R, DVD+R nor original DVDs and only plays CDs, then your dvd laser diode is finished - there is one for CD and one for DVD, this is rare but happens, there is nothing you can do, any repairs would be very expensive - you are better off getting a new DVD player they are very inexpensive now and any repairs will cost you multiple times a new DVD player.
from this am not able to know which model is in uer hand almost all dvd players have a facility to change the region code, u can change uer region code from 2 to zero surely all the dvds play in that player,
Sounds like you have conflicting file associations, which means that some types of files open in one player and others in another. However, this isn't your main problem.
To play the DVD file on the pc you need to have the .ifo, .vob and the .bup files in the same directory as well as the video_ts files etc. Easiest way to do it is to copy ALL of the files from each disk to a folder on the pc, then you can play them from there and format your disks ready to be re-used.
If you'd like further help with converting the format and sorting out your file associations please post again but the above information should cure your immediate problem.
Windows XP does not come with the proper software to play DVDs. All major brands of pcs come with a piece of software called a DVD decoder. Once the DVD decoder is installed windows media player can play DVDs again. This software will be on your application recovery disks from your manufacturer. If you do not have these disks you can purchase them from the company who built your PC or you can purchase a DVD decoder software such as the ones found here. If you don't want to purchase one you can try a different program such as the VLC Media player to play your DVDs. VLC is a free download.
