Problem playing DVD's on HP XE3 notebook

I'm having issues with playing DVD's on my HP XE3-gf notebook. I'm getting error messages from three different player programs that tell me the "the video stream cound not be initialized". Any help would be greatly appreciated...the frustration level has peaked.

Thanks, Miley

Miley, did this problem occur after you recovered from a crash and rebooted?
