Dvd rw does not read dvd

i recently bought a wide screen TFT PC monitor. and when i thought of watching movies on it, my two year old soni DVD-RW(DW-G120A) didnt allow me.
i really tried hard, but in no ways its allowing me to play any dvd movies on it. CDs, data DVDs gets detected on it, but if i insert a movie DVD, it does not detect it on 'My Computer'. shows as '0 files'.

i have upgraded the drive firmware to MYS6, which made my drive region code free. also i m using KProbe2, but even in that i cant see movie DVD.

Is my DVD hardware faulty, or is it the OS problem? BTW i use WinXP SP3. On the OS side (device manager)it shows region code 5. can anyone help me with this?
