What message did you get when you tried to play the DVD? My guess is you don't have DVD drivers. I have the same problem on my more modern laptop. I tried finding the drivers online, and I did, but I had to pay for them. It's a work PC I use, so I didn't buy the.

It's quite possible that you need to install the DVD codecs.
I've used this before and it works:
The codecs go along with Maximus DVD Player:

Current systems: WHAT OS, BackTrack-raw, PCLinuxOS, Peppermint OS 6, Kali Linux

and a custom Linux From Scratch server hosting a bunch of top secret stuff.
