    I bought stargate special edition from walmart.

    I tried to play it in my laptop (toshiba) (vista)
    My computer wouldn't read it.
    Any suggestions?

    Take it back to Walmart and ask for either a replacement or your money back.

    yah for some reason vista don't like dvd's, powerdvd will play dvd's on a vista system, also vlc player will also play the disks. with vlc player make sure that you have the latest version vista, here is the link http://www.videolan.org/vlc/download-windows.html

    Uh I would back it up but It won't even load on my laptop so getting a new player won't help me at all.

    But thanks for your input.

    Also this is the 1999 version of stargate special edotion DVD.
    Its just strange it plays on my PS2 and DVD player but not my computer I am going to try it on anothrer computer and see what happens.

    anydvd or dvdfab decrypter both will remove the copy protection from the store bought stargate dvd so its possible using either one of the thoses programs that your drive may be able to read it. i would try anydvd theres a free 21 day trial download it here
