DVD movies not playing but CD-ROM games and CD's do?

\015 All of a sudden DVD movies won't play or even be recognized in the drive. My husband said the only thing that he remembered doing was to answer not for the movie to play automatically when it was inserted (in the box that comes up and asks what you want to do when a disk is inserted). I don't know if this has anything to do with it or not but it used to play movies with no problem. Games and cd's seem to still work okay. Any suggestions?\015

Answers :

With the disk inserted, 1) double-click on MyComputer, 2) right-click on the DVD, and select Auto Play from the resulting menu; a window will appear, 3) click on your favorite DVD playing software and 4) check the little box below to do the same every time you insert a movie (as it used to be).
