    No DVD Playback After Upgrading to Windows 10


    I am running Windows 10 Home 64 Bit. After upgrading from Win7, I cannot play back or burn DVDs. I can however play audio CDs. I have tried the registry tricks suggested in other posts, but without success.

    Hi, there's no native DVD player in Win 10. You need to download 3rd party software- desktop or universal app. Easy to get for free (just search - or you probably know one already).

    It has already been suggested to you.
    I just want to add that I use VLC and it plays both DVDs and CDs. ( You can set Windows Media Player to play audio CDs if you want ).
    VLC can play almost all type of formats. So you don't have to worry about installing codecs at all. It is well known and widely recommended.

    Also, for burning CD/DVD's the free Imgburn will do what you need.
