I get three message problems:
1. Windows Media Player cannot play the DVD because the disc prohibits
playback in your region of the world. You must obtain a disc that is
intended for your geographic region. (I am in India)

what model DVD drive do you have?

The world has been divided into 6 different region. Therefore, a DVD coming from a Region other then our own (Region 5) will not play on your DVD drive without a firmware up date to Region 0, or a software that will trick you computer in thinking it is in the right Region.

Here are the Region divisions:
0 Informal term meaning "worldwide". Region 0 is not an official setting; discs that bear the region 0 symbol either have no flag set or have region 1–6 flags set.
1 United States, U.S. territories, Canada, Bermuda
2 Europe (except Russia, Ukraine, and Belarus), Middle East, Egypt, Japan, South Africa, Swaziland, Lesotho, French overseas territories, Greenland
