  1. I can install software but not play a dvd.


    Hi!

    This has been an issue for quite a while. While I can install software from cd/dvd's in my TSSTcorp DVD+-RW SH-216BB ATA Device I can not get it to play any movies. This is a DVD Drive specifically labeled to play CD's, DVD-RW and DVD and yet none play. The drive is recognized in Explorer. But when I attempt to play the drive bay pops open and a message pops up asking me to insert a disc.

    I have un-installed and re-installed drivers for this drive. I generally use the VLC player for playing video.

    Windows Build 1909

    I've checked the registry values and they are correct. I don't know what else to do.

    Help???

    :)

  2. Can no longer play dvds.

    Did you follow all of the steps in the list I gave you?

    What type of DVD are you trying to play? Will it play correctly in another PC? Will another DVD play in this PC?

    What DVD player are you using to play the DVD? You must have a DVD player to play DVD's in Windows 10. Try one of these:
