Best Answer

There are a number of possible reasons for a DVD not to play on a DVD player. In an effort to reduce piracy, DVDs and DVD players are designed for a group of large geographical zones, and a DVD intended for the European zone will not play on an American DVD player. Aside from that, the DVD could be damaged, or the DVD player could be damaged. Or not plugged in.
