Default Installed DVD-RW, but can't play DVD!

i just installed a DVD-RW drive and whenever i try to play a DVD in windows media player, the WMP locks up and freezes. I am able to burn dvd and CD, but i just can't play DVD. I have windows media player 10. I already set the region. What can I do now?

Before, i had a dvd player also (non rw) and same thing happens. but even before that, I was able to play DVD. I don't know what happened. Possibly sound card might be interferring? I have an ATI Raedon 9200.
