Have you tried

VLC player?

If you install VLC player, keep a eye on what file extensions it wants to take over. I only let it have a few as default player.

Try making sure if your DVD and DVD drive are compatible sometimes these problems can be caused by compatibility issues.. Make sure you select the data verification with your writing software next timetoo.
