I know this is an old message I'm replying to. But you and others may
find this useful...

Something else you can try is to use the DVD burner to make an ISO image
of the DVD, and save it on your hard drive. Then, download and install
Alcohol 120%. This will let you mount the ISO image as if it was an
actual physical DVD in a DVD drive, and you should be able to play it
that way with any media player that can play real DVDs.
