DVD wont play in Windows media player
when i try to play a video in windows media player i get this.

Windows Media Player cannot play DVD video. You might need to adjust your Windows display settings. Open display settings in Control Panel, and then try lowering your screen resolution and color quality settings.

i did everything it said but i still get the error.

Do you have any DVD software installed (WinDVD, PowerDVD, etc). XP does not support DVD Video out of the box.
