Maybe this is Window Media Center not working well. What program are you using to play the DVD's. It is just autoplay. You can turn off the autoplay for DVD's in Control Panel.

Hi teacher08,

I would recommend playing your dvds with either:

         1. CyberLink Power DVD 9
         2. Corel WinDVD 9
         3. VLC Media Player

http://www.cyberlink.com/products/movie-playback/powerdvd/overview_en_US.html
http://www.corel.com/servlet/Satellite/us/en/Product/1189528458632#versionTabview=tab2&tabview=tab0
http://www.videolan.org/vlc/

Make sure you to download the Mpeg-2 decoder codec as BigBadWolf_000 mentioned. Also, you might want to check out some other codecs as well.

Here's a link you'll might want to check out: http://www.free-codecs.com/

Hope this helps.

From the Control Panel>Display>Settings>Advanced>Troubleshooting, and drop the Hardware Acceleration down a bit...... This is assuming you have the proper software decoders installed already....

If you have the Hardware settings correct, try downloading the correct codec

the K Lite Mega Codec Pack usually has everything you will need , you can download it for free at :
