its because windows didnt come with dvd player abilities, but most computers have a drive

do you have a powerdvd install disc? is power dvd installed? if so use power dvd to play the disc, not windows media player

if not, download vlc player
http://www.videolan.org/vlc/

and it can play dvd's

basically its due to a missing codec, that isnt free though , when powerdvd is installed it all works fine,
and computers with dvd have this installed to make the dvd work, maybe you have reinstalled or removed powerdvd

is it a factory dvd movie or a burnt movie?

many dvd players wont play burnt movies

if a factory made dvd movie, dirty, scratched or bad disc

all you can do is try in another dvd player (might be your player) if still no joy, then the disc is a bad one

are we talking about the pc or your dvd player?

maybe that dodgy dvd is causing you problems, that your dvd player has issues with it, maybe the pc is too
