Does this happen to any DVD or just one? Could be only the DVD. If it is a copied DVD it could just be a fualty DVD. As you can play music fine i doubt it is the speakers. What player are you using?

regarding the windows 98 updates,what is the exact error you are getting...you should still be able to download all your windows 98 updates,up until the date microsoft ceased support for it........i cant remember when that was now but it should say on there site...a silly question have you checked to make sure your date and time are accurate

as to the dvd question what software are you playing it through and have you installed any codecs,and *** maynardvdm said is it a copied dvd.....
