How can I change the language of a CD or DVD?

I bought myself Zumba, a fitness video, but it plays in another language. How do I change the language to English?

    We are trying to play a DREAMWorks video on Windows Medai Player. The teacher has always played this in Spanish with English subtitles. This year she went to play and it is in English. We have tried the advanced menu on the DVD but it doesn't seem to "take" and still plays in English

    DVD language settings allow you to specify what languages the DVD subtitle, soundtrack, and menu are in. The language settings are subject to the availability of each language on the DVD and can be overridden by selections that you make in the default DVD menu.

    1. Select 'Settings' of the DVD player via the remote.
    2. Select Language from the menu.
    4. Use the navigation buttons on the remote and +/- buttons to bring your selections for DVD subtitles, soundtrack, or menu into focus.
    5. Press OK/ENTER to apply your selections and return to the TV Settings menu.

    I am assuming that you are using a TV. If not, tell us the media player you are using on your computer.
