    Hi Bessy1, and welcome to TSG.

    There is no guarantee that I will have a solution for you, but it might help someone else here to help you if you let us know the following:

    1) Brand and model number of the DVD player

    2) URL of the web site where you are purchasing the downloads. Have you been using the same site for the movies that do play and the new ones that do not play?

    3) The file format (file name extension) of the old files that do play and new files that will not play
