    Try a different reader if you have one and perhaps turning off AnyDVD or DVD43 if they are running in the background....

    What program are you using to play disk. Im assuming windows media player is giving you this error. If that's the case I would use windvd or powerdvd. I have had nothing but trouble trying to play dvd's in Windblows media player.

    Good Luck.

    I would dump the windblows media player for dvd playback. Even when it does work it does not compare to Windvd which is my favorite dvd player. Matter of fact windvd will play any thing you throw at it. I also like powerdvd for second choice .

    Good Luck
