Why can't I play DVDs in my Dell laptop?
Posted on 2016-08-01
It's the first time since wiping out the Windows 7 partition installed when I purchased my Dell laptop 3 1/2 years ago, that I've attempted to play a DVD under the new Windows 10 partition. It's not working! I am presented with two options; RealPlayer and the app store. Since I've been planning on removing RealPlayer from my system, I elected to try my luck in the app store. I downloaded and installed the first thing I saw and attempted to play the DVD that was in the drive. As you might imagine, the application did everything but play the DVD, including repeated attempts to get me to "upgrade." I thought that Windows media player would play the DVD. Either it couldn't, or I don't know how to get it to see the drive. I've been playing DVDs in my computers since windows XP! in the good old days, my computers came with a DVD application. I guess that's no longer the case.
