  2. Windows DVD Player installed in Windows 10 but not recognizing DVD to play

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community.

    The DVD Player app only supports the following:

    a. DVDs from a file backup is not supported, the app currently only plays DVD movies on optical discs.

    b. The App will only play DVD's not Blu-ray discs.

    If you satisfy both the categories, I would suggest you follow the steps below and see if it helps:

    Update DVD/CD-ROM drives from Device Manager.


    • Press Windows key + R key. Type "devmgmt.msc" and click Enter.

    • Expand the DVD/CD-ROM drives.

    • Double-click on the DVD/CD-ROM drive.

    • In Properties, go to Drivers Tab and click on Update.
    If this does not work you might have to Uninstall and then reinstall your drivers in compatibility mode.

    Follow the steps to uninstall and reinstall the driver.


    • Press Windows key + R key. Type "devmgmt.msc" and click Enter.

    • Expand the DVD/CD-ROM drives.

    • Double-click on the DVD/CD-ROM drive.

    • In Properties, go to Drivers Tab and click on Uninstall.

    • Reinstall your audio driver from Manufacturer's Website in Compatibility mode.

    • Restart your system
    Hope this helps. Please respond if you have further related queries.

    Regards,

    Cannot play CD/DVD player.

    Hi, Keith.

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community, and we in Community will try to resolve your issue the best way we can.

    I would suggest that you check if the CD/DVD file is supported by your player. If it is then I would like to suggest that you un-install and re-install the CD/DVD driver and check if the same issue persist. To do so follow the steps mentioned below:

    • Click on the Start button, and type “Device Manager” on the search bar.
    • Open Device Manager, expand "CD/DVD ROM”
    • Find and double-click the driver from the left panel to uninstall.
    • Right-click the driver and click Uninstall.
    • Windows will prompt you to confirm the device’s removal. Click
      OK
      to remove the driver.
    • After the uninstallation is complete, reboot your computer.
    • After you have successfully uninstalled the driver, please go to the computer manufacturer’s website, download the Windows 10 driver for your computer and check.

    Hope this information was helpful. Please let us know the status of your issue so that we can assist you further.
