    I bought two Disney movies, and they don't work in my computer. The drive doesn't even begin to read them, just spins them around and stops. Windows tells me that there is no disc in drive.

    I tried to play those movies through Wii, but they didn't work - I'm guessing because of the copy protection? Superdump didn't work either, error reading sector data.

    Anything I could do with my Wii to get those to work, or do I really have to buy a DVD player? :|

    How are you trying to play them on your wii?
    The Wii can't just read movie DVD's, you'll have to use some special software

    Wii isn't really meant to play them, so there could be unexpected hiccups. But if the computer won't either... Hmm. Did you try them in a PS2 or anything of that sort?

    My wii plays every other DVD movie just fine through MplayerCE, these two are the only ones giving me problems.

    My PS2 has a broken drive, so that's not an option. They do work on a friends DVD player though, I just find it very weird that my computer isn't capable of reading them.

    I mean, you could even first try to understand what you're doing...

    1)Superdump is for Wii/GC-Games. NO Movies.
    --> 1.1) Even IF it would work, you would also get an .iso file. What would you do with it? Think, please...

    2) Have you installed MPlayer-CE and their cIOS?

    3) Compability is VERY, VERY, VERY bad, don't expect that the DVDs will work on the Wii, I would even say forget the whole DVD-Movie/Wii-Thing!!!

    @PC: Pretty Off-Topic, and the wrong section, but more Info? Which OS, etc? On Ubuntu, you need to install first an Package, so that it can read Copy-Protected DVDs, for example...

    On your Wii you might need DVDx.

    On your PC, get AnyDVD. This software should help you with troubling copy protections on DVDs.

    I was only using Superdump to check if the Wii is able to read the disk from beginning to the end, and it wasn't.

    And it's not an operating system related fault on my computer, the drive doesn't even begin to read the disc. Not in Windows, not during POST, not during boot. So AnyDVD can't help me, because Windows doesn't even recognize the disc. Maybe I'll really have to buy a DVD player :/

    e: And yes, I have tried both DVDX and the cios from Mplayer-CE. Again, every other DVD movie works fine, these two Disney titles don't.
