|"I'm trying to play a dvd that has a burnt movie download"|
That still doesn't answer the question. What type of file is it? Is it a compressed copy of a retail movie DVD? Or is it a movie you downloaded online, thru the torrents maybe? If it's an AVI or MPEG movie as was mentioned above, you'd need a DVD player that supports DivX or better yet, DivX Ultra (about $40 at Walmart). I got mine thru the Philips Outlet - $18 shipped.
