    Are you sure that your drive hasn't been permanently region locked and that you're using wrong region?

    If that's not the case, your disc is probably dirty, has scratches in it or something similiar.

    Special features DVD probably doesn't have region code in it, that's the thing. Download region info tool or something similiar to see if your drive is locked (RPC-2). I'm almost certain that it is the case.
