Why can’t I play dvds on Windows 10?
Microsoft has removed the built-in support for video DVD playing in Windows 10. So we recommend you to use VLC player, a free third party player with DVD support integrated. Open VLC media player, click Media and select Open Disc. Now you can play the video on your DVD.
When I put a CD in my computer nothing happens Windows 10?

Does Windows 10 have a CD player?
On computers running Windows 10, you use Windows Media Player to play audio CDs, to copy audio files to your computer, and to burn songs onto a CD. If you have a CD or DVD disc drive or slot on your computer, insert a music CD, label side up for horizontal drives.
How do I load a CD on Windows 10?
To install a program that comes on a CD or DVD, insert the program disc into your computer’s disc drive or tray, label side up (or, if your computer has a vertical disc slot, insert the disc with the label side facing left). The AutoPlay dialog box appears. Select the option to run Install or Setup.
How do I play a CD on my laptop without CD drive?
One solution is to simply add an optical drive to the computer. Internal models were standard for many years, but compact computers like ultra slim laptops and all-in-one desktops just don’t have the space them these days. A better option is to use an external CD/DVD-writer that plugs into a USB socket on the computer.
Does Windows 10 have built in DVD player?
Surprisingly, there’s no built in DVD playing capabilities in Windows 10. These days, that might seem to make sense since most machines come without a disc drive, but if your computer comes with a DVD drive or you own and want to use an external DVD drive, playing a DVD might seem needlessly confusing.
How do I get Windows 10 to automatically play DVDs?
In the Control Panel, type DVD in the search box. Click on the Play CDs or other media automatically under the AutoPlay category. In the AutoPlay window, scroll down until you see the DVD category. Choose an action for all different types of the DVD media.

Launch VLC Media Player, insert a DVD, and it should rev up automatically. If not, click Media > Open Disc > DVD, then click the play button. You’ll find a full range of buttons to control playback.
When I put a CD in my computer nothing happens?
What’s most likely happened is that the “auto run” feature has been turned off – either on your system or on that specific drive. That means that by definition nothing happens when you insert a disc.
Why won’t my CD play on my computer?
The problem happens mostly because of bad drivers, but sometimes it occurs because of a dirty or scratched surface on your CD. Your operating system provides you with a tool to update drivers for your CD-ROM drive. Try the CD again. If it doesn’t work, just try another disk.
Why my CD is not detected?
If the CD-ROM works in Safe Mode but not in normal Windows, a running program is causing the issue, or the drivers are corrupt. Open Device Manager, highlight and remove the CD-ROM by pressing the delete key. After deleting the CD-ROM, reboot the computer. Windows should then detect the CD-ROM and reinstall it.
How do I play old CDs on Windows 10?
