Try VLC PLAYER but next time tell what player software you are using. Windows for example does not come with a player to play protected content.

Also, if these DVDs are region coded, and your drive is set to a different region, they will not play.

Another thing to note is that a DVD drive cannot play bluray discs unless it specifically says it supports bluray.
