I would try to change the option to something else and exit out of Prefrences, then go back in and change it back again.

Edit: Make sure you are going to "System Preferences", then "CDs & DVDs", then you'll what to change the last option that says "When you insert a video DVD:".

I don't mean to be a stickler or mean, but this kind of thing really should be reserved for the applications or hardware forum (depending on if you mean the drive or the program). We've all made these mistakes before, so it's no big deal, but it'd be a good idea to note that while the Switcher Hangout's the biggest place on the forum, it's not for everything.

'cause when it rains, you know it pours.
