    Windows 10: Insert Disc into drive F: Not reading/working/cd and dvd

    Hi and thanks for your help,
    I've tried various things, googling things, I am a beginner in computer tech literacy. My windows 10 is not playing or reading my F drive cd's and dvd's. I've read you have to BUY an app to play dvds, but its not reading my cds either in WMP, or VLC player. My drive manager says my drive is fine.

    Hi, true you can't play DVD's in Win 10 without an additional program.
    Not true that you have to buy one- you can use freeware.

    If you open explorer, do you see your optical drive in the left hand pane? (Make sure you insert an audio disk).

    In VLC, with a standard audio CD, you can play it like this (it's a bit awkward, and I'd not do it like this personally).
    Media, Open Disc, Audio CD, Play. (If you select Track 0 you should see a track list).

    Once you see the CD in explorer your can rt click it and you should find a play option.
