    Win 10 and DVD problem


    I have a win 10 Desktop. (Intel NUC). I have attached an external DVD player using usb.

    It shows up in Device Mgr and says it is working fine.

    However, I can not get it to play a DVD. I even bought the DVD player app from Microsoft ($14.95) but still can't get it to play a DVD.

    I have the computer updated using MS Update. It says I have the latest drivers for the DVD drive.

    Sure would like to get this working.

    :)

    Burned DVD's Work in SOME players

    In that case, it is possible the problem is with the blu ray player not supporting DVD+R disks.

    Suggest you check to make sure: it's possible you can overcome this problem by simply burning DVD-R instead of DVD+R. Check your blu ray compatibility list first.

    Win 10 and DVD problem

    dvd missing in win 10

    Hello Eddie,

    Thank you for keeping us posted on the status of the issue. I would like to assist you further from here.

    Refer to the below steps for you to help ascertain the exact issue in this situation.

    Step 1

    Open the Disk Management Console to find out if the drive has no drive letters assigned to it, as a result of which it is not detected. Follow the below steps.

    • Right click on the Windows Start Button.
    • Select Disk Management from the User Menu.
    • Check for the DVD drives.
    • Assign a drive letter for the DVD drive if it is not assigned any.
    Step 2

    Check if the DVD drive is detected from the
    Device Manager and check if there is a yellow triangle next to it. Follow the below steps.

    • Right click on the Windows Start Button.
    • Select Device Manager from the User Menu.
    Step 3

    Check if the drive detected properly if you restart the computer ion Safe Mode.

    Safe Mode With Networking:

    Follow the steps to boot to Safe mode with networking:


    • Press the ‘Windows + R’ key on the keyboard.

    • In the ‘Run’ windows type ’MSCONFIG’ and click ‘Ok’.

    • Click the ‘Boot’ tab.

    • Under ‘Boot Options’, select the ‘Safe Boot’ option.

    • Choose the type of safe mode by selecting one of the options below the Safe boot check box: Select ‘Network’.

    • Click OK and then restart your PC.
    Step 4

    Access the BIOS of the computer and check if the DVD drive is detected. If it doesn't, then Windows will not be able to detect the same.

    Note: Refer to the manufacturer's manual and check for further information on how to access BIOS settings.

    As a troubleshooting step, I would suggest you to follow these steps to deploy the
    Windows in built troubleshooter:

    a) Write Troubleshooting in the search box and hit enter.

    b) Click on Troubleshooting
    tab.

    c) Click on view all option on the upper left corner.

    d) Select the Hardware and Device
    option from the list.

    e) Click Next to run the Hardware and Device
    Troubleshooter.

    Additionally, also refer to the below link on
