I'm not trying to be a smartass, but did you install the dvd correctly? The IDE cables correctly plugin, Master or Slave set, used the correct IDE interface?

Does this happen with every movie you try to play or just one. If this happen with every dvd, try to replace your IDE cable with a known working one.

Do you know the model of this Sony DVD drive? You could google for a firmware update or driver update.

If you don't want to open the case up to locate the model, you can go into device manager, locate you dvd drive and click on it's properties. In the general tab there should be it's name with some other information following it. Type it into google and search.
