What type of movie DVD's are you using? Downloaded from web or what? Also what player are you using to play the movies in? Did you happen to apply any newer codecs for movie play back? There all kinds of issues this could be. Please post a few more details in the problem and what is actually happening when trying to play a movie.
P.S. Could we please move this to the Media section of the forum? Seems we could get a little more input there since this is media related issue. Thanks
