    Sounds like it's time for a reinstall

    And I know this is super late, but I tested it and the DVD Player app does work with ISO files. You just have to double-click on one to mount it using the built-in image mounter and it should work just like a physical disc.

    Not quite, that thread is more for the hardware not showing up. This thread is more for people talking about DVD playback software which assumes the hardware already works.

    But that's what I'm saying too. I see them in the "This PC" page. I can click "Eject", and the thing ejects. But when I click "Open", it asks for a disc..., and that's when a disc is inserted. So....

    Did you test the drive in another system to see if the drive actually still works? I actually have two drives that do that here, one is a Plextor which uses a LiteOn OEM drive that does that, the laser actually burned out and the other is a Pioneer SCSI DVD slot drive that does that, the Pioneer will randomly read if you keep fighting with the system as it will keep ejecting the disk. Didn't you say your drive doesn't work in Win8 in the other thread?

    Yeah, I did. Both of them work. They worked in Windows 8.1, and Windows 7. I have 3 other systems with Windows 10, and the DVD players work in all 3.

    And, actually, I did the upgrade from an .ISO that I burned in that system.

    I have tested and found VLC Media Player, KMPlayer, DivX Player and a new player called Macgo Free Media Player all could free play dvd on Windows 10.
