install libdvd.

check to make sure you installed dvd support, it is not installed by default.
linux treats you like you know what you are doing, windows treats you like a braindead monkey.

with linux, you tell it what to do, with windows, it does whatever it wants, which is why it is so unreliable and insecure.

Get xine. You will need to get libdvdcss and the xinelib and xineUI. I also suggest getting the Win32 CODEC, if it is legal to do so in your area.
