Clean your drive, if you try 20000000000000 dvds and get the same problem, common sense would tell you its the drive not the media.
And learn how to spell/type it's a good skill to have.

Please Read the forum rules.,

Iam not sure, If your DVD player played DVD's before and now it aint playing ,several reasons might be applicable.
1) Your DVD laser wud have become weak, so its time to clean/replace your DVD ROM
2) Drivers might be corrupted , try to reinstall the drivers for your DVD ROM
[ Update your Firmware .]
3) Some DVD's work only when the 'region' is set.You can set the regions for DVD in the 'device manger' under 'DVD-ROMS...'

p.s: Try to get power DVD player to play DVD's.
