    Windows media player will not play some DVDs?


    Windows media player will not play some DVDs. It does nothing when I push the play button.

    How can I fix this?

    Thank you for your help.

    That ability was removed from Win10. There may be an app for playing DVDs in the Store or, as I did, download and install the free VLC player.

    I too recommend installing VLC, it can play just about anything!
