Windows Media Edition and iTunes--WTF!?!

Okay, I have no idea why iTunes WILL NOT play my dvd on my laptop. Windows Media Player will play it. Quicktime will play it. A bunch of other preloaded dvd readers will play it. But I WANT it on iTunes. WTF?!?!?!?

It doesn't even recognize that there is anything in the drive--either audio OR video. When I insert the dvd, I get a list of programs that will open the damn thing. . .none of which is iTunes! What is wrong here?

Yes, I went to Apple support. I updated iTunes and QuickTime. I updated the driver on my dvd player. I went to Microsoft to find what they had to say about it.

Is this the new Zune strategy? To freeze anything Apple out of even running on a Windows PC?

Can anybody help me?

If I am not mistaken, this is the same problem that has prevented me from burning my gift CDs - it just plain doesn't recognize the media in the drive. John has been all over the apple page and derived that "sometimes it just doesn't work."

Where is Bill Gates when you need him?!?!?!
