DVD won't play


I just got a dvd drive today, so I thought it would be neat to test it and see how it played...

So, I stuck the dvd in the drive, and it popped up on the desktop. So far so good.

But when the movie player opened it said I didn't have the correct plugins installed and crashed.

What do I need to have installed for DVD playback?

Okay, for the next conundrum...

I can watch a dvd on my computer now, but if I try to go into the menu's or skip to a different chapter it gives me the same error it did before and dies...

What is the reasoning?
