have you tried it in a normal dvd player (under the TV type)?

Does your drive play other original dvd's fine?

You could try explaining the problem properly, frankie, there's no hurry so typing in pigeon English is not necessary.

Do you have any DVD software installed, something like WinDVD or PowerDVD?

  frankie 00:00 28 Nov 05

yes home dvd plays it fine no prob thanks for help

Also give the disk a wipe.

Good luck

Have you changed the region of the drive?

my computer, right click the drive and choose properties.

No matter, frankie, it wont play if you don't have any DVD software installed, XP doesn't come with a DVD decoder, you need to install one to watch DVDs.

have not changed drive as mine was always region 2.this just says english dts universal its from asda cant be a copy surely for £6

It won't be. Have you got powerdvd, nero showtime or other software to try?

I have no more ideas for you sorry.

Try downloading this player, it's good
