    I assume this is on your PC and not a standalone DVD player...
    Did it give you the "DVD Protected" on screen or is that on the box?
    Almost sounds like it has installed its own drivers / filters or something tbh...

    sounds like a DRM issue, is it a retail DVD?

    yeh this is my dvd-rw on my pc

    yes its the retail version of War of The Worlds....

    it shows the Logo "These DVDS are copy protected on the back of the box- i reckon it should be made bigger tbh...

    my dvd-rw drive is a Sony DVDRW DW-D23A

    Would it help if i did a reinstall of everything? -i was planning to do this at the weekend due to XP being dodgy an such...

    Plus i havent done a reinstall for about 9 months now...

    Update
    ---------

    i've just checked the Event Viewer for the time and found this below

    An error was detected on device \Device\CdRom1 during a paging operation.
