    Not a bother.

    You could buy an external DVD drive to connect up whenever you want to. They are a lot cheaper than replacements for fitted/internal DVD drives and can be moved from computer to computer over time.

    You could also disable the non-functioning DVD drive in Bios [or just in Device manager] to stop its ghost appearing in, say, File explorer.

    Oh, one more quick question...my Troubleshooter appears to be non-functional as well. How would one go about resetting that little jewel?

    I don't know much about troubleshooters but perhaps it was not written to be able to cope with faulty hardware.

    There might be some guidance in this tutorial
    Troubleshoot problems - TenForumsTutorials
    or perhaps you could post a request for assistance there.

    Best of luck,

    My wife has a Toshiba Satellite C655 Notebook about 5 years old and I had to replace the Optical Disc Drive just 3 months ago as it didn't play.

    It may have also something to do with the Windows DVD Player app. I think it's required to play DVDs on Windows 10, unless I'm mistaken. It costs US$15 though, so just downloading VLC for free would be my choice.

    Microsoft's support article says that app is required for editions of Windows that can't play DVDs, but which editions are that?

    I use VLC for DVD Movies and downloaded movies, works with some formats such as .flv. VLC: Official site - Free multimedia solutions for all OS! - VideoLAN
