Hey naviverma2000. What version of Windows are you using and what software are you trying to use to watch DVDs? There's a possibility you may need to download a codec for viewing DVDs for the software that you use to watch them. Have you ever been able to watch DVDs before on this computer?

Ok, like you said, it may be a hardware problem. If it can't see the much smaller pits in the DVD, the laser could have gotten out of alignment. Some DVD recorders use two beams, one for CDs and one for DVDs and if its one of those, then it could have a laser not working properly. Its hard to tell from a distance if this is the problem.
