Just download FFDShow and VLC MEDIA PLAYER.
Its extremely rare with this combination, to find a movie that wouldn't play,
get FFDShow here http://www.free-codecs.com/download_soft.php?d=5550&s=50
with ffdshow all you need to do is to run the setup file and click next repeatedly untill the setup is complete, and then just finish it, close it and its done, works on the background when movies are played.
vlc media player - http://www.videolan.org/vlc/
After you got these two installed, you should be able to play most if not all of the movies out there.
open vlc media player and then click File, dvd movie.

Is there any codec pack installed on your computer? or do you have any fully packed multimedia player installed? like VLC Player or Gom Player....
First download and install the [K-lite mega codec pack], you may be prompted to configure the settings, just ignore and finish the installation, after it's completed, restart your computer and play the DVD again. Hopefully that should work.
If this doesn't fix, download VLC Media Player and install it, play the DVD with the VLC player and try again. (click here to download VLC player).
Let me know if the problem persists. We need to clean the registry entries.
Thanks for using FixYa.
