WMP on Win8

My new Asus UX32VD will not play DVD's running from an external Optical drive.  I was told I would need to upgrade to Win8 Pro in order to play DVD's using WMP.  

I looked at the comparison chart for windows versions and there was no mention of DVD's playing capabilities in either version.

 It's seems odd to me the Win8 can't play DVD's in it's most basic version.

It can't. You would need to buy an addon or simply use free software like vlc.
