Hi Marios,

A DVD may not play for one or more reasons. The following is a list of possible reasons and some steps you can take to try to solve this issue:

Another DVD player application has been installed on your computer that prevents Windows Media Center from playing the DVD. Try closing or uninstalling the other DVD player application.

Your DVD drive has been disabled. Verify that your DVD-ROM drive is enabled.

Your display resolution or connection type does not support the copy protection technology that is required to play the DVD. You may need to change your display resolution to 640x480 or 720x480. Alternatively, you can change the cable connection between your display and your computer to use a DVI or VGA cable. See Connect your computer to a TV for information about the different types of cable connections.

Your DVD-ROM drive cannot play back that type of DVD. For example, some DVD-ROM drives can only read DVD+R or DVD-R discs. If you burn a video DVD to a type of recordable DVD that the DVD-ROM drive does not support, the DVD will not play back.
