Default DVD will not play in sonic or nero

I just got a new computer. I tried to play a DVD using Sonic and Nero 7, but I get an error message saying "cannot initialize video stream." However, the DVD's will play using Windows media player.

I loaded the same sonic and nero on another computer and they work fine. Any suggestions on how to fix this?

Thanks for any assistance you can provide.

Use PowerDVD. It's the only one I use now bc it's the only one that always works.

Try InterActual DVD Player. Its free, and works the same as PowerDVD.

Thanks for the recommendations, but I was hoping that there was some setting that I could change that would allow nero and sonic to work. I am rather fond of nero.
