    I went to Hardware, Sound it only offers me Play (Windows Media Player) - which seems to have some decoding problem, take no action, open folders to view files (files explorer) and ask me every time. VLC is not showing.
    Thanks

    I set it to 'Ask me Everytime' and its playing the DVD but I don't want to mark this as solved as I don't know what player is playing and I would like to associate VLC with Autoplay. Thanks All for your help.

    Vidolan VLC works


    Thanks CharlieVA for suggesting Videolan VLC Player. Its Free and it works!!
    Here are the steps, so everyone can benefit.
    1. Download Videolan VLC Player from the Internet. Click Run. Like all free software adding them and their partners to toolbars etc is pre checked. Uncheck all the ones you do not want and click Next until finished. There will be a clown hat at the bottom of your screen. Click it to launch the software.
    2. Right click on the Windows icon, then Control Panel, then Hardware/ Sound, you will see Autoplay under Devices and Printers
    3. Click on Change Default Settings for Media or Devices. For ‘Play DVD and for enhanced DVD’, choose Videolan VLC as the default option from the drop down.
    4. Click Save and you are good to Go !!
