    Yeah, what OS, laptop or desktop, what program are you trying to use.....

    If you have Windows 2000, XP or Vista, download k-lite codex and see if that works.

    Welcome to PressF1

    As the others have mentioned, a little more information is needed before we can tell you why, although in the mean time you could try playback in VideoLAN Client (It uses its own decoders etc), see if that resolves your issue

    Are you using TV out, or are you viewing the DVD on your monitor? Is everything black & white, or just your movies?
