I suggest you install smplayer ...

I always use this application to play video ....

Go to synaptic, and search smplayer ...

Thank you

I have installed sm player as suggested and it plays the VCD's and DVD's - in the process Totem Player has been removed since I cannot see it in the menu. In any case all i want is a vcd/dvd player that works.

The problem VCD was one with an auto executing and an exe file. I've got around this problem by running it through Wine and running it direct from there.

thank you for the help
