    Almost sounds like a PAL vs.NTSC thing.

    Are you NTSC? Do the DVD's play right on the computer? You player software should show somewhere (Options-> Information) what the resolution is. For NTSC it should say 720x480. If it says x576 it's PAL. Some folks players can handle PAL, ones that can't will show a no color pic.

    If they play fine on your sister's DVD player and your player is about 5 years old then I'm willing to bet that it's a problem with your player and not with you DVDs. You can get a new player that will play pretty much anything pretty cheap--just make sure that you read what the player is compatible i.e. DVD-R etc.
