Default DVD's play with cut off screen

Every DVD I try to play in Media Player Version 11 for XP is off center
with the right side cut off. I've tried changing from full screen and the
zoom, but nothing works. Any suggestions?

Also, when I do try to use full screen, it never actually goes FULL screen,
it still has about a 2 inch black box around the picture.

In XP, Media Player isn't really suited to DVD's. It is in Win 7. You
could download vlcplayer.

I was having that problem too but I finally just gave up and switched to Windows 7. I also bought one of those touch screens too so that I don't have to wear out my wrist using a mouse anymore. I'm really liking that and I love that my DVDs don't cut off anymore too!
